As a student, working professional, parent, or all of the above, we know that it’s important for you to find time to study for the CPA Exam whenever you can, wherever you can. After all, the key to passing isn’t how you juggle your busy lifestyle; but how you make studying a priority within it.
Here are our top 5 tips on how to squeeze more study time into your daily routine.
1. Make sure your course is fully mobile
Today’s CPA candidates are always on-the-go, so ensuring you have access to your course via multiple devices is key. It’s for this reason that our entire CPA Exam review program is completely mobile through our fully-featured mobile app. So whether you’re in line for your morning espresso, out walking your dog, or want to study during your lunch break, you can make the most out of your time and be one step closer to reaching your goals.
2. Take Practice Tests On-the-Go
One of the key elements to ensuring you’re understanding concepts and topics is applying what you’ve learned by practicing Multiple-Choice Questions (MCQs) and Task-Based Simulations (TBSs). Which is why the app allows you to take a quick practice test whenever you want to review old concepts or test your knowledge on new ones. This helps keep your brain actively learning throughout the day to achieve maximum retention and productivity.
3. Study Smarter, Not Harder
With mobile access to your performance data, including our signature SmartPath Predictive Technology™, you can see exactly how you’re measuring up for each section of the CPA Exam anytime. This makes studying way more efficient because you’ll focus less on the stuff you already know, and more on the stuff you don’t.
Use this information as a guide to figure out which lectures you should revisit on your next break, or to formulate a plan of attack for your next study session.
4. Use Flash Cards
Flash cards are another great way to test yourself on top CPA Exam topics and keep the memory juices flowing. You can go the old school route and create your own on index cards, or you could use the digital flash card feature in your course.
Create your own customized flash cards to review topics, terms, or formulas you may be struggling with or simply want to test your understanding on. This will help you drill concepts quickly and efficiently to help solidify foundational CPA Exam material no matter where you are.
5. Listen to Your Lectures
You can definitely watch your lectures and skim through eTextbooks while on-the-go, but have you considered listening to your lectures as an audio guide rather than for just pure visual reference? Maybe you have a long commute or are headed to the gym. Instead of listening to talk radio or watching tv on your elliptical, why not re-listen to a topic you are struggling with or get started on a new one?
And if you’re going to be in an area with unreliable reception, make sure to download the lectures you’d like to listen to or view ahead of time so you have access to them even without reception or internet.
