I took this failure HARD. It took me longer to get back to studying than it normally does. I was SO CLOSE. But I finally got back on track. I waited for my score to come out to determine if I was going to re-study for BEC or start studying FAR.
I took my son to daycare first thing in the morning, as I wanted to use all the time I could to work multiple choice (MC) questions. I heard that traffic was backed up for MILES all over town, there was a backup to get home and I had not brought my books with me. I decided to stop at a restaurant and listen to Roger CPA Review lectures on my droid phone while I waited, instead of sitting in traffic and getting stressed out.
When the traffic finally died down (3 hours later), I was…Continue

I am happy to say that I have kept to my study guide. I built in an "catch up day" each week and used it not just to catch up, but for down time as well. I was able to get to bed at 8pm instead of 2am one night. That was such a great night. I am really excited that I will have 4 days to spend just on MC/TBS and review of material marked that I am weak.
I did give up on writing notes on every chapter. I was spending over an hour, and all I was doing was copying the information from…Continue

Things seem to be going better this time around. Today, I scheduled REG (Feb 7th), and BEC (Feb 28). Some other things have come up in my life, but I am going to use them to focus myself and not let them distract me from my studies.
I am following Roger Phillipp (Roger CPA Review) advice. I am doing all the homework twice before I move onto the next section, and completing the TBS. It seems like it is easier for…Continue
I had to have some time to refocus and regroup my life. I did not pass REG and it crushed me. I did the suggested studying. Scored high on the homework and thought I down when I walked in the test center, but as my last blog shows, I didn't know how I did after the test. When the results came out, I was devastated. I didn't even make a 70, what was up with that.
So, on the advise of my husband, I took a break to evaluate what was going on, and how I can pass and become a…Continue
It really has been a long time since I have posted. I didn't pass Far, but that didn't keep me down. Even before the grades came out I started studying for REG.
I just finished Roger CPA for REG and have done the homework twice, although I haven't done the TBS yet. I saved them for last. My test is scheduled for Friday, so I still have 3 full days (and what is left of today) to study.

My decision to become a CPA has proven to be one of the best I’ve ever made. All the hard work, sacrifice, and sweat I put into passing the CPA exam seems trivial compared to the many benefits its produced. It has…Continue

I was hoping to already be done watching the FAR section of Roger's lectures, but life got in the way. I was planning on watching and taking notes on all the lectures then go back and watch them again when I get a back home to my study materials.
But as we all know, great plans will be defeated, if you do not able to commit to them, and I cannot right now. Life throws curve balls and you have to be able deal with…Continue

It has been a while since I have posted. I took a break from studying and went on vacation. I have since been indefinitely delayed in my return to home, due to a sick family member in Alabama.
I have decided to try and study while here. I am glad I am using Roger, because I can study anywhere there is…Continue

I cannot believe that my score took so long to post on NASBA. I kept checking all morning, but I had to leave for an appointment at 10:45 am. I was able to check e-mail but not check NASBA for the score until after 7 pm. I was home before that, but wanted to eat, because if I didn’t pass, I knew I wouldn’t eat for a while. After dinner, I checked my score and …… I passed.
My score was lower than expected. I thought it would have been in the 90’s, but as long as it was 75 or…Continue

Price elasticity of demand is a concept that is tested on the Business Environment and Concepts (BEC) exam and it's one that can be rather tricky. The price elasticity of demand is the measure of how sensitive demand is to a change in price. Like many of the concepts on the BEC CPA exam, it is important to know the formula and how to interpret the results. Let's go ahead and look at the two formulas that you may use to calculate price elasticity of demand. …Continue

Remember Pavlov’s dog? Ivan Pavlov, a Russian physiologist who studied classical conditioning, trained a dog to salivate when hearing the sound of a bell. This response came after repeatedly giving the dog food immediately after ringing a bell.
The point I’d like to make today is that we often operate the same way. Certain activities elicit certain responses if we train ourselves…Continue

The countdown has started. I have 2 days before my CPA test. I am a little concerned that I am too calm. I am not in a panic or frantically trying to cram everything in. I believe it is because I stayed on top of my schedule and know where I am in the schedule at all times.
If you recall I was behind by 12 hours the last time I blogged with 7 study days left. I am now ahead of my schedule. I was able to employ the help of family to watch my son, so that I could get that extra…Continue

As David said in another blog F, A, R, B are the recommended order of taking the examines.
I have been out of undergrad for 20 years. I finished my executive MBA in June, 2011. I needed two more accounting classes so I took them in fall (audit and tax). As a preparation for the CPA exam I took the CMA exam (pass rate is even lower than CPA between 40% exam 1 and 36% exam 2) and passed on both on my first try (helps to be a finance grad). So I decided to register…Continue
