I have wanted the designation of CPA for a very long time. I realize that if I had made very different decisions a long time ago, I may have had it and it would have been a lot easier. But life happens and it seems to get in the way... High school and my one lone college semester was a very long time ago. I got married, moved a few times, and had children. I went back to college on a part time basis and slowly began taking a full time load as my youngest began school. I received my…Continue

Three down, one left to pass.
Not knowing these results caused a slack on studying for FAR. Thankfully I build in some down time in my study schedule for an event, and am not too far behind schedule.
Now that I have passed BEC, I am motivated to get back on schedule and tough it out for this last exam.

I am currently studying for AUD again. I plan to take the exam on May 20th. (Edit: rescheduled for August 24th) I have paid for my notice to schedule and I will need to pay my fee once that comes and schedule the exam. I will also need to request time off work!
I had stopped studying for the exam after the end of November when I got a 68 on BEC. My only weakness in taking these exams is time. I do not have difficulty with any of the material (unless you count deferred…Continue
Taking a little break from studying Auditing for the CPA Exam because i'm writing out this blog post. I was just thinking of a few tips that might help out some people while studying for this section. First thing I thought of was the simulations. You definitely should leave a good amount of time to do these simulations. There are 7 Task-based simulations, 6 of them are graded, and 1 is on research. I would HIGHLY recommend you practice the research question on the AICPA website or…Continue

So have you had something irritating told to you like the blog title? I’m pretty sure you have your own irritations so I won’t create a list of them but rather have advice on how to deal with them. The self-restraint it takes to not slam people in the face with the very heavy Wiley FAR book can definitely drain some energy. The CPA journey is already difficult without these irritations so this only adds fuel to the fire. How then to deal with these types of comments?
Well one way is…Continue

I have given myself 8 weeks to study for BEC, which will be my third attempt. The first time I didn’t have enough time to review. In my second attempt, I let little things trip me up in the exam and didn’t execute time management well, which led to leaving a WC completely bank. I scored in the mid 60s in both attempts so I’m somewhat close.
Having committed egregious errors in my first two attempts, I know not to repeat them. With this in mind, I will nail down the details to…Continue
1. NTS Scheduling - Suppose that you will test at the end of May 31st and have 90 days from April 1st to take the exam. You receive the bad news that you failed the section on June 10th. After recovering from defeat you gather yourself and reschedule the exam. Well there might be a problem. Since your NTS doesn’t expire until the end of June, you cant reschedule until then. Depending on…Continue

The title succinctly describes BEC for me. After all, the topics are all over the place and unrelated. As an example, we have IT, corporate governance, economics, and cost accounting. All of these items are unrelated. In addition, the lack of SIMS in BEC almost reassures us that no one subject will be delved into deeply. However, we still need to put the time and effort into the exam.
So how then do we study for BEC? The best answer I can come up with is to study for it like the rest…Continue

I have come around to telling myself that I will pass and that I will score in the 80s. I'm realistic and not getting down on my old over-achiever persona that would rock out a 95 to 100 on an exam because now I have other responsibilities and obligations that are dear to me.
Now that I've begun to say this, I am trying to keep a positive attitude and talk about my joys. I actually look forward to waking up at 4am every morning to get 3 hours of quiet study time in. I never…Continue
