Hi guys. As you all know it is recommended to show your formula in excel and there are few ways to do it. One is copy and pasting every cell that contains formula into another cell and just put apostrophe in front of the formula. This is time consuming.

Other way is to click on show formula but this shows the entire sheet as formula not specific cell as formula.

Please advise if there is another method?

1 for the skype session and another for checking the case.

Is this how it works? Is this the same for everyone?

IFRS 15 Ques
by Carissa Fernandes Send a message - 9 Sep 2018, 5:23 PM
Question: A company entered into a contract on 1 January 20X5 to build a factory. The total contract revenue was $2.8 million. At 31 December 20X5 the contract was certified as 35% complete. Costs incurred during the year were $740,000 and costs to complete are estimated at $1.4 million. $700,000 has been billed to the customer but not yet paid.

Any one know how to record the JEs ?

Do we have to submit at least 75% of cases in order to be qualified? what if we can't make it? 
I would appreciate your response on it.

IFRS 15 and IAS18
by Mike Mirabelli Send a message - 6 Aug 2018, 2:03 PM

Hi there,

I know that IFRS 15 is testable and likely will be tested in the CFE this year. Is IFRS 15 a straight replacement of IAS 18 or is IAS 18 still applicable ? Should I not bother reviewing IAS 18 at all?

How does one convert a completed Securexam practice case into Word/Excel format? I wrote the CFE last year and I remember there were a couple steps involved but I can't remember now. 

Please and thank you.

by Shahjahan Ahmed Send a message - 10 Jul 2018, 2:09 PM

Hi There,

I am planning to focus on day-1 to pass in this year and I would appreciate if you have any suggestions to prepare for day-1 exam.

Don't know Capstone-1 case is sufficient enough or not.

Looking forward to hear your expert advise.

Assurance Elective Exam (passed writers)
by Rajbir D Send a message - 23 Jun 2018, 2:47 PM

To whom have already written the Assurance Elective exam as part of the CPA PEP process... could someone bridge the gap on some common themes you found were tested and how different the 2 cases provided were? For example, were some topics tested on both cases or were both cases individually very different that there was no overlap of topics/ discussions etc

Anything that surprised you when doing the actual exam? Like time management issues and any other recommendations you may want future writers to be aware of. Thanks
