Problems & Saving Time: In the Middle of REG

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!

I friend of my have Becker 2012, have problem with his computer.... Because the computer change the date...... but his look when the computer change the date, the program have more days or less days. For example today is 4/22/2013, he had 20 day left to expiration. But if he change the date for 3/22/2013, he had 50 days.

Hi, wich software do you have???????????

For Regulation is a Good Idea skip the lecture, take your notes in each Mcs, I pass the Reg exam like this. 1. I did 200 Mcs per day, and take note for each question( 2 hour before work, 2 hour after work, and 1/2 hour for review my notes..... 2.Weekend without social life( I study 8 hours each day). 3.  For me regulation have two part, Tax and Law section.  The tax section you can do the Mcs, but the law section you have to read, minimum a review course or flash card, because some terms are complicated. I think you can do it, but your need adjust your time 80/.
