Day 2..

Today I worked really late - in fact until 11pm finishing two grant budgets for work.

I did get a chance to study for about an hour and a half. I will have to catch up tomorrow.

I am still working on the fair value detrmination piece. It has been years since I had to deal with the topic so I have to read all the study text as well as the videos.

Back at it tomorrow!

Today is day one of the 2013 CPA plan! ODAAT

I didnt sleep last night thinking about the CPA exam. Just starting is a bit overwhelming. I have to break it down to just today.


1. Cleaned off my desk

2. Updated my study software (Cpaexcel)

3. Downloaded some FAR audio study notes


OK, I made the first to get in an hour or so of study time this evening.

I can do this today. Today is what I have to worry about - I will not think about tomorrow just yet.

Result waiting time

I took REG last week and am waiting for Dec 7 for results. I don't understand why I can't figure out if I passed when I leave the test site. In college I knew that I passed when I left an exam, but with the CPA you don't have a clue.

I did everything Roger CPA suggested, I reviewed the standard lectures and did all the M/C twice, I also used the Cram course the few days before the test, then spent three days doing m/c and TBS.

The day of the test, I scored a 93 and an 86 on 20…
