29 CPA Exam study hours logged this week, un-romantic Valentines Day included.
My FAR exam is scheduled for this Friday. Am I ready this time around? Not sure. I definitely feel pretty good with a good amount of the material, but I still have trouble with a few of my weak spots. Deferred taxes, cash flow statements, non-monetary exchanges and foreign currency translation are my weakest areas. Im very lucky to be in a position at work to take time off with minimal notice or authorization required.
In addition to having off for the Presidents Day holiday, I have taken the rest of the week off as well. This will help me continue working on my timing, as well as these weak areas. None of these weak areas are concepts which I dont understand, I get all of them, but I have quite a bit of trouble getting the MCQs correct.
Ive spent my time over the last week going through the Wiley Problems and Solution book, reviewing the ones I get wrong time and time again. Ive also spent time going back through Deferred Tax and Cash Flow Statement materials in my Becker textbook. I have spent time drilling flashcards and re-reading notes that Ive written. Well, I can only continue doing more of the same and hope for the mix of questions to be skewed towards areas with which I am comfortable. Not sure if this is a good strategy or not, but its the strategy Im going with.
I ordered my BEC books this week, so I will be getting right into BEC, regardless of how FAR goes. I have wasted some time between tests in the past, but now that my clock has begun (I passed AUD at the end of last year), I have to be efficient and keep moving. Wish me luck. And best of luck to everyone sitting this week.
