In this episode you’ll hear an interview with Tori, a SuperfastCPA customer and now CPA, about how she used repetition and coverage as her main strategies in passing her CPA exams.

Like, that’s and I kind of realized like, well, I don’t think that was the best use of my time towards the end when it’s like you said, I think it’s just like the Refik coverage of everything was by far the most helpful.

All right, welcome to Episode 17 of the CPA exam experience from SuperfastCPA. I’m Nate, and in today’s interview, this will be audio only. So I guess the podcast only. You’ll hear me talk with Tori. She is a SuperfastCPA customer and now a CPA. So in this interview with Tori, I want you to listen for three things.

Again, like the other interviews, the whole interview is going to be valuable and it paints kind of the entire picture.

But three specific things to kind of listen for: She talks a lot about repetition and how that was the most helpful concept or practice for her spending a lot more time on repetition or coverage of all the topics. Whereas, you know, she had a few failed sections and she’ll talk about how one of the biggest mistakes she made in those failed sections was spending a lot of time on specific topics.

3 Things to Listen For

Whereas when she figured out or went on to pass those sections that she had failed previously, the change that she made was focusing all of her time on rereview of all the topics over and over and over. And that just made a big difference. So repetition. So the second thing would be her experience with the four different sections. And she had no problems with two of the sections. But then the other two sections just presented enough problems where she kind of had to reevaluate and change her study approach. And it’s not always just far and regs that are the hard ones. A lot of people, including a few of these actual interviews that we’ve done, a lot of people will pass far and REG and then really struggle with BEC and audit. And so it really just depends on your background, the classes that you had in college and a lot of other factors to where you just never know which section is going to kind of throw you for a loop and present the biggest challenge. So she talks about how she had to reevaluate and kind of change her study approach to get over those last two sections.

The third thing that I want you to listen for is she talks about how she actually did most of her main studying or her main study sessions at night, which if you’re a customer and you listen to our or you watch our Study Hacks videos, I say that you should really try to study in the mornings, if at all possible. However, if you truly operate best at night, if you’re kind of a night owl, then, you know, it does make sense to study when you personally work or operate the best. But the thing that I want you to listen for is she talks about how she had to have very firm boundaries with kind of her friends and family because the big problem was studying at night is it’s so easy for things to kind of pop up throughout the day and ruin your evening study session. So when you save that main study session for the evening, there are just so many things that can go wrong in the day or pop up and you need to deal with or you really want to hang out with friends or there’s a family birthday party.

There are just a million things that come up. And so for someone to successfully maintain those daily study sessions and make sure they happen, you basically have to cut everything else out for a few months. And so she talks about how she did that in this interview. And again, if you’ve listened to these interviews and you found them helpful, please take a second and leave a review on iTunes or on the Apple podcast app or wherever you listen to these podcasts. I just want to read a recent review. This is from N.W. Christenesn. So I just got my passing score for far last night. I’m here to pay tribute to Nate. All the other interviewers on this podcast. Thank you for sharing your experiences and tips. It’s more motivating than you’ll ever know. I’m also a SuperfastCPA customer, and Nate really does provide an excellent blueprint. So thank you for that review. If you’ve listened to these and you’ve found them helpful, please share them with someone that you know that’s working on their CPA exams as well. Just share the specific episode that you found the most helpful, because they will help other people that are working on their exams and help spread the word for the podcast. So all that being said, if this is the first thing that you have come across from superfast CPA, if this is the first episode you’ve listened to somehow. The best place to start with our strategies would be one of our free study trainings.

These are a one hour training where we will walk you through the perfect two hour study session. And our big claim with this is when you approach the study process just a little bit differently, using your current review materials doesn’t matter what review course you’re using. You can get more done in two hours than what you would normally get done in four to five hours studying the normal way. And so the idea is that if you’re working full time, which most people are, all you need to do is spend that two hours a day, ideally in the mornings with your main review course. So your main study session only needs to take two hours a day and then you do longer sessions on the weekend. But in this training, we walk through exactly what to do. When you sit down to study each day so that you are instantly being effective and efficient, you’re not wasting any time and you’re focusing on the most high leverage. Study strategies that give you the best results. So to sign up for one of those free trainings.

