My Journey to Become A CPA

I am taking the CPA to give myself a better chance of becoming hired after I graduate. Once I complete my BA in a few months, I will start studying towards the CPA exam. I enrolled myself in all CPA Exam Club study groups to give myself a heads up for the types of issues that others are facing as they swim against the waves of the CPA exam. So far, I’ve noticed REGs is the most active study group. Interestingly, REGs is the part of…

Assurance Levels Provided

Can someone please help me with assurance levels provided? I think I have it correct for Audits (positive), Compilations (none), Review (limited), Comfort letters (negative) and agreed on procedures (none) but what is the assurance level provided for a compliance audit? Since it is considered an audit is it positive as well? Any help is greatly appreciated.

No Longer Afraid of the Four-Headed Monster: The CPA Exam

Hello, I am a 30-something stay at home mom to three small and wonderful children 6, 4, 3. I began my CPA journey in the summer of 2012 when I receive my NTS from the state of Kentucky. I was nothing short of elated and immediately purchased study material from Yaeger for FAR and BEC. Shortly before receiving the material I began researching study tactics,…

Love and the CPA Exam


"Love is a word we typically reserve for areas of our personal life. We may use it to describe aspects of our professional life—such as loving our vocation, our colleagues or our clients. But, in all of my experiences with the Uniform CPA Exam—including my own arduous journey and coaching others on the path to licensure—I never once heard a person associate the word love…

The CPA Exam: The Super Bowl... Of Studying



Added by Roger Philipp on February 3, 2014 at 12:00pm — No Comments


I have high expectations - of myself and others.  I also have high standards and believe that the basics of life are vital to enjoying a full life - good sleep, whole food (no processed convenient junk), an active lifestyle and time to play and forge meaningful relationships.

Looking for Clues: Did I Pass?

You have just taken the CPA Exam.  Medium, Hard, Medium?  Medium, Hard, Hard? What does that mean?  Well, most CPA candidates feel the same way.  Drained and done.  But did you pass?  At the end of the day, no one really knows.  Some candidates leave the exam feeling like they crushed it, and then find out they didn’t.  That dreaded 74 appears in the score report.  And others…

Is Preparing for the CPA Exam Any Different than Busy Season?

Over the years in the accounting profession “busy” season has been both an attractor and detractor to those working in the “public accounting” arena.  With that said, what is busy season?  Is it that time of year that you put in 50, 60, 70 plus hours a week?  How is that different than other times of the year?  Are you only putting in 35-40…

The CPA M&M teddy bear

It's been since Dec 5th since I've looked at anything resembling  CPA exam study material.  I scheduled my Audit exam for Dec. 6th which meant postponing the start of our Xmas activities by no less than 4 weeks( Xmas begins the first week of Nov for me!) - a sacrifice that was…

FAR - It's the mindset...

Disclaimer: I still have two exams to go and only scored an 83 on the FAR exam. So by no means am I an expert on FAR. However, I can tell you this much - I would rather be studying FAR than Audit or Reg...
