To reflect your effort in USCPA exam effectively


Reading the blogs of many of my friends and readers of this blog, I found they will soon be flying to US to sit for CPA exam. And that reminds me of those days when I sat for the exam a year ago. Fortunately I got through the exam, being very much encouraged by so many of their kind messages left on my blog right before I left for US.

Almost one year has passed since then and so I’m afraid my technical knowledge about the exam contents could t be getting out of date now.
But, if there still remains some advice that I can provide, the thing is to keep yourself as calm as possible and never get panic in the exam.

Never get panic in the exam --- this phrase may sound just a cliché, but I believe this is more important than is often thought, which is , however, often overlooked.

Whole the process to sit for the exam is actually quite simple.

STEP 1: We prepare for the exam, studying those textbooks and materials.
STEP 2: We sit for the exam just to show we have made enough preparation.

So, when we fail in an exam, the cause of the failure is reasonably assumed to be:

CAUSE1: preparation wasn’t enough
CAUSE2: preparation was enough but it wasn’t reflected on the exam

About the former one, huge amount of analysis have been provided on many other USCPA exam related blogs and online BBSs, as well as here on my blog because we all want to make ourselves ready for the exam by the date of the exam.

But we tend to overlook the latter cause, which is insufficient reflection of sufficient preparation.

I guess you are thinking “It’s easy to note that, but there aren’t much we can do for that.” You’re right. I agree with you. But, since there is little we can do for that, maybe it wouldn’t be much big trouble even if we do those “little” matters.

Now, what are those little matters?
1: practical time management
Time constraint often gets us into panic in our daily life --- in the office and at home. And I think USCPA exam isn’t an exception. It’s very important, therefore, to allocate time effectively during the exam. We are all aware of that. Just being aware of that is one thing, and it’s another thing to actually carry out some tactics to put time under control. I introduced some method here and there on my blog so far. But, any method is OK as long as the method is really practicable for you. But I think you had better prepare some specific tactics for time management and become used to using that tactics by the date of the exam, because you have to concentrate on solving each question once the exam starts at the test center.


2: doubt ourselves when a question seems very unfamiliar
And we often get panic when coming across a question that we have never anticipated in the exam. It could be a brand new type question. Then, don’t be so nervous because such a question is new to all the other candidates as well. But, before reaching that conclusion, it may be worth doubting ourselves again.
We sometimes cannot identify our friends just by looking at him/her from his/her back. But, once we look at him/her from the front, we can easily identify who s/he is. Likewise, it may be possible that we misinterpret the meaning or the intent of the question at first sight, but later figure it out by seeing it from another point of view.
As for me, whenever I encountered such seemingly unfamiliar question, I took a deep breath three times, with my left palm on my chest to calm myself down. And it worked. I noticed I was almost misinterpreting the question and then returned back to the right track, solving the question with a typical familiar approach I practiced thousands of times when I prepared for the exam in Japan. So when a question looks very arcane, enforce yourself to calm down and try to observe the question from a different perspective.

Well, I’m sorry for giving unsolicited advice.
But I hope your effortful challenge will surely bear fruit successfully!

Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood Luck!
