REG Video #1-In the Video below, Darius narrates and explains the answers to the AICPA Release Ethics Questions. These multiple choice REG questions were released by the AICPA in October of 2019. The REG candidate can usually prepare for a question on who can sue a CPA. The questions in this first REG video relate to ethics and accountants’ legal and professional responsibilities to clients. The REG exam will test your knowledge and education regarding the difference between breach of contract, ordinary negligence, gross negligence/constructive fraud, and common law fraud. In order to be successful in the Regulation exam in the area of ethics, you must know who can sue a CPA for breach of contract, the additional parties that can sue a CPA for ordinary negligence and the additional parties who can sue a CPA for gross negligence/constructive fraud, and common law fraud. If you want to pass the CPA REG exam, make sure to take notes as you watch this video and see not only what the AICPA has been asking lately in the area of ethics but also how to approach the next multiple choice question or simulation on ethics. You will need to be familiar with terms such as “reckless”, “scienter” and “‘reasonable care”. Here is a link to all the AICPA Release Questions
