As a CPA Program candidate, you have access to an extensive range of resources to help you master your studies. While you have the flexibility to choose different study support options to suit your learning style, we recommend a four-step learning approach using your study guide alongside the online resources available via My Online Learning (MYOL).

Within MYOL, you’ll find a link to access your Guided Learning resources, housed by our official learning partner, KnowledgEquity. Most of your study resources now feature as part of the guided learning experience.

Watch this short video for an overview of this four-step process, and for tips on when and where to access your in-semester support:

Before you begin, watch the Study Essentials webinar available as part of your Guided Learning experience, accessed via My Online Learning. The webinar includes advice about your exam and tips to help you develop an effective study routine.

Then, you’ll be ready to begin the four-step study process outlined below.


Step one is to learn the material of each module. Your study guide will be available in My Online Learning before the commencement of the semester. You can also track the delivery of your printed study guide via My CPA Program.


Step two is to practice. Work through the module quizzes and mid-semester practice test available in Guided Learning.


Step three is to review and consolidate. Watch the weekly webinar in Guided Learning to summarise what you’ve learnt. You can also refer to the Ask the Expert forums to clarify any content that may be unclear.

Practice makes perfect - we recommend you repeat this sequence for each module before moving to the next.


After learning, practicing and reviewing, it’s time to complete. Watch the exam preparation webinar and attempt the end of semester practice exams in Guided Learning to test your knowledge of the entire subject.
