The Ridiculous Wait for Scores

This score release (or lack thereof) is really bringing a whole new meaning to March Madness. I really expected by the time I was writing this post that I would have scores to report. It blows my mind that the next two testing windows will be like this. What about those who are under the gun for the 18-month window?

Before this, the longest I have ever waited for a score was about three weeks. I was planning to re-take any section, if needed, right at the beginning of April. That plan is definitely out the window as I have no idea if I should be studying, and/or which section to be studying. Let alone be ready to take an exam in about a week from now.

I actually considered breaking out either my REG or FAR books to do a review and get back into the swing of things. However, just as quickly as that idea popped into my head, it was gone. If I need to get into the swing of studying I need to jump in with two feet and be in the right mindset. Casually studying either section will only drag on the studying and the materials.

I am worried that I am loving this non-studying lifestyle that I have grown accustomed to. The Cherry Blossoms here in DC are starting to bud and are expected to be at their peak in about a week or so. This means high amounts of tourists, but still a great time to be outside here in the District. I hope I can keep the possible score release off my mind as it is a major distraction until they are actually released.

Virginia, What study materials are you using and also what is your study schedule? Do you use Jeff's ninja? I have been working so many hours at work and it is so hard to find time to study so i have been asking people what their schedule is like. I hopped you passed both your exams!

Yes, I do believe this wait is very unfair, and I have been in touch with NASBA and the AICPA because I am nervous about the 18-month deadline. Nothing doing though. I don't think they'll be extending the time limit for anyone, unless enough of us complain. In the meantime, still waiting it out........!

@Melissa: I use Gleim, and I highly reccomend the course. I used another well known course before and never passed any sections. I do use Jeff's NINJA notes and love them. No matter what review course you use they will help you out.
