Taking the CPA exam internationally

Hey all,

I am currently a U.S citizen and resident and wish to be abroad for the next 18 months for personal reasons.  During this time I'd like to study full-time for the exam, but the FAQ page on the NASBA site is wicked confusing (https://www.aicpa.org/BecomeACPA/CPAExam/ForCandidates/DownloadableDocuments/InternationalExamFAQ.pdf).  One paragraph talks about how you won't be accepted to sit for the exam internationally if you have a short-term transit or tourist visa.  Has anybody had any experience with this before?
