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…

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 back

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. 

My…

Delay

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…

Finally got results...

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…

2 days left before the test!!

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…

How to Achieve High Scores on Exams

One of the biggest factors to standardized testing that most seem to overlook is the simple fact that these standardized exams are, in fact, standardized.  That is, the exam is nationally or globally administered; it is the same across the whole country, or sometimes, across the whole world.  Given this fact, you should consider that all of the major review packages for said exam will cover essentially the same material.  Some may cover…

Hi!



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…
