Big Changes in The Works For The CPA Exam

2002 Year-in Review

As the profession swirled through a very public display of its dirty laundry, one of the biggest changes to hit the accounting profession in a long time quietly made progress this year as the AICPA and State Boards of Accountancy continued the move towards computerization of the CPA exam, now scheduled to take effect in the spring of 2004. Paper and pencil will soon be a thing of the past, and the content of the exam will be updated to more adequately reflect the demand for integrated knowledge.
