Tutorial and Sample Test

Location - CPA-exam.org

Effective with the July/August 2008 testing window, a change to the directions and the functionality of the research question type will appear in the Audit (AUD), Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR), and Regulation (REG) section of the exam.

The tutorial and sample tests reflecting the changes to the research question type are now posted on the CPA Exams website at cpa-exam.org under the heading Tutorial and Sample Tests. Please note, you will find two versions of the tutorial and sample test on the website one for candidates testing before July 1 and one for those testing after July 1. Select the appropriate version for the dates(s) you have scheduled your AUD, FAR, or REG examination.

To prepare for each section of the Uniform CPA Examination candidates are responsible for reviewing the Uniform CPA Examination tutorial and sample tests. Thorough familiarity with the examinations functionality, format, and directions is required before candidates report to test centers. Failure to follow the directions on how to respond, may adversely affect candidate scores.
