Last August (2012) I studied FAR for about 12 weeks. However, my study time was not the most productive, and I would take multiple days off in a row from studying. As a result, I failed FAR with a 70. I took the Audit portion after that using the same strategy and fail with a 68. Since I was in the middle of wedding planning at this time, I decided to take a break from the CPA exam and allow myself sometime to get my outside life figured out before I took on another section. Now I am happily married and had the amazing wedding I was planning for, and it is time to get back to the grind. I am thinking about trying to take all 4 parts of the CPA exam within a 2 month period starting with FAR. In order to do this, I am going to have to cram FAR into 3 weeks. Is this possible considering I have already taken it (even though it was almost a year ago), and failed by only 5 points? I felt like studying for 12 weeks only to fail was a waste of my time. The way I look at it now is, if I fail and only studied for 3 weeks then thats only 3 weeks of my life lost, not 12. Is this a bad way to look at things, and is it humanly possible to cram for FAR in 3 weeks? Also, has anyone else tried this strategy, and if so how did it work for you?
