Do you know what’s changed in the latest CPA Exam Blueprints?
The AICPA Exam’s team published its CPA Exam Blueprints (effective July 1, 2019) earlier this month. Have you reviewed the changes? If not, here’s a quick overview:
AUD - We expanded upon and added more detail related to audit data analytics but the revisions do not change the nature or scope of the content eligible for testing in the AUD section. The concepts we addressed are already covered by the AUD Blueprint (effective Jan. 1) and are currently eligible for testing.
BEC - We reorganized the area covering Information Technology (IT) to clarify the nature and scope of IT with respect to newly licensed practice. The revisions are not intended to significantly change the content eligible for testing.
REG - We added a section assumptions discussion to the REG Blueprint’s “Section Introduction” and clarified three representative task statements. The revisions do no change the nature and scope of content eligible for testing.
FAR - No revisions were made to this section of the Blueprints (effective July 1, 2019).
