A little behind…

It has been tough to drudge up the motivation to jump back into REG and my goal of taking the REG exam 7/7 might be a bit optimistic now. However, I am into disc 2 of Yaeger‘s 9 disc REG set and am soaking up Module 33 – Individual Income Tax and am strengthening what were previously weak areas.

As I follow Phil and take notes in the margins, highlight lines, and flip back and forth between the text and questions, my marked-up, torn-up Wiley book will likely resemble gang violence come mid-July.

I am still targeting 7/7, will not schedule my exam until I know that I will be ready on exam day. My modest study goal is 2.5 hours a day on the weekdays and 4 hours on Sat/Sunday.

Thanks for reading.

I knew coming out of the exam that I had passed, but I didn’t expect this. I’m paranoid so I’m whiting out my info until I have my certificate in hand. Thank you GOD. Update: I got my paper confirmation on September 22 – a timely six days after my score appeared online.

REG: Not So Bad (if you study)

Today’s testing experience was a great success, I think. I was better prepared than I’ve been for any section I’ve taken (and passed) and I felt like I knew most of the answers – even the exception to the exception questions where the obvious answer was wrong. There were a couple of multiple choice that […]

Ready for REG?

I have put in about 30 hours of studying since Sunday night. I had the good fortune of work being extremely “slow” this week for me, so guess who sat at his desk and studied all day Mon-Wed? While going through Yaeger‘s DVD course, I filled a legal pad with notes. Starting Monday, I re-wrote […]

REG Update

Although I’ve scored two consecutive 74s on Regulation and own Yaeger‘s cram DVD (I didn’t use it on my last attempt aside from Corps because I was swamped with BEC and up against the deadline or I lost FAR), I made a deal with myself that I would slow down and go back through REG […]

I'm new to reading this, I just started CPA prep myself with Gleim. I'm pondering blogging my progress as well... do you find it's doing a good job at keeping you motivated?

Good luck!

"do you find it's doing a good job at keeping you motivated?"

Motivated? Maybe a little...oddly enough it helps keep me accountable (as if my wife doesn't do a good enough job of that already) :)

Push yourself. You are very inspiring in more ways than one. The pleasure of victory will make it all worth it. Be encouraged.

I really understand what you are going through. I have taken various parts but have only passed Reg! I did well in college, but the amount of material required here is unbelievable. I have a small child at home, and studying is definitley not what I want to be doing. I am taking BEC and AUD the first week of July, using Becker. I hope that you do well July 7th!!
