I am taking REG on 5/29 and FAR on 8/2. Assuming a few days break in between to charge my batteries and sleep, I will have almost 9 weeks to study for FAR.
My typical study plan for AUD and BEC was to read the entire Wiley or CPAExcel (mostly Wiley) book and take notes. Then I would work the Wiley questions as I went along in the chapters. When completely done with the first pass, I typed the hand written notes (it is a great tool to help with memorization). Last, I would work MCQ's and/or SIMS until my eyes bleed, at least twice through the lot of the questions. That worked amazingly well for AUD and looks to have worked equally as well for BEC---next week will tell.
On one hand, I don't want to change a working system but on the other, the book for FAR is 1,000 pages for CPA Excel (not sure how long Wiley's book is). I do have the video lectures from CPAExcel for FAR but do not want to waste time watching someone unless there's value added. I learn more via note taking than lectures (unless there's some magic to the CPAExcel lectures).
How does one most effectively study for FAR?
