I took my son to daycare first thing in the morning, as I wanted to use all the time I could to work multiple choice (MC) questions. I heard that traffic was backed up for MILES all over town, there was a backup to get home and I had not brought my books with me. I decided to stop at a restaurant and listen to Roger CPA Review lectures on my droid phone while I waited, instead of sitting in traffic and getting stressed out.
When the traffic finally died down (3 hours later), I was…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
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…Continue
It really has been a long time since I have posted. I didn't pass Far, but that didn't keep me down. Even before the grades came out I started studying for REG.
I just finished Roger CPA for REG and have done the homework twice, although I haven't done the TBS yet. I saved them for last. My test is scheduled for Friday, so I still have 3 full days (and what is left of today) to study.

I was hoping to already be done watching the FAR section of Roger's lectures, but life got in the way. I was planning on watching and taking notes on all the lectures then go back and watch them again when I get a back home to my study materials.
But as we all know, great plans will be defeated, if you do not able to commit to them, and I cannot right now. Life throws curve balls and you have to be able deal with…Continue

I cannot believe that my score took so long to post on NASBA. I kept checking all morning, but I had to leave for an appointment at 10:45 am. I was able to check e-mail but not check NASBA for the score until after 7 pm. I was home before that, but wanted to eat, because if I didn’t pass, I knew I wouldn’t eat for a while. After dinner, I checked my score and …… I passed.
My score was lower than expected. I thought it would have been in the 90’s, but as long as it was 75 or…Continue

The countdown has started. I have 2 days before my CPA test. I am a little concerned that I am too calm. I am not in a panic or frantically trying to cram everything in. I believe it is because I stayed on top of my schedule and know where I am in the schedule at all times.
If you recall I was behind by 12 hours the last time I blogged with 7 study days left. I am now ahead of my schedule. I was able to employ the help of family to watch my son, so that I could get that extra…Continue

My name is Dave. I finished my Bachelor's degree in Accounting two weeks ago, and I plan to start my MS in Accounting in August. In the mean time, I hope to take and complete the CPA exam. This is my story. :)
I have been reading up on CPA exam review courses to see what would suit me best. I will have about 7 months total, so I want to do this right the first time! After getting sticker shock from what my friend paid for Becker, I couldn't help…
