Brief Biography: I am a fifth year senior at UW-L working toward my 150 credits to sit for the CPA exam. This is my first semester being a tutor at the Murphy Learning Center.

Study Tip: Create a schedule of what you want to get done and create a "To-Do” list and stick to it. That way you have goals of what you want to accomplish and have a guideline of what you need to get done.

Brief Biography: I am a fifth year senior and expect to graduate in May (finally!). Upon graduation I plan to start studying for the CPA exam and will begin working at Wipfli in La Crosse.

Study TipRead the summary of a Chapter before tackling the whole thing right away. It will give you a good idea of what the chapter entails and will set you up better for success. Also, take mini notes while reading. Even small comments that you make throughout a chapter will help when it comes time to study for the exams.
