Enrolled in Review Course

May 14th, 2011 at 07:31 pm

So this past week I did something I have been putting off. I enrolled in a CPA review course.

Why have I been putting it off? A couple of reasons. The first reason is that the last one started 1 week after I graduated. After 5 years of working full-time and going to school at night, I wanted a break longer than 1 week. The second reason is that I am nervous. I'm worried I won't be able to pass.

To be honest, I like what I do right now, and am unsure I really want to be a CPA. However, it seems foolish to stop at this point. Also, my two bosses want me to take it and pass. They have both been very supportive of my educational goals, and a few years ago volunteered to start paying my tuition. Maybe I just have performance anxiety. Stick Out Tongue

So I am starting the course June 11th. It is from 8 - 5 on Saturdays, and will take until the end of October. Doesn't that sound like fun?

If I do become a CPA, my earning potential will shoot way up. My intention is to avoid lifestyle creep and get myself in great financial shape.

Wish me luck with the course and that pesky exam!

    My son majored in Economics, and he now wishes he had majored in Accounting. He says his employment opportunities would be so much better.

    I am sure you will have no trouble with the exam.

    Hi. I'm wondering how you managed to get through college classes and work full-time. I have been in college classes since 2000. I stop and then start all the while i'm working full-time. I have 47k in student loans and no degree. I have about 50 general credits.

    It was not easy, but I just made up my mind that I was going to do it. I took every course possible at my local junior college, then switched to my local state university. I typically took 2 courses per semester, plus summer classes, plus winter term classes. I took a few on-line, but mostly took them on campus. I tried to take classes on nights my kids were with their dad, but it wasn't always possible.

    What sort of degree do you want? Its important to decide and map out exactly which courses you need, so that you don't waste time, energy, and money on courses which don't put you closer to your goals.
