Getting ready to schedule my test is always a challenge for me. Are Saturdays really the best day to take a test after a full work week or should I spend PTO to take it on a different day?
I have taken two tests on Friday mornings, typically before a weekend with family events. I have also taken a Saturday morning test and a Saturday afternoon test.
Both worked out alright at the time since I still got the rest of the weekend to relax after long weeks of studying, but did not result in passing scores.
This time, since I was waiting until I felt like the studying was going well, there are no weekend options available without delaying my next test by a couple weeks.
I do not want to do this if I want to attempt to get in three tests this section. Therefore, I am leaning towards a Monday, giving me the entire weekend to study without having added stress from long hours at work.
This does mean using PTO, and keeping the weekend from filling up with any distractions, but that seems like a small price to pay to keep on schedule. Now I am wondering why I did not think of this strategy for the CPA Exam sooner!
