October 2014 – Fall Announcements

Garrett Gleim sends CPA candidates informative emails concerning different aspects of the CPA exam. Candidates can see the most recent email and all the archives here on the CPA Candidate Forum.

Happy October, everyone! The AICPA and Gleim have both been very busy lately – the AICPA with a couple of key announcements, and Gleim with our 2015 edition of the CPA Review System.

First, the AICPA has given us a warning that the Fall 2014 testing window will not be extended to accommodate the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S. This means that, even though many people will be celebrating Thanksgiving between Thursday, November 27, and Sunday, November 30, the last day of testing will remain November 30. Candidates should schedule test appointments as soon as possible for a date before Thanksgiving to avoid any complications due to the holiday.

In more exciting news, the AICPA also announced that testing for the CPA Exam in the Middle East is open to all qualified citizens and permanent residents of India as of October 1, 2014. Qualified candidates from India can now travel to any of the Middle East locations in Bahrain, Kuwait, Lebanon, and the United Arab Emirates to take their tests.

Finally, Gleim has some exciting news about our CPA Review System! The 2015 edition will feature the Gleim Instruct video series in all four CPA Exam Review Systems (AUD, BEC, FAR, and REG). These videos will be offered in the Gleim Premium CPA Review System, which will be available for sale in early November of this year. The new Premium CPA Review System also includes Access Until You Pass™, so you’ll never have to worry about your materials expiring as long as you’re studying for your exams. Candidates who purchase a Gleim CPA Review System prior to the release of the Premium system will continue to receive access to Gleim Instruct videos without having to upgrade to the new Premium Review System. Call 800.874.5346 or email accountingteam@gleim.com to learn more.

So, keep in mind that (1) if you’re planning to take any more sections of the exam this year, you need to schedule your testing appointment (ideally for a date before Thursday, November 27) immediately and (2) with the new Premium CPA Review System, you now have even more reasons to refer your friends and colleagues to Gleim!
