AICPA Sample Test

To give CPA candidates a preview of the CPA Exam, the AICPA has assembled sample tests for each CPA Exam section.

By accessing the Sample Tests and corresponding tutorial via the AICPA’s website, candidates can become familiar with the format of the actual CPA Exam. Though the AICPA Sample Test cannot replace a CPA review course, candidates sitting for a section of the current or next version of the CPA Exam (or both) can take advantage of this tool to aid their CPA Exam preparation.
