I recently passed CPA exam and i can tell you without question that if i passed it so can anyone else.
Little background about me. I took accounting 1 in 1999 and accounting 2 in 2001. I received my bs in finance in 2008. Between 2008 and 1999 i didn’t take any other accounting classes. Yes finance is kind of related to accounting but it really is not.
Between 08-now i work for glass installer company doing bookkeeping (ar/ap) nothing complex at all.
In early 2018 i decided that i should do something with my life and looked up how to become CPA. Ended up taking 7 accounting classes including ethics class and quickbooks. With exception of quickbook i cheated on all of those online classes test using quizlet.
Once i got qualified i study for Far using Wiley and took 10 weeks. My method was to watch the video, go back and write the notes for that video. Take notes on each slide and do chapter test. I skipped all other assessments. M-F i study for 4 hours each day. Sat for my day off except if i felt behind any video to catch up and read the notes. Basically i took usually 2-3 more notes i had to read. I didn’t bother with physical book, flashcards etc. I took 2 weeks to review the material. The more you review, the more automatic it becomes. Becoming familiar with the question is not an issue as long as you actually read the question and do the calculations.
For all other exams i took 6 weeks to study as the amount of material was smaller compare to Far.
