CPA Exam New Research Format on Simulations

This topic discusses how to complete the CPA Simulation Research/Authoritative Literature Tab.

The AICPA combined the Research tab and the Authoritative Literature (previously called Standards or Code) tab into one tab that encompasses every aspect of the Research part of the Simulations. Beginning July 1, 2008, candidates were able to click on one Research/Authoritative Literature tab and read the Research question, search the Standards or Code, choose the correct paragraphs, and access the Directions and Help topics associated with the Research question when needed. Additionally, instead of copying and pasting the relevant paragraphs, candidates need to choose which paragraph they want in their answer from a list that is supplied as soon as they choose the Standard or Code.

The CPA Gleim Online continues to offer you the best opportunity to practice Simulations in a real CPA Exam testing environment. If you have not yet purchased CPA Gleim Online, view the simulation format in our Free Demo of the first study unit.
