Well, I'm studying for the Auditing section (in the Internal control section right now with all the different types of cycles) I only have 1 section bought so far, which is the Auditing Section from RogerCPA. I know it might be a bit more expensive in the long run, but I really wasn't sure what course to buy, so I settled with a section for Roger and I'll see how it goes. My question is.. does anyone use any (maybe relatively cheap) supplementary material to study?…Continue

Almost 10 days into studying for my first section (AUD) and I just thought about something. I really have no idea which order i'll be taking these sections haha. I decided to take Auditing first because of the changes that will happen to the section after June. I figure I can get that over with before the changes take place and any new material gets tested. I still actually have no idea when i'm going to actually take the exam because I'm waiting for my NTS, but my…Continue
Hi I am jose Perez and I just graduated from Montclair State University with a concentration in Accounting. I think one of the most challenging things about studying for the CPA so far is the time factor. we all have busy lives specially if you are working full time. I recently started studying for my first part for the CPA which is REG. In this case something that I am doing that is helping me out is actually to wake up two hours early every day to study. it was hard the first couple days…Continue
Good evening all, my name is Elliot Jakubowitz and I'm from Miami Florida. After 10 years as an equity trader for several firms i decided to go back to school and earn my accounting degree. After finishing a 4 year in course in less than 2 years i am in the midst of looking for a job and have just began (3 weeks ago) studying for the CPA exam. I have purchased just the 2013 FAR section of Yaeger's CPA review for a little under $600. Now i know its foolish of me to buy each section…Continue
Well, I've started studying for the first section i'm going to take (Auditing) and it's been a week now. Still haven't received my NTS, so hopefully that goes through without any hitches because i'm dying to schedule this exam so I can properly assess how much time I have left and what I should focus on the most. First week mostly went without any hitches. I really need to zero in and focus a lot more on the material in hand. It's very easy to get distracted…Continue
Hello CPA Exam Club Buddies!!
I hope that studying is going well for all of you! It has been a week since my AUD exam, and even though everyone tells me not to do this (including myself), it has been extremely difficult not to obsess over two things: the experience itself; and my resulting fate (success or failure).…Continue
Got my AUD score report today- 87! Extremely pumped, and twice as excited because I thought I was gonna find out tomorrow, so it was an awesome surprise! Crazy nervous opening that pdf in the email though D: Now I'm on to my second section, BEC, which I'm hoping I'll be ready for by the beginning of April because I want to fit in REG at the end of May so I have my summer before I start work to chip away at the behemoth that is FAR!
Anyone have info/tips for me on what to expect…Continue

Here's to finally being ready and having life situated enough to just live and study and pass these exams.

Step by step I will make progress and the journey will…Continue
I PASSED REG... I was SURE I had failed, I had no confidence WHAT SO EVER that I had passed that exam. I Didn't want to check the scores and was going to wait until after I took BEC on Thursday, but I broke down and checked it today. It took a minute for me to realize that it was actually a passing score.
ROGER IS GREAT (rogercpareview.com). I owe this passing grade to his review system, his study tips…Continue

Hello CPA Exam Club Buddies!
I hope that you are all doing well and that your studying is going GREAT! :) I am just finishing another evening of studying, and I can't believe that I only have one more day before I am sitting for the AUD Exam! Yikes!
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

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
Well, I am officially half way done with the CPA exam! I passed AUD and BEC. Just have REG and FAR left. As I approach my second busy season of the year (school's going to be back in session - and so will the school board audits), I am trying to find the best way to tackle these exams. I took my first busy season off from studying and…Continue
Believe it or not, this really is my first blog! Not that I have never tried writing one. I have tried to carve out bits and pieces of some interesting (at least I find them interesting) times in my life but have never actually opened them up to the world. But after reading some of the posts on this forum I finally am doing it! Wish me luck that I continue it.
I am finally home now. I have my FAR study plan in hand, study materials, internet access to Roger CPA Review course and a positive attitude. I am ready to start studying.
A positive attitude is essential. I had a plan to study FAR, but was not able to stick to it due to a family member’s health. I tried to study without my materials, but was not focused on the subject and determined that concentrating on family was…Continue
