Let experience be your guide

Look to your personal experience when determining which test section to take first. For example, your financial accounting classes should give you a foundation for the FAR section of the exam — one of the toughest! Consider studying for the FAR first. And if you have the time, look into taking a course in Corporate Tax to help you with book-to-tax conversions.

Create an effective study guide

You do not need hours upon hours to get study time in. Try fitting in “micro-sessions” throughout your day in 5-15 minute MCQ or video sessions. Use Surgent’s audio courses during your commute and use our mobile compatibility for on-the-go studying. rn

Pace yourself during study sessions

As you answer practice questions, aim to spend an average of one minute and 15 seconds (or less) per multiple-choice question. If you don’t know the answer, make an educated guess, flag the question and come back to it later if you have time. Practicing working at this pace helps you know when it’s time to guess an answer on exam day. Additionally, use the unlimited practice exams to develop rigor in preparation for exam day.rn
