So I survived my first CPA exam! FAR was definitely challenging, but I'm glad I at least have my first attempt out of the way. I say first "attempt" because I am still waiting on my score! Although I am anxious to find out how I did, I know there is nothing I can do until the scores are released. I have also started studying for Audit, which is currently scheduled for April 1st, so there is no time to waste! I took a few days last week to relax and allow my mind to start fresh, but did not take too long of a break as I find that I work better off of momentum. I started studying for FAR in early January having only finished my undergrad in late December, so I never really allowed myself to lose my academic mindset or study habits. I am actually treating these exams like a type of extra "spring semester" - hopefully this will keep me on track to finish by the summer!
