Tyree is a new NINJA CPA Blogger.
How are you doing NINJA CPA readers! My name is Tyree and I graduated from graduate school in August 2013, which is when my CPA journey began.
After getting my degree I wanted to begin taking the exams, but did not know where to start. So I started researching different review programs like I’m sure you all did and already felt overwhelmed.
I took the exam in early November and I was encouraged because the questions seemed easier than the ones I had been studying. This optimism did not last long though when I received a 59 on my first BEC attempt.
After bombing BEC I did not want to even think about the CPA Exam. I completely stopped studying and thought that maybe I’m not just CPA material. While I was thinking this is I saw Jeff’s post on CPA Exam Failure: How to Recover and Retake.
For anyone who has taken or is about to take the exam this is a must read. All of the doubts and feelings I had were in this post and I realized that I needed to own my failure and study harder.
Now I have been studying since the beginning of March for FAR and will be using the NINJA Study framework this time along with the Wiley MCQs. This will be a long journey, but I am embracing it and only I can put the work in necessary to pass.
Until next time,
