Dates and news that candidates should know:
February 7, 2010: Traditionally, the 7th is the last day you can sit for a section of the CPA Exam and still be eligible for the Wave 1 score release (if you're not included in Wave 1, you will have to wait another month until Wave 2, which begins mid-March).

The following are predictions based on historical trends:
February 12, 2010: AICPA is expected to start releasing BEC scores per my CPA Exam score release predictions (which historically are 50% spot-on for Wave 1). Once the AICPA starts releasing CPA Exam scores, California, Illinois, Virginia will follow suit.
NASBA usually releases scores within two business days after the AICPA release.
