    Hello everyone. I am new to this board and I will begin the process of studying for the CPA exam in August. I plan on taking at least 1 part of the exam during the Oct/Nov window and I’m curious as to what kind of changes will be made to the exam in 2013. Is there a particular section of the exam that will get more difficult in 2013? I was thinking I should start with AUD or REG since I took Auditing and Federal Taxation last semester and the material is still fresh in my mind but I worry that FAR or BEC will get more difficult if they keep changing and adding stuff to them.

    I know that each candidate should decide for themselves which part to take first but I will appreciate any info or intel you guys can share. Thanks!

    Thanks for the info @leshiggitydonatello. It’s good to know there will be no changes to any part except AUD in 2013 .

    I think I will start will AUD in October but I’m still undecided as to which part I will tackle after that. I was thinking REG but after reading a few posts on this board about that part I wonder if BEC would be a better choice for a recent grad like me.
