Hi there everyone!
I thought that I would finally send in my overdue post and
give an update with the comings and goings in my little bean counter
world. I have made some progress since my last entry. I am finished
with Section 4 and have moved on to studying Depreciation, Estates and Trusts in Section 5. I am continuing to feel relief at the lack of computation problems. Now that Corporate, Partnership and Individual tax are behind me, I feel like my brain is unclenching a little.
I’m finding this new area surprisingly easy to study. It’s amazing how much a bit of humor helps with the retention of the DRY and BORING content that must be memorized for the CPA exam. Roger was at his finest in the video in the Estates and Trusts Section. He cemented the concepts by discussing a fictitious scenario involving the demise of Hugh Hefner and the inheritance of his estate by his previous squeezes…Holly, Bridget and Kendra. I actually laughed a bit during that segment. I’ve got the concepts down. Thanks Roger! (Now will you please do one of your special on line classes on AMT?) AMT is a topic that definitely needs a bit of humor to remember! Roger CPA Review
is THE program for learning and retaining CPA exam concepts.
I might have mentioned previously that I decided to get serious about my level of fitness, right about the time that I wanted to crawl under a rock and stay there, after making a 74 on FAR. I started working out with a trainer three times a week. He’s a winning fitness competitor and a drill sergeant in the military, with a level of muscularity that is
pretty intimidating to the average gym goer. I told him last week that I would find a way to work him into my next blog because I achieved a personal best, by lifting 255 pounds, doing squats on the Smith Machine, during our last workout. Woo Hoo!
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger …right? Of course, all of you have heard me say that before. I am reveling in my newfound strength and am excited to be pushed beyond the limits I set for myself. I love the challenge of having a goal that is physical rather than mental. I can’t wait to get this exam behind me so that I can see what I can do when I have the stress and time consumption of the CPA Exam off of my plate.
I’ve kept my post a bit short this week because… well….. my brains are scrambled! I’m going to turn in early, grab the remote and reward myself for my study and work efforts with a night off, so that I will awake rested and refreshed tomorrow.
Happy Studying Everyone.
