Why Brainscape’s CPA exam prep is different.

Passing the CPA exam is no easy feat. In fact, the first-time pass rate is just 30%. To further complicate matters, most CPA candidates are in their late twenties, working full-time jobs, and have other commitments like raising a family. As a result, studying is often low down on the totem pole of priorities.

Therefore, what is vitally important is for CPA candidates to work with study tools that streamline the learning process, making it hyper-efficient, accessible at any time (and anywhere), and organized with easy metrics for progress. This is exactly what Brainscape brings with its collection of over 1,300 web and mobile flashcards.

Our CPA flashcards have been designed in strict accordance with the CPA exam curriculum, and use optimal learning principles like spaced repetition and active recall to help you study faster and more efficiently. It was developed by Ninja CPA and educator, Jeff Elliot of who has balancing life and CPA exam prep down to an art.

What this means is: your studying has just become a whole lot easier!
