FAR Exam Complete: The Wait for My Score Begins

Karen is a NINJA CPA Blogger. Hey fellow NINJAs!! It’s been quite a while since my last blog but things have been kind of crazy to say the least. I took my FAR exam on Monday, November 5th. I put in an incredible amount of study time for this exam. I have no clue as to the number of hours but I do know that the four days prior to the exam I put in four, twelve hour study days. This was my second time to sit for FAR and by the time Monday came, I was fried and really ready to get it over with. I know at a minimum that I completed over 3000 MCQs and over 100 SIMS this time alone. I constantly listened to Jeff’s FAR NINJA Audio at work also. And I mean constantly. I arrived at the Prometric Center two hours early. It’s a […]

Flexible Regulation Plans + Decisions to Make

Megan is a weekly Another71 Facebook blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam. This week has been incredibly productive. I moved to a new apartment and still managed to fit in some time to study. It helped that I planned ahead and took a half day off of work to visit a university nearby and study in their library for an uninterrupted four hour study session! I’m also excited because the new apartment complex has a gym, so I’ll save a bit of time in my day by not having the extra miles between me and that treadmill! Back to studying…I still feel like I’m behind. To be honest, I haven’t even scheduled my REG exam yet, because I’m not sure when I will finish covering the material. The last month has been very difficult at work, and I refuse to schedule the exam until I have […]

Three Sections of Audit Down, Two to Go!

Sherri is a weekly Another71 Facebook blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam. Well, I guess that the best thing that I can say about the Audit Section is that at least it’s not FARE! I’ve been really working to try to get all of the Sections in my Roger CPA Review book completed by February 15 so that I can focus on working the Wiley software until test day. I’m hoping to test at the end of the month. It is a relief not to have to work so many computational problems for this test. The Roger book covers the material in a logical order that makes it easy to understand, rather than just memorize. The stories that he tells about his days as an auditor are hilarious! I’ve covered the General Audit Standards (Training, Independence and Professional Due Care) and am busy studying the Standards […]

“Sick” of W-2s + Not Ready to Schedule FAR

Kricket is a weekly Club 75 Blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam. She has been a member of Another71.com’s Club 75 since May 2009. Well I started the year out with the best of intentions that have all gone wrong. I was going to focus on my work and studying so as not to fall behind in either. I was going to keep my house clean and my boys taken care of properly. I was going to stay healthy and not let a cold or whatever, get me down. I have been working 12 to 14 hour days since the first of January and I’m just physically run down. For the past two weeks I have been fighting a cold and last Friday all of my good intentions went to the dogs. The fever kicked in and went up rapidly. I haven’t picked up a book […]
