Happy to share that I, Namrata Jain cleared REG with 83. I just wanted to share a few points on how I prepared for the exam and successfully cleared it. Basically, I had no strategy for studies, but I made sure that I’ll schedule exams only when I feel I’m prepared for exams. Before starting my preparation, I noted suggestions that were shared by our Alumni. At first, I focused more on getting total concept…

I took about two months of study time to complete my Initial study and revision of the REG section Strategy My target was to complete each section within 5 or 6 days so that I can have a revision period of almost 10 days.I strictly followed this sequence of learning: – Video Lectures — Skill Practice — MCQ’s— & Simulations. When I couldn’t understand any of the MCQ’s or SIMS, I continued to study the…

The strategy that I followed with my BEC paper is that I always used to go through Becker lectures first, and then I speed read the Becker notes and underlined everything that I felt was important. ∙ Then I did my skills practice after which I did the MCQ’s and then finally did the Sims. ∙ I followed this until I completed all the modules. ∙ During this process, the most important thing is that…

AUD AUD is a theoretical subject. So, reading the modules or watching lectures is extremely important. I was more comfortable watching lectures, so I watched all the lectures twice during my studies. I watched lectures for topics like Sampling, Fraud, Audit Risk, SSAE, & SSARS engagements more than twice. SSAE, SSARS, and CPA Independence rules- You need to read these chapters and understand the concepts thoroughly. These parts are completely different from what you study…

STEP 1: TIME LIMIT (MAXIMUM 20 DAYS) Listen to Becker’s lectures and whenever you feel like you didn’t understand some concept you can always refer to Simandhar’s classes for conceptual clarity. Simultaneously, write down notes for each module and make sure you leave two pages blank after each module (useful at Step 2 and 3), this takes time but is extremely useful for revision. Also make sure you do skills practice videos, MCQs, and SIMs…

Before starting with my strategy, I would like to emphasize on the fact that I completed my MBA back in 2012 and after which I never appeared for the exams. So, when I first thought of starting CPA, it was tough for me to digest the idea of studying and appearing for exams while working full time. I made a goal of completing Regulation first as I had experience with US taxation. After clearing the…

  Regulation is not an easy section for Indian students, as every concept is completely new and takes time to understand.   Keeping that in mind, one should not panic if they are taking some time to understand the concept and complete a module.   The revision should be twice atleast, and making notes of Important topics is highly suggested from my side.   Complete one Module at a time. Don’t even go to next module if you…

I want to share some strategies that I have followed in the subjects I have passed COMMON POINTS In BEC, there are six chapters. Most of the MCQ come from the first and last chapter. But, simulations come from B2, B3, B4 and B5. Revisions are the only possible way to pass this subject. First, watch all Simandhar and Becker lectures, then do skill masters video, followed by MCQ and simulations. Do follow this pattern…

The first thing I would like to suggest is to develop an interest in the course, have a consistent study schedule, and follow it without fail. Then anyone can complete this course irrespective of your earlier qualifications or past work experience provided they are determined and extremely focused. Coming to the study schedule, I always used to complete the Becker Lectures, Skills Practice, MCQs followed by Simulations, but two things helped me the most. The…

The first and foremost key to cracking this exam is committing to it seriously. Make a schedule that can be followed every day. Daily studying helps maintain a flow of efficiency. Make yourself accountable to someone you fear and wouldn’t lie to about your progress. This exam demands your time—seriousness, dedication and patience. REG I started my preparation in the same sequence as the Becker product. I did the skills practice, MCQs and Simulations for…
