The CPA Exam community & online study group to help you pass!
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
Wow, has it been a month since my last post already?! Time sure has flown... I better start my 2012 Christmas list soon! ;)
So as the title indicates, I expect to break the 100-hour studying mark for FAR tonight. My FAR exam is officially scheduled for Monday, Feb 27th at 9:00AM (wish me luck!). I have mostly stuck to the studying plan outlined in previous posts, with some very minor variations. I began my studies on Saturday, January 7th, so it has been exactly…Continue
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…Continue

Late last week and into this past weekend I played some email tag with Bonni and Sonny over at Yaeger CPA Review. Sonny advised me that the recommended order of exams is F A R B, and that students will, on average, study for the following number of hours per section:…
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…
