Stephanie is a new weekly Club 75 Blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam.
I really dont have much to blog about this week since I didnt do much studying last week. I went on vacation Wednesday through Sunday. Then Monday through Tuesday I was running around town getting ready, doing my volunteering at the shelter and other errands.
I really have to buckle down this week. I will probably have to reschedule the test at this rate. My test is 7/11, and Im just starting AUD-3. There are 5 chapters in Roger. This week is pretty open so I plan on really cracking down on the studying.
I got my score from taking FAR last month, and as expected I didnt pass. I wont go into what score I received, but needless to say, I did better than expected. My last few weeks of studying I was a mess, and I expected to bomb it. I ended up with a respectable failing score, and Im sure next time I can pass. I dont think Ive ever been so pleased about a failing score. That was the first test I took in 2011, and I was surprised to see the new score reports dont even have a comparable score.
Im trying to formulate a schedule for this coming week and decide what will keep me motivated. Did everyone read Evans story? There are a lot of naysayers on the forums sometimes that boast about passing the exam the first time. That can get me down sometimes because I know I only have one person to blame for all of my failures. When I read Evans story, it reminds me that it will all be worth it once I have those 3 little letters behind my name. Especially in this rough job market and being unemployed, I have been reminded of the importance of those 3 letters.
Anyway better get back to planning out my busy study week. Happy studying!!
