The problem i faced the last time i studied for Core 1 was struggling to memorize everything on financial reporting due to which i was having problems with applying them on case studies and MCQ's. My back Sciatica problem also flared up due to which i failed to withdraw from the exam on time and now have been charged a module attempt.
CPA Professional Education Program: Core 1 module
For Core 2, what are the best notes for Managerial Accounting. My problem is i spent so much time memorizing all the technical and very little time practicing MCQ's and Cases as i fear without knowing the technical stuff it is impossible to do the cases and the MCQ's. Based on my observation Prepformula notes were the worst but they had the most questions. PASS notes were not all that organized, Densmore notes were pretty neatly organized.
I also wanted to ask whether relying on the Oracle notes is sufficient? Would like some good feedback as i am determined to clear the CPA PEP exams asap now and don't want to waste any more time. Practising the cases and MCQ timed and debriefing them properly are key. Make sure you do the mock exams especially for electives. HTK Consulting has good free notes but tax stuff are kind of outdated. I found prepformula webinar summary slides a bit helpful actually. Passed Core 2 and PM using cpa materials plus a bit of Densmore notes.
People relied on Oracle documents and cpa materials and still passed. Also for financial reporting issues, it helps to know how to navigate the PDF handbook in secureexam when finding criteria especially for long stuff like research and development costs criteria. Very important to practice in SE even though it is frustrating to use. OP - If you have a medical issue, you should be exempt from attempt. Defer to a future date with doctor's note. I deferred my exam twice already due to medical issues.
For studying, there' so much damn material, it's impossible to cover it all. The Oracle has so much topics, could take forever to go through them all. For Core 1 and 2, I just took a day off before the exam and studied the solutions to the CPA materials.
Core 1, most of the FR stuff you can refer to the handbook while doing the exam just be familiar for how they want you to write it. And i believe CPA materials prepare you well enough for the assurance part.
I barely studied tax as it has little weight on the exam. Core 2, I remember the cases on d2l covered the topics you needed to know. Also, I think CPA places more weight on the cases than they say.Be patient with others. Keep disagreements polite. You can feel free to be "harsh", but never insulting.

I studied for IFRS and accounting memo with accounting issues as that's what a three different people told me it would be from prior exp.
The tax part caught me off guard so I did the best I could. The memo wasn't too bad but it threw me off my plan so that could go either way! My keyboard switched to French part way through so I didn't know how to get my quotation marks to work so that really sucked hah.

Case was pretty easy like previous people said it would be. Really hoping what people say about the case being the deal breaker is true. Agreed, MCQ was weird more than particularly hard. It felt really random, and impossible to study for. Even if you study lots, much of it wouldn't even be on the exam. Man case was soft except the tax portion.

Latest News. Most Read. From The Tax Adviser. From CPA Insider.What I tell everyone going through the modules is to treat these like an exam. They should treat each of the practice cases as if they were the case on the exam. This means writing the minute cases under exam conditions i. This will help you track how well you did in the allotted 60 minutes. You can then still put in additional effort through debrief to make sure you truly understand all of the issues.
My suggestion is to spend as much time on debriefing as you spent writing the case. The Core 1 and 2 exams focus heavily on multiple-choice. Once again, treat your practice multiple-choice questions like an exam. I found the multiple-choice questions to be particularly tricky, so I practiced them often. Multiple-choice questions test a vast breadth of knowledge, so you need to ensure that you are comfortable with all of the concepts you come across throughout the module.
