OF CANDIDATES LIKED THE UPDATED CPA EXAM STRUCTURE.
I found the new version of the CPA Exam to be quite similar to the old version. Other than the fact that the interface looked slightly more modern, I felt like it was pretty much the same test.

POSITIVE CHANGE
the standardized 15-minute break WAS A FAVORITE AMONG 2017 TEST TAKERS.
I liked the new structure better than the old structure. It helped me to better focus on the problems and I actually finished with about 15 minutes to spare.