So with that, let’s get into this interview with Tori.

Interview with Tori

So starting from the beginning. What was your process or how did you get started with the CPA study process? Did you just kind of graduate school and then get a review course and just start studying? Or what was the beginning like for you?
Yeah, I knew much started raster side accepted a position with BKB then they had given me.
They provide us with the study course.
And so I started doing that not right away that summer after I graduated. But I started the course pretty soon after that classic when I started working and started and I started off taking off right away. This is one small one. And that was what I first started studying for.

And how did that go? I mean, did you just study and pass it or was it kind of a struggle in the beginning? Or what was your initial experience like studying?
Yeah, I actually I did fine in NBC in those two.
Pretty good. No problem. I struggled a little bit more with far, and REG, instead of dozens, actually end trying to take a couple of times. And that’s kind of where it took me a little bit to get used to. I had a kind of such a power. I was studying for those I realized. I mean, obviously audits a lot more just I mean, conceptual stuff is nice as much, you know, clients math and whatnot. And I mean, it’s just not that different figuring that out.
And I end up realizing more. So for me, what worked best was having to just, like, go through the multiple choice over and over and over.
Like I was always much more had read through everything and try to go through it once or twice in several ways, just like I think it’s just the more you have to do the application base with so much more important with these are what I was used to just from college even. And so I think once I found out that it was, you know, do the multiple choice over and over, that’s what really I think helped me the most.
Yeah. And where where in your timeline did you come across SuperfastCPA? Was it like in the middle or did you start with it from the beginning?
No, I actually was probably more towards the middle when I was struggling with those who say taken far, I think twice at that point. And I gotten like really close that this wasn’t quite over the passing mark. And I never and I think I just honestly, I think I just found it online at one point when I was just looking at different ideas of how to study for and why. And SuperfastCPA like, came up and that’s what I then looked into.

And so then I at that point had downloaded her, got the audio and yeah, the audio is what I found was super helpful for me just because I was studying while I was working. And so and I since I’m on the audit side, which I wrote a lot. So just like being able to like, put that on the way to work in the morning or like wherever we are traveling to that day or that we can just like having an extra time read. It’s like it’s like going for a run or something like that. I got sound that can be extremely helpful, just like constantly having that going over and over just from those. Yeah.

And did you go in and like, watch the Study Hacks videos? Is that how you kind of changed from what was to go into multiple choice first?

Yeah, I actually I watched that Study Hacks video and Spike was like a different approach in that going to hurt at this point in time. I was struggling with whatever I’m doing right now. So then I kind of set up and I would say I still watch lectures first just because for me, I just like having the background of ever. I was able to I mean, just having the actual, like, summarize materials that SuperfastCPA study tools provide, just like on top of that and then doing it also toits with it just seemed to really help put it over the top as far as having the extra boost of, like, the summary information beside it. Yeah.
And so what was your like what did a typical day of studying look like for you? Did you get up and study in the mornings or did you do after work and then whatever you did use, whether it was our stuff during your day from the app or just like an entire day of studying. What was that? What did that look like for you?

Studying in the Morning vs at Night

Yeah, since I was doing most of it while I was working, I usually I was I’m not much of a morning Study Hacks so much of like I mean, big McGroarty. My thing happened that night, but I usually like when I was getting ready in the morning for work, I usually would have the audio from SuperfastCPA going in the morning. And then I listened to that on my way to work.
And then during the day since I mean, you just kind of small bits of time. I mean, I would usually just I would take the summarize actually, like PDAF version and I would read through that during my breaks. So, I mean, I had to kind of defend myself to get off and, you know, looking at Facebook or whatever it was, it is using those like five to ten minutes. And I had a look at that stuff. So I found that helpful. And then usually during lunch, I tried to get in like a set of multiple choice at some point. And then, you know, the rest the day, I could say, can they even sometimes even listening to the audio during the day X? I mean, there are times like we weren’t working in groups. I could put it in the nearby or whatever, and I could listen to it a little bit. But then then you should listen to it on the way home.

