The CPA Exam: A Humbling Experience

Keona2Keona is a [A71 product=”combo”]NINJA CPA blogger[/A71].

I reached my humbling period of the CPA exam process. I was able to pass the first two parts by just reading the book and completing the [A71 product=”mcqs”]NINJA MCQs[/A71].

For my third take at AUD, I decided to listen to AUD lectures. The lectures were boring but I was able to grasp concepts I didn’t fully understand before.

I tried to get over on Audit Sampling and Transaction Cycles, nevertheless, I know now I will not pass without fully understanding those topics. I bowed down to the CPA Exam for this section and went full throttle.

I also stopped talking about the exam so much to family and friends; I don’t need the added stress. I hope I can get passed AUD and move back to REG.

Until then I will be a regular at my local Starbucks.

I had trouble with Audit as well. My best advice to you will be to do tons of multiple choice questions. I bought the wiley book for audit and took a pen and pad and answered most of the questions in the book and test bank. You will succeed!

Family and friends always (ok most of the time) have your best interest at heart. I limited who I talked to about the exam too because 'did you study?' 'are you ready?' honestly increased my stress level. Find your balance and stay persistent, you got this!

My family and friends know to not even ask me. Otherwise I get a really wild look in my eyes and start hyperventilating.
