Sherri is a weekly Another71 Facebook blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam.

Well, I guess that the best thing that I can say about the Audit Section is that at least it’s not FARE!

I’ve been really working to try to get all of the Sections in my Roger CPA Review book completed by February 15 so that I can focus on working the Wiley software until test day. I’m hoping to test at the end of the month.

It is a relief not to have to work so many computational problems for this test. The Roger book covers the material in a logical order that makes it easy to understand, rather than just memorize. The stories that he tells about his days as an auditor are hilarious!

I’ve covered the General Audit Standards (Training, Independence and Professional Due Care) and am busy studying the Standards of Fieldwork (Planning, Internal Control and Corroborative Evidence).

I’m just about done with Audit Section Three. Only two more sections to go!

I am trying, though probably not too successfully, to maintain a tiny bit of balance with all of the work and study going on in my world at the moment. I want to be able to achieve my goals and still maintain my sanity. I’ve got a few strategies for success….

1. I have been working out with a trainer twice a week. The workouts help keep me accountable for my maintaining my physical health and make me feel successful at something that doesn’t involve the CPA exam.

2. This blog helps keep me accountable for my CPA studies. Blogging is a bit therapeutic because it allows me to be able to write about my experiences with CPA test and read about those of others.

3. I am making sure to find time for a night out with my husband once a week to see a movie, have dinner or watch TV. I try not to dread my study time or think about all of the things that I could be doing instead.

I hope that all of you are doing well with your studies and still finding some small amount of time to enjoy daily life, family and friends.

Until next week!
