Newly enhanced and closely aligned with the ABV exam, the AICPA’s ABV Exam Review is the only comprehensive BV examination review program backed by the resources and collective expertise of business valuation professionals associated with the nation's premier membership organization for CPAs.

The AICPA’s ABV credential is the most rigorous and prestigious of the business valuation certifications. In a short time, it has become an essential marketing tool for the CPA planning to specialize in this lucrative practice area. A key step towards becoming an ABV, the ABV exam tests a comprehensive range of business valuation knowledge.

The ABV exam is offered in a two-part, modular format. Module 1, "Approaches", covers Content Specification Outline (CSO) section II and chapters 4-7 and 9 of ABV Exam Review. Module 2, "Analysis and Related" covers CSO sections I & III and chapters 1-3 and 8 of ABV Exam Review. Please reference the CSO before preparing for the ABV exam.
