How To Completely Bomb the CPA Exam in Five Easy Steps

Do You Ever Feel Truly Prepared?

Do You Ever Feel Truly Prepared?

Do you ever feel truly prepared?  I test soon after rescheduling 3 (3!!) times due to failure to actually study.  I've used three different providers and I am still doing badly on MCQs (trending 60%) and have not even attempted the SIMS yet.  I just do not feel prepared. Does everyone feel this way going into the test?  If I reschedule again (if I even find an open appointment!) it will mean my NTS for REG will expire before I can take it. That means another fee. Ugh! - Jessica S.

With the two tests I've passed with Becker I was trending at 60% on progress tests the night before both tests. No you don't ever feel truly ready and putting it off can be worse because you forget things very quickly on tests with this much info. Just take it and go from there! - Allison S.

To answer your question, you will never fully feel prepared but you will at least know you have a good idea/understanding of the most of the concepts. Also make sure you are actually grasping the concepts when studying.   I feel like you have too much materials. It is okay if you are actually learning from each of them (one explain better than the other based on your learning style). Sometimes it is not always about the amount of mcq's or studying you do, it is about how well you understand the materials while doing it. Studying effectively is really important. - Farah A.

NEVER felt prepared. EVER... Especially after I walk out the exam- I felt like I was studying for a different test in some cases. - Rebecca M.

I would suggest to keep your schedule as is and give it a shot. Do your best. You have already paid for it and seems like you have come a long way with regards to preparation. Why waste this opportunity? You will never know. Perhaps you can use this opportunity as a mock test. - Noble V.

You're not alone feeling this way! My NTS is expiring so I have to commit to taking exam in three weeks and I am super anxious still in F7. - Esther M.
