Summer “Fun” with FAR and AUD

Hey, NINJAs!

Well, I have bad news. I did not pass FAR, and I am bummed. I was truly hoping I would not have to retake this exam again, and I can already say I am not looking forward to retaking it.

I am planning to retake FAR at the beginning of July after all the emotions of failing fade. I will also go ahead and schedule AUD for the end of August so I at least have a month and a half to study for it.

My plan for reviewing FAR involves going over all the sections I struggle with and attempt to ace the material. I will also review every bit of material to refresh my memory.

I remember the sections of the exam that did not go well, but who knows what kind of exam I will get next so I have to study everything again, just in case.

I hate failing.

This is not my thing, but I have to pick myself up and go at it again.

My husband has encouraged me and does not judge me on how well or poor I do on the exams.

So, tomorrow I dust off the old FAR book one last time (I hope) and start studying again. This time around I hope the CPA gods are with me and the odds turn in my favor.

I absolutely hate that my first summer married is being spent studying for the CPA exam and not with my husband.

All I can do is pray and hope that next summer will be different.

Ive been studying since January and I still dont feel ready but I cant postpone it. Ill do my best and try to stay positive. It is a lot of material to learn and details to remember. I just wish sometimes that studying was my full time job like my college days. Lol

Thanks guys! Good Luck Alexa and Jr. on your exam. FAR is so much material and I am struggling too still to focus on weak areas and still remember everything else.
