A reader asked me if the chapter readings on Knotia were sufficient for CPA PEP Core 2 and whether I used any external resource. My response was that the chapters were adequate, however, I did watch some Youtube videos when I was struggling to understand the concepts from reading.
I am sure many of us used YouTube in college as there are some really high-quality materials out there. To make it easier, I have organized a list of videos I watched by topics when I was going through Core 2 to help with studying.
I would normally do a quick read of the chapters while making a condensed version of the reading (sub-headers, bullet points) and a note of concepts I struggle with. Then, I will find videos to watch to help me with the concepts. They are normally less than 10 minutes long and help tremendously when I read the chapters or my notes again.
Note, these resources are not meant to replace the reading because of the following reasons:
– might not be Canadian-based
– might not be up-to-date
– even though many of them are high quality, it is still important to make your own judgement if there is a discrepancy
– these videos as a supplemental resource will help you learn and process the concepts easier

I hope this list of YouTube videos will be helpful to you for CPA Core 2. They either helped me with difficult concepts I struggled with understanding from just the reading or served as a quick refresher for concepts I learned before.
