In this episode we’ll discuss how to study for two CPA exams at once, which I have some experience in as I took AUD and FAR 4 days apart and passed both. See the full post here: https://www.superfastcpa.com/podcast6/ Learn the "perfect" 2-hour study session here: www.superfastcpa.com/training I recommend CPA Excel: www.superfastcpa.com/cpaexcel #cpaexam #cpareview #passthecpaexams So when to not study for two exams at once? The first most obvious reason is if you don’t have an actual reason to. And I do get asked this. I get emails about this someone. And usually what it is is they’ll they will say, I’m not working right now. So I have all day, every day to study. I’m thinking about studying for FAR and REG at the same time and just dividing my day in half. No, don’t do that. That makes absolutely no sense. And you’ll probably fail both. But you don’t want to be going through like the the actual learning process. You don’t want to be going through a section for the first time. You don’t want to be doing that twice at once. That’s very hard. And as we’ll get into typically how this should work is you will have one section that is new that you’re going through for the first time where you’re studying under the typical format. Just going lesson by lesson. And then you have another section where you’re doing a restudy, you know, if you failed it or you’re just trying to maintain and we’ll get to that, but never do it for no reason just to study two at once. That doesn’t make any sense. If you want if you have like a three month window from when you finished your masters until you start your full time job, if that’s what it is, you’d be much better off to set the two six weeks apart. And so it’s just all day, every day as (whoops), all day, every day is one section. And then you you take that section, then you do the next one. Now, here’s the score thing. If you failed with less than a 60, I would recommend if you can make it work. You know, don’t schedule a new one yet. I would just go back to that section and approach the restudy as if you’re just starting over. So that’s my advice on that. Now, everything else we’re going to talk about as if you scored like a 61 or above between a 61 and 74, of course. If you’re new to SuperfastCPA and you just happened upon this video and you don’t know about our study approach that we teach our clients and customers, then watch one of our study trainings. And you can do that by texting PASSNOW to 44222 and you’ll be sent a link. You can watch a free study training. All right, now when to study for two exams at once. When you think you might have failed a section, and you want to maintain your knowledge of that section. I will give you an easy way to do that. That’s one situation. The other time is when you you’ve gotten your score back and, you know, you failed the section, but you don’t want to move your next exam date or you want to retake it as soon as possible. Which again, if you scored 60 or above, that is what I recommend. You want to get back in the testing center basically as fast as possible, like I’m talking like three to four weeks because doing what I will tell you in the strategy part of this episode. If you scored above a 60, you can easily make up that 10 to 15 points over several weeks. Then the other situation is this current situation. During this whole exam date testing center, uncertainty due to the Coronavirus. And then there’s probably other circumstances I haven’t explicitly mentioned. But, you know, when when you have a legitimate reason to try and maintain your knowledge of the previous section you’ve already studied, and then you’re moving on to learning or going through a new section for the first time. So how to study for two exams at once again, this relies on you knowing the SuperfastCPA approach to studying and the two hour main session that we teach our, our customers. So if you are a customer and that’s not crystal clear, then go into your account and rewatch the Study Hacks videos. If not, attend one of our free trainings again, I mentioned this for an overview of how your main study session should be done.

How to Study for Two CPA Exams at Once So how to study for two exams at once? Here’s how it should work. You shouldn’t ever be in a situation where you’re learning new material for two sections at once. I already mentioned that. It should be where one section is new. And then one is a restudy or maintenance. Now for the new section, you simply follow the SuperfastCPA approach with your review course, doing that two hour session ideally in the morning. OK, so that’s that’s how you do that. That’s simple. The same as it always would be.
