My CPA Journey

Posted on August 16, 2013 at 7:00pm 8 Comments

Came to USA after marriage on dependent visa. Joined at a CPA firm to voluntary the accounting and taxing work. Worked there for 18 months. CPA was not at all in my mind as my career. Was planning to learn software testing, take H1 visa and jump in to job which takes less time and less effort. It was that CPA for whom I worked suggested me that I should go for CPA certification as I am good in accounting. Then I thought about it not yet determined. But my husband determined that I should do…

Also wanted to ask you, if I could just use Wiley Test Bank CD for practice questions and not use the Wiley Text. Would you be able to give me a quick run down as to the Wiley Test CD alone - like how many MCQs are there n one section approximately and if the CD has an expiration date or something along those lines?

As AUD has some changes starting July 1st this year, should I buy only the new CD instead of used from Amazon or elsewhere - what would you suggest?

Hope I don't bother you too much. Any advice towards this CD purchase would help me decide if I need to supplement Becker. Thanks a bunch. Hema

Madhavilatha, thank you for your advise and recommendaton.  I am going through all the MCQ (wiley test bank).  I will have to re read and re-write and understand the writing part, this is not my first language so it difficult for me to write an essay.  I have Wednesday thru Monday to study.  Planning to study at least 10hr/day.  I'm nervous because this is my 3rst time.  Have taken BEC in 2005 & 2010..:((
