Which is best ? I am from finance background

Need hair advice for how to make my hair look ok for the office. I’m Korean, with thick, straight hair and I’ve never done anything to it - I never even blow dry it, and I’ve always worn it down. But through my 20s, my hair has gotten more and more coarse and frizzy. Insanely coarse and wirey with random kinks in the coarse strands — no hairspray, frizz cream, or oil has been able to calm it. I’ve tried deep conditioners too. I have 0 hair skills - are frizzy ponytails my only option?

I’m not sure why but people who lie so easily terrify me. It sounds hyperbolic but I feel like they could kill me. Maybe it’s because I’m so easily burdened with guilt and struggle with being dishonest. Part of me is also envious.


Bryan Cave comp?


Any recommended study material for CIPP and/or CIPM (still debating the two)?

Hey ladies, do any of you do beauty procedures such as Botox, fillers, etc? Is it useful for you?

How is it to be a GCR tax manager in EY? Do you work on any provision prep and audit engagements? What is the utilization %, admin and other non billing responsibilities? I am interviewing for Southeast office and wanted to get some perspective of what to expect.

How is REG actual exam compared to Becker?


How many "practice" questions are on FAR and what's the least amount of Becker that you did and still passed?

FAR, what a pain..that’s all


I am taking a 7 week sabbatical from work with a goal to complete 2 sections (REG & BEC). Do you think this is possible?


Hey everyone! I need to pass FAR by end of April before I lose audit. It’s my last exam!! Did anyone use i75 or Ninja as their main review course for FAR? I’ve been going through Becker and I’m having a hard time grasping the information. I’m trying to take the exam in 5 weeks so that I leave myself enough time for a retake if I need to. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!


Just got a general cpa email. It says that we can fill out an extension form for our NTS if it falls outside of April 1-June 30. It then goes on to say that state boards may not even accept; contd.

How do you find the time to study? I feel like I’m never caught up at work that when I come home I need to work more. And clean. And walk the dogs. And eat. and then it’s like midnight...


Becker expired. What to do? Cant extend it since i dont have an nts and dont want to pay for one yet but need to study.

How is the BEC being graded? Is structure/grammar more important than content? Is it 50/50? Also, is it graded by a computer?

Apologies if questions sound ignorant lol. I've taken CPA abroad and it didnt have a written communications portion to it so this is all new to me. My concern is not knowing how to write, but what to write if i forget parts of the expected answer.

Thanks for any insight!


Anyone testing in Houston? This is insane. My exam scheduled for the end of May was cancelled and I was able to reschedule for July. Really hoping that my rescheduled date doesn’t also get cancelled.


How much should I know about QBI for the REG exam?

I got a 72 on AUD after just getting a 74 on FAR. FML & yes that was my second time taking those exams. I got a 55 on AUD and a 39 on FAR the first time I took them courtesy of a live review course 🙄


If u failed with a 70 for REG on 11/27 and u were trying to retake it the first week of January, how much studying do u think u would need? I’m nervous I might have forgotten stuff over the last month


Ninja or Superfast CPA for final review? Just finished the FAR material and planning to sit on the 24th of Sept ( I work FT). I feel overwhelmed and like I’ve forgotten everything I studied so looking for an effective final review course/tips. Thanks!


Has anyone’s AUD (4.2) book shipped yet? I hear books started shipping on 6/3 but I haven’t received a shipping confirmation yet


Am using Becker and seem to be memorizing the MCQ’s. For those who’ve taken BEC, how close are the exam questions to Becker’s practice test MCQ’s?


What’s the most efficient way to study for FAR? I have Becker and I’m not able to remember the first chapters I learned because there is so much information. To go through all of the modules with the lecture videos, simulations, and MCQs takes forever.


Anyone have study tips for BEC? I just finished the lectures and am almost 2/3rd of the way thru the MCQs (my goal is to be finished with MCQs by 24th). Next should I tackle SIMS? Thoughts on what else I should focus on? Or what else I should go over?


How long will it take me to study for BEC and pass if I study full time 8 hours a day? A rough estimate based on people’s experiences

Taking new Reg next week. Is 50 minutes per MCQ testlet good? That will leave me 2 hrs 20 minutes to do Sims. With this new format I see a lot of people saying they didn't have enough time for Sims and I really want to avoid that, especially now that you have no way to tell how difficult the Sims will be as they're in 3 testlets.
