The AICPA ABV Exam Review Course is the only review program backed by the resources and collective expertise of business valuation professionals associated with the AICPA. The goal of this review course is to prepare candidates to take and pass the Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) Exam. Individuals taking this course will receive an engaging and informative overview of all business valuation (“BV”) topics outlined in the ABV Exam’s Content Specification Outline (CSO). The CSO serves as the AICPA’s BV body of knowledge.

Attendees receive a printout of all slides from the presentation and a comprehensive workbook that includes over 300 practice questions to assist in exam preparation.

Why the ABV Exam Review Course?
When comparing exam takers who have completed the exam review course versus those who haven’t, there is an approximately 20% higher pass rate for review course participants.

Key Topics Covered in the ABV Exam Review Course
The Review Course covers those topics listed in the ABV Exam CSO, consisting of the following:

  • Foundation of Valuation Theory: This section covers professional standards including Statement on Standards for Valuation Services (VS Section 100), valuation for financial reporting, defining the valuation engagement, sources of economic and industry data, macro-economic and environmental analysis, industry analysis and subject entity analysis.
  • Implementation of Valuation Methods: This section covers the three primary valuation approaches and related hybrid approaches, valuing intellectual property and other intangible assets, valuation adjustments including discounts and premiums, reconciliation of indicated values and the conclusion of value.

NOTE: A candidate should not solely rely upon completing the ABV Exam Review Course to prepare for the ABV Examination. The course is not meant to teach topics to the candidate for the first time. A significant amount of independent reading and study will be necessary to prepare for the exam, regardless of whether the candidate attends the review course or not. See the 'Prepare' tab of the ABV Exam information webpage for more information.