And then I realized that I usually would study the three to four hours most nights once I got back, and that’s when I really kind of sat down. Did you know I actually went to the multiple choice and the simulations and really just like did all the practicing for. I guess if I I mean, that was like after I’d gotten through well, the lectures and stuff like that too. But usually my heavy, heavy setting was in the evening.
Gotcha. Nice. And so throughout your day with all the audio listening, like outside of your main review course, I mean it sounds like it was probably an extra hour, two hours a day. I’ll put together that you were using like the SuperfastCPA CPA stuff.
Yeah, yeah, sometime, yeah.

And then three or four hours, so that sets a decent amount of time studying. What were your Saturdays and Sundays like? Did you try to log both time wise? Like how much time did you try to study on those two days? And also did you actually how you actually study did you treat any differently or did you just. Was it the same as.
I would say on Saturdays and Sundays, I usually try to get in I six or seven hours both days, just like I’ve known since I was trying to cram a lot to get a couple of tests done.

How Long to Study on Weekends

Yeah, usually I try to get up a little bit. I mean, I try I usually get by like eight or so in those days and then really just try to crank. I go and drive it in the morning and I gave myself one more time the evening so that if I had a little more time, this can do my own thing and a little break for myself that way. So I tried to get in. I get four hours in the morning by noon, and then I usually take a break for like an hour, hour and a half around that one scientist kind of decompress a little bit. And then I get back on Sunday, another three or four hours, usually in the afternoon. And then most of that, I would say, was probably more just from like the actual study course material where I was just, again, going through multiple choice and the simulations over and over again. And I said to definitely some some weekends where I would try taking Oxy off even after I’d done that and get back on again later in the evening. That was more of a night out. So I decided that time a little bit more. But I would say I definitely try to do more in the morning right away. Since I’ve been used to waking up for work or whatever it was at that point anyway.
Yeah. And that just it does give you some time, like you said, at least those two days, to kind of do something else and refresh before the week starts, hopefully.

Yeah. And it’s like when you’re working doing it too and just having a little bit of time outside of all of that too. It just helps rejuvenate you a little bit.

Yeah. And what was your process of taking notes? I mean, did you make flashcards or did you take just kind of standard notes or did you do any of that?

General “Notes” vs Flashcards

Yeah. I’ve always been a big just general note taker.
I was never taken the note cards that I was using that had a notebook for each section I was taking. And I and I did find that I actually helped a lot, too. At first, it kind of makes it seem take so much more time to actually go through and write all of them out. But that’s always been for me. One of the better ways that I study is just spreading it out and taking that time to just say I think it slows you down, says skimming through stuff so fast.

And so I actually did take a lot of notes. And in the end, what I like looked at all my stuff. I mean, I felt I had to get a couple thousand notebooks worth of notes. So I did take.

Yeah, I mean, that’s something that doing these interviews, it’s it’s been interesting because the people that have figured this out, you know, and passed their exams, they’ve all kind of they’re kind of the big things that they all kind of say. They did the same way. And so everyone has had some form of of note taking. And I just think that’s really important. Like you said it, it’s a totally different thing to me, because if you’re gonna write down, write down either a flashcard or take notes, you basically have to kind of understand at first. So that process is forcing yourself to understand the topic to the point where you can write your own notes about it is just very different than, you know, just reading over something with your eyes and then moving on to something else that kind of makes it your own right. You kind of capture it in a way.

