27 Hours & Ready for Regulation

Shawn is a weekly Club 75 Blogger as he documents his journey through the CPA Exam. He has been a member of Another71.com's Club 75 since December 2010.

I worked on all the multiple choice questions and every simulation in the Wiley REG book over the last week. That is a lot of multiple choice questions. I tallied up my answer sheets and it came out to 1,061 multiple choice questions (not counting the Appendixes in the back or Insurance).

Considering that I am shooting for about 1 minute a problem, which works out to 1061 minutes which comes out to about 18 hours for the actual questions. Count in the time spent going over the answers which was probably an extra 30 seconds for each question, it just about covers my study schedule for the week (about 27 hours).

That sounds about right. Hope I can pull off this pace on the exam date as I want to leave a BIG chunk of time for the simulations.

I spent all of Saturday reviewing the questions that I got wrong, ensuring that I understood the topic. Although there were a lot of them, I marked each question as I was doing them so that I could tell whether the mistake was from a:

1. Lack of Understanding
2. Careless Mistake
3. Memorization problem
4. Trick Question

I also marked any answers in the back that I found to be profound and am going through them to make sure the concept has stuck. I skipped the careless mistakes and the ones that I know I understand.

Sunday was just to sit back, enjoy the weather and review my notes. I did not want to do anything that would confuse me at this stage.

I heard an old R&B song on the radio yesterday and had to crack up at the lyrics.

Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes
If you don’t know me by now
You will never never never know me
All the things that we’ve been through
You should understand me like I understand you
Now girl I know the difference between right and wrong

Compared to the last time, I feel so much more comfortable and ready. I’ve put in the time and know the material. Hopefully today I knocked REG out of the ballpark (with anything over a 75). Have a good week everybody.
