What is the AICPA Blueprint?
This is basically an official guide to help CPA Candidates know what topics are tested on the exam.
Therefore, students often ask me how important it is to follow the Blueprint when studying for their CPA exam section.
Many attempt to methodically review the blueprint and its updates during their studies, but often wonder what the phrases “Remembering and Understanding” or “Analysis” really mean.
The answer is that each section’s skill allocations are different (e.g. FAR, AUD, REG, and BEC).
If you intend to sit for the exam, reading over the content covered for each exam can be very helpful to at least give you a general idea of what you are in for, and the commitment required to be successful.
Now, will reading the entire thing alone prepare you for the exam?
You must commit to a review course that will provide you with the comprehensive knowledge that you will need to be successful on the exam.
The difficulty of the CPA Exam is common knowledge.
Therefore, as you embark on the journey, the Blueprint is the perfect resource to see what you’re up against.
Review courses and supplemental support will then provide you with elaborate information, and real exam examples that will enable you to confidently sit for the exam and become a CPA.
