My fellow NINJAs,
I am sorry for not writing for so long, but I have been swallowed up in trying to study for my upcoming FAR exam. I take the exam TODAY and I am trying not to freak out.
I have a tendency to freak out on important exams, so one of my good friends in school developed a short rhyme that I could say to calm myself down. It goes something like this:
Breathe in, breathe out
And dont freak out!
Every time I take a test and start to feel stressed, I say this little rhyme to myself and it usually helps me refocus on the test and keep going. I am planning on doing well, even though this is my first time sitting for the CPA exam.
I have studied hard and all I have to do is stay calm and watch out for important details like dates! (For some reason I keep missing little stuff like this on my practice questions.)
Anyways, good luck on your studies and exams! And remember that belief in yourself is half of the battle.
