CPA Exam Prep

Blogger: Eric Rivetna

A lot of people seem to be confused about how to prepare for the CPA exam. If you do a Google search on CPA exam preparation you will see a wide array of people struggling with how much time they should allot to study for each part. The AICPA suggests that for FAR you should study 132 hours, for REG 112 hours, for AUD 96 hours and for BEC 76 hours. These are merely suggestions designated by the AICPA, and you may find yourself needing more or less time depending on which part of the exam you are studying for.

It is my suggestion that you take these as a baseline and map out your study time well before you go through the process of scheduling an exam date. Be sure to think about the time you must allot for work, family obligations, rest, exercise, and meals. All these things are important when you are going through the process of becoming a CPA.

As for me, I need to get back to studying myself! So, good luck to everyone who has the intent of becoming a CPA. It’s a tough road, but definitely worth it.
