Club 75 Member Spotlight: Megan

What is your work/educational background?

I work for a public accounting firm and have 2.5 years experience. I work predominately on audits (mostly governmental), but help with tax returns February-April 15.

I have a BBA in Accounting from WTAMU.

How many CPA Exam sections have you passed?

I have passed 2 sections of the exam, AUD and REG.

What CPA Review course(s) are you using?

I am using Becker and I'm enrolled in an online course with them.

In general, how is everything going?

Mostly good. While studying for BEC though, life got in the way, so I haven't been able to put in the study time needed. I don't feel near as confident for this exam as I did for the CPA Exam sections.

What is the most frustrating aspect of the CPA Exam?

Mostly the time required to get a passing score. It's hard to cover everything and master everything in a reasonable amount of time.

How do you balance family/friends while studying?

I mostly do everything late at night. I'm a night owl, so it works for me. I work full time, am married, and have a two year old, so I try to spend as much time with them as I can. The week before an exam though, I lock myself in my room after dinner and get as much done as I can.

What made you decide to take the CPA Exam?

Professionally, it is such an asset to have your CPA license. There are so many opportunities for accountants, and having ‘CPA' behind your name really opens doors.

What advice would you give to people who are struggling with the CPA Exam?

Keep with it! It will definitely pay off in the long run.

Anything else you would like to share?

What do you call the guy (or girl) who made a 75 on the exam? CPA.

Megan has been a Club 75 Member since April 2010.
