TR-34 APA® Managerial Accounting and Economics Study Guide

The APA® Managerial Accounting and Economics Study Guide is designed to provide the candidate with the majority of information needed to pass the Managerial Accounting and Economics module of the APA® examination. It is not intended to be used on a stand alone basis to study for the examination and should be used in conjunction with the prescribed COPAS Accounting Guidelines and Training & Reference materials. Each chapter in the guide corresponds to a specific area of the test and is followed by multiple choice questions similar to those that appear on the APA® Exam.  108 pages. 1998.
“COPAS and the APA® Board of Examiners encourage APA® candidates to study all of the material in the reference outline. Study guides are designed to assist the candidate’s study for the APA® exam. The study guides are not replacements for the study materials. The study guides may not be inclusive of all material covered on the exams. For a complete list of study material, APA® candidates should refer to the reference outline for each module, contained in the COPAS APA® Accreditation Information handbook.”
