Manage Your Studies

Start with a plan! Your course comes with Study Planners that can help.

  1. In your student account, choose between a 3, 6, 9 and 12 month study plan.
  2. Select the customizable planner to help build your own plan that you can stick to. All are based on the recommendation to study for a part of the exam, and then take that part before moving onto the next.

 

Start Studying with the Roger Method 

  1. Watch one lecture at a time and in full. We do not recommend starting and stopping the lectures frequently make sure you have a fair amount of time before you commit yourself to studying.
  2. Follow along with the lectures in your Course Textbook before simply reading the book. Every course includes both online and physical textbooks so you can choose which works best for you. 
  3. Our system includes Note taking and Video Bookmark functions right in your course so that you can revisit difficult topics, and keep diligent notes saved within your course. If you prefer to follow along in the physical textbooks, simply highlight and take notes right in the books. 
  4. After you have watched the lecture, now fully read the corresponding pages in your course textbook, and review your notes. Highlight and add notes where applicable.
  5. Once you've completed a topic, gauge your confidence level regarding your understanding of that topic. This will help you focus your studies during your final review of the material.

 

Test Your Knowledge 

  1. You should complete corresponding homework on a topic before moving on to the next.
  2. Begin with the CPA review questions at the back of each section of the Course Textbook.   
  3. Begin with Multiple Choice questions. Take your time, and only do one question at a time. Check your answer and read the description as to why it was right or wrong.
  4. Circle and mark questions you miss or have difficulty with. You should review these prior to the exam.
  5. Continue with practice on Task-Based Simulations.

 

Final Review 

  1. Review any lectures that you marked as difficult, bookmarked a portion of, or rated at a lower confidence level.
  2. Use your Interactive Practice Questions & CPA Exam Simulator software for extra practice. It also allows you to track your progress and take practice exams to work on your time management skills.
  3. Continue with as many multiple choice questions and simulations as time allows, especially in the topics you find the most difficult. 

 

Remember--you've got this! The CPA Exam is a marathon, not a sprint. So stick to your study plan, put in the time, and you're well on your way to becoming a CPA!
