I’m working my way through Yaeger CPA Review’s Regulation HomeStudy program and I’m finding that I need to make notes of rules/exceptions so that I won’t forget them when I take the Regulation Exam in a month. This practice will work with any section of the CPA Exam, but is especially helpful I think with […]Read More
I peeked into the mailbox yesterday and sure enough some spam from some company called “NASBA” was in there. I opened it up and before I looked (true story) I prayed “God, please make this say that I passed” (or something to that effect). Instead, my eyes zeroed in on some heartless line about “no […]Read More
Have you activated your subscription to the Professional Literature?
For all of the NTS renewals I’ve done over the last couple of (gasp) years, I have yet to subscribe to the professional literature access offered by NASBA. I’ve paid enough $$ in exam fees that they should give me a lifetime subscription. If you have a good study package, this is probably just a […]Read More

Major CPA Exam Changes Proposed by AICPA
The AICPA recently released a document titled “Exposure Draft: Proposed Content and Skill Specifications for the Uniform CPA Examination“. The PDF is a long (45 pages) read and it’s crammed with information. Some sections will be changed substantially, while others (FARE) won’t be affected as much. Keep in mind that these are only proposed alterations. […]Read More
REG – After Sleeping on It…
After sleeping on it (and thinking about it all evening), I’m thinking/hoping that I was getting tripped up on test questions (i.e. fake questions that don’t count – the AICPA just uses them to gauge whether or not they’ll use them in the future as “real” questions). I felt like I knew the material pretty […]Read More
