What is CRUSH the CPA Exam All About?
Well, it’s definitely not about me. CRUSH is a blog all about helping you dominate the CPA exam while maintaining a high quality of life. This includes learning efficient study techniques, test strategies, and developing a laser-like focus to help you retain as much information as possible on the day of the exam.
Most people have probably told you to say goodbye to your social life and relationships once you start studying for the exam (At least that’s what everyone told me). I can tell you from personal experience, that’s a bunch of crap. Those people aren’t liars, they just didn’t have the knowledge or resources to properly plan, study, or prioritize. CRUSH is here to make sure that you do.
Who Created CRUSH?
My name is Bryce and I work for an accounting firm in San Diego, California. You know those students in your accounting classes that were naturally gifted and always got good grades? Well, I was not one of them. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t consider myself dumb by any means, but I definitely had to work much harder for my 3.0 GPA than most people.
Despite my average accounting abilities, I was able to pass all 4 CPA exams on the first try while also working 50-hours a week at my job. On my first 2 exams I did what most people do and focused on the wrong study material and neglected my friends and family because I just didn’t have enough time for them anymore. After that second test I knew that there just had to be an easier way and I realized something very important: I had been studying the way the CPA review course tells EVERYONE to study instead of focusing on the ways that I learn best.
I started cutting out any part of the review course that wasn’t helping me learn and my results were astounding. I shaved off 45 hours from my total study time on those last 2 tests and actually scored higher! Time is the most valuable asset you have and I am confident that if you trust your instinct and adjust your study habits you will have much more of it.
After graduating from San Diego State I registered for the CPA exam and was overwhelmed with all the complexities I encountered. Just getting my Notice To Schedule (NTS) was a feat on its own but even after that I found myself full of questions like “Which CPA review course should I buy?” and “What section should I take first?”
I remember thinking to myself – I wish there was one website I could go to that had all this information on it. After talking with many of my co-workers and peers I found that they were also having many of the same problems and uncertainties. So I started documenting everything I wish I would have known before signing up, studying, and taking the CPA exam. And thus, crushthecpaexam.com was born.
The best part about this entire process is the response I’ve received from CPA candidates who found this site helpful and reached out to thank me. All of the thanks and praise for my hard work has motivated me to work even harder on the website and provide you with the best CPA exam resource on the internet.
