Happy New Year to everyone. I dont think its a secret to know what my new years resolution is. Suffice to say its been hard studying these past few weeks, but Ive gotten some time in, some days more than others, but with the holidays now over, its time focus back on whats important. I did build a bit of extra time into my schedule to account for what Id figure would be a holiday slowdown, so Im not really far off where I want to be.
Ive 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 Ive completed the material. I learned the hard way that its 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, Im going to do every 2011 Wiley CPA question at least once.
Ive moved past Corporate Governance, and am now on IT. Corporate Governance wasnt a bad chapter, reminded me of business classes I took back in college. Im a little familiar with some IT terms, so I had a bit of a head start, but now that Im neck deep in it, it really doesnt 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 youre 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 cant 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.
