Hello Everyone -
Let me begin by sharing with you all that I passed FAR! Having only studied for two weeks, this was a huge accomplishment and is proof that the CPA exam is conquerable, with time and dedication, that is. Having said that, let me remind you all, that I did nothing else but study for 10+ days; in fact, I must admit… I was pleasantly surprised when I received my score, as I couldn't help but recall the feeling of utmost defeat that I felt leaving the testing site.
So, time to celebrate, right? Wrong...I take REG this coming Saturday, October 1st...followed by AUD on October 30th and BEC on November 29th.
Studying for REG was going well until I started work at PricewaterhouseCoopers last week. I am now struggling to find time to study. Had I known how difficult it would be to study after a full day at work, I would have requested a later start date… work is mentally and physically draining (as is the commute), and the last thing I want to do is review tax code and business law on my “down” time.
I will update you all after Saturday – for those taking exams during the upcoming testing window, I wish you all of the best…
As Peter Olinto would say…’we are on our way, to a CPA’!
