It’s funny how when I think I have everything figured out and I’m in control, life throws me a curve ball. My study plan was going along nicely until late last week when I started to get debilitating headaches. Normally I would just take some aspirin and move along. However, the medicine wasn’t getting rid of the headaches, so I had a weekend I wanted to be studying wasted. Luckily, I gave myself a few more weeks than the plan on the Roger CPA Review site, so I think I will be okay. Life couldn’t just throw me one curve ball; it had to throw me two. Yesterday I found out that my husband was offered a position at a company in Vancouver, British

Well, I took BEC and have mixed emotions about it. On a solid 20 to 30 percent of the questions I had no preparation through Becker. That said, I felt that my overall business knowledge helped me do relatively well. To satisfy my obsession with statistics, as well as my score, I keep track of how well I do during the exam, or at least how well I think I am doing. I keep track of my answers of which I am certain of as well as the answers where I eliminate two of the answers, one of the answers and none of the answers (guess). After calculating my weighted average, I would guess I landed somewhere near a 70% to a 75% correct. Who knows what that means, of course. The written communication was a breeze, and I feel like I will get close to full credit. Now my

Melanie 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 April 2011. I read once that if you’re happy and everything is going well, are you motivated to change? It’s when things aren’t going well that you start evaluating. Hmm, that didn’t work so well. Maybe I should try something different next time. The CPA Review is something that I have thought about how I can change my ways. My first round about was rushed looking back. I gave myself a month to study and prepare and then sat for a test. I had taken the “I can do it in under a year” approach. Ha, did I fail that. I came out of each exam feeling defeated and overwhelmed. I had imagined that after each part I would be relieved but honestly, I was

Matt is a weekly Club 75 Blogger as he documents his journey through the CPA Exam. He has been a member of Another71.com’s Club 75 since April 2010. In my last entry, I was in the final stages of preparing for my Regulation exam. The latter part of the week included rereading my notes countless times and working through hundreds of multiple choice using the Wiley Software test bank that Roger CPA Review provides with their course materials. I found it really helpful to work MCQs over the various different sections as I studied. This way I would get a good grasp on the materials right after the lectures and then I could continue on. Every couple of chapters I would stop and create an exam that covered everything I had studied to date. This was helpful in the sense that while I might have been listening to lectures in
