A candidate who wishes to pass the CPA exam must be proficient in the areas of Accounting Theory, Accounting Practice, Auditing, and Business Law. This is a tremendous amount of material to understand, or to even review. Just because a person has studied in all these areas at the undergraduate or graduate level does not mean a person will pass the exam. "Only by diligent study, and a well-paced review will the candidate acquire the necessary educational background and confidence to pass." This can only be accomplished with a serious individual study program.
