Everyone studying for the CPA exam has made a lot of personal sacrifices. With CPA exam studying, work and full-time graduate school, all the items that require my time can be overwhelming.
However, Ive tried to keep motivated by remembering that short-term sacrifices will pay off in the long-term. This means that when (not if, but when) all of us see PASS on our computer screen, thats one step closer to finishing the chapter in our lives titled CPA Exam: Trials & Tribulations.
As I continue rewriting/reading notes and working Wiley MCQs, I try to keep the long-term payoff in mind. Im redoing the MCQs from each chapter in my self-study materials, and reworking the SIMs even though Ill get completely different SIMs in the exam. Its more about refining the thought processes of solving a question correctly, than memorization at this point.
We all know that the CPA exam loves to throw us curve balls, so I want to make sure that I understand the theory behind it. However, memorization would serve me well with these audit reports and assertions!
