REG Exam: A New Study Approach

12 Jul 2016


Christina FChristina is a NINJA CPA blogger.

I’ve been doing a lot of reading on the Forum. I’ve noticed a lot of people talking about how they have no motivation or just feel lazy and don’t want to study. I know that feeling all too well.

I came home with a plan 3 nights in a row and didn’t end up studying because I didn’t “feel” like it.

I’ve been stressed out to the max with everything that’s not the exam and then I have the exam on top of it all.

With everything going on, I have formulated a new plan to hopefully help relieve some stress and just maybe some of my laziness with studying.

I’m going to get my NTS, but I am not going to schedule my REG exam just yet. I have a goal date in mind to take my exam, but no matter what I’ve done in the past I never did as many MCQs as I had wanted.

So this time, I’m spending my time reading and re-reading my [A71 product=”notes”]NINJA Notes, after my first read all the way through, I’m going to add in the MCQ’s.

I refuse to schedule my test until I am trending at least a 70% on my MCQ’s. This way I know for a fact that I am studying as much as I can and actually have a shot of passing this exam.

I figure if I schedule 2 weeks out, those last 2 weeks I’ll be able to raise my score higher than 70% with a good review and feel more comfortable.

I’m hoping this new plan allows me better studying so I’m not stressing about a specific date for my test until the last 2 weeks.
