Hello All. Lets get right to the progress. I had a bit of a weird schedule this week, because Im trying to jam as much studying in as possible.
On Saturday, I hit the library from noon to 5pm, came home for dinner and some time with the family and then went back to the library from 8pm-11pm, so a total of 8 hours. Sunday was Halloween, so I hit the library early and logged 4.5 hours in the morning, went to church with the family at 1pm and then trick or treating with my girls in the early afternoon. I did some reading in the late evening too, but dont think it was long enough or quality enough to log.
Then on Monday, I left work a little early and ended up logging 4 hours in the library. Tuesday was jam packed. Up early to vote before work, then cocktails and hors doeuvres after work with a group of colleagues that are in town for our quarterly managers conference this week (not an optional event). And last but certainly not least, home to my wife for a little anniversary celebration. Got home by 9:00pm, we didnt do anything too special, just spent some quiet time together. Tell me thats not a supportive spouse? Ive made reservations the weekend after I take the Audit exam to take her to dinner at the place where we got engaged. Ladies, does that score me any points??? I hope so. Anyway, all that amounts to no studying on Tuesday.
I logged 3 hours in the library on Wednesday and then 8 hours in the library on Thursday (I took the day off from work, as its getting close and Im getting nervous).
My progress this week has been reviewing chapters 1-3 in Becker CPA Review, redoing homework and supplemental questions. Internal Control is a little confusing, but luckily Tim Gearty says its only 12-18%. Im planning to re-write the Unqualified Opinion, compilation and review letters tomorrow, so I can begin memorizing them word for word, as so many bloggers have suggested. I havent been able to study during lunch as I planned, but maybe Ill be able to re-write these letters while Im at work tomorrow.
Im going to do 3-4 hours every day during the upcoming week, so will be trying to skip out of work a little early this week, whenever possible. Wish me luck and please post any last minute advice you may have for me. Thanks.
