I didn't do the BEC-1 questions yesterday like I had planned. I was plain pooped and took an evening to kick back and relax.
It was good to hear from others in my class that they had many of the same issues I had on the REG exam. I cannot explain why we all take comfort in our collectively shared misery, but it really does help to be around others that are going through this as well.
The BEC-1 lecture was pretty simple and straight forward. I did fine on the MC questions in-class. I'll see how I do tomorrow on the questions. The lecture was not as boring as reading the material made it out to be. I did read the material after sitting through a 3 hour test, so I don't suppose I should be relying on my judgment that day.
I've gotten several emails in the past week from people reading this blog. I am surprised that anyone is or has actually read anything I have to say. I'm always glad to give pointers where I can (without running afoul of disclosure issues of course). I started this blog so I could track my time and mood throughout the process and to have at the end of the process a detailed record of how I did things. I find it a bit comforting knowing that others are going through the same issues I am and that I might be able to help or reduce those issues for others. If you have questions feel free to email me.
Also, in my links section to the right is a link to www.another71.com. It is a great resource for those working through the CPA exam. I have found the collective suffering we are all going through to be calming. There are a ton of really smart people there using all sorts of different study materials. Everyone there is extremely patient and helpful with so many things related to this exam.
