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.

Congrats on acceptance into grad program and balancing the CPA exam with your other endeavors.  I'm taking REG in April as well and am starting to get into the law portion.  My scores were similar on FAR and AUD, so I'm not sure if I'm better at memorization or calculation.  The AUD section was much less stressful than FAR when preparing, so maybe reading/memorization is my strength.  So is BEC all calculation?  I guess that we will find out once we take this exam and move on to the next.  Good luck with your studies!

Hi Christine...your friend is correct about their being more emphasis on the Law part but this is true for the multiple choice questions.  The SIMS will mostly be in taxation.  At least this is the experience most people come across, myself included. Do not underestimate the tax part of REG!  Good luck in your CPA journey :).
