California CPA Exam - pathway 1 vs. pathway 2 ?


J

Jay

Hi,

Sorry if this is not the right alias to post this question..

I wish to give the CPA exams in the state of California. It offers 2
pathways.. pathway 1 : in which I can clear any 2 of the 4 tests, and
later take the other 2; and pathway 2 : which is in accordance with
the Uniform Accountancy Act (UAA), in which I have to give exam for
all 4 tests, pass 2 and score atleast 50 in the other 2.

I, having a full-time job, am feeling like I should go for pathway 1
(as I just need to study for 2 tests at first). But I once I clear
all the tests using pathway 1, I have heard that the grades may not be
transferable to other states ? Is that true ? Should one always go
for pathway 2 ?

Does any one know the pros and cons of both the pathways ?

Thanks in advance..
-Jay.

When talking about other states you have to directly contact their State
Boards of Accountancy. You might want to start with a phone call to our
Board at 916-263-3680.

Our two path design has an interesting political history that you just
don't see in other states.
