As can be seen from the above analysis: the first textbook, two, three, four and five is the most important part of the topic and content of, and Part VI and Part VII should be used as part of cost management focus of the examination times.

Second, the law propositions Analysis 2009 test


Kinds of questions and test scores in recent years as shown in Table 1, <<financial cost management>> increased year by year the number of questions, objective questions and subjective questions into a corresponding proportion of 50% and 50%, of which the proportion scores of objective questions increase Subjective scores dropped, indicating that in 2009 the overall degree of difficulty of the exam subjects have decreased greatly, should be more emphasis on the book-oriented, thoroughly understand the material under the premise of basic knowledge, abilities and skills.

Since 2010 <<financial cost management>> textbook revision total material accounted for a large new content, new year based on past experience, change the contents of the propositions have become the focus of the year, then generally test to Candidates effectively control materials and heavy and difficult to learn from previous years questions, for a better grasp <<financial cost management>> test the proposition of knowledge structure and the direction of great significance because of the CPA exam is the basic principle of the proposition: a comprehensive assessment, focused theory with practice, focusing on the practice of certified public accountants to examine the candidates in the practical operation ability, so candidates should strictly follow the syllabus prescribed scope and resource materials carefully designated to conduct a comprehensive, systematic study, to be eligible for the CPA exam and related conditions be familiar with requirements and carry out targeted review preparation, this is a strong guarantee for the majority of candidates pass.

Fourth, the learning guide

First, the development of specific learning plan. Forewarned is forearmed, without prejudging the waste. Thorough and practicable to develop a detailed plan, there is a good start, candidates who can progress according to curriculum counseling, reasonable arrangements for their learning programs. Suggested a 'focused' principle to allocate valuable learning time. 'Focused' has two meanings: (1) focus on the weak sections: the early chapters focus on comprehension, such as Chapter 3, Chapter 4, Section 5 chapter, Chapter 10 and other post-focus memory section, such as Chapter 1, Chapter 12, Chapter 22, etc., (2) focus on the year to add, change, because in recent years, new, change the contents of the year to test the general , as Chapter 13, Chapter 14, etc., the candidates only in accordance with syllabus requirements and resource materials to take 'a comprehensive review, to seize the key breakthroughs in difficult, master' strategy, in order to lay a good foundation for the examination.

Secondly, the materials to see at least three times. Crude first pass read, without understanding, only requested information <<financial cost management>> knowledge about the book, the contents of the main quick, make the appropriate mark. Intensive second time, carefully read the textbook chapters, proper selection of exercises to practice and consolidate the main points of knowledge, the more difficult sections, may be appropriate to read the relevant reference materials to better understand, and in order to improve the ability of taking, you can select one to two materials succinctly and intensive counseling or study guides, exam books, and strive to achieve through the practice from the 'work experience' to 'test mode' shift from 'knowledge points' to 'test scores' of conversion. read the third time series, this stage, we must pay attention to before and after the point of contact and knowledge mastery, should be fast reading, find themselves not remember the simplicity of the knowledge points, its major breakthroughs, only a deep understanding of its key points, repeat the exercise exercises, understand its principles and master the method of calculation, is a magic weapon for winning candidates.

Again, select typical examples and practice questions familiar to nearly three years. To do the exercises can test the effect of reading, but also to consolidate the results of reading, doing exercises for the examination both necessary and important look at the same time teaching the second time , the contents of each chapter may do some typical exercises (such as new teaching materials and the same questions over the years), and strive to grasp the important points of the chapter, looking at the same time teaching the third time, to choose some of the integrated cross-section title (such as calendar year of the math exam) exercises, seek knowledge before and after the point of mastery, replicability, and on this basis will focus on problem-solving training, to sum up the upgrade, and strive to answer quickly by routine, for the shortest period of time from The answer to the best effect, in addition, six sets of exam should be done about high quality simulation questions, two days of a better arrangement, and <<financial cost management>> the test of time consistent, continued to test before the finish questions, you can do problem for the case, then examine the essentials of teaching here again, to make one last fill a vacancy, it can either check the comprehensive examination capability, but also testing whether the state has entered the exam is worth noting that Do not give up the books, the sea blindly engage in tactical and only system to know the contents of the book, understand the basic principles of teaching, to master the main points of knowledge, can really do to improve the speed and accuracy problems.

Finally, the computing time when the focus on improving the ability to calculate accurate. 'Financial cost management>> large amount of test questions, the difficulty of deep test of knowledge and proficiency to master the essentials of the spot response capabilities, candidates usually do once only to their own problems when calculation of the opportunity, do not develop the habit of checking, careless attention to overcoming problems, we must improve the calculation accuracy. To achieve this, candidates can usually pay attention to the sensitivity of digital culture, and more hands-on design, calculation, as long as full use of work, it is not difficult to pass the exam.
