This one should instill some excitement. My boss has always acted insecure and jealous of my success. Today I finally informed him that I had passed two of my exams so far, with a 91 and a 89–both of which I am very proud of receiving. He (in front a colleague) immediately went into a rampage about how the exams are far easier than they used to be since the nation needs more CPAs, and therefore the AICPA makes the exams easier so more people can pass. He took his exams around 2006–he may have forgotten that he already told me that he had failed one of the exams and didn’t perform so well on the others. (By 2006 the exam had already changed from having to take the entire exam at once to being able to take the sections at different times, so he didn’t experience the marathon paper and pencil days.)
So, is the exam really easier than it used to be? I haven’t looked into statistics concerning pass rates and the number of test takers each year.
