CPA Exam Community | CPA Exam Review & Discounts
I am currently tentatively planning to take BEC (1st week of July 2013) and REG (last week of Aug 2013) part of the CPA exam.
That said, I graduated with Acct'g degree 15+years ago. I have not touch acct'g since graduation. However, I have been working in Finance/Banking industry.
My thinking was to slowly get back into accounting and the CPA exam. Hopefully, if I can start out with a sucess in either part, it will give me confidence to tackle the rest of the…Continue

I have already taken and passed the bar exam in more than one state, and now I’m taking the CPA exams. Having always been good at numbers (especially…Continue

Three down, one left to pass.
Not knowing these results caused a slack on studying for FAR. Thankfully I build in some down time in my study schedule for an event, and am not too far behind schedule.
Now that I have passed BEC, I am motivated to get back on schedule and tough it out for this last exam.

Lets face it. A lot of us are procrastinators and like to do things in the very end. Although it worked for a lot of us in school and maybe even college, the CPA exam is a totally different beast in this regards. Procrastination is just a terrible thing to do with regards to all 4 sections of the CPA exam. I just want to emphasize a few points as to why it's bad…Continue
This is more geared towards the people who have already taken an exam, but anyone is welcome to participate. I still have a few days left until I take my first exam and this is mostly a question which will probably vary depending on your situation. What do you do the last day before the exam? Do you try to cram all the material and do a review? Do you just take a practice exam or…Continue

Some of these are tactics you can use on the multiple choice questions and some of these are meant to dispel some of the bad advice that is out there. The foundation of your MCQ strategy should be knowing the material well.
Presuming you are well-prepared heading into the exam, the tactics below will help you get…Continue

I am currently studying for AUD again. I plan to take the exam on May 20th. 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…Continue

As I was going through the IT section of auditing, I had a question for myself and for other people if they want to answer. What made you interested in accounting and why did you choose it as a profession? I actually grew around computers and IT in general, so I've actually been very interested in that side of the…Continue
I'm using Lamber's to study BEC and have failed it twice! I read how everyone states BEC is the easy one of the four, but I have to beg to differ. Part of the issue is that I waited to take CPA exam after raising kids, 18 years later, here we are. Not a very good start! Finding time to study is difficult. Still have a 13 year old at home and an 18 year off to A&M in the fall. After spending so much money on this program, not sure what to do at this point! I will have to pay to…Continue

Well today is one of those days for me and maybe I shouldn't be writing a blog post on such a topic but I can't imagine…Continue
Trying to organize myself - have two big finals in about 1 1/2 weeks!
Adv Forensic Accounting - holding a 99% in the class with 2 papers and a large final and this class will finally be over. Enjoyed more than I thought I would. But if I hear anything more about Enron I'm going to scream.
Adv Accounting - holding about 97% only because of the stupid discussion boards. Enjoyed working on the problems more.
Adv Corporate Taxation - love this class!! 99%!!! Feel bad when I…Continue

When I took the BEC portion of the CPA exam, it was important to budget your time for answering questions. When looking at the questions, look at what they are asking for. You might get a paragraph of information that has no relevance to the question at hand. Skip right to the question first (last sentence) then read the rest of it. This can help budget your time better when you are studying and taking the exam.
Good luck to all!
(still trying to get my…Continue

Well, here I am among all you brilliant CPA Candidates....it is one of many hurdles to the CPA finish line.
In my case, I'm in my 50s starting a second career after 25 years in high-tech. Around 2004, I went back to school at night and completed half of the requirements mostly in General Business and considering getting a masters in business finally. However, it couldn't surpass the extensive experience I had in marketing, business development, and sales. When I again went back to…Continue
