It takes more than just studying to pass the CPA Exam. Our secret ingredient? Come closer, and listen up:
Here's What You Should Be Thinking About:
When you walk into the exam and get settled in, youll have 10 minutes to read three screens and accept the rules/policies. To help you keep track of the 10 minutes, you'll get a neat little timer on the introductory screen of the exam. This way, you don't use up too much time reading all that material (exam policies, copyright, section introductions). Within these ten minutes, we recommend writing down your benchmarks for the exam youre about to take. According to our recommended benchmarks, you have 45 minutes for each of the three testlets on FAR AUD, BEC, while for REG you have 35 minutes. On the TBS, you have about 15 minutes per simulation for FAR, AUD, and BEC, and for REG you have about 13 minutes. With all this talk about how many minutes per section, were not saying watch the clock every minute and definitely do not panic or become discouraged. Use the timing strategy as something to help pace yourself, not something that makes you wish you had done something else with your life!
