    how can you say that you're confident enough to take such risk?

    I'd like to share some insight about this matter and I hope it'll help you to decide whether to take the exam or not this October.

    My answer to your first question is this: there are lots of things to consider in order for you to come up w/ the decision to take the upcoming board exam, and the most important thing you have to consider is your knowledge about the subjects. What have you learned after you take the review? did it go well for you? have you managed to assessed your level of understanding about the concept in each subject included in the board exam. You and you alone can answer these questions. Are you well verse enough to understand the concepts to pass the board exam?.

    Preboard results: It is very important to know that you did your best on this exam because it is a pre assessment tool that they use to know how good a student performed during the review. I treat this examination as a challenge. I've always wanted to be included in the list of top 10 performers in the review center. What have you felt when you saw your name in the top 100 students who got the highest score in pre-board exam? How much more will it glad you if that exam was already the actual board. Take this examination as a challenge. There are students who manage to get in the top 100 list during the pre-board but still failed in the actual because of one thing. They've experienced mental block because of the time pressure or maybe because of the tense that they felt during the actual board.

    Preparation: We have all the time to prepare no matter how short the time is. It's only a matter of time management. Do the review wisely not hardly. You can't force you brain to swallow all you've read or all you want to know in a day. Review in chunks and reward yourself in every new thought that you've learned. Don't be contented that you've read your books once. You must familiarize yourself w/ the concepts.

    How can you say that you're confident enough to take the board?: trust you're guts. If you think that you've performed well in the review, you're always on the list of students with highest score and you known most of the concepts and how to apply them in different type of scenario, well what do you expect? you might already have the chance to pass the board exam. But take note that examinees don't just strive to pass but to be one of the topnotchers.

    So do you're best, study wisely and ask for God's assistance.

    as my resources were limited, i decided then and there to take the boards. it was like, i was given the opportunity to review and i wasn't about to let it go wasted. yung mga 'di naman ganun kayaman yung parents, i think yun din ang main concern nila. so what i did was i gave it my all and it paid off.

    take na yan.. :)


    pag zero based like prtc sabi kahit 50% sa preboards may chance na daw sa board and it did work that way for me (Thanks be to God),.

    pray hard and have faith na papasa ka. you may not know all the anwers kaya for those items na di mo masagot, pray for divine intervention. (ako i prayed to St. Joseph of Cupertino)

    you will never be 100% confident daw (sbi Sir Ocampo) kasi you have to feel the need for God's grace so don't worry if feeling mo may kulang sa naaral mo..feeling mo lang yun :)

    advice ko lang wag magmadali sa pagsagot dahil believe me, hindi mo na ulit gugustuhin na umupo sa upuan kung saan ka mag eexam (c/o Sir Africa) so might as well do it slowly but surely.

    -wag kabahan. and after the first week, don't think about the subjects na natake mo na. look forward sa mga itetake mo pa. nakakaexcite ang BLT diba? chos lang. hehe

    and lastly, di mo naman kelangan malaman lahat ng sagot kasi 75% lang naman ang hinihingi sayo to be a CPA. :)


    Good luck and God Bless...
  • I also have a dilemma of to take or not to take. I'm currently taking a subject for the US CPA, and because my job demands a lot of time, I could not focus on my studies. Kaso if I withdraw this week, magbabayad ako ng $50.

    Palagi kong nakukuha 50-70% sa mga review materials (one take). I have the weekend to review everything all over again. Sana mag improve. Sa monday next week na! Isa pa sa pinakamahirap na exam from a philippine cpa perspective.
  • Sa MAY nako magttake given all the situations na sinabe ko sa family ko
    Mababa kasi preboard results ko and i think na mas magging okay preparations ko next time. Mejo nakakaguilty lang na bigla ako bumitaw.
  • To take or not take?

    what ever the results after the exam, YOU WILL STILL BE LOVED by your family and friends.

    kung hindi ka confident sa sarili mo, wag kang kumuha

    ngayon, malalaman mo naman yan kung kaya mo na base sa mga pre board exams, kung nagegets mo karamihan ng topics dun, dapat may confidence ka na to take the boards

    kung nakailang review ka na at hindi ka pa rin confident sa pagkuha ng exam or wala kang improvement, wag mo ng pangarapin maging cpa

    "Do. Or do not. There is no try."

    such a stupid advice. "wag na pangarapin cpa?" alam mo Hindi porket isang take ka Lang eh wala na silang karapatan. Sayang pinag aralan mo.

    agree me sayo abuzalzal... pero hindi naman sayang pinag aralan ni valorian.. masyado lang naging harsh.. heheh

    ang sa akin lang po opinion ko lang,,. Oo nga nakailang attempt ang isang candidate pero hindi naman nangangahulugan na wala na siyang karapatan para pangarapin ang pagiging isang CPA.. siguro masasabi ko na mas napangungunahan siya ng takot... saka i think impossible naman yun na wala siyang improvement if nakapagreview naman na siya twice or thrice..

    hindi basta basta lang ang course natin... bakit hindi na lang natin iinspire ang bawat isa? hindi po yung sa isang iglap parang tinanggalan mo ng pag-asa ang isang tao..

