We are excited to introduce our newest CPA Exam guest blogger: Doug Richter! Doug was our Student of the Month back in November of 2013 and we're thrilled to have him write for our blog. Doug is a valuation/forensic analyst and he is ready to share his stories and experiences as he completes his CPA Exam journey this year.
As I write my first blog post, my two most recent exam experiences come to mind. With BEC and AUD behind me, I chose to tackle REG in November. The entire process was exhausting. There is a ton of material, and you really have to know it all. Like Forest Gump says about a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get. I put together my plan to study all of September and October, with an early November exam scheduled. This is doable.
I started watching Rogers videos in early September, and for about three weeks I kept a stringent schedule. I watched the videos, took detailed notes, reviewed my notes, reviewed practice questions, highlighted my notes, and reviewed my notes again. You get the picture. Each night, after my toddler would finally go to sleep, I would spend three to four hours studying. This meant closing the office door and locking it so I would have zero distractions. It seemed to be working.
