Parth is a new NINJA CPA Blogger.
After spending the past week frantically running around campus for various Final Exams, I’m now ready to take on a more pressing goal: Pass all four parts of the CPA Exam within five months.
You might be wondering “Why is he attempting such a Herculean feat?” Well, I have six months to take all the exam parts listed on my NTS and June is a blackout month. To some, this situation might seem like an egregious mistake.
I prefer to see it as an opportunity to finish all four parts of the CPA Exam while retaining the summer months as free time before I start my full-time job [assuming I pass all four parts on the first try]. My drive and my study planning ability make me believe that I can achieve my goal.
I plan to take FAR first under the rationale that if I’m able to pass FAR right away, it’ll allow for smoother sailing as I move forward with the other three exams. I’ve just begun my studying for FAR, which means I haven’t entered into the “meat” of the subject matter yet. Once I do, I’ll be sure to do plenty of MCQs as preparation for exam day.
I understand that there will be numerous distractions along the path to becoming a CPA, especially when you consider that I will be entering my final semester of college. These distractions will represent a good test of my discipline and my ability to balance CPA Exam studying with the social experiences that I find most valuable.
I’ve intentionally placed study break days within each week of my study planner so that I can achieve the aforementioned balance.
Although it’ll require quite a few sacrifices, I’m looking forward to my CPA Exam journey. I imagine the journey will teach me as much about balancing life’s priorities as it will about the exam material. I’m excited to have the opportunity to share my story with you all.
Have a great Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
