I see you deleted my post Jeff. I have a family, 2 dogs, a son, a house, and a full-time job in public and passed in 2010. Same responsibilities as many others taking the exam. What many CPA candidates need is a kick in the butt. Something to get them back on their feet. Whether it be the truth about outside perspective or a failing score. Just a side note on what I think can help anyone. When studying/ doing MCQ's, you should understand the material rather than just doing the work. Like when doing a MCQ, really understand the problem and why the answer is what it is before moving on. then during the exam, any curveball you get thrown you will do much better, I guarantee it. Peace Out!!

Jeff, Perfect timing. I've had some unproductive study days and seems like everything in my life is half-ass right now. Thanks for creating this video to get me back on track ;)

I have a pregnant wife, a 2 year old, work full time and I passed in one try too, and all in a little under 8 months. It was not easy it required tons of commitment on my end and a very understanding wife who was uncomfortable with pregnancy and a 2 year old I really didn't get to spend any time with.
