If you are interested in taking the CPA exam, you may want to connect with Varsity Tutors to sign up for Ann Arbor CPA exam prep. The CPA, or Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination, measures the knowledge and skills of entry-level CPAs and you must pass this exam to become a licensed CPA in the United States. Preparing for an exam of the magnitude of the CPA can seem daunting. In fact, there are several sections on the exam where fewer than 50 percent of those who take it pass. As such, it may be beneficial to receive extra guidance through Ann Arbor CPA exam prep.

What concepts can be covered during the Ann Arbor CPA exam prep?

The CPA contains four sections, all of which must be taken within 18 months of taking the first one. The four sections are Business Environment and Concepts, Auditing and Attestation, Financial Accounting and Reporting, and Regulation. You are given four hours to finish each section, but the number and types of questions in each section vary. Topics on the exam include select financial statement accounts, business law, and ethics, among others.

Reviewing relevant topics is an important part of preparing for the exam, but it can also be worthwhile to review test-taking strategies. For example, as you only have so much time to complete the exam, time management can be a factor. You want to make sure you are moving quickly enough to answer every question, but also ensure that you're not moving so quickly you make mistakes. You may also want to work on eliminating incorrect answers based on context. Rather than just picking random answers when you're not sure, you can carefully read through the question to find clues to make an educated guess. It may also be useful to skip more difficult questions at first and focus on the easier questions. This can help with time management while also boosting your confidence. Finding ways to feel confident while taking the exam can go a long way towards performing to the best of your abilities. Some students perform well on practice tests, but not on the actual exam because of nerves. Taking a deep breath and maintaining your confidence can help overcome this.

What are the perks of the different types of Ann Arbor CPA exam prep?

There are two types of CPA exam prep: an Ann Arbor CPA exam prep course and private instruction. Many students choose one option while others choose both. Both options offer quality instruction.

If you prefer collaborating with other students, you may want to enroll in an Ann Arbor CPA exam prep class. Prep classes are similar to regular classes in that you can interact with an instructor and other students. You can learn new material or go over old material with your instructor. You can also engage in class discussions with your classmates to work on your skills. If you aren't sure about a concept, you can reach out to your instructor after class. Studying with others can be valuable because you can get new perspectives about accounting and studying that may help you with the exam and in the future. Your instructor can also offer immediate feedback if they notice you're going astray.

If you want to study in a more personal setting, you may wish to connect with an Ann Arbor CPA tutor. Private tutoring can offer you more control over the topics you prioritize. You can spend extra time reviewing topics you don't know yet while not setting aside as much time on the topics you do. It may also be possible for your instructor to adapt the way they teach to fit with your style of learning. This could involve hands-on activities if you're a physical learner, conversations if you're an auditory learner, or diagrams if you're a visual learner. Private instruction can also cut down on distractions, which can make a big difference for some students.
