Wish me luck?

It stands for Financial Accounting and Reporting for the Certified Public Accountant exam. If I pass I get 18 months to pass the other 3 parts.

And if I fail...I will be studying even harder for next time I guess lol.

Good luck. I've never used my accounting degree and really can't imagine ever using it.

Thanks. Accounting degrees are helpful and pointless at the same time I think.

It's a pain in the ass to get your cpa. But I'm in one of the few occupations where I meet the requirements to get it, so I thought I should take advantage of that opportunity. Plus my employer is paying for 80% of it so long as I pass all 4 parts in the 18 month period.

If nothing else, it'll make for great resume padding.

Definitely worth doing if they're paying. My girlfriend recently passed all of them. Not only did her company pay for her first attempt at each exam (and it only took her one try), they also gave her a 5 bonus for passing within the first year. Perks of working at a big company, I guess.

I'm not sure really. I felt good about some and confused about other questions. I'll find out on Aug 25 if I passed. If I didn't pass I know what I'll need to work on and will take it in the beginning on October.

And wow Squire. Your girlfriend must be pretty smart lol. The passing rates for those exams are between 47%-55% roughly. That's great for her.

Thanks Thrax. I wouldn't say worthless. This is a lot of work and sometimes I wonder if it is worth it.

I did pass though guys! I got an 80 and you needed a 75 to pass. So I'm pretty fucking pumped right now

Did you celebrate by eating the corners off of the results? I'm not sure why, but that was a thing when I was in college.

Lol no I didn't Deuce. That wasn't a thing where I went to college. I celebrated mostly by deleting the screenshots I took of all the wrong answers I did on the m/c questions and deleted the progress test scores I got while studying. It was close to 50 screenshots I think.

And than you Thrax.

Yeah she's pretty smart but she also studied her ass off. No social life for months. Most of her friends were doing the same thing though so she didn't miss much.

Congrats on passing FAR, and good luck on the next three. You definitely don't need to do it the way my girlfriend did, she just wanted to be done as fast as possible and before work got too crazy.

Thanks. Yeah it's crazy how boring life is while studying this stuff. I'm at work an hour before to study, study at lunch, and stay an hour late to study. Plus I get up around 6ish on sat and sun to get studying in. I still try to have a life, but it isn't easy
