The Next Generation of the CPA Exam

“Success is no accident It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love os what you are doing or learning to do.” – Pele

I just received a press release about the new Exam.

AICPA_ThisWayToCPA_logo_WEB-1jl846vNational Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) and Prometric are pleased to announce the successful launch of an updated version of the Uniform CPA Examination.

The next generation Exam, which began testing on April 1, has added additional assessment of higher-order cognitive skills that test a candidate’s critical thinking, problem solving and analytical ability. The Exam also makes greater use of task-based simulations (TBSs) as a means of assessing these higher-order skills. Recent research confirms that CPAs are now performing tasks that rely upon these skills earlier in their careers.
