Car broken into; CPA study materials stolen

Erica is a weekly Club 75 Blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam. She has been a member of's Club 75 since March 2011.

Last week was yet again eventful with baseball games, baseball practice, awards programs, and IEP meetings. My husband’s high school baseball team got runner-up in the Region Tournament advancing to sub-state. They won the sub-state game 13-0 on Friday, advancing to the 2011 Spring Fling State Tournament in Murfreesboro, TN; first time ever in the schools 26 year history.

To add to that excitement, I was watching my son in his special needs baseball game on Thursday evening, and in broad daylight 5 vehicles were broken into, yes stolen bags and windows smashed in, just one window on the other 4 vehicles, but the low-life individuals thought it would be even better to get the two back windows on the driver’s side of my vehicle. I spent the rest of the evening canceling credit cards.

I spent Friday closing bank accounts. I wonder what they will do with my not-so-neatly written review notes and BEC Gleim CDs that were found in a bag stolen from my vehicle. I guess it’s a good thing I am scheduled to re-write those study notes after I suffer through the MCQs this week.

What does mastering your study schedule mean anyway? Over the last two weeks, I have completed the 20 videos in my Gleim online course for BEC. Since I am not a great note taker, I re-wrote the CPA Review NINJA Master Study Guide for BEC found at (just to have it stolen?).

I find that watching the videos and note taking are easier to accomplish than the MCQs. I am now lost in MCQs for BEC. I have not completed near enough, and am behind on my study schedule, therefore I have rescheduled my 5/31 BEC exam for July. Am I the only one who has played the rescheduling game?

I am off to Murfreesboro tomorrow to support the school’s baseball and softball teams in the state tournament. I am taking my laptop in order to be able to spend the mornings and nights answering as many multiple choice questions as possible.

Also, am I the only one who finds it discouraging when the scores on the multiple choice questions are not in the upper 70s low 80s? BEC is not my favorite part of the exam (if there is such a thing to have a favorite part of the CPA Exam). I am not a fan of economics, cost accounting and IT!!!

I am off to hit more multiple choice questions. I am shooting for 750 this week, in 37.50 sets of 20 multiple choice questions at no more than 30 minutes per session. If I master that plan this week, I will put in 18-20 hours of multiple choice questions.

I think that is a reasonable plan of action, provided I can suffer through it. I will let you know how that goes next time.
