If you're preparing to sit for the CPA Exam, you’ll want to learn more about what’s tested and how you’re tested. For Exam content, look no further than the CPA Exam Blueprints. We encourage you to review this highly-important resource that contains valuable information to aid your studies. The Blueprints are typically published one to two times per year and detail the minimum level of knowledge and skills you must have to qualify for initial licensure. Download the appropriate Blueprints below and use in conjunction with other Exam preparation materials available to you.

Within the Blueprints, you will find the following information for each Exam section:

  • Content organized by Area, Group and Topic along with score weighting

  • Sample task statements that represent what you may be asked to do when testing

  • Skill levels at which tasks are tested

  • Reference materials that support the sample task statements

  • Number of item types you must complete (multiple-choice questions, task-based simulations and written communication tasks)

  • Score weighting of each item type
