Having the right study notes and revision kits is critical for passing Certified Public Accountants (CPA) exams. Fundamentally, having reliable and up-to-date notes, past papers and revision kits contributes significantly to a student’s ability to pass their exams in the first attempt. There are various sources of notes and revision kits for CPA students. However, it is imperative to identify appropriate up-to-date, and reliable notes and revision kits

KASNEB Materials

Often students will borrow notes and revision papers from peers, yet, they may be outdated and thus not reliable. Also, shared notes often contain errors and incorrect information which ultimately affects a student’s ability to pass their exams. Therefore, it is critical for students to check the official KASNEB (Kenya Accountants and Secretaries National Examination Board) website for recommended study materials, including syllabi, textbooks, and past papers.

KASNEB provides the course outline for each of the units which should serve as a checklist for students when they are studying. Studying day and night with the wrong material will ultimately lead to exam failure and frustration. If student does have access to the KASNEB website, they can enroll for classes in one of CPA accredited colleges. In the event the student does not want to enroll for classes they can still get notes, revision kits, and past papers from an accredited college.

It is imperative for CPA students to invest in reputable textbooks that cover the CPA syllabus. You can find textbooks from well-known publishers that are aligned with the KASNEB syllabus. CPA students can get a list of the CPA recommended books list from the KASNEB website. Notably, the CPA-recommended book list is available in the course outline that students can download on the KASNEB website for free.
