What a week its been. Last week I became sick with flu-like symptoms which eventually turned into a sinus infection. It couldnt have come at a worse time; I was supposed to take REG at the end of this week.
I started feeling ill and basically tried to convince myself I was not sick with the power of positive thinking! However, it quickly became clear to me that I in fact was sick and felt awful. I tried to study lying in bed but that was not productive. I felt so helpless because I knew how behind I was going to be studying plus how behind I would be at work. Finally, I just had to get real with myself and accept the fact that I was sick and may need to push the exam back. I had initially planned to take this week off work to study but I was out for 4 days last week and knew I couldnt do that. So, I then decided to look at other dates to take the exam, the end of February was the only Saturday I could find with availability. While I am feeling better physically and now mentally that I have a plan, it is still disappointing to me to know that I could have potentially been done with REG this week. Oh well that is life. Keep moving forward and dont look back. I am back studying and am very happy to be feeling better!
While I was ill, I received an e-mail from Roger CPA Review introducing the Interactive Practice Questions. I have just started working with the questions and I love them already! Heres why:
- If you are unsure about some questions or not scoring well on them, there is a link to the lecture material so you can go back and review the applicable topics (so helpful!)
- There are multiple choice and simulations this is my favorite part. I am very diligent in doing the MC questions; however, I am guilty sometimes of not working the simulations as much as I should. I think the new electronic format will help me a lot with that!
- They are organized really well by topic/section.
- The questions are timed so you can track yourself and really mimic the exam environment.
