The 2011 NASBA Candidate Performance Book Is Out; What Do You Want Us To Cover?

I procrastinated on having the fine folks who own this website buy me a copy of the 2010 candidate performance book but even if I hadn't, it usually comes out much later in the year. NASBA's quick work this year is your benefit as the latest edition is on its way to me, meaning weeks more of CPA exam data for you guys to hold over each other's heads (yay!).

So, what do you want to see? Last time we covered California, Illinois, New York, Florida, Texas, Maryland, MassachusettsMichigan, we reordered the U.S. News Accounting rankings by CPA exam schools, covered who did best overall, and looked at one dumpy former school on my home turf. Oh, right. And there was this guy. Obviously we'll hit the top 5 CPA exam states in the country (starting, again, with California), possibly attack the Big 10 schools in order of CPA exam performance, tackle who did best out of all and possibly who did worst. What else? Rank by most popular Real Housewives series? Blue states v. red states?

Since this latest edition covers the 2011 exam and most of us are aware that 2011 was not a good year for CPA exam candidate performance, generally speaking, we'll be doing some comparing between 2010 and 2011 as well.

It's up to you guys so if there's something you want to see, speak now or forever STFU.
