Exam Structure
Each Exam section is delivered in five smaller sections called testlets. Each testlet features different item types (see below) used to test your knowledge and skills.

Exam Item Types
You will be tested during the CPA Exam using three types of test items that appear within specific testlets in each section.

  • Multiple-Choice Questions (MCQ)
    The multiple-choice portions are presented in the first two testlets of each Exam section.
  • Task-Based Simulations (TBS)
    Task-based simulations are condensed case studies that test accounting knowledge and skills using real life, work-related situations. All task-based simulations are intended to assess knowledge and skills that are appropriate for an entry-level accountant.
  • Written Communication Tasks
    Written communication tasks appear only in the BEC section of the CPA Exam. For each of three written communication tasks, you must read a scenario and then write an appropriate document relating to the scenario. The instructions state what form the document should take (such as a memo or letter) and its focus.
