The CPA Exam community & online study group to help you pass!
It's been several weeks since I took AUD last time, and I am swimming in the REG book. Lots have happened, and I have just got accepted by a graduate program with funds-which would extend my stay in US so I don't have to return to my country before my first CPA section gets expired.
REG is less painful than FAR and AUD since it's not purely calculation or memorization, but a combination of the two. According to my friend who just too REG, there will be more emphasis on the law part. This would give me great relief since I am in the middle of mid-term exams and research projects for professors. Your success comes when life starts to suck. I still remember the day I finished AUD at Penn Plaza, and another girl talked on her phone to her friend "Now I can have a normal life."
And the preparation process is also about guilty conscience. I read a blog recently about a tester's time management. Not having break because you feel guilty about wasting time is not right. Enjoy a reasonable amount of breaks, or hangouts with friends, especially workouts at gym is necessary to sharp you mind.
People say a habit is formed in 21 days.I always go over my notes at the end of my day to refresh my memory, and so far I found law part is more interesting and easier to memorize than the tax part.
