Ahhhhh more failure. I know that the AICPA has recently released scores and many people’s results were unfavorable. So if you have found yourself questioning whether or not it makes sense for you to continue on this journey-this video is for you. As many of you know, I’ve found myself on the failing side of the CPA exam process more than a few times. I too, have questioned whether or not the process would be worth it in the end. Now that I am on the other side of things I can honestly say that it has been worth it. This isn’t necessarily true for everyone though.
Thanksgiving is next week. How is that even possible? This year has flown by and has been crazy to say the least. Thankfully the holiday season is upon us. I’m here to remind you not to let up on your studying, though. If you have an exam coming up, studying during the holidays can be hard-but it is so important.
I have seen quite a bit of comparisons between the Enrolled Agent (EA) credential and the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) credential lately. I decided to do a breakdown of some of the main differences between the two to help you decide which is the credential for you. Today's video will define and describe what an EA and CPA does, give an overview of the process to getting the credentials, and compare the overall careers.
In today's video I am sharing some tips on how you can create an at home study routine even in a full house. Whether its siblings, your children, or even roommates- you can still find ways to have a productive study session. I completely get how hard it can be to get back into your rhythm once there is a shift, but you kind of have to do it anyway.
The amount of time that I spent preparing to fail the CPA exam is truly astonishing. Early on in my CPA journey I gave myself months to prepare for each section so that I could "take my time" with the material and be sure to pass. Rather than use this additional study time to actually study, I did things like create new Pinterest boards and search Beyonce hashtags on Instagram. I found myself going from a relaxed, "I have three months" to a panicked "I have three days."
