It's usually when you are in the middle of REG that you find problems. I always take Business Law part easy and put emphasis on the Tax part-mainly because I am a number person and I like calculation than memorization. Plus doing problems with number makes more accomplished.
But I know this feeling is wrong. It resulted in a failure in AUD as it's purely memorization and I underestimated how far the problem can ask.But I do have confidence in REG thanks to my multiple tax internships and good tax professor from my senior year. So the individual tax part is not a surprise, and I don't have fear filling out tax forms anymore. I just want to know how weird the simulations will be like in real test. Based on my past test experiences, I had SIMs in FAR and AUD that differed a lot from Becker's.
I am going to take REG in May, and BEC in July. The review will be in a rush as the software will be expired in July+final exams in May+group project due in May+ starting new course in May for the summer. I also have an interview coming up this Friday for a summer internship-which might be a bitter-sweet commitment me if I do get this opportunity. Guys, how do you guys manage time? Peter Olinto passed both CPA and BAR, and I am always wondering how he did that.
To save time, I am even thinking about skipping lecture videos and go directly into the MCQs. I am not sure if it's a good idea. If I really have no options, I will do it.There is really no procrastination for me because I have to manage both worlds---my master program and CPA work.
After I passed the CPA exam, I am going to another graduate program. It will grant me several more month before my FAR expires. I know the new graduate program doesn't really require a CPA license, but I am taking the exam as the Becker materials were given to me as scholarship from Ascend.
Good luck everyone!
