Additional Requirements for Honors Credit: Because the J.M. Tull School of Accounting devotes only one three-hour course to management accounting, it is not possible to cover in our regular class all of the management accounting topics that may appear on the CPA exam.

Additional topics tested on exam I are economic order quantity, joint products, and spoilage. An additional topic tested on exam II is overhead variances.
