LFCPA Practice Tests and Detailed Solutions
LFCPA stands for LaVerne Funderburk, CPA and is meant to distinguish these practice tests from the actual UIL Accounting contest materials.
You may use the tests for classroom practice or for an invitational meet your school is hosting. The Detailed Solutions booklets are sold separately and do NOT include the respective test.
Please order in ample time as all materials are shipped by regular postal service. If expedited shipping is necessary, please e-mail me to make arrangements.
As explained in other articles on this website, the FRAMEWORK of the UIL Accounting Concept List 2023-24 remains the same as last year. The importance of this statement is that prior year study materials written by LaVerne Funderburk continue to be useful for contest preparation for 2023-24 and beyond.
Detailed Solutions for Prior Year District Competition Tests
There are now "Detailed Solutions" written for TEN prior year district tests that were used in competition. The "Detailed Solutions" show how to solve the test questions. These booklets may even be used by students for study on their own. The booklets will include solving strategies, warnings for common pitfalls, and detailed explanations using charts and T-accounts. They each are designed to be helpful educational tools and so much more than simply a column of numbers explaining how to arrive at the answer in the key. You will need to have your own copy of the actual test because the test questions are not repeated in the Detailed Solutions.
Actual tests used in competition for years 2022 and earlier are available free on the UIL Accounting website in "Archived Exams." Because of the Covid pandemic, only Invitational 2020-A, Invitational 2020-B, and the District 2020-D were written. The District 2020-D test was used in the "UIL At Home Experience." The 2023 tests used in competition are available in the UIL Fall Study Packet on the UIL Academics website.
