What made you interested in pursuing a career in accounting?

As I was going through the IT section of auditing, I had a question for myself and for other people if they want to answer.  What made you interested in accounting and why did you choose it as a profession?  I actually grew around computers and IT in general, so I've actually been very interested in that side of the field.  I've enjoyed my IT and MIS related classes in school and thought…See More

Last week of studying for Auditing

Hey guys.  After these last few weeks of studying and practice, only a week left until my first big CPA exam.  I'm using my time wisely to go over some of my weak areas (cycles and evidence).  Surprisingly, I felt pretty comfortable with reports, a section that I thought I would have struggled with.  I think it's mainly due to memorization being one of my strong suits.. with cycles and evidence, it's a lot more about applying and looking at the bigger picture.  Hopefully this last week I can…See More

Why procrastination is bad and how to defeat it!

Posted on April 24, 2013 at 8:30pm 2 Comments

Lets face it.  A lot of us are procrastinators and like to do things in the very end.  Although it worked for a lot of us in school and maybe even college, the CPA exam is a totally different beast in this regards.  Procrastination is just a terrible thing to do with regards to all 4 sections of the CPA exam.  I just want to emphasize a few points as to why it's bad and solutions on how to defeat it.

Why it's bad:

1. It encourages a lazy lifestyle.

A lot of us do indeed…

The last night before your exam?

This is more geared towards the people who have already taken an exam, but anyone is welcome to participate.  I still have a few days left until I take my first exam and this is mostly a question which will probably vary depending on your situation.  What do you do the last day before the exam?  Do you try to cram all the material and do a review?  Do you just take a practice exam or two?  Or like the picture above, do you just try to relax and try to have an overall fresh mind and try not…
