July 20, 2017

CPA Study Plan

Candidate Spotlight: Ebvomien Osaigbovo

If you take the CPA Exam directly after graduating from college, the student mindset may enable you to establish good study habits and achieve successful studying early on in the process of passing the exam. However, if life prevents you from getting to the exam until later on in your career, you may find super productive study sessions more difficult to achieve. Discovering your best study strategy may take time, and that time may include a failed section of the CPA Exam. What you need to start studying effectively as soon as possible in your CPA Exam journey, particularly if you have failed a section, is a realistic study plan and a commitment to following it.
