HA71R or in CPA studying mnemonic terminology – Hello Another71.com readers.
I had high dreams for myself and started sitting for the exam back in 2007 as I was also taking graduate school courses and obtaining my MBA.
One section later I quit In the mean time I graduated with my MBA, got married, had a baby and moved from Tampa to Phoenix for my wifes job.
One quick job search later, I knew I needed to acquire my CPA. With a $3k investment into some software I was on my way. My software arrived in March 2011, and I scheduled FAR for early July and REG for late August. Failed FAR miserably and REG with a 70.
Besides the fact that failing these exams isnt cheap, I felt that I just had wasted hours and hours of my time Then one day while I was studying for the exam, I flipped over to Facebook (we all do it) and somehow ended up on the Another71.com Facebook page. After a couple of days of looking at the actual site and reading comments, etc I purchased the REG NINJA notes and the REG Wiley MCQs.
Im currently studying for AUD as I have scheduled the exam for May 30th. I just started watching the lectures yesterday and I am following my current strategy of watching all of the lectures first and then completing the MCQs within the software that I purchased.
Next I buy the Wiley test bank and do MCQs for 2 hours per day (1 hour at lunch and 1 hour after my son is in bed). In addition, I mix in about an hour per day of reading the NINJA notes and/or Wiley Focus Notes. Then Im moving onto FAR and that scares me about as much as the next KSU Basketball Coach leaving for greener pastures (as in $EC green).
Well I will write you all next week and let you know how much of these AUD lectures I complete.
Oh and my wife is pregnant with a baby girl in August just to add to the pressure of memorizing various mnemonics.
