The only things will happen is with a plan right?

Yes that’s right. So without further ado here is what I’m going to do to ENSURE I get through FAR and understand it enough to pass.

I will be done with all lectures by July 9th.

Between July 9th and July 23rd go through the Becker questions AGAIN. Rewriting my notes and making key points stick until then. I will make a list of all the areas that stump me and the areas that I take too long to answer questions. As I feel comfortable with the material I will cross it off the list.

From July 24st through August 10th do the Roger CRAM. While doing the Roger CRAM I will be doing the corresponding Becker questions and Wiley questions.

From August 11th through the 19th go thru the Becker questions again and Wiley questions for the same chapters.

August 19th to the 28th (REVIEW REVIEW REVIEW). I will be throwing in atleast 5 TBS days in the mix. I will be going over all of my weak areas (the areas that I had on my list) every single night (atleast 5-6 questions from each) while also going over the important points for my strong areas.

I will be doing the Wiley online test bank as well.

So there it goes……

What’s your study plan?

I Passed BEC

I just checked my score and I passed!!! I'm super excited.

I first took BEC on 4/9/2010 and failed with a 69, then a 64, then a 70 and then finally on 4/9/2011 I passed with a 75!!! I'll take it. So thats four times!! Determination is key.

Now I can get some sleep.

I'm so happy.

Waiting Game...

Well its about that time. Score Releases have begun. And I'm ever so patiently waiting for my BEC result. Initially I was really nervous and literally shaking but now I just want my score. Usually by this time I would be zoning out or putting the books down but I'm wide awake. My adrenaline is fired up. Hopefully in 24 hours or less I will know if I'm a 50% CPA or not.

In other news tonight has been the most productive in a long time. Maybe because I'm in the home stretch to studying round 1 for FAR. If I want to pass I have to get through these questions atleast 3 times. I pushed FAR back until August 28th. I need all the time I can get because this one has so tricks up its leaves. Anyway I digress.......

So good luck to everyone!!! And to all my #twudygroup friends no matter what happens dont give up. We are going to get through it!

No Pain No Gain

This study tip is brought to you by determination.

In order to succeed in life you have to put your all into it. If you know your not going to be putting 100% into something why bother? You know the saying nothing in life comes easy? Well this is one of the things. Don’t expect everything to be a walk in the park. You have to work for it. If your having sleepless nights and misery I think your moving along just fine..LOL. But seriously nothing worth fighting for comes easy so be determined, and be focused.

I often come across people who want the designation but don’t want to do the work. Either their journey will be very long, or their journey will be very short. I know at the end of the day my journey will be successful and I know that all the hours of studying, venting, ranting/crying will be worth it.

I hope this post has helped someone out there who thought about giving up, because please don’t. If one person passed this test, so can you!!

Just think the passing score is 75, not 99. So you need to be familiar with the material not an expert. Think about being an expert when you pass but now just thinking about getting those 75 points.