Right. And especially since everything was just so much I mean, because I have when I started taking Niek, then I, I have to switch over in between them when they started making me when they changed them a little bit. And so I’m making a little bit tougher than that point, too. And like when things came from more like application base and they kind of like the percentage of the problems vs. conceptual stuff on the two. So I think that was helpful. Yeah, especially just like getting a really good understanding for things that I could actually make the application a little bit quicker and easier throughout the rest of it. Yeah.

And then how did you treat like multiple choice questions is pretty self-explanatory. You kind of go through those. Read the responses. And then Sims are pretty different in there. You know, there there could be a hundred different ways of kind of breaking those apart and. Trying to learn how they work. So, like what? How did you approach studying for and preparing for the simulations?

Using MCQs to Prepare for the SIMs

Yeah, that’s most definitely. I like where I was little bit more, especially myself for REG. I think, as I said, what that’s the most. But I think for me, I would say I definitely went through. I feel like for me, since I knew that was how I saw a little bit, since it’s such a wide range of what could have been on the test. And this is so much in both of those books you have to go through. I really focused hard on like knowing like the multiple choice. I think if I can at least get a pretty high grade on that part of it, that gives me a little bit more room in the simulations to make some errors, if that’s the case. And so I hit the multiple choice, probably a lot higher than the same. But I did spend time, I mean, on each section, like I did go through every single simulation they had. And then I usually end up going through them two or three times, at least just because, like, I would go through them once when I would go through each section the first time.

And then once I was through the whole book and all the different sections, I would go back through and like my my process was just to highlight the grouping of Haramain. Like all the multiple choice, I would do like 30 more pro-choice than I would do a simulation, do 30 MultiChoice, you know, simulation, just like you have a random generator event.

And so I did it in like towards the end when I was studying, like, more comprehensive, just like a couple at the week before the exam and whatnot. I would say I went through the simulation again, like another two or three times just to. I mean, obviously the simulations were different on the exam. What not. But I mean, there were definitely some that were very similar to one that had studied. So I felt like as long as I had a general idea of, um, and I’ve gone through them a few times, I could probably get through it. Okay.

Yeah. So, I mean, I was going through quite a bit more, I mean at least like that when I finally did pass like once. That’s what I think changed. Mostly it went through those more than what I definitely had the first time.

Yeah. And that’s that is basically kind of what I tell people to is using the multiple choice is such an effective way at kind of learning the material, especially the version of the material that you’re actually going to see on the exam, because it’s questions and right.

By doing a lot of that, you kind of get how it works behind the scenes, so to speak. And so it’s easier to because The Sims are so dynamic and can appear completely different. On test day, knowing kind of the underlying concepts and how it really works is a lot more. Usable on test day. Van, just going through a million practice, sims just to go through practices. But like you said, at the same time, you do have to go through a decent amount. I mean, you do want to know how they work in the different formats.

They can show up in.
But, yeah, and I think that’s almost the bigger piece of it’s just even just like understand the format of what you’re going to see. So when you get in there, you look at it, you don’t panic. You see like, oh God, how am I getting I worked through this. I think just being able to see how it was set up originally was definitely helpful because I wouldn’t even say it was like when I was going to stands. I mean, I definitely like, look, I have and try to understanding it as you’re going to their own back.
I wouldn’t say I actually like really studied them as hard as I did the Multiple-choice just because I knew that spending a whole bunch of time and the exact things that they gave us. Wasn’t this they gonna be as helpful when I know that they’re going to be different questions and I get there anyway? So I felt like you’re saying there is like if you really understand it, you have to go through the multiple choice and you understand those concepts and the applications that you’re making there, then I think they because they’ll give me a good enough base to be able to work through the problems in the simulation area once I got there.

Yeah, that’s a good point. And so you kind of mentioned this, but what was your what was kind of your final review process or more specifically, like what did you do in the last two or three days before an exam?

Yeah. So usually the way I scheduled an hour, I had tried to read myself after getting through all the sections, I would try to be myself two weeks to do like a total comprehensive review and test to everything. So I usually did most. So I was able to do that for.

