UFE Snacks

A bit of a light post today, but still important. The comp is a 5 hour exam and the multis are 4 hours. Each hour is more draining than the next and so is each day. Even if you haven’t been snacking when writing your exams during your study period I would advise you to bring something just in case. You don’t want to be getting hungry mid-exam. These days are more draining than your study period.

Have a good breakfast first! You’ll need the energy. I saw over on Twitter this article pointed out for some suggestions on good breakfast food. The exam should start at 9 but there can  be (and often are) delays at the start and at the finish so your day could easily go 6 hours or more.

Last point, be considerate of everyone else. You’re in a room with a lot of stressed out people so don’t bring your overly loud and crunchy food nor food with strong smells.

Here’s a link to some good suggestions for snacks to bring on the UFE days to get you through.

Enjoy your weekend! Only a few short days left before you get this behind you and you get to move on with life.

  1. This reminds me of building a small convenience store on my desk while writing the exam. I exaggerate, but only a little.

Commenting Guidelines

I love open conversations. Casual is fine, professional is fine, but this is a community so anything abusive, demeaning or annoying will be removed at my discretion. Below is a guide to help keep you on the straight and narrow.

  1. 1. Use a name or alias. I understand wanting to keep your name personal, so make something clever up and stick to it. We can't tell each other apart if everybody is "Anon".
  2. 2. Remember the point. This is a community to discuss, debate and assist each other to pass the CFE or discuss other CPA things. Let's act like we're all the intelligent professionals that we are supposed to be.
  3. 3. No personal attacks. It's okay to disagree with opinions or advice but argue the point, not the person.
  4. 4. Don't be obnoxious. You should be proud if you are the next honour roll writer or work for a prestigious firm but don't be obnoxious by using it to feel better than others.
