You should have a Bachelors Degree to sit for the CPA examination in California. If your Bachelors Degree is not in Business or Accounting related area than there is a requirement of 24 semester units of business-related subjects and 24 semester units in accounting subjects. Courses in excess of the required 24 semester units of accounting may be counted toward the business-related subjects unit requirement.
More or less, these Accounting courses shout be taken:
Financial Statement Analysis
External or Internal Reporting
The above mentioned courses are usually upper division, I don't know of any community college teaching Auditing.
Business related subjects would be:
Computer Science/Information Systems
Finance, for example, Financial Management
Business Related Law Courses
offered by an accredited law school
