    Hi, Another71. I am Josh. I would like to think I can be done with the CPA in a little over a week from now. I am a Grant and Contract Specialist in healthcare for a FQHC in New Mexico. I've been at the CPA off and on for over 9 years. I graduated from college in 2000 and graduate school in 2003. I took the PHR because I thought accounting was not for me. I lost that for lack of the right level of experience. I took some accounting courses after being in the “real world” and seeing the market for accountants. I worked in public accounting but more than over 7 years ago being one of the guys who didn't want to be forced to be a CPA and making some poor personal choices.

    I started the CPA while doing manual labor. I got 3/4 done at the moment. My hope is to pass #BEC for the 3rd and final time on the 1st. My main review is Becker. I have Ninja and some others. The biggest areas that I want to understand better are cost accounting and finance despite achieving securities licenses (more for trading than analysis). I'm also trying to balance family, work and this exam.

    There's some good free resources out there. I'm not sure if it's worth spending any additional time on this close to exam day, but I read half of “Wealth of Nations” by Adam Smith for free on Spotify. It may be worth doing “J” in the Ninja framework for once (“Just rewrite notes”), although I am writing quite a bit with Becker. As busy as life gets, I still strive for daily MCQ's. Thanks for suggesting cpareviewforfree, Jeff. There's good stuff on YouTube and free webinars for the CPA. Some reviews offer free trials.

    Thanks for these threads, Jeff. I believe the CPA will be worth it.

    Hello

    Glad to see the study groups are back.

    – using Becker and will supplement with Ninja

    – 5 weeks until exam

    study plan – skim each module, listen to lectures and take notes, mcq for each module.  I’m saving mini exams, and sims for the end. This way I get through all the material and then will attack sims, non stop mcq, practice exam.

    I’ve been out of school for a very long time. It’s taking a little while to get my brain back in study/learning mode.
