Maeve, Hello I found so many sites on CPA prep test. You can dowload so many sample test and practice tutorials on your computer. You tube has many free tutorials too. Here is some sites I found with some sample test. This depends on the state you are in as well. Laws Vary in every state on exams. You can be certified in one state and if you move a need to take a new test for certifications in another place. Tutorial
The tutorial is a guided tour of the CPA Examination. It demonstrates the functionality of question types, tools, resources and navigation found in the Uniform CPA Examination. The tutorial is not available at test centers and does not contain actual Examination content.
Sample Tests http://www.aicpa.org/becomeacpa/cpaexam/forcandidates/tutorialandsampletest/pages/exam_tutorial_parallel.aspx Copy and paste put in address bar. Or you can google Prep test for the CPA exam and practice. That will give you great ideas on what you will need to do to prepare to pass the test. I think you will do just fine. Yes, make sure to ask the questions of the college of your choosing if the pre test exam are covered. More than likely then not. I would always ask if in doubt. Be diligent you are leading the way. You are paying them to teach you to prepare for the opportunity, to have a great career. So ask questions. There are books on Amazon and bookstores, your college that you can find all the information to prep for the testing. Good luck. More to follow.
The sample tests provide candidates with a preview of the CPA Examination experience. It is a functional replica of the CPA Examination, and provides candidates with an opportunity to become familiar with the Examination’s format, in an interactive environment. Candidates are advised to familiarize themselves with the Examination functionality demonstrated in the tutorial before they review the sample tests.
The sample test software allows candidates to answer test questions that represent all of the question types found on the CPA Examination: multiple choice (MCQ), written communication (WC) and task-based simulation (TBS). The sample tests do provide answers to sample questions but are not intended for use as study materials in preparation for the Examination. http://www.aicpa.org/becomeacpa/cpaexam/forcandidates/tutorialandsampletest/pages/exam_tutorial_parallel.aspx this is the site I used for information. This is called citations. When you write papers, you will find that you must always use refrences and citations. Then your teacher can go look and see where you got your information from. You will do fine.
