Since the last time I blogged, I found out that I passed my REG portion of the exam

Hi Everyone! Since the last time I blogged, I found out that I passed my REG portion of the exam. Now just one more test to go, and then back to school! The last portion my exam (AUD) is set for February 7th (right in the heart of tax season), so hopefully that won’t cause any issues. I know a lot of possible candidates are concerned with the order of their exams. Since I decided to take the Becker study program, the order of my exams was chosen for me. Although, I won’t say that is a bad thing. In fact, following Becker’s schedule forced me to take FAR well before I wanted too, but imagine the relief when you find out you’ve passed. I would certainly suggest following the same schedule as ANY review course you are taking. Now, if you are doing self-study, I would suggest taking the exam in which you feel best about first (ie. you do tax work at your daily job than take REG or just completed an Auditing course in school than take AUD.) There is a great chance you will pass that exam on your first try, and NOTHING helps get the momentum going better than finally seeing some progress. On a final note, ONE exam a testing window is all I would suggest. With the amount of material that needs to be covered, you do not want to push yourself too hard. And let’s face it, exam fees are expensive! You have 18 long months to complete your exam so take your time and make sure you only have to take each exam once.
