The CPA Exam community & online study group to help you pass!
I asked myself this question many times. Some of my peers who pass the CPA exam told me I should try to study first for the part that would be more difficult for me. Others told me I should study the part that I think I have more experience on and will be easier to study. Even though there is no right answer to this question something that is clear is that each individual is different for this reason its better that you study what you think will work best for you. It is true that taking the first part that you are more familiar with, will give you a greater chance of success, and it will boost your confidence for the remaining parts. However if you have difficulties with a particular part and you leave it for the end and you don’t pass all parts within the 18 months window period you might need to retake certain parts. I will suggest first taking the parts you have more difficulties on, that way you have more time to study without worrying about the 18 month window period because this 18 month deadline to pass all four parts of the CPA will start once you already pass the most difficult part for you.
I also advise not to take REG and FAR together because you will get so confuse between accrual basis and cash basis. However this is just a suggestion good luck with everything
