@bnrhilton, thank you so much for sharing your stories, weaknesses & strengths. I understand how a change in roles and job functions can derail one from passing CPA test, I faced this challenge during my first AUD attempt, moved from ATL as Admin Mgr to Charlotte into a new role as a financial analyst. It's a different culture and different from I have been doing. I did not make my AUD first attempt due to this situation, gave it a second try and still fell short. I messed up my study strategy because I have already registered for FAR so I switched to studying FAR and left AUD. FAR seems like sure bet for me but did not know what happened when I got to the prometrice, seemed everything i knew vanished. My score performance report showed that I was weak in all parts. Yes, i made these two most wonderful people(Wife & unborn daughter) in my life to be my center of concentration and to neglect others. Like you said, I have to teach my daughter how not to QUIT because Dad gave it all and achieve all his goals.
I am focusing on FAR right now because it's still fresh in mind then I will revisit AUD later after.
Thanks once again for your heart lifting piece, your testimonies are such soothing relief to my daunted spirit.
@ Stay_Positive, yeah CPA test makes one look like an idiot but deep inside of me. I know I am not. I have copied and pasted all your suggestions and advices, will make it my reference point when I am confused about what I should do. Yeah, I realized CPA is not how smart you are because I found all the tests I have attempted to be less tougher compared to how hard I have prepared. I am learning the tricks day by day, I am using different ways to answer the MCQ, for instance start from looking at the last option instead of the first, sometimes I got carried away, chose the first option that makes sense to me but later realized that another better option is beneath my choice.
Thanks for your ocntribution as well
@ CPA4birthdaypresent, sometimes we associate ourselves with people that are so content with their present situation and do not thrive to try something greater than their present level so when they see you trying and fell short. They mock you. I have experienced this and was so embittered. Like you said, they are not worth your friend so I drop them and focus my mind on my goals. Yes, the motivation of others is paramount to trying again after one has failed so many times. I am religious and this is a time I found the limit to my strength and not depend on my ability alone. Yes, God saw me through many trying times and I know he will help me even when I have done all I can. He will help me to STAND and make CPA that poses itself as a monster a mere plain. Thank you guys for your moral supports. Together we will make 2013 counts and move to anew phase of my lifes.
I will study like never before, be smart in answering my question, focus on the tricky parts of the material e.g bond, governmnt accounting & leases
