Kaplan CPA Review provides a broad selection of Web-based simulations that were modeled after the AICPA format. Exam candidates need to practice with simulations prior to their exam day to become familiar with the item format, the research database, and the spreadsheet and word processing software used exclusively on the CPA exam (not Excel or Word). Practice with the Kaplan CPA Review simulations will ensure that the candidate is familiar with the functionality of the simulations, including the tabs, icons, screens, and tools used on the exam.
