Kalamazoo, Mich. (March 14, 2003) -- Current and future accountants at Western Michigan University are getting a sneak preview of the new computer-based Uniform CPA Examination.


In preparation for the long-awaited move to a paperless test, slated for April 2004, a computer-based version of the exam is being tried out around the nation. More than 60 WMU accounting majors and accountants from around the state will sit March 14-15 for a pre-test of the Uniform CPA exam.


Pre-test participants may choose to take any or all of the exam's four sections. The computerized pre-test will include multiple-choice questions and case studies.


The last pencil-and-paper exam will be administered Nov. 5 and 6. Beginning April 5, 2004, the online exam will be offered up to six days a week, during two out of every three months throughout the year. The current test is offered only twice a year, in May and November.
