How to Stay Focused on Passing the CPA Exam

It’s so easy to get distracted, even defeated when studying for the CPA exam. Here’s how I got through the CPA exam while working full time, being a mom, and still having a social life.

This is NOT the traditional CPA exam review course.

I built this program around what candidates tell me they need. They’re committed to studying but they want to maximize their study time. They want a different way of looking at the accounting concepts, instead of glazing over something and then memorizing for an exam that’s weeks or months away.


The Winston CPA Exam Virtual Classroom is not like other review programs:

​ - Proven study strategies and exam tips not found in traditional review courses

 - Learn frequently-tested accounting concepts not just memorization

 - Self-paced format supplements other course materials

 - Created with love by a 13-time CPA candidate who understands the CPA exam struggle

Hi. I'm Nikki, CPA Exam Instructor & Coach

I sat for 13 exams over 1,373 days. I struggled with the CPA exam because (1) I didn’t know how to study effectively and (2) couldn't find time to study being a mom and working full-time I already didn’t have enough time to do anything else.

The Winston CPA Exam Virtual Classroom contains all of the strategies, simulations tips, and question tricks that I learned as a CPA candidate. If you're struggling to pass the CPA exam, join us in the virtual classroom.

Reviews & Kind Words

 

"The FAR workshop was very informative, especially with the MCQs. I find it better to go over the exam material with a live person verses watching a lecture more than once."

I offer CPA exam review & coaching for professionals.

 

I worked in accounting for 10 years before I got serious about the CPA exam.

I sat for 13 exams over 1,373 days. I struggled with the CPA exam because (1) I didn’t know how to study effectively and (2) couldn't find time to study being a mom and working full-time I already didn’t have enough time to do anything else.

My biggest professional accomplishment is passing that exam and becoming a CPA. I started my journey with the traditional approach of enrolling in a review course - spending hours reading 60+ page chapters, watching lectures, trying to consume all of this information - only to get to the practice questions and all of my answers were wrong. Here I am putting in all these hours of studying and re-reading things 3 and 4 times like why is this not clicking, and then I realized that method wasn’t working for me. I passed the CPA exam when I switched my study strategies and focused on understanding the concepts instead of trying to memorize everything.
