Club 75 Candidate Bloggers

Because of the Holidays and various family emergencies, I find myself a week behind on my study plan. Right now, I really wish I chose to take any other test than FAR. I hate bonds and pensions. This material really should not be as difficult as I am making it out to be, but for some reason, it doesn’t want to stick. During my master’s program, I experienced, for the first time, a final exam where I completely blanked out. I couldn’t remember my name, or anything else for that matter. The class was Intermediate Accounting and covered much of the material I see in FAR. Just listening to the Roger CPA Review lectures, I flash back and begin to panic all over

Megan is a weekly Another71 Facebook blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam. The theme of the week has not been mustard, but catch-up! I realized I was about eight lessons behind where I wanted to be coming out of the holidays. That sounds like a lot, but I’m trying not to think about it. I’m doing my best to devote all the time I possibly can to getting back on track. This weekend was nicely balanced. I was pleased that I got enough sleep to finally conquer the cold I’ve been battling since New Year’s Eve while also completing over two lessons of REG with Roger CPA Review between Friday and Saturday. I even squeezed in time with my boyfriend AND celebrated my brother’s birthday. Although I often sacrifice social gatherings in order to study, birthdays require attendance! I found myself looking for a comfortable and

Kim is a weekly Another71 Facebook blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam. I hope that 2012 has started off well for all of you! After finally getting past so many distractions during the holidays, it feels really good to get back into my normal study routine. I’m working through my FAR study materials and working as many MCQs as I can get my hands on. But even with this said, it still feels like I’m moving at a snail’s pace when I look at all the material that I have left to cover before February 29th. My observation is that it takes me at least two and a half hours to watch a one hour lecture video because I stop and start the video a lot to take notes. Do any of you find this to be true? Or if you know of any shortcuts or

I want to be watching the Saint’s game right now, but instead I’m working property transaction simulations. But the truth is I am a football jinx. If I watch the game, then the team I want to win will lose. So I do my part for my state, the Saints and the LSU Tigers, and I don’t watch. It kills me to miss the games, but Louisiana has had its fair share of bad luck in the past few years. Between hurricanes, droughts and oil spills, it’s time we had something good. Last year was probably one of the worst years of my life. I lost my dad, my health went down the drain, and I lost my FAR score. But this
