    I am listening audio but I am not even sure if I am retaining anything. I have always been a visual learner.

    Is anybody else experiencing the same problem ?

    Please advise.

    Thank you!

    I don't really learn best from straight audio either. I still try to play the audio notes as much as I can tolerate in the car for my long commute. Hopefully I'll pick up a few pieces of info that will help me out on test day. I think I get the most out of reading the text on my own without videos or audio, so I make that the bulk of my review process. But… if I have it available, I may as well try to squeeze out as many points as I can and take advantage of it. But everybody learns differently. Some people do MCQ alone, so do what works best for you.

    I have trouble concentrating in general. As such, I have to rely on both my UWorld Roger CPA textbook and the audio/lecture feed in order to grasp the subject. Both work in synergy with one another. Also, I have a tactic that when I really get confused, I repeat the subject again and again until it sticks better. CPA study is definitely a difficult matter, so stick with it and keep your eyes on the prize.

    We all have different learning styles. Audio didn't do much for me unless there were slides to read along with it. For me it was MCQs and reading through examples in the Ninja book and the answers provided in the MCQ answers. Videos with walkthroughs of calculations and methods really help me, too. Find what works for you and stick to that.

    Experience was the worst part of the journey for me. You?
