Abstract/Summary

In order to determine the factors that contribute to topping the CPA board examination, a number of variables were enumerated and assessed. The topnotcher's and non-topnotcher's from the May 2015 and October 2014 board examinations were surveyed. With the aid of the factor analysis and logistic regression analysis gathered data were analyzed and results revealed that six factors significantly contribute to topping the board exam. Five of which were similar to the discriminant model obtained in an additional study. Conducting a sensitivity analysis, the logistic regression model proved to be a more accurate predictor than the discriminant function. Being a well-rounded student, being a hardworking student, the number of hours spent on studying, age, and aggregate family income were found to contribute positively. On the other hand, being a laidback student is found to contribute negatively. Age and social media were also found to be significant but only under logistic regression analysis.
