I feel good this week, and I have a lot of motivation moving forward! I know this may sound crazy, but I have decided to study for the RTRP. I have decided to pass the RTRP exam because it is focused more on individuals. Studying for the RTRP will also help me be better prepared for the EA exam. I feel like it will help me to have both certifications! It also includes the CE credit hours that I need. My plan is to pass both tests by the end of the year. However, if it comes down to the wire, I will push the EA exam back to late January. I am very excited and very motivated, especially now that I have a date in mind. I will let you know in a few weeks if I recommend this path or if I’m just in way over my head.
I went back to Study Unit 9: “Business Property, Related Parties, and Installment Sales.” For some reason, this study unit is just not sticking. I understand the key concepts, but the little details are what keep getting me. When I finish studying, I feel good about it. When I go back to review it, I feel discouraged because I get it wrong. Study Unit 7: “Basis” is the same way. When I finished studying it, I felt good about it. When I went back to review, I tended to get those questions wrong too. I haven’t gone back yet to re-study it, but I plan to do that this week. I hope to get the last few study units finished this week. That way, when I am studying for the RTRP, all I have to do is review the material, concentrate on my problem areas, and try to get all the details down!
I hope your studies are going well!
