Preparation method:

While preparing for the CPA exam, the approach itself reflects on your accounting education. Suppose, if you are good at reading you can read textbooks and practice online. If you learn well from a teacher, go with video lectures.

Put in the study time:

You have 18 months to pass all the sections of the CPA exam, but sometimes you don’t meet the target probably in the area of accounting. One thing must be noted that you don’t have to memorize the things, but learn the material.

Practice well:

In the preparation of the CPA exam, it’s hard to cram the subject in just one or two days. So, you have to go through the material many times and have to practice each section thoroughly.

Simulate the exam:

One must have to practice using computerized tests for the simulation questions and multiple-choice questions. It’s because, on the day of the exam, every question looks familiar, which leads to confusion. The familiarity level is almost 30 percent. So, it’s better to have a wealth of case-based simulations.
