CPA Exam to Undergo Transformation

To all my young friends procrastinating on taking the CPA exam.   Stop wasting time and get it done before they change the rules and everything you learned gets changed and you have to start killing yourself again to prepare for the new content.   OK?   The excerpt below from the Journal of Accountancy tells the story.  To read the full article click on the link at the bottom of the post:

“The Uniform CPA Examination will be transformed beginning in 2011, with a new structure, format and content and supported by enhanced technology, the AICPA said in a letter Friday to state boards of accountancy.”

I know what you are thinking.  Who is the person in the photo?    Well, I normally do not like to promote the services of folks I do not know first hand, but this is Professor Elena Martina Navrulotova of Kiev University’s accounting department, who is offering tutoring services  for students preparing to take the CPA exam.  Anyone interested needs to contact the Kiev University accounting department directly, since I have no financial gain in providing this information.   Good luck, and let us know how the tutoring works out.

    Joel – I love your humor.

    I don’t know if the professor from Kiev is any good, but by the look on her face I think she is better off teaching classes in psychedelic mind bending.

    Anyone interested in preparing for the CPA may be better off looking at a program from Becker CPA Exam Review (where I work). There are some flaky people in the company, but nothing like the professor from Kiev!

    Dear Joel,

    For your information…. and this is a secret I don’t want you to share with anyone else on the blog (LOL)….

    I enrolled in Professor Navrulotova’s tutoring program and she’s very good. At the end of each session she passed out milk and cookies to all the students. The only criticism I have of her is that she was topless all the time, and some of the male students could not concentrate on the material.
