Week 11:

Happy New Year to everyone. I don’t think it’s a secret to know what my new years resolution is. Suffice to say it’s been hard studying these past few weeks, but I’ve gotten some time in, some days more than others, but with the holidays now over, it’s time focus back on what’s important. I did build a bit of extra time into my schedule to account for what I’d figure would be a holiday slowdown, so I’m not really far off where I want to be.

I’ve changed up my study strategy for the CPA Exam. I plan on focusing on each chapter until I feel I have mastered the concepts, instead of moving on when I’ve completed the material. I learned the hard way that it’s easier to learn one chapter at a time, instead of learning it all at once if that makes sense.

This time around and from now on going forward, I’m going to do every 2011 Wiley CPA question at least once.

I’ve moved past Corporate Governance, and am now on IT. Corporate Governance wasn’t a bad chapter, reminded me of business classes I took back in college. I’m a little familiar with some IT terms, so I had a bit of a head start, but now that I’m neck deep in it, it really doesn’t make a difference.

There is something that I found that helps me study, and maybe this was always available but I just found it. On the new 2011 Wiley CPA Software, if you hit print, it lists out all of questions from the section you’re taking and provides you with the detailed answer, similar to what Jeff occasionally puts out for the online test bank.

For me this is much easier than carrying around a book, and I can just copy/paste or create a PDF of the document so I can go through it at work. I can’t install the Wiley Software on my machine because of restrictions on it, so this is a nice work-around and it allows for better studying on the go without having to carrying around a textbook.

Good job Wiley.

I love your solid attitude but I cringe at your study method (been there, done that). The problem I would have, is I'd understand a concept perfectly but forget it 50 multiple questions later. Try the "layering" method, which is likely key to our passing, and helped me pass the last 3 exams. Do a x number of questions (10?) from one topic and repeat with other sections, then go BACK and do those first ten questions, but add another 10 from each section. Repeat. Pass.
