[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left”]As a Natural, things have always come easy to you. That’s not to say you don’t put in effort, but you’ve usually been able to be above average with less effort than others.
This is also one of the biggest risks when it comes to studying for the CPA exams: you might not need to study 6 hours a day to pass like some candidates, but no one simply “coasts” to 4 passing scores.
Passing the CPA exams will take much more time and effort than any academic endeavor you’ve experienced up to this point.[/text_block]
You’re a fast learner, and a great test-taker. You will be able to move through the study material faster than some candidates, but that doesn’t mean you won’t need to put in the work.
Overconfidence or underestimating the difficulty of the exams, especially FAR and REG. Also, relying on the methods that allowed you to cruise through exams in high school and college probably won’t work for the CPA exams.
Study Methods to Focus On
As a natural, you’ll get the most bang for your buck in the shortest amount of time by jumping straight into practice questions.
You have the ability to read between the lines and are a great critical thinker, so you’ll be able to learn what you need to from most lessons just by going through practice questions.
Take concepts that you struggle with and create your own flashcards that you can use to review later.
Having a daily study routine that you stick to 100% will be crucial to your success. Even though you’re a natural, it’s better to be safe than sorry on exam day so make sure you nail every single day of studying.
Again, the training mentioned above walks through how to do your main study session in just 2 hours a day… but it’s crucial you follow the routine day in and day out.
“My name is Jared, and I’m a CPA. I pretty much have every bit of that thanks to SuperfastCPA. I highly recommend SuperfastCPA. I purchased the study materials and it was absolutely worth every penny”
“I got the review notes & audio notes. I was skeptical at first, I didn’t think you could get the information you needed in that short of time… but I was pleasantly surprised… and hey, I passed. I can say this… it is the best purchase I have made for my CPA study dollar I have made…“
(another note: this doesn’t mean you can be lazy. As you’ll see on the training, one of the main tenants of this approach is an all-consuming focus and dedication to the study process, even though it takes less time each day)[/text_block]