    hindi pala lahat ng nagiging cpa ay inspirational.. tsktsk wala lang parang nadisappoint ako.. :depressed:

    basa-basa at intindi na rin sa pinost ko

    kung nakailang review ka na at hindi ka pa rin confident sa pagkuha ng exam or wala kang improvement, wag mo ng pangarapin maging cpa

    aanhin mo pa ang ang pagrereview kung wala ka naman tiwala sa sarili mong papasa ka at kaya mo yung exam..sayang effort, pera at oras.

    try and try until you succeed ba o do it right the first time ang susundin niyong motto?

    sana nagtake ka na lang, pinatagal mo pa ang paghihirap mo. :lol:

    seriously, sana nagtake ka kasi wala naman mawawala. nakapag invest ka na rin naman ng time, effort at money. so why not take the risk diba? :)

    regarding naman sa pre board results, yes nakakatulong siya para ma-assess mo yung sarili mo pero wala namang assurance na ganun din makukuha mo sa actual. *okay*

    grabe naman po kayo Valorian, my kilala nga ako 10yrs na siyang nag rereview at nag tra-try ng cpa board exams pero sa bandang huli naipasa rin nya sa awa ng diyos kaya di po ako naniniwala sa sinasabi nyo na "wag mong pangarapin ang maging cpa" nasa tao naman yan kung kaya nya pa at my desire siya na maging cpa. sa mga nangangarap maging Certfied Public Accountant (CPA) ituloy nyo lang po yan basta my desire po kayong maging CPA marami kayong pagsubok na dadatnan pero sa bandang huli makukuha nyo rin yan. gud luk po sa mga future cpa's an god bless! :)

    relate ako dito..wala akong naipasang preboard, but God is so great, I made it this October through Him..

    ***** masasabi ko lang, you really cannot tell whether you will pass it or not, kung magtatake ka, its on your own free will, your own decision not merely because iniisip mo yung ibang tao na nagcacause ng too much pressure sayo...ang mahalaga wala kang pagsisisihan kahit anon man yung resulta.. pag nandun kana sa exam, wala kang ibang kakapitan, ikaw at si God lang ang kasama mo dun, hindi yung ibang tao na ikinappressure mo, hindi yung failures mo before, hindi yung kung anong ginawa mo sana before..andun kana nageexam, sigurado may mahuhugot ka sa sarili mo, at kapag umabot na tlg sa sukdulan, you always have a choice..PRAY :).. it worked for me..who else can say it won't work on you :)
  • I just took it... next week ko pa malalaman ang score.. thankful na ang mga hindi ko maxadong na aral hindi maxadong lumitaw.
  • However, it goes without saying that you'll have to prepare. And if you fail, take again!
  • Go to another71 forum and see how many people are failing but are still striving to take the exam.

    Tama nga ang poster above na take ng take! pero maganda na ring prepared.

    I received my score 85. Isang exam na lang ok na!

    Sir HenryV, I am awed by your score, 85; I bet you're in the top ten; in our time, when the passing percentage is 9-12%, with such a score you'd be a topnotcher. I am just an average student in college and largely unprepared to take the cpa licensure examinations. Since there was an 88% chance that we would fail (mas malaki ang tsansa na babagsak kami), we studied and prayed hard, though our reviewmates got the impression that we're a happy-go-lucky bunch. Anyway, we have nothing to lose (except the cost of review and taking the board), but everything to gain. (Hindi naman kami ini-expect na papasa, so there no pressure on us). But, boy!, we really did studyL With the aid of Divine Providence, we passed. (Some ladies who failed even cried why we passed.)There were seven of us in a group, three passed (including me) in the first try; two were conditioned and passed the next time around. Two didn't make it despite of several tries. There were also ***** laudes in our school who didn't make it. Again, having a positive attitude (to fend of the odds of failing) helps. Doing accounting and auditing work in real life is a breeze compared to problems in the academe; perhaps, because the data are all there and the system is in place. But you'd have to face threats, ill will and taunts from those affected by your work (especially in audit and comptrollership functions). It's been over three decades since I passed the board but I have no regrets though I am still enamored with engineering and physics. I've also made it a honorable and ethical profession, and honest source of livelihood.

    Again, I'm still impressed by your score.

    Actually, that score is still considered low in today's standard. Ang recognition dito sa US ay hindi based on the 10 examinees who got the highest score, but who passed the 95.5 average. Pag nakuha mo yung >95.5 average, makakareceive ka ng award called EWS award or Elijah Watts sells award. If you compute my average from my score already, you can say that I'm far from getting that award.

    Tsaka, compared to the Philippine CPA, you can take the subject piece by piece which I'm doing. Kaya mas idol ko pa rin ang mga filipino na nag pupursiging kumuha ng Philippine cpa exam kahit bumagsak na sila ng ilang beses.

    Tama ka. Nasa diyos ang awa, nasa tao ang gawa!

    Sir henry, ano po ang qualification para makapagtake ng cpa board sa US?
  • Sir henry, ano po ang qualification para makapagtake ng cpa board sa US?

    It depends kung what state ka nag apply.

    Generally, 150 Credit hours of study with minimum credit hours in financial reporting, business law and tax, business, audit and kailangan (google mo n *** kung ilan **** yung credit hours na kailangan). Usually, pag 5 year ang course mo pasok ka. May kakilala ako na 4 years lang ang course nila kaso 5 years ang assessment kasi 5 years curriculum daw sila.
