Becoming a CPA


All parts of the exam are computerized and test your level of accounting knowledge.

  • A passing score is 75 percent or better.
  • Timing is crucial! Once you pass your first section of the exam, you have 18 months to pass all four sections before you start to lose previously passed sections. Good news - once you pass all four parts, you've passed for life.
  • There are four sections:
    1. Auditing and Attestation (AUD),
    2. Business Environment and Concepts (BEC),
    3. Regulation (REG), and
    4. Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR).
