Alex writes in, Hey, Jeff, How are you? So, I took FAR a couple weeks ago. If I pass it, then I’ll be done. If not, I’m going to have to retake FAR, obviously, but also BEC. I’ve purchased some NINJA products for you in the past. I’ve used Rogers CPA Review as well. I probably shouldn’t even be thinking of what my study plan would be like if I didn’t pass.

Saba says, How far in advance did you study for the CPA Exam? In what order did you take the CPA Exam? I’m planning on finishing them all in 2018, but I have audit and special topics, like, consolidations and corporate tax. But I feel like I need to be constantly reviewing because I’m forgetting the minutia of the topics. I’m taking the Enrolled Agent exam, okay, first of December, so I can start working before I pass the CPA exam, but that’s the only part of the exam, so I feel like I should be reviewing way in advance.
