The CPA Exam is known as one of the hardest professional licensing exams period. It is also one of the biggest steps you can take to boost your career and be recognized in the community. The one thing every CPA remembers well is the moment they got their passing grades for the CPA Exam.
What can you do to guarantee your success on the exam?
I loved the advice from a young CPA in his post on Ledgerlink titled, Six Attributes That Will Guarantee Success on the CPA Examfrom CPA blogger Lie Dharma Putra:
- Knowledge of the material
- Commitment to the exam preparation
- Take a solutions approach
- Grading insights - maximize each question's potential score
- Develop an examination strategy
- Examination confidence
Think about it like you are training for a major athletic event, a marathon is a great metaphor. Knowledge of the content is just one piece. Mental and physical preparation are almost as important as the knowledge of the core material.
