The AICPA has released its new CPA Exam Blueprint, which outlines the format and content of the exam. Following a deep review of the topics covered in 2019, the Final Practice Analysis provides insights into the changes to the current exam. This update is much smaller than the expected impact of CPA Evolution, which will overhaul the structure of the exam.

AICPA Publication: “Maintaining the Relevance of the Uniform CPA Examination: Practice Analysis Final Report”
