Tick tock… tick tock…

That is the sound I keep hearing in my head as I peel another page off my daily calendar. I have 8 days until my battle with BEC, and I am trying to remain positive.

The forum has helped me out a bit with some studying decisions this week. I owe all of you a big thank you for convincing me that rewriting my notes was the way to go!

I do however feel like my hand is going to fall off. I still have about fifty pages to rewrite but I am having so many ah ha moments that it is worth the bump forming on my finger. I am hoping to be done rewriting by Friday so that my weekend will solely be a multiple choice marathon.

I had to work Monday which is a holiday for my firm, so I get to use it as a floater holiday. I will probably take Monday off and spend the day at the library. It’s the best place for me to remain focused I have come to learn.

I have realized though when I am doing multiple choice questions I try to avoid the topics I hate the most. I know this is not a good idea and I need to break this habit ASAP. Therefore this weekend I am going to focus on the three chapters in the Wiley book I hate the most and make sure I know them inside and out.

I really do not want to fail BEC again. It’s not even because I will lose my audit credit anymore, it’s more because I will be embarrassed to say I failed it again.

That being said, I am going to work my butt off for the next 8 days and pray for a 75! That is all I want, I won’t be greedy. However what I do want is to actually find out my score on 11/3 so I can tell how much I need to kill myself for FARE on 11/28 if I did pass in order to have a chance of not losing my audit credit on 11/30. Oh, the joys of the CPA exam!

I wish you all a successful testing window this last quarter!

Good luck,
