CPA Exam Blogger Blake: Week 9

So I’m chest deep in BEC and have found myself really struggling. Each day I tell myself I’m going to get through half a chapter (50 pages, usually). More often than not, I end up getting through 1/3 of a chapter and closing the book so the pain ends.

Each section of my Becker review seems to get worse. After Corporate Governance I thought, “Economics can’t be too bad.” Of course it was as bad, if not worse. I haven’t practiced some of that stuff since I was 19.

I decided today to move onto Financial Management and BOOM, I’m looking at a ton of bizarre equations I’m totally unfamiliar with.

After completing Audit, this stuff seems like walking over glass, of course I have no clue how I scored on Audit. When I think about Audit, if I were to not pass and come close I wouldn’t cringe restudying for it. But to restudy BEC will be like drawing my own blood!

The future doesn’t look bright either! Apparently the 4th and 5th sections of Becker reviews only get worse with the IT section. I’m hoping that by August 5, I’ll have a decent grasp of this all, but it certainly feels like I’m staring up at the Sears Tower from the sidewalk; intimidating, to say the least.

With my two week warning coming up on Friday, I’ll be kicking it into overdrive on Sunday after my daughter's 3rd birthday. I’m glad the Bellevue, WA, library has great hours on the weekend because that’s where I will be this weekend and next.
