I took FAR in July and came up short with a 69. When I studied, I had problems retaining the information as I read it so I relied primarily on MCQs and notes/research for wrong questions. I immediately scheduled the exam again for October and I am working on continuing to study for it.
My question is – I am wondering if Roger's Cram course might be a good investment at this time. I like his videos, and I had watched some on YouTube during round 1. One of his little songs made me laugh and it actually saved me on exam day. I have Wiley (which I don't like and really don't use much) and the Ninja package, but I'm thinking his videos might be helpful to get the stuff I missed last time.
Any advice on this? I appreciate any input! Thanks!August 26, 2016 at 4:10 pm #822171AnonymousInactive
Hi! I actually used Roger Cram for FAR in addition to Ninja Audio/MCQ and I found Roger's Cram to be extremely helpful on understanding an entire process such as the Statement of Cash Flows. However, even though it's a cram course, it still takes time to get through and to truly understand (more than the actual 15 hours of the videos), so just keep that in mind.
However, with your score, I personally would do some more MCQs to zone in on the topics that I'm weakest in and then watch the cram lectures pertaining to those topics. And then whatever else you can watch, do that if you still have time before your retake.August 26, 2016 at 4:19 pm #822180
Thanks for the feedback! I have about 5 weeks before I'm scheduled to battle it again so I was thinking I could use the cram as a review of sorts – just start from the beginning and cover it all. I think I have plenty of time to do that, plus hammer out MCQs. My goal is (obviously) to take it one more time and call it a day. 🙂August 26, 2016 at 10:50 pm #822439CMParticipantAugust 26, 2016 at 11:11 pm #822445
