Your Study Profile Is: The Worker

You've always put in the time and effort to excel in school and you take every assignment and exam seriously. In fact, you take a lot of pride in doing better on exams than "naturals" whom everything seems to come easy to.


As a worker, you've always put a ton of time and effort into doing well on every assignment and exam through school... almost to a fault.

This might sound counter-intuitive, but one of your biggest challenges with the CPA exams will be trying to learn that you don't need to absolutely know everything about every single topic.

Some of the best students I know that then struggled the most with the CPA exams were "worker" types, because they would drive themselves crazy trying to master every single topic.

  • Your Biggest Strengths

    You already have the ability to study hard and work hard… that’s the key to the CPA exams.

  • Your Weaknesses

    Trying to master every topic. There’s diminishing returns on trying to master the hardest topics on the CPA exams: you have time constraints and the exams have to be finished in a short enough amount of time that you’re able to recall what you’ve studied from every topic.

    This can also present issues if you give yourself 3-4 months per section because you plan to learn it all. When you’re spending months per section, failing one exam can create big issues with the 18 month timeline.

    Another challenge some worker-types have is not scheduling an exam until they feel “completely ready”. Which in some cases is a form of procrastination.

  • Study Methods to Focus On

    As a worker, your first instinct is to watch every video lecture, read every chapter, and meticulously work through every practice question.

    With over 200 topics on FAR alone, this will take an extraordinarily long time. And again, if you work full-time this is where people become extremely overwhelmed with the study process, because “learning it all” in just a few hours a day isn’t feasible.

    You need to learn to sift through the information and identify the most relevant parts of each topic.

    The easiest way to do this is by going through the practice questions first. For any given topic, there is a lot of text in the chapter. But if you go to the practice questions for that topic, you’ll find that you really only see questions on the same 2-3 concepts.

    Practice questions are the best guide to figuring out what you’ll really see on the exams.

    This ‘question-first approach’ is the basis of the study methods I used to pass all 4 sections in 3 months. We have a free training that walks you through this approach from start to finish here…

  • How to Structure Your Study Routine

    Having a daily study routine that you stick to 100% will be crucial to your success. As a worker, you’ve very used to this so the routine aspect won’t be an issue.

    What you need to focus on is making sure your study approach is helping you move through the material as effectively and efficiently as possible, and that you’re not getting bogged down with every tiny detail.

    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"

Christine Christine

"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..."

How I passed all 4 sections in 3 months, step-by-step...

I know that sounds too good to be true. I'm not saying everyone will get those same results.

Here's what happened:

  1. I spend 3 months studying the "normal way" for FAR, and go in and fail it.
  2. At this point, I'm now working full-time and have very little time to study, so I use some of my own ideas for studying... "study hacks" if you will
  3. Miraculously, this new approach works... in less study time each day, and I end up passing all 4 sections all within 3 months

We've taken what I did and streamlined it into a repeatable process, and we walk you through it for free on this training...

What I can tell you is that you can take these same strategies - no matter what review course you're using - and start getting better results, in less time each day.

If you have all 4 sections left this one hour can literally save you months of time and frustration from trying to figure things out on your own.

(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)
