CPA Exam Guest Blogger is back this week (after recovering from the stomach flu!) with her thoughts on studying for business law and a little humor.
Ugh! I have been studying the business law sections over the last week. Business law was my LEAST favorite course in college. Fundamentally business law makes sense; however, it is so technical and there are so many exceptions to the rules. I find myself getting caught up in the homework questions and also getting very frustrated. I have to remind myself to take a step back and understand the broader picture someone is trying to transfer a check or note to someone else. What unusual situations is the problem throwing in to make this more difficult?
I have gone back a few times to Roger’s lectures to re-watch them to ensure I understand the concepts. In addition, Roger’s notes are SO helpful in this area because he has included a lot of charts and examples. I have been writing out the charts as I go through the business law section. When I first started studying for the CPA exam, I started keeping a notebook of things I wanted to review right before I took the exam sort of like last minute topics to study. My REG notebook is getting big! I’m going to need lots of review time before I take the exam in January.
Finally a few weeks ago, the Roger CPA Review blog had a very funny post about favorite CPA exam tweets. I loved it! Recently I saw this on Twitter and had to laugh! I wanted to share with all of you this sounds a little familiar, am I right?
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
