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.
I took REG in late November 2011 and boom passed. BEC was next purchased the BEC NINJA notes and BEC Wiley test bank and boom passed in late February 2012.
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.