Tori’s Final Review Strategy

Then I would just say, I mean, depending on the test, I would set, you know, one chapter each day that would take the two weeks off, I’d say one chapter each day for that first week just to kind of review it all, go through my notes, go through the notes that like, stuck out on their review courses and whatnot, then try to do some more closely, like each day with those.
And then when I got to the final week before the exam. Same kind of thing that usually I would go through my notes like every night before I went to bed, even like I would again like throughout the week I was going for a ride or doing something else. So I kind of my brain off a little bit. I would still listen to the audio stuff just to have I kind of keep, you know, put into my brain a little bit. And then I would just sit and I honestly feel like the whole week I just looked at the random sets of like 30 multiple-choice them and the simulation 30 MultiChoice like this simulation.

So it just kind of a constant thing to say repetitive. But I feel like that was just so helpful in doing that. Then it’s like reading through all my notes and like the summary, the effort from SuperfastCPA like going through all of that, like at night before I went to bed. One last thing. And then I usually took the test. I was more of an afternoon person. Never go in and take the test. If I could have that morning to really just made me feel better to go to go through them like a couple things beforehand, then why not. It usually kind of how I ended up for that last week.

Yeah, no, I like that. And that’s, that’s such an effective format. Is this the set of 30 questions followed by like a little set of practices just because, again, that’s you know, that’s generally what the exam is. And also the last week or I mean, whatever it is, two weeks, whatever your review consists of, should just be getting repeat coverage instead of. I think a big mistake people make is spending those last two weeks or the last few days trying to kind of perfect maybe the four or five hard topics that they struggle with. Whereas, you know, two of those you might not even see a question on, you might see a question on two of those topics before you spend all your time becoming X, becoming an expert on like inventory evaluation. That’s not nearly as valuable as just spending that last week, getting as much repeat coverage as you can of just random, you know, everything because the exams cover like two hundred topics.

Yeah, I actually agree. I would say, like my first time around, I was struggling with those two a farm. Right. Particularly it was I, I would say I kind of fell into that at first. I was like these are like the hardest spots. And I’ve said what’s the most like go see these, you know, bunch at the end there. But in reality, when I got sick and like, I think I had gotten like one or two questions on those main big pieces that I was looking at.

So like that’s when I kind of realized, like, well, I don’t think that was like the best use of my time towards the end when that’s like you said, I think it’s just like the repeat coverage of everything was by far the most helpful.
Yeah, nice.

And like for me as well. I mean, I did the Bekker, if you question a lot of eyes, I mean, like it’s set up exactly like that course I’d say for the most part. And so just like see again, even just like the format of how the questions are asked. I think sometimes you can get in your head was like when you Rena’s question the goal of asking this or that. And I think it’s like the more you got there and see how they want you to answer it by doing those multiple choice over and over, it’s just a lot easier to go that much quicker through them when you’re actually like taking the test that day.

Yeah, so you had you passed the first two order NBC and then you kind of struggled with was it Star or did you did you kind of go back and forth between far and regs?

I kind of went back and forth because I had taken far and didn’t pass it by like seven points, I think. And then I, I think I retook that one pretty soon afterwards. And I like gotten a couple of points higher, but still obviously wasn’t there. And then at that point. But I think when I took that I had it was the beginning of the testing period.

So I didn’t find out about that until after I start setting Farag. And so then I found out hadn’t passed that one. But Sony to take this. Going through Wragg so took Wragg and then hadn’t passed that one now. And I was closer on but still didn’t pass that one. And so then asked that one. But again, I think that was another one. Towards the beginning of a test tape for that one as well. So like those, I kind of fought back and forth. So but having to say so, I wasn’t the most efficient as far as being the setting one and restudy it right away. So that part was going forward. But the other two are definitely ones I struggle a little bit more.
And then which like what was your third one that you passed then?

