Question: Your system recommends that I schedule each section one at a time, but wouldn’t I finish faster if I reviewed for all sections at the same time and scheduled them all in the same exam window? Please advise.

Answer: You will not necessarily finish the exam faster by scheduling the four sections together in one exam window. In fact, you will likely spend more total time reviewing because you will have to go back and review the topics again you covered at the beginning.

Both Gleim and the AICPA recommend that candidates study for this exam one section at a time. That is, concentrate on just one section (AUD, for example), learn it, take the exam, and pass. Then move on to the next section, and do the same. Do not wait on your score to begin studying for the next section. By focusing on one section at a time, you greatly increase your chances of passing the first time.
