Schedule time on your calendar. Slam some coffee. Bring a snack (if you get sleepy, chew...you can't fall asleep while eating). Use a focus technique like pomodoro. Listen to EDM (no lyrics). Reward yourself when you finish the sesh (food, beer, crank down, whatever)

Look around, everyone else does it. Do you want to be the one that puts it off and ends up failing? That motivate you?

Early wake up calls! Get up, get a good 2+hours in before work. Wake up early on the weekends and study, take a walk to break up the day and enjoy the sunshine. You’ll thank yourself next summer!

$5000. For me, it is $5000 plus exit opportunities.

BDO 1, I wonder if your office had considered maybe giving them time to study.

There is no good time to study. Buy some ear plugs, turn off your phone when you study, and get it done asap

Last time I check, BDO fired all associates in our office who are not working on their CPAs or has not passed any section after a year from requesting the firm-sponsored review course.

Damn
