Focus: Accounting was always a bitch for me. Financial and managerial were 2 of the first business related courses I took in college, and financial was especially difficult. Remembering all of the different rules and how things were related was so tough for me. I was usually pretty good at rote memorization, but because I had no prior experience in accounting, it was completely different. The problem I had was I would try to cram 4 weeks worth of material into 3 days of studying. I learned pretty damn quickly that this would NOT fly.
