The CPA Exam CSO

Question: Will the CPA exam topics change this year?

Answer: The AICPA is NOT likely to change the CSO (Content Specification Outline), which dictates what topics are tested on the CPA exam, until 2008, if then. Substantive changes to the CSO are based upon a practice analysis research project, which is not yet completed. A related issue is which tax laws and authoritative pronouncements will be tested. Currently, Gleim CPA Review covers exactly what is tested.
