Roger CPA Reviews guest blogger, Steven P., describes how studying for the CPA Exam is similar to training for a marathon.
Studying for the CPA Exam is really like training for a marathon or a long distance run. On some days you do sprints to work on your speed and time and on other days you run long distances to work on your endurance and form.
When you start to tackle the CPA Exam review, dont be dismayed if you cant do 100 questions every day. Sometimes, you might only do 5 or 10 questions and spend the rest of the day reading or watching videos. On other days you might breeze through large amounts of material with no problems. Every day will be different and with new challenges.
John Hanc, a marathon journalist, sums it up best with his quote, I've learned that finishing a marathon isn't just an athletic achievement. It's a state of mind; a state of mind that says anything is possible." The most important things to remember when studying for the CPA Exam are to find what study style works for you, to always keep a positive state of mind and to pace yourself.
