Well most of us are done with testing in this window. I hope it went well for all of us.

After watching most of the lectures of Becker and Roger CPA Review, doing millions of MCQs, and some simulations, I sat for three exams this testing window. Some people call me crazy and some people are calling me “superwoman” for sitting for all these exams in one window.

With a BEC credit lingering in the background, “I had to do what I had to do.” It wasn’t one of the smartest moves I’ve made but it’s worth a shot.

I sat for FAR on Monday and it was OK. The first two testlets were medium and the third one was for sure harder. The simulations were OK. I had a hard time with two of them, but I left plenty of time for them, so I gave all of them my best shot.

Now that I have all of the three exams behind me, it’s time for me to unwind and relax. I’ve taken the rest of the week off from work and going camping with the family. We are leaving in the morning and I can’t wait to be sitting by the fire or pool reading a book that is not a CPA review material book. I don’t know if I can actually do that, but I will for sure try.

The next three weeks are going to be long weeks, but it’s a good thing I’m going to keep myself busy so I can try to keep my mind off the score release.

For those of you still testing, good luck, and for those of you who are not, I’m joining you for the waiting game.

Till next time!!
