The next CPA Exam is launching on April 1, 2017. The Wiley CPAexcel online course has been updated in accordance with AICPA’s content and structural changes. Read more to get all of the details.
The AICPA has replaced the Content Specification Outlines (CSOs) with Blueprints for the next CPA Exam, testable starting April 1, 2017. Download a complete summary of the April 2017 Wiley CPAexcel online course changes to see where they have been incorporated into your course.
All Wiley CPAexcel course content has been updated to reflect the new AICPA Blueprint. In addition, it has been analyzed with respect to presentation and assessment to ensure that you are prepared to answer questions at the appropriate cognitive level.
The vast majority of changes are structural in nature. The “next” CPA Exam will contain five testlets in each part of the exam (AUD, BEC, FAR and REG). The first two of these testlets contain multiple choice questions and the remaining three testlets contain task-based simulations and/or written communication tasks (BEC). The same adjustments have been made in the Wiley CPAexcel practice exams to provide you with an exam experience identical to what you will face on exam day.
