    @a-crew-well This is exactly my point! I did all of that and still got above a 75. The exam will definitely take a mental toll on you. And the studying process is DEFINITELY a struggle. However, you can pass by making horrible mistakes so that's why I don't think that it's as hard as it might seem. I hope the clears up any confusion. Glad you like the tips and hope you find your perfect pump up song!

    @ThisisWILD I do understand what you're trying to say, but you literally said “these exams are not that hard”. I think that's what's rubbing a couple people the wrong way, because it's just honestly not true for most people. Doesn't take away from your overall post, and I absolutely agree with your overall message. Congrats again for passing, that is a huge achievement!!

    ” I will say that these exams are not that hard.”

    sure they are not that hard if you have time to study full time. Most of us out here are working full time difficult jobs and have families to support. I appreciate the look back and advice, and agree with a lot of it- but saying the exams aren't that hard can be quite triggering for people out here. It's a hard process especially if you work full time. If it were really not that bad- more people would do it and wouldn't come here for endless advice and support.

    just saying.

    I can and I will- Don't give up!

    @jkearns23 Again, (if you looked at my previous replies you would have seen I addressed this), I never ever said the process wasn't hard. OF COURSE the process is hard! I wanted to give up so many times! You're right, there's a reason why not everyone is a CPA and the passing rate is around 50%.
    Again, I'm saying the exam itself is not as difficult as it may seem once you take it and see that you can still make terrible mistakes and pass. I am not trying to trigger anyone, I was trying to be encouraging. My mentors have also told me “the exams are not that hard” and I didn't understand what they meant until I took it. I commend everyone who is studying for the CPA and passing while working full-time and with families, including yourself. It seems like you're super close in getting your license, good luck!

    I took the “not that hard” line to mean “you can do it – stick with it” – especially after the follow-up comments.

    Thank you for the great writeup and congrats on being DONE!

    I have to agree with watching videos at 1.5x or 2x. Do 1.5x for more difficult to understand things and 2x for the rest. Makes getting through videos so much better since they are more interesting as the content just feels so more tightly packed. Less getting distracted. Also makes rewatching videos more tolerable for when you need to review points, great for a way to do a final cram before exam day.

    After being used to 2x now I cannot watch at 1x since it feels like slow motion. Too bad there wasnt an option to make class lectures in college go at 2x speed, I may have not felt class so dull.

    I really like your idea of saving the simulations for final review week. I feel that it’s very easy to forget the little details that may come up in a simulation answer, and it may be better to incorporate the sims for final review week. Thanks for the tip.

    @mercenary Agreed! I found that 1.75x speed was a happy medium haha!

    @retired-audit-intern You're welcome! I found after doing sims after each chapter was such a waste of time but I LOVED using it as a final review exercise! I agree, the sims will help you understand some concepts way better!
