Hello all. Last Sunday night, I didnt know whether I should be thanking Irene or cursing her. My REG exam was scheduled for Monday afternoon in New York City, and this nasty hag was wreaking havoc on the tri-state area, potentially impacting my exam date.
Well, she passed through without any major damage and the NYC MTA was scheduled to be running on 6am Monday, so I thought it was a date, but apparently Prometric had other ideas in mind. A day off for clean up.
Well, at first I was POd, because I just wanted to get past REG, but then I realized it was a good opportunity to work over some of the topics I hadnt been focusing on in the last week.
I really tried to focus on Tax for the last week, so I used that last day to review Bankruptcy, Contracts, Sales, all the non-tax related stuff, etc. The week leading up to the exam, I had a few days off, so I logged roughly 45 hours.
I never feel confident going into an exam, but boy, I walked out of this exam and I feel like I got served. Not really sure, but I feel like it was an absolute BOMB. Pretty sure Ill be retaking REG unless theres some miracle from above that happens, but I doubt it.
When you guys said that TBS were something else, boy you werent kidding. I had plenty of time and didnt even know what to do with myself on some of them. Anyway, its over for the next few weeks. I really do need the break to recoup and spend some time with the family, but like I said, I feel Round 2 with REG wont be far away.
Anyway, its Labor Day weekend and I have a frozen Margarita waiting for me in the kitchen, so this is Jay. O signing off. Ill be back in a few weeks, when I pick it all up again. Or of course, for my final post to let you know that Im a CPA, but dont think that will be happening.
