Stressing Out with only Five Days until REG Exam

Danielle is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger.

Hi everyone!

Only 5 days left until the REG exam. I have finished rewriting all the NINJA Notes, and am the majority of the way through reworking the multiple choice questions.

I am starting to get really stressed out though. I have been studying very hard for 7 weeks straight. I do nothing else besides work and study. I feel guilty if I work out, play with my puppy, see my friends, or even just enjoy some time to myself.

I don't know how to balance having a life and studying for the CPA exam. I have studied hard on all my passed exams and have failed.

I feel like I cant afford to take time to myself this time. I know we are all in the same position, but I guess I am just having a weak day. I guess all these struggles will make finally passing so much better, right?

Well, with 5 days left I will be doing nothing but Wiley MCQs. The day before I plan on taking a practice exam and making sure I understand anything I did wrong. Morning of I will review my notes one more time before going in. I really hope everything pays off.

I wish anyone taking the exam this week lots of luck!

  • Hey Danielle…I have an exam in a few days as well and I am right there with you…I feel guilty every moment I take for myself. I have my weak days, but we get through them and that is the important part. Working and studying is one of the biggest that I have a difficult time balancing. Good luck on your exam and stay positive!
