Explanation: Busy accounting professionals are accustomed to performing several activities simultaneously. This juggling act may prove effective when there are many daily tasks that need to be done in a short amount of time. When studying, however, candidates retain more material when they focus all of their attention on a single task.
Fix: Set aside your non-essential activities for at least two weeks prior to the exam and focus purely on your studies. For example, have someone else cook dinner or take care of the lawn. You can return to your multi-tasking ways once you’ve passed each EA exam part.
