So I was on Another71 last week reading everyones blogs, and I came across Jeffs tips for studying if you are 20 days out, and Panic set in! I was diligently listening to my lectures and was on schedule (well a wrong schedule, but was still on a schedule).
I dont know what I thought when I laid out my calendar, but I definitely didnt allocate enough time to get everything done. My test is on the 17th so last week I scrapped the rest of my lectures luckily I only had governmental and not-for-profit left, and I am pretty strong in those topics.
So I finished up my first round of multiple choice questions (every question suggested by Roger CPA Review) and now I am in crazy rewrite my notes mode. I have skipped this step in the past when I am in a rush but I urge you NOT to. Although it seems tedious, it really does help force things to memory that will inevitably be on the test!
I plan to have my rewriting done by Saturday, and then I will rework all multiple choice questions on topics that I didnt do so hot on during the first time. Then I will continue doing multiple choice questions in 20 question increments until I am getting a strong 80% in each topic.
I will also have my notebook with me wherever I go, along with Jeffs NINJA Study Guide to reread numerous times.
Wish me luck. I will let you know how it goes.
