Think of it as an assembly line

The process of developing, evaluating and ultimately approving a CPA Study Material is thorough. A question could experience as many as 20 reviews with 20-30 different people before it appears on your exam. This procedure makes the question, and the exam, as fair as possible. fairness in this sense implies that each question offers you the opportunity to exhibit the knowledge, proficiency and abilities that entry-level CPAs are expected to have. Fairness likewise implies that emotion-laden words and ideas are expelled from the questions so that you will focus on the intended CPA-related content.

What you see is what you get 

Have you ever thought about whether there could be more than one right answer on an exam question? As indicated by Tim Habick, exam development manager, "Questions are intended to have one and only one right answer. All incorrect answer options are intended to be incorrect, and the right answer choice is intended to be clearly right. If you understand the content, you ought to be able to recognize the right choice from the incorrect options. Try not to introduce unrealistic prospects into question situations. There is no reason to make assumptions about facts not in evidence in the question.

Leave feelings out of it 

As indicated by the Lead Manager of Exam Development, "We want to assure that applicants can concentrate solely on the content of the question and not be distracted by anything besides the content." He includes, "For instance, an item might test the significant concept of disaster recovery, however, we avoid giving any superfluous and upsetting insights about the disaster itself."

Since you've had a brief look into the behind-the-scenes preparation of a CPA Review Course, hopefully, you feel somewhat more comfortable and familiar with the material you're being tested on. Keep in mind, if you're stumped on an MCQ, choose the answer option"C." You'll be right 25% of the time.
