The CPA Exam community & online study group to help you pass!

I seem to be falling into a pattern, not sure if I like it...I'll have a day where I work 9-12 hours, basically the entire day, on my Becker review--and then the next day I'll barely be able to motivate myself to do 2 hours.  Which means that the following day I feel behind and work like crazy and perpetuate the cycle -.-

Anyone have some good tips on making and maintaining a steady schedule?  I'd rather work 5-6 hours a day than 10 one day, 2 the next!

How about another blog update one where you passed AUD!  ;-)  Congrats!

I think that this is very common.  I try to limit myself by not studying over 8 hours a day even if I feel like studying longer.  It helps so I don't become fatigued, unmotivated, or behind in the material.  It's good to take breaks too.  I could study every day of each week, but I try to take off one full day a week to give myself a break.  Good luck on BEC!  I take AUD in three days.  I'm looking forward to taking five days off after this exam :)

There are many people in your same position - studying hard followed by hardly studying. It happens in every type of testing environment, and I've experienced it myself on more than one occasion. I would suggest going to our site and trying out one of our new free tools, the Study Planner. You can plug in a start date, end date, and when you want to study. It'll take your information and create a custom schedule for you to follow, based on what you want to study and when you want to study it. It's available with our CPA exam prep free trial, so stop by the site at Fast Forward Academy and see if helps you out. We'll be happy to help put you in position to succeed in your CPA career.

I study for in 45:15 min intervals, 45 mins of study 15 mins of rest doing something else.

Try that out.
