Dreams Begin Again: One Week until REG

Hey NINJAs! It’s getting close to my REG date, and I had a dream last night about the test. I can’t remember what it was about, but I woke up feeling stressed.

This is becoming a common occurrence – I dreamed I forgot my NTS a few days before my BEC exam.

I started studying for REG about a month ago and I’ll be done with my last section tomorrow. Then it’s time for review, review, review. Oh, and non-stop Wiley MCQs.

A great thing happened recently, I joined a CPA exam study group. I’ve never really been a fan of study groups, and most of the time, I come to the conclusion that I could’ve studied more efficiently by myself rather than with the group.

But that was not the case this time. This wasn’t the kind of group where you actually study interactively, but the kind where you study separately, in the company of other people also studying.

It was amazing how productive I was there! It was also nice to meet some other people studying and share our experiences with each other. I only wish I’d found this group sooner.

Study groups are awesome! I’m going to try to find a study group for FAR in Sacramento when I move up there later this summer.

Tomorrow is my last section of REG (whew, finally!). Hope everyone got to take a break from studying and enjoy the holiday!
