    So I failed FAR with a 69 and re-scheduled for April 14th. Anyone who has been in this similar situation, do you think that’s enough time? I went into the exam knowing about 98% of the flash cards from Becker. I felt very confident, barring the fact I was sick. I started over with the material and went through all of F1 yesterday. I def think it’s possible but would like some thoughts…thanks!

    What did you score report say? Weaker on Sims or MCQ or both? What topics were you weaker in?

    For framework and N-F-P comparable, everything else weaker. I actually felt great about governmental and not so good on N-F-P. I felt good about the complex topics, pensions, leases..I actually didn't have time to start 1 simulation. I went in to the sims with an hour and 20 minutes….my research question was impossible to find. I'm feeling like I just got screwed with the draw of the questions.

    You have enough time to start over but I would spend most of my time doing MCQs to get a better grasp of the concepts. Get the NINJA notes…a great tool that condenses the material into bite size chunks. Read notes, do MCQs. Re-write notes if that helps.

    FAR Passed
    REG Passed
    AUD Passed
    BEC Passed

    All aboard, this train's leaving. Next stop, TBD!

    okay, thank you @nextstopCPA. I decided I was going to re-watch the lectures and do all MCQs. The thing about Becker is when you go highlighting your so caught up in that you forget to listen at the same time…at least I did! So I'm feeling good about my strategy this time around. I will try and search on those ninja notes.