Did you go back to far, far, far?
And then did you get REG on the next attempt?
Yes, yes. So I think I kind of figured it out was far like what worked a little bit better as far as setting one. So then I was LTA is that when I jump back into REG, then that’s when I got that one.

Nice. And so, yeah, I mean, I’m guessing I know the answer based on what you said, but what was the big key change? What do you think was just the number one change you made when you kind of figured it out and then you were able to pass far and then pass, right?

Yeah, I’d say the biggest part was just the repetition. I mean, it wasn’t really. Because, like, for me, it was so important. Like, I know I was told by a lot of people, like, you know, I don’t think it’s necessary that you need to watch every single lecture they have up here and, like, read to the book and whatnot. And that’s fine. And I think for some people that did work. But for me, I like I just study better that way. I like being able to read through it and take the notes. And so, like, I still did that. And I think it definitely took me more time to do so. But I think that on top of just like the repetitive multiple choice and just the audio being able to listen to it all the time and just constantly, I mean, every hour of censor, it seems like I had some kind of ECPA material going on. I think that for the most, most help.

Yeah. And that’s that’s a huge thing. And that’s the part that I talk to talk to people about a lot. And it’s the point of having our products the way they are is like if you can keep this stuff on your brain, like every two hours about throughout the day, it’s dramatically different for your retention and understanding than just doing one big session once each day.

Yeah, I totally agree that that definitely a game changer. I mean, there are even pieces I feel like that, you know, you listen to and the idea that I really didn’t say that much or it’s like something, you know, it would come up at some point. And I thought I was like, I like I don’t know if I were necessarily even, like, looked at that as much. I hadn’t heard it on the audio or whatever it was like that way.

Just pieces like came from the different types of study you did throughout the day. I think that was helpful.
Yeah. And then basically kind of the last question, what was it like when you saw your fourth passing score?

I still remember that day. Yeah, it was good.

Yeah, I was at work that was actually last summer at work and I did and I was always wonder, I never went to work right away in the morning. I always wait until the afternoon after work. So it’s like I don’t want to be a depressing day. I didn’t.
That’s it. But I decided to look at work that afternoon in passing score and pretty excited. Just the biggest relief in the world. Yeah. It’s just like all the way. It’s it’s finally off your shoulders. Yeah.
Yeah. That’s funny how that is. Everyone has described it in that way, which that’s the thing. It’s every day where you don’t have for passing tests. It’s just it’s almost like feels like the same as the beginning. It’s just there’s no relief till you’re just completely done. Right.

Until you’re absolutely done. It’s like, you know, obviously you stress that whole time a little bit and it’s like the weights there. But I don’t think you really realize how much weight’s been on your shoulders. So you take that last one. Finally, it’s done.
Yeah. And it’s I mean, this only lasts for a few months, but once you get done, it’s almost like just having work each day is almost fun compared to. Right. Trying to study and go to work.

Right. Yeah. Yeah. Attitude towards it seems a little bit like this is all I have. Yeah.
For sure. Well yeah I think we covered a lot. Any other of your own tips or strategies you would give to anyone who’s currently studying anything we didn’t cover.

I would say one thing. I had tried to do more that I just wasn’t as good. I now know maybe if it’s because I, you know, with work and stuff, too bad they I mean, I was always more the night owl as far as studying. And I think that they say that, like, if you’re taking them right after like right out of college and you’re not taking that summer to take them or whatever it is, they say, don’t try to switch up your study habits a lot like what you normally have as far as like timing of when you would normally live, study and whatnot. And so, I mean, like I said, I was on a night out. That’s what worked for me.

But like, I had tried for a while there when I was working to get up early and do like a couple hours in the morning before work. So it’s like you have it, it’s dying. You don’t have to try to, like, talk yourself into it at night when you’re tired after working, you know how many hours you get that day.

