CPAexcel's Core Study Materials are ready to help you through every step of your CPA Exam study process. These materials are included with every course and will take you from the very beginning, all the way to your final review.
CPAexcel’s unique Exam Planner is a quick and simple way to plan all the actions you need to take and pass the CPA Exam. Using actual study hours completed by successful CPAexcel candidates, Exam Planner creates your Personalized Exam Plan and schedule. The CPAexcel Exam Planner provides you with detailed dates and assignments to ensure that you stay on track and are completely prepared for exam day.
Create a Personalized Study Schedule simply by entering your preferred testing date for each exam section. A customized timeline will illustrate the exam events that will require your action (e.g. apply to sit) along with the study assignments you need to complete to be ready to pass each exam. Additionally, your personalized Exam Plan will also monitor and alert you of important exam event milestones like submitting applications and upcoming exam dates.
Manage your progress against milestones in your Exam Plan:
The unique CPAexcel self-study course format combined with this Personalized Exam Planner allows you to create the perfect schedule for your needs and goals. Take your time, or pass the exam in a hurry.
Quickly discover your strengths and weaknesses in every subject area before you begin to study. Each of CPAexcel's Bite-Sized Lessons℠ includes a Diagnostic Exam which indicates your current knowledge level in that area. Using the Diagnostic Exams, you can determine which subjects you have already mastered, and where you need to focus your study time for the greatest score improvement.
Since the CPA Exam covers a massive amount of material and your study time is precious, CPAexcel helps you select a Study Strategy that best suits your current knowledge level and available time.
Performance Metrics are summarized visually and color-coded to help you focus your study time and identify your current level of proficiency. View results for every lesson, including correct and incorrect answers and rationales. Track your progress to see how well you are progressing and how consistently you perform.
CPAexcel's Efficient Learning System (ELS) enables students to learn more per study hour. By learning more per study hour, students answer more exam questions correctly and pass the CPA Exam at higher rates.
The Efficient Learning System makes learning easier and more effective in these ways:
Over 2,800 pages of Electronic Study Text are written by professors from the top accounting schools in the country (UT Austin, Northern Illinois, CSU Sacramento and more). Search though every page instantly for keywords using our library feature. Every page of electronic text is print friendly so that you can print the sections you need, take them with you or mark them up as you study.
CPAexcel contains over 5,000 AICPA Past Exam Questions with full answer rationales explaining precisely why each choice is either wrong or right.
Additionally, more than 6,200 Proficiency Questions are designed to test your reading comprehension and basic subject knowledge. Set yourself up for success by assessing your basic knowledge before diving into a section or tackling exam questions. How you perform on these questions will then influence what materials you spend the most time studying.
More than 4,100 Digital Flashcards cover crucial testing points in each exam section. Created by former CPAexcel student Christine Howard, the first person in history to get a perfect score on all four exam sections on the first try. We continue to update Christine's cards regularly for our students. Our flash cards are perfect for quickly reinforcing and testing your knowledge in all exam areas.
Open Student Discussion groups are integrated into the CPAexcel lesson overview for easy access to the topics you would like to discuss. Create your own Private Study Group(s) for your friends and colleagues to study together based on a common study and exam schedule. Add Private Discussions to ask questions and share answers and to discuss any aspect of the course just among your own group.
Over 250 Task-Based Simulations delivered through an exact replica of the user interface you will encounter on the CPA Exam. Simulated CPA Exams mirror the actual exam all the way down to the number, type and mix of questions, time-limits and break policies. Take it as often as you want. Each time you'll get new questions and a full report of your scores detailing your strengths and weakness in every topic.
Most CPA Exam candidates are nervous before the CPA Exam and it is easy to understand why: You don't know whether you'll answer all the questions in time, how many you'll answer correctly, which parts you should have studied more, and what the CPA Exam is really going to be like. Nervousness can degrade your performance.
CPAexcel's Simulated CPA Exams gives you crucial exam experience there is just no other way to get. You'll know exactly what the CPA Exam is like, how to manage your time to answer the maximum number of questions, and how to improve your performance. You'll also boost your comfort and confidence level by experiencing CPA Exam conditions before your official exam day. Our Simulated CPA Exams give you the same type, number and mix of multiple-choice and simulation problems. You use the same time limits, break policies, and the same rules for moving through the sequence of exam material. You'll also have the same on-screen clock ticking down your remaining minutes, and when you are finished each section is weighted and scored differently, corresponding with the actual exam.
You can take CPAexcel's Simulated CPA Exams as often as you want. Each time you're given a new random set of exam questions. And after each exam, you'll receive a highly detailed breakdown of your performance per lesson, per exam, and even per the AICPA Exam outline, helping to pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses.
Much like a dress rehearsal before going on stage opening night, CPAexcel's Final Review fine tunes your exam performance, diminishes anxiety and boosts your competence and comfort level. The Final Review is included in every CPAexcel course and contains the following components:
Here's how it works:
The Final Review is essential to complete your CPA Exam preparation. In fact, it can make all the difference in your final score. Most courses do not include a thorough Final Review - or, if they do, they charge you a lot extra. With CPAexcel, it is included for free with every review course.
