Willing to Try Anything to Pass REG

Danielle is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger.

So I failed REG.

I was really upset after I found out. After other exams I have failed, I was able to pinpoint the weak spot in my studying, but with this exam I really did everything I could to prepare.

I did so many multiple choice questions that the majority of questions I worked through I had already seen multiple times. I rewrote my notes. I studied the flash cards. I would make a list each night after studying of topics I wanted to go back and review again.

What I was the most upset about after finding out I failed is that this is the worst I have done on an exam so far. It is clear that I am doing something wrong. Or I am just not studying the material in a way that is working for me.

I know I am not stupid. I know I am giving this my all. I know I will pass this exam. I just need to figure out how to study for me.

I have rescheduled REG for July 12th, so I have a little less than a month to prepare. I am going back through the chapters and taking brief notes on major topics to refresh my brain. I am making my own flashcards so I am writing the material down for a second time.

I am going to go back through all the Wiley MCQs. Beyond that, I am not really sure what else I should try. So I am coming to all of you for support, guidance, and advice. I am open to anything! I will try anything!
