The CPA Exam community & online study group to help you pass!
I am currently studying for AUD again. I plan to take the exam on May 20th. (Edit: rescheduled for August 24th) I have paid for my notice to schedule and I will need to pay my fee once that comes and schedule the exam. I will also need to request time off work!
I had stopped studying for the exam after the end of November when I got a 68 on BEC. My only weakness in taking these exams is time. I do not have difficulty with any of the material (unless you count deferred taxes!) My issue is where do I find the time in a 24 hour day?! I have 5 kids and a full time job, so it is very difficult for me to study. Just last night my 17 year old was playing Brain Quest with my 10 year old and my 19 year old decided she was going to joke around with her and answer the questions before the 10 year old could. Needless to say they got rowdy during my study time. So I went to my room (which I don’t like to do because bedroom = SLEEP) and sat on my bed to read and take notes. Sure enough, after about 20 minutes I was dozing off. So I got up and drank some water to refresh myself and came back for another attempt. I made it another 30 minutes before I was really sleepy and decided to call it a night. This is why I like to study at the kitchen table from 8-10PM and my kids are usually off playing Minecraft or something so they don’t really bother me. But last night was not one of those nights.
Tonight I have a CPA dinner to attend from 5:30 to 9PM so I highly doubt I will be studying. On the 26th, month end begins at work and we have to stay later to close the month. So I will probably stay late the 26th, 29th, and 30th. Hopefully I will not be too tired to fit in at least one hour of study time when I get home. And HOPEFULLY (just a small prayer) my kids will PICK UP AFTER THEMSELVES and I won’t have too many chores awaiting me! :)
My children start an art class on Saturday. It is from 9-1PM, so I hope to drop them off and find a quiet Starbucks or fast food place to just utilize those hours to study! This will be great! Happy studying!
