I am Nikki Winston and I sat for exams 13 times - over the course of 1,373 days. I counted the days like I was doing a bid in prison. I took AUD, BEC and FAR 3 times each and REG 4 times. I purchased all or part of most of the CPA exam review courses out there and even after spending all of that money I still felt like there was something missing in my studying.

I ended up filling in the voids myself. I’d read a 70-page chapter then be like ok, what did I just learn? I don’t think I got it so let me watch the videos to reinforce. Or let me do some practice questions to make sure. Went through that. Passed FAR the first time, failed audit because I was tired of studying and just winged the exam, went through so many motions of pass/fail/pass/fail/fail/lose credit and I was in this never-ending cycle.


After that I knew something had to change. I took a couple days off to decompress and changed my study habits. I started getting creative with how I learned. I didn’t want to go back to the review courses that had me stressed out.


I told myself that once I figured out what it took to beat the CPA exam I would share it with other candidates. Those candidates who:


don’t have 40 or 50 hours a week to studyhave other obligations like working full-time, a family, other life events happeningare stressed out about the CPA exam and need more effective ways to study

These premium episodes are here to inspire you to get motivated to take the CPA exam. Of course, we have to talk about exam strategies and study tips, plus what to expect after you pass the CPA exam.
