Just curious if any one else is studying for the CPA exam or if any one has recently taken it and has any advise. I am scheduled to take the FAR exam in late January. But with everything going on I haven't been able to concentrate on studying and am afraid I won't pass it the first time.

Good luck on the upcoming FAR!

I really want to do this...but with a 15 month old daughter....and working a full-time job....I don't see the opportunity to study coming available anytime soon...

I work as a senior accountant though and have my masters degree! I would love to add this to my list of credentials!

Good Luck on your exam! I'm sure you will do great!

If you are already scheduled, I assume that means you've paid already?

My advice would be to study, give it your best shot, and if nothing else, treat is as a learning experience to help you the next time. End of January means you still have two months!

I took the test over 12 years ago now (yikes!) and the format has changed, so I have no relevant advice. I'm assuming it's still mostly multiple choice?

I have recently passed some securities exams, and I believe the format is similar -- in that case, with limited time, I'd recommend doing tons of practice questions, and always reading the explanation for the answer. That seemed to help me more than just rereading the books.

I know for my securities exams (and I think for the CPA exam under the old format) I saw test questions that were exact replicas of the practice exams.

You may surprise yourself -- I found the exam to not be as difficult as everyone said, so don't psych yourself out.

Good luck!

Thank you for the encouragement. I'm going to do my best and if I pass I will be extremely excited but if I don't it will be a learning experience and I will just retake it. Yes, that will mean more money but I am going to cram as much as I can until the test and pray that I pass. Thank you again!
