When is the best time to begin studying for the CPA Exam? How far in advance of the exam should I begin studying?
Study schedules depend on each person's drive and capabilities. We have designed Interactive Study Calendars to assist our students and increase their flexibility. Your past studies and work experience should provide you with a solid foundation you can build upon by reviewing right up to the final days before the exam. Most importantly, during your preparation, familiarize yourself with the style and computerized format of the CPA Exam and its test-taking conditions.
Though it is not recommended to sit for the exam with a minimal amount of preparation time, Kaplan CPA Review's Review Course would give you the most comprehensive preparation available for an unpredictable or short-term schedule.

The Uniform CPA Exam is administered by the AICPA, but individual state Boards of Accountancy set the requirements for their respective state or jurisdiction. There are currently 55 jurisdictions in which the CPA Exam is offered. In the most general terms, a candidate for the exam usually requires an undergraduate degree in accounting. Many jurisdictions require 150 semester hours of education with the focus on accounting and specific accounting coursework. See if you meet the requirements for the CPA Exam in your jurisdiction.
U.S. citizens can take the exam at any of the authorized Prometric exam locations in 55 U.S. jurisdictions. Candidates must meet the requirements of the jurisdiction where they will become licensed to practice.
Candidates who did not receive their education in the United States may be eligible to take the CPA Exam. Candidates must meet the requirements of one of the 55 jurisdictions or states to take the CPA Exam. Often this includes a course on U.S. Federal Taxation and U.S. Business Law. Foreign candidates will have to have their credentials (transcripts) evaluated by an evaluation service company. Jurisdictions and states specify which companies they accept, so make sure you check with your state before you get your credentials evaluated.
