We are coming close to the end of the final testing window of 2011, and all I can say is Im exhausted!!! Before this last summer I dont think I put into this exam my 125%. Since May I have, and I need a break, like most of us probably do.
This past week Ive been battling a cold, and I cant seem to kick it yet since Im so exhausted. Its amazing of how much of a toll this exam takes on you.
I did catch a bit of a break this week. My husbands job site has moved, and hell be coming home during the week. Not every day. Hell still be away two nights a week. Ill take that over being on my own with the girls all week.
Ten more days until I sit for FAR, and Im working on MCQs, sims, reviewing Jeffs NINJA Study Notes, and I purchased Roger CPA Reviews CRAM course. Ive heard great things about the CRAM and have been debating whether or not to purchase it for a while. I hope itll tie up some loose ends and help me get past that 75 mark we all need.
When I sat for FAR over the summer, I ran out of time and practiced Jeffs 20 days to pass a part of the CPA exam and missed passing the exam by 7 points. Like Jeff has said, its not advised, but its the best practice to try to get your 75. I was mostly going on remembering what I studied back in 2009 when I passed FAR. So considering everything, I dont think I did too badly.
Now my goal is to pass FAR on November 25th and have it join my REG credit. Hopefully Audit will join them too!! I guess I may find out my Audit score next week. The question is: do I chance to look for my Audit score before I sit for FAR? Or do I wait till I come home on the 25th and look then? What would you do?
