Tomorrow is the big day. The day I take the FAR portion of the C.P.A. exam for the fourth time. My previous scores has ranged from the mid 50s to the mid 60s, so I think it is safe to say that this test is my doom.
I really started to study hard the past month or so, and I felt pretty good leading up to last weekend when I planned to take time off to have a no-distraction study palooza. Well, life happened and there was a death in the family, so I did not get the amount of studying done that I probably needed to. So, right now I feel kind of apprehensive, and I did make a “worst case senario” plan, but I can still totally pass this.
I did make use of those word documents I posted about a while ago. Here they are for all my transparent glory:
Yes, I color coded my notes. I have three or four sets of colored pens. They are not just for my planner.
You can also see that There are a lot of “none” spaces on my tracker. Yeah, I should have started getting serious sooner. I also went on vacation and ignored everything for a couple of those weeks. Slight regret because I am not where I want to me on the practice tests, but I needed my vacation.
My test is at 8 am tomorrow morning. It is a four hour test that will probably take me two hours if I go by past exams. Hopefully, it will take me a tad longer than that because my speed is not a good thing when the questions are made to trick you. I need to slow down and make sure I read and reread everything.
I plan on taking today as a major review day on the areas I still have issues in. Work has been crazy busy this week, so I do not know if I will get much time, but I have also worked my butt off the past few days to get all my assignments to a point where I may get time to review at my desk this afternoon. We’ll see.
Wish me luck and good luck to everyone else taking the exam!
