The CPA exam is broken into 4 exams that must be passed with a 75 in each section. Each section must be completed and passed within an 18-month period. For example if you completed your first exam on June 1, 2018 you would have until January 1, 2020 to complete the last section of the exam. However, your effective date would be November 30, 2019 because January is a blackout month.
There are many methods of study for the CPA exam; most popular is the CPA exam review course.
Any of the many CPA exam review courses that are available should offer a CPA practice exam or a test bank of practice exam questions.
