There are a few reasons why the SFCPA products and strategies work so well at helping candidates pass and improve their scores. Let’s start with the basics: The formula for success on the CPA exams is that you need enough quality study time to learn the material well enough to get a passing score.
It’s not just a function of study time. There are a lot of people who have put a year of more into these exams without passing a section, let alone all 4. Not all study methods are equally effective, and most candidates spend 80%of their study time in the least-effective forms of study. On the other hand, most people would get completely different results simply by spending 80% of their study time on the most effective forms of studying, and that is exactly what you’ll learn in the Study Hacks videos. The time you do spend studying needs to be effective, and that’s exactly what the Study Hacks videos will teach you.
Then there’s the “time” factor. Most people figure out pretty quickly that it’s almost impossible to fit in quality study time each day, especially if you’re working full-time. The SFCPA study tools make it very easy and effective to add in a lot of extra study time, just by going through your normal day.
(this is assuming you still do a main study session each day, which ideally you’d do in the morning before work that lasts 90-120 minutes)
For example, listen to the audio notes on your drive to work, whenever you’re preparing meals, getting ready for the day, etc. That’s 1-2 hours already. Then, whenever you’d normally pull out your phone and look at social media or other time wasters, just read the review notes or take a few quizzes. If you do that consistently that’s another 1-2 hours of study time, and it’s very high impact study time as well. Then on your way home from work, listen to the audios some more… you can see this adds 3,4, or 5+ extra hours each day before you even get home from work. Over the course of an 6-8 week study plan, that’s 100+ hours of extra study time, and that kind of exposure obviously leads to increased understanding & retention, and increased test scores.
