The official handbook for individuals who plan to take the CPA exam is the Candidate Bulletin.
The bulletin outlines the responsibilities of the CPA exam candidate and how the examination process works. It covers topics including how to apply, how and when to schedule the exam, what rules are at the test centers, when to expect scores and what topics are covered on the exam.
All candidates should first read the Candidate Bulletin. This document may be the most important preparation for the CPA exam process.
