Running for Town Recorder + Hammering out FAR MCQs

Leah is a NINJA CPA Blogger.

I hope to sit for my first exam in the April/May window, and I’ve been studying for FAR using NINJA Audio, Notes and Flashcards in addition to a main review course.

I really like the flashcards. They seem to help me retain more and pick up on details I previously missed.

I’m still anxiously awaiting a letter in the mail from the West Virginia state board that says I have the green light. When and if my application is approved, I think I’ll have a mini celebration!

I finally made it through all of the material once. This felt like a big accomplishment in itself, but I realize I still have more studying to do.

I wish I had the awesome ability to retain everything the first time around. I’m going to start reviewing and hammering out MCQ’s since this seems to be what everyone on Another71 forum suggests.

Something else I accomplished while finishing up round one of study material is that I decided to run for town recorder. I’ve been a town council member for almost four years (two terms) and I thought I wouldn’t run again while going through the CPA exam process. Hopefully I’ll be moving from council member to recorder.

I took the time to run around town, knock on doors and get all of the required signatures. It wasn’t something I wanted to do, but I learned more about the people in the community.

Unfortunately, our very small, very country town suffers from a lack of interest. I can see some positive changes may be on the horizon, and I want to continue to be a part of that.

I haven’t mentioned to many people that I plan to sit for the exams. It’s not something someone shouts from the rooftop anyway, but I’ve been particularly careful to keep it to myself. I hadn’t mentioned it to my parents until they started asking me about my recent hermit like habits.

Ok, I’ll be truthful. I guess I’m not very confident that I will be able to pass the exams so I figure the fewer people that know, the better. There, I said it.

Now that I NINJA blogged that tidbit of information, maybe I can move on and find that confidence. Happy studying!
