Part One:

 

This week, we'll be taking a look at ten common mistakes first-year CPAs make and how to avoid them. Since ten points would make for a fairly long blog, we're dividing them up into a two-part series.

Most Important thing to pass the CPA exam

I have had several people ask me what I think the most thing was to passing the CPA Exam.

The utmost important thing you can do is practice the Multiple Choice Questions (MC) and the Task Based Simulations (TBS).  

I used Roger CPA review and he stressed doing the MC and TBS at least 2 to 3 times.  I agree and cannot stress that enough.

When practicing the questions, make sure to read all the answers, even the incorrect ones.  When you KNOW the reason each is wrong as…

Nice to not have to study

I thought time flew when I was studying.  I was wrong, it is going faster now.  It has been 10 days since my last blog, and I thought it was just yesterday.

When I was studying, I followed Roger CPA Review's study planner with a few modifications.  I kept track of time and had to schedule time off from studying if I wanted down time. Now that I don't have to study and not keeping a schedule, time seems to be flying by.

Passed FAR and now I'm DONE

I can't believe that I passed all 4 sections of the CPA Exam.  I am still in shock.  I received my scores over a week ago, and I still feel amazed that this journey is over.

I actually cried with pure JOY when I saw the scores and realized I don't have to study anymore. I enjoyed watching Roger sing TT, BPO, 75 or 90 but he can't compete with my son asking me to play with him, and being able to (Sorry Roger).

I now have to research what else is…

BEC: Price Elasticity of Demand

Price elasticity of demand is a concept that is tested on the Business Environment and Concepts (BEC) exam and it's one that can be rather tricky.

Like many of the concepts on the BEC CPA exam, it is important to know the formula and how to interpret the results. Let's go ahead and look at the two formulas that you may use to calculate price elasticity of demand.

Pavlov's Dog and the CPA Exam

Remember Pavlov’s dog? Ivan Pavlov, a Russian physiologist who studied classical conditioning, trained a dog to salivate when hearing the sound of a bell. This response came after repeatedly giving the dog food immediately after ringing a bell.

The point I’d like to make today is that we often operate the same way. Certain activities elicit certain responses if we train ourselves…

Don't Read ! Ask !

Earlier in my preparation I used to sit and read and read and read...

When I am trying to answer the questions now , I find some questions

confusing . It only means I didn't grasp that particular point.

Memorizing is all together different , but if we don't understand what

we are reading it will not give any kind of remembrance and it will not

help us to answer the questions.....



Rest of the post is… Continue
