Back from Prometric

I took REG this afternoon and it was an absolute MONSTER. It goes down as the most mind-blowingly frustrating exam experience I've had. Every tax question was hard. Complex question after question. It sucked so bad that I looked forward to the next business law question.

I didn't finish one tab of my last sim. I made sure to score easy points on the essay and research tab, though.

Either I'm an idiot or I was doing well and the difficulty of the problems were kicked up a notch (for the uninitiated, the better you do, the harder the questions get – but are worth more points). Probably a little bit of both.

I came out of the Exam humbled and feeling like a moron. On the other hand, whenever I have left and exam thinking “hey, that wasn't so bad after all…” – I failed.

Who knows.

I'm just glad that it's over – for now.

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 don't know how you can sit for 2 parts in one day. I would have freaked out. 15 years ago

Back in the "old days" (pre-2004, I believe) had to sit for all 4 sections at once :)

Of course, they didn't have the 150 rule or the current exam content.

Trust me - it's not bad at all taking 2 sections in a day. I was tired, but I could have done it again the next day as well. It's doable, definitely.

The four sections at once wasn't so bad actually !
