New References for CSOs

Question: I saw on the CPA web site that the references in the Content Specification Outline for the exam have been updated. Does that mean new content will be tested?

Answer: The CSOs remain unchanged since the implementation of CBT-e January 1, 2011. Only the references within the the Content Specification Outlines have changed. In one of Garrett Gleim’s recent Hot Topics articles, he discussed the changes to the References and the affect they will have on the exam.
