My Third Take at REG is in the Books

Keona2Keona is a [A71 product=”combo”]NINJA CPA blogger[/A71]. My third take at REG is in the books. I took my test quietly without many people knowing the date of my test. Before the exam, I was trending over 85% on [A71 product=”mcqs”]NINJA MCQs[/A71] which boosted my confidence. I blew through the MCQs and the SIMs much more easily this time. I’m not sure if it because I was more prepared, or if I got lucky with questions that hit on my strong points. I took a few days off from work before and after the test. Work has been stressful as we are now in our budget process. A few days before my exam I knew I was ready and used the next few days as time management practice. The last take at REG I spent way too much time on the MCQs and ended up with not enough time for my SIMs. This journey has been mine for almost 2 years. I sacrificed time with my loved ones and put on a few pounds. I know what it takes to pass: dedication and time. There is no short cut to passing the CPA exam. I find it funny that with every retake I always learn more about the topics. Although I received a 74 there was so much more I learned while restudying for my exam. During this wait for my score, I will catch up with friends and also start back on my exercise routine. I’m relieved with the thought I may be officially done with the CPA exam.
