This is from the CPA Exam Survival Guide, which is a free download to all Another71 readers. I know that right now is a miserable time and it is easy to start believing thoughts that simply are not true. Thoughts like you’re not smart enough to pass, accounting isn’t for you, the AICPA hates you and does not want you in the profession, etc. I personally felt all those emotions and had those thoughts going through my head as well.

A little backstory… Back in the day – when I was studying for the CPA Exam (and we walked up hill both ways in the snow to the prometric testing center…all of that…), the CPA Review landscape looked a lot different than it does now. There were what I would call “The Big 4” of CPA Review courses…and one of those courses was Bisk CPA Review. It had been around forever and had the legendary instructor Bob Monette.
