If you are talking about the exam in June 2014 for Algebra 1 and Geometry - the exam is being built by SED the same basic way as the past exams - just following the CCLS. PARCC exams will not exist by then. What will happen after June 2014 is up for a decision.
I can also suggest that you study the PARCC framework (which is no longer a "draft") more closely than Appendix A. While nothing has been decided officially - SED will most likely pick something more closely aligned to this than the original Appendix A.

Maybe I am missing something, but has it been confirmed that parcc will definitely replace the regents in 2014 From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of C Lorandini Sent: Friday, November 16, 2012 2:26 PM To: email@example.com Subject: Re: Non-Right Triangle Trig in NY CCSS Geometry It will be on memberclicks for all members to see

It is specifically mentioned in Appendix A, and we have been told that the (+) topics were "in", but the PARCC Frameworks document that is the new thing doesn't mention them. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
