    I am scheduled to take the FAR exam on the 28th leaving me today and tomorrow to study. I am overwhelmed with the material, and feel like i have tons more to study, but i don’t want to reschedule. Should I go through my notes and get down the topics as best as I can or should I do as many MCQs as I can? I am preparing with Becker. I have not done any final exams yet. Should i consider that too? FAR has too much material!

    I also have the Becker Final Review program… should i focus on that material over the text? Any advice is much appreciated!

    Please Let Me Pass

    Definitely focus on the MCQ rather than the notes. You will be killing two birds with one stone if you do the MCQ's.

    FAR: 92
    REG: 94
    BEC: 89
    AUD: 1/07/11


    The Final Review MCQs/Sims are useful. They're pretty tough and most of them are new.

    FAR - 7/26/10 - 95
    AUD - 8/10/10 - 88
    BEC - 8/31/10 - 88
    REG - 10/15/10 - 95


    Hey preparing,

    how'd it go??????????

    IL - BECKER=============> DONE
    REG - 80; FAR - 65,79; AUD - 53,78; BEC - 71,68, 75 (used becker and yaeger for 3rd BEC)Ethics 95



    Magic 8,

    I must say that I was really freaked out the few days before the exam as you already know. I felt like there was so much material and that I would never get through all of it. I didn't take any final exams before taking it. The night before the exam, I got to a point where i was not really feeling anything and took a shower and slept. Yesterday, I went in to take the exam and the exam is not as wordy as the becker mcqs. I felt like some things i knew and some i didn't (esp the govt acc and nfp questions). as far as testlet 2, 3 i couldn't really tell it was getting harder or easier. i must say i marked lots of the questions to review. but i spent about 50 min on each testlet and had plenty of the time for the sims. The sims, there were tabs where i just couldnt get it to work, but moved on. i think i went in with a pretty relaxed attitude of if i don't pass, ill just take it again (although it would suck to study for the beast again). i walked out of the testing center really not knowing how i felt about it. i guess only time will tell. now that its done, im not going to think about it until i get the results.

    i have begun studying for reg. i see that you passed magic8! any advice? how do you recommend studying for this?


    I did all the mcq and the exams. I dont have becker final review. I DID let me reemphasize that DID watch a webinar on Club 75 that went over like kind and 1231 1245 1250 assets. WHICH WAS A BIG HELP because becker didnt do such a great job explaining that. I also read jeff's notes and used the flashcards. to be honest i didnt know how i did. i couldn't tell if the questions got harder. b – law was there barely on the exam and to top it off my grandpa's funeral was 4/19 and i took the test on 4/17 and he was my favorite person ever. so i didnt know if that would affect me or not. But I passed!!! Got an 80. So I guess tim gearty's pink dresses must have stood out in my head. LOL you will understand when you get there!!! I did practice the WC's on becker. One of mine on my test was pretty darn close to what becker had in their review. so i was excited about that. Lets i started studying on 3/1 and I watched that webinar on friday 4/16 so it stuck in my head. that gave me plenty of time to study. I did a chapter a week and it worked for me. good luck to you!!!

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup.

    Do you have a peek at this web-site any
    solutions to stop hackers?
