The CPA Exam community & online study group to help you pass!
The last two days have gone way to fast. I am feeling a mixture of emotions ranging from excited to terrified. I have done everything that I had scheduled in preparation of the CPA exam, but (as always) would like a few extra hours to dedicate to TBS questions. Otherwise I am feeling pretty good about how prepared I am for the CPA test. Yesterday was another issue.
Yesterday, I could not answer any of the multiple choice questions correctly, I was second guessing myself on questions I knew and not reading the question all the way through. That is a problem I have when I start getting stressed. I rush and in the process I make mistakes and the more mistakes I make the worse it gets until a little snow flake turns into an avalanche. So I took a break, reviewed what was going on, regrouped and started again last night. Everything started to click and going well.
Today I actually watched Rogers CPA review course lectures on internal controls and sampling again. I was VERY weak in those areas and decided that watching those lectures would be very beneficial to the remaining study time I had. I really enjoy the way he teaches, and it makes it stick for me. Watching the lectures paid off; I am doing better in those sections now.
I am getting about an 85% - 95% on the MCQs and 80%-90% on the TBS with the software, so I am hoping that will get me through to at least a 75% for the test. Last time I was not doing as well on the TBS so I am hoping the improvement will reflect with an improvement for the CPA Exam.
I will let you know after the test how it is going. I have tonight and tomorrow morning to cram in a few extra hours to study, and to build my confidence in my test taking ability. Wish me luck.