So say it’s like people like need something to switch to that, too. It’s like, no, try doing a few hours, even if it’s just an hour in the morning and it’s one that I do at night after work if you are doing it while you’re working. Right. But then there’s those who aren’t doing in the time, do it that summer beforehand, like it is a lot to cram in at one summer. If you like graduate student summer, then start work in the fall. But like I would say, like if you had that opportunity, I definitely would definitely do it because it makes a big difference if you’re not going to do like you’re working.

Studying When You Work Best

Yeah, I think there’s a lot to be said about that. And it’s kind of your natural when you work and can focus the best. And I’m you know, I’m always telling people like, listen, if you have problems making it happen each day, the easy solution, well, it’s not easy. But to guarantee you get it done is switch to two hours in the morning. Just do two hours in the morning, then it’s in the books. It puts you on the right foot each day. You have a lot you don’t stress out about it as you go to work the whole day and dread it for after work. But there are people, you know, that, like you said, are like you did actually do work better at night. But the question there is, how did you prevent your study sessions from getting screwed up by friends or family by leaving it for the night? Did you just kind of cut people off for a few months or how did you manage that and make sure it happened each night?

Yeah, I would say at first it was a little tough just being like, no, I can’t really display myself to not go do something if I think I got to do this for an hour at everybody like that, our it makes it really easy to come back and be like, well, and I’m tired. I’m go to bed with that. Raissa I would say like a vote like the further I got into it after like the first two tests especially, I was like I say, most of my friends were Bryce. I was pretty like as far as like seeing them, I, I really just didn’t go out and do a whole lot of anything. Yeah. For that time period. It is like for me, since I’m on the audit side, like when we did travel quite a bit. And so I mean I definitely found myself having even just like in the evenings after work at like most the time we’d go and have dinner together someplace. I mean, most of the time I would say, can you drop me back off at the hotels? But I can get a few more hours and setting and like it definitely it really does kind of force like force you discipline for sure, because it’s obvious you really do. They go no, go do something else. It’s for a little bit then you may have a hard time getting back into it. I mean, I definitely it was just easier almost to cut everything out than just being like, oh, I’ll do this here and there right in the week. Is it just focus on this and get it done?
Yeah. No, I mean, that’s again, that’s, you know, just what I tell people. It’s basically the cost of actually doing this. You know, it’s it’s a lot easier to just put everything on pause for. Few months and just get them past than it is to just drag it out over like a year or more.

Right. Yeah. And I mean, I can tell you that because, like mine, definitely closer to, like, the year mark in that census, because I was I mean, just figuring out studying, too. But I’m just saying that just as well. And I mean, I definitely would have loved it. Have been a little bit shorter. But yes, I mean, I think it’s like the discipline is key there. I mean, I think even with the morning stuff. Right. I found is like, yeah, it was really hard to get up in the morning, but the week that I was able to do that, like, it was like, OK, you get up at 5:00 in the morning, whatever it was. Take a shower. It’s going to wake you up. And it’s like I feel like, you know, kind of doing something for the world the way can anyone can bother you anyway. So is it easier to get, like, you know, the time when I actually did get up, it was like you really got the good steady hours. And I think at that point by doing it in the morning.
Yeah, definitely. All right. Cool. Well, yeah, I think that was really helpful. And you covered a lot of good tips that other people will hear and be able to use. So I appreciate you being on here and I’m glad you found our stuff and used them somewhat and that it helped a little bit.

Yeah. Yeah, definitely. For sure.

So that was the interview with Tori. So like the other interviews, I think you probably found that pretty helpful, especially if you are currently in the study process. And if you’re about to start the study process, you still probably got a few ideas that you’ll be able to kind of apply or some kind of big picture ideas to help you narrow down how you will study and kind of approach the study process. There’s a lot to learn from all of these interviews that we’ve done. So, again, if you found this helpful, please take a second leave review on the podcast app that you’re using. And if you want to watch one of those free one hour trainings where we walk you through the study process from start to finish, you will find that incredibly helpful.
