This Is the One Time You Study to the Test

Posted by Dr. Phil Yaeger on May 25, 2019 6:00:00 AM

If you don't read this whole post, remember this: Even if you don't use us, use the blueprints. They're important. They're a great tool. They will help you pass the CPA Exam and become a CPA.

When studying for any one of the CPA Exams, the sheer quantity of material available to be tested (and therefore material to study) can be overwhelming. Meanwhile, it's no secret that the intensity of the exams is a simulation of the real world and a practitioner's life in accounting. You WILL need to know this information in your life as a CPA. Luckily, you'll have reference materials available for use after the Exam. That's is why I will tell you to study to the test - and be specific. As specific as possible! And no, we don't mean "buy our materials because they're the best" (this is not a sales pitch); it's a declaration. I'm taking a stand, and it's not about my review school or me. I'm sick and tired of candidates not going into the Exam adequately prepared.

Every CPA Should Make a "To Don't" List

Posted by Dr. Phil Yaeger on May 23, 2018 11:29:44 AM

Everyone has heard and most of us regularly keep a "To Do" list. Their detailed tasks sit line by line on folded up sheets of paper in pockets and in the notes sections of our phones. We cross them off and in doing so, feel a sense of accomplishment. One thing we don't give ourselves credit for is the very thing which gets in the way of crossing more of those "To Do" items off.

Busy Season Part 3: Moving From Busy Season to Testing

Posted by Dr. Phil Yaeger on Apr 18, 2018 1:10:09 PM

Say goodbye to the Tax Season and hello to studying for the CPA Exam!

Congratulations on making it out of busy season. Take a bit of time to celebrate and savor the feeling of all you learned and accomplished in the past few months! That hectic pace of life is past, and it may be a very good idea for you to take a bit of a breather from studying. 

Don’t let the celebration drag on too long; you are already used to being highly productive and maintaining a rigid schedule, so don’t lose too much of that highly productive no-time-to-waste attitude. Pick a date on the calendar to start back to studying and stick to it.
