Talking to Others

This CPA Prep Tip concerns talking to others.

We recommend that you do not get involved in discussions with other CPA candidates about the exam or subject matter until after you have completed the exam. Talking to other CPA candidates before the exam will be distracting and may create anxiety about your knowledge or performance. After each exam section is over, you must put it behind you and concentrate on the next section. Nothing can be done once you have finished a section. Talking about it will not accomplish anything positive and certainly will not change your answers. Remember that you did your best and that nobody can ask for more.
