Inside the CPA Exam

The CPA Exam is a four-part exam that tests the various skills entry level accountants need in order to practice public accounting.

Each section of the CPA Exam is tested separately at a Prometric test center.

“My ReadySCOREs were all between 81 and 85 and I passed all tests with scores between 88 and 96. I felt it prepared me more than adequately and in very little time compared to other programs.”
