Still on target - 7 days before my test (2/7/2013)

I am happy to say that I have kept to my study guide.  I built in an "catch up day" each week and used it not just to catch up, but for down time as well.  I was able to get to bed at 8pm instead of 2am one night. That was such a great night. I am really excited that I will have 4 days to spend just on MC/TBS and review of material marked that I am weak.

I did give up on writing notes on every chapter.  I was spending over an hour, and all I was doing was copying the information from…

Staying on target

Things seem to be going better this time around.  Today, I scheduled REG (Feb 7th), and BEC (Feb 28).  Some other things have come up in my life, but I am going to use them to focus myself and not let them distract me from my studies.  

I am following Roger Phillipp (Roger CPA Review) advice.  I am doing all the homework twice before I move onto the next section, and completing the TBS. It seems like it is easier for…

On course, but cautious

Last week was successful in terms of covering the material I have set out for... this week I have planned to study Planning Activities and Internal Control Concepts and Standards. Although I have been scoring high in the 'review tests', I don't want to relax as the SIMs are killers. As others have consistently pointed out: do well with the MCQs but don't neglet SIMs. During the last AUD exam, I had a couple of SIMs dealing with inventory 'auditing' at warehouse... which were very difficult…

On and Off

I seem to be falling into a pattern, not sure if I like it...I'll have a day where I work 9-12 hours, basically the entire day, on my Becker review--and then the next day I'll barely be able to motivate myself to do 2 hours.  Which means that the following day I feel behind and work like crazy and perpetuate the cycle -.-

Anyone have some good tips on making and maintaining a steady schedule?  I'd rather work 5-6 hours a day than 10 one day, 2 the next!

Regrouping after Failing REG

I had to have some time to refocus and regroup my life.  I did not pass REG and it crushed me.  I did the suggested studying.  Scored high on the homework and thought I down when I walked in the test center, but as my last blog shows, I didn't know how I did after the test.  When the results came out, I was devastated.  I didn't even make a 70, what was up with that.  

So, on the advise of my husband, I took a break to evaluate what was going on, and how I can pass and become a…

I'm so frustrated with my studies... to the point I have hit the dreaded "WALL". I need to become motivated again, but it's hard as I'm flying SOLO in this endeavour.  I'm still wrestling with AUD. This thing is UnREAL. Is there's anyone willing to partner with me studying? Besides trading CPA studyies war stories, we can coordinate efforts and motivate each other in this journey. I have CPAEXCEL and 2012 Wiley Book at my disposal. I'm in Miami, FL.

What Section of the CPA Exam to Take First and Why

The CPA exam is a marathon, not a sprint. Many people say to take the most difficult section first because once you get that one over with it will be smooth sailing from there.  This strategy may work for some but there are a few things you should know before jumping on that bandwagon that are very important.  Below I will explain why this logic is…
