Video – CPA Exam Cram Strategy

cpa review cram course

Logan writes in from the Dojo, “I am taking FAR in one week. I'm currently trending in the high fifties and low sixties on my CPA Exam Scores. I've already copied the NINJA Notes down and am reading them at least once a day. What's your best strategies for cramming in the last week? Would you recommend studying with the NINJA Notes or focusing on MCQ or the Blitz videos? I am able to study for around eight hours every day between now and exam day.”

Your final week you should be hitting the MCQ really hard and start with your weakest area first. So you're taking FAR, let's say your weakest area is bonds. And your second-weakest is not-for-profit accounting. And if you don't know what your weakest areas are, if they all feel weak, just think, “When I'm dreaming at night, which one am I dreaming about that's giving me nightmares?” And if it's bonds, okay, start with bonds. And so that's your weakest area.

Work twenty question mini-testlets until you're scoring in the seventies. It's an arbitrary number. Until you are scoring in the seventies and then move on to your next weakest. Not-for-profit accounting, as an example. Then score in the seventies on that and move on.

So do twenty question mini-testlets. So I would do that with the MCQ and then I would hit the Notes hard. I would keep reading those and the Blitz Videos. The Blitz Videos are a combination of the NINJA Notes and the Audio, and you can watch those if you want to.

If I was pressed for time, I would read the NINJA Notes and I would hit the MCQ. And then obviously, even when you're driving to your exam you are listening to the NINJA Audio over your nightmare topic. So bonds, as you're driving to Prometric, you're listening to the NINJA Audio over bonds. Just get that stuff in your brain.
