Study Tips for the US CPA:

CPA Exam So Difficult? – It’s just a myth.

Here are the US CPA exam study tips.
  1. Go through the textbook fully, read and make your own notes. While making your notes don’t get carried away. Make crisp summaries which you can go through, and that makes you remember the topics better.
  2. Always try to note down the new points that you come across when solving Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) and Task-Based Simulations (TBS). This nitty-gritty may, at times, help you more than the text in the chapter. Skill master videos help you to learn the topic in a precise manner.
  3. Even if you have done practicing MCQs, revise unlimited practice tests. It is because they give you the test feeling, and it will help you sit through a four-hour exam as you are unable to check your answers immediately.
  4. Before going to sleep in the night, try flipping through every page you read that day and make sure to remember the points you studied. Use “flashcards” for quick revision.
  5. After revision, take the mock tests and review the areas that you are weak. It helps you to focus during the time as our study timings may vary.
  6. Have a credible partner to help you look at your study progress.
  7. Never leave any part of the syllabus. Be familiar with the terminology.
  8. Keep looking at the questions and discuss with your friends. That is very helpful for you to remember things well.

It’s a lot of frustrations, emotions, ups and downs, but your practice matters more.
