How the CPA Exam Is Changing: The Information You Need to Prioritize What to Study and When to Take the Exam

Register now to view this 1-hour CPA Exam webinar that was hosted on April 26, 2018.

Every year brings changes to the CPA Exam, and this year is no exception. Find out what to expect over the next 12 months, and why 2018 may be the best year to prioritize taking the CPA Exam when you register to attend this on-demand free webinar.

During this on-demand webinar, we review the changes that have recently been introduced, one of which is already included in the BEC section of the exam.

Next, you’ll get details of the exam changes you can expect beginning July 2, 2018. While there are no major pronouncement changes, we’ll let you know what’s in and what’s out, so you can focus more of your precious time on new topics and not on the ones that will no longer be tested.

And finally, we’ll preview the more significant changes that are eligible for testing in January 2019. First is the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), which passed in late 2017 and is the most significant tax code change in decades. It will be eligible for testing in REG. The other big change, eligible for testing in FAR, is the inclusion of the new lease accounting standard issued by the FASB.

Given the big changes that are coming in January, a case can be made for prioritizing the REG and FAR sections of the exam before the end of the this year. We’ll lay out the pros and cons of taking them now versus later. You’ll come away from this webinar armed with the information you’ll need to decide what makes the most sense for you, and how to plan accordingly for the rest of the year.

Here’s just some of the information you’ll get when you attend this free 60-minute on-demand webinar on the most recent CPA Exam changes:

  • A new exam interface, a new score release schedule, and COSO’s new ERM Framework that took effect April 2
  • A detailed report on the July 1, 2018 content changes so you’ll know what—and what not—to study
  • Big changes coming in 2019: What they are and how they could change the way you prepare for the exam
  • Information to help you choose the most appropriate time to take FAR and REG

…and much more!
