The CPA Exam community & online study group to help you pass!
There are 11 common mistakes CPA exam candidates make that lead to failure, extra exam fees, added stress and anxiety. Retaking a section of the exam is going to cost you hundreds of dollars.
If you can avoid these mistakes, you put yourself ahead of the pack and put yourself in a great position to pass the exam.
The 11 mistakes I see most candidates making are:
1. Not making a personalized study plan (read)
2. Not doing enough MCQ’s and simulations (read)
3. Not getting people close to you on your side (read)
4. Not taking breaks (read)
5. Focusing on your strengths instead of your weaknesses (read)
