Finding Your CPA Nemo

Posted on March 20, 2012 at 12:44pm 0 Comments

There was many of time where I felt like I just wanted this testing to be over, actually most of the time. I almost gave up so many times, because the stress of not passing, that taste of failure, that hearing of your family shock and knowing you didn’t pass will drain your bank account down further and extend that time clock of when you can finally close your books and say you’re a CPA. Fail, Fail, Pass, Fail, Pass, Pass…and hopefully in May another Pass will be coming my way. Each fail I…


Crashing Disappointment

Posted on September 22, 2011 at 12:48pm 1 Comment


Well I knew walking out of the FAR exam I probably didn't do so well. It's not that I didn't want to do well or even thought I wasn't prepared, but when my test easily could be seen as Moderate - Difficult - Moderate was a key sign I didn't do good on that 2nd test, and then the SIMS all but about 2 of them I hoped were practice I knew was a bad sign. And I was right.


Getting my FAR score back at even a lower score than I thought pretty much made me question…


How Things Change

Posted on August 25, 2011 at 11:00am 2 Comments

After a month and a half of studying, or 45 hours of Yeager videos and an additional 10 hours or more of reading plus problems – I was let go from my job. Well let go is a nice way of saying I was fired after 3 years of work. Now you’re probably thinking getting fired means I probably did something bad like steal from the company or I wasn’t very good at my job, or maybe I was studying during working hours. Well none of those applied to me. I was actually fired because I was miserable, I…


CPA Game Plan

Posted on May 15, 2011 at 2:20pm 2 Comments

I'm more writing this for myself than anything, but here's my CPA game plan.


Starting July 1st for the FAR exam. Since FAR is the one I'm most worried about I've given myself 13 weeks to study.

Here's how I plan to break down studying:

Weeks 1-8

1. Study Yaeger videos and Wiley text

2. Do portion of the MCQ


Time will be spent Monday - 4 hours (5-7pm, 8-10pm), Wednesday (5-7pm, 9-10pm), Saturday (9am-12pm or something like that),…

Thanks Andrea!  I am so glad this is over!  Book burning to follow...  I sent my application into the state yesterday - we don't have an ethics requirement here in PA.  Am hoping to have my license by tax season.  What a weight off.  I still don't think it's quite sunk in yet.  I am so thankful for this board - it was a great motivator for me.  Merry Christmas to us!!  We'll have to keep in touch.  Good luck to you..

Can you please give me the name of the book ASAP

Thanks Andrea!!    I think you are right about doing as many multiple choice questions as possible.  I took AUD today and think I did well on the multiple choice part, but the simulations were not that great!

thank you so much...

Thank you for your reply. But my problem is I did not study here. All my education is from India. So I am not familiar with the subject here. SO if I can information about the name and author of the book you guys use for Grad course for Cost/Managerial Accounting and Management Information systems, then I can use them as reference books. The only material I am purchasing for my study of BEC is Wiley Review Book and Wiley Test Bank CD. Can you please give me the information I have requested for ASAP

thank you Andrea for your valuable advice. I am not working, but I have a 2yr old kid at home, not going to day care or anywhere. SO the time I get is 4 to 5 hrs in the night to study. Thats how I am studying for AUD now . For AUD I bought Wilye CPA review book and WIley test bank CD. As you said after doing the MCQs in CD I feel some what confident now. And thanks for your advice once again, I will surely implement the plan you mentioned.

Thankyou Andrea, it was very helpful, I am trying to study both the tax portion and the Bus law portion together but the material is like never ending. Hopefully it will get better.
