REG Down, Now on to FAR

I took my REG test on Monday, and I think the multiple choice was pretty painless but like always I struggled a bit with the simulations. I don’t know if it is just me, but I think the majority of the simulations seemed completely random!

On the bright side, I was able to basically pull all the answers for one simulation from the internal revenue code tab, it took some extra time but that tab can become handy in sticky situations! Does anyone have any good tips about studying for and/or succeeding on simulations?

Now time for a quick 2-3 day break and back to the books to study for FAR. I am really looking forward to studying with Roger CPA Review course this time… he seems really energetic and hopefully can make the boring sections of FAR (not sure if there is really any exciting parts) less painful to get through. I am putting myself on a tight schedule this time as I will only have 5 weeks to prepare before taking the exam!

Before I go, I had a quick question for everyone… What does your study plan look like the last couple days before a test? I would love to get other people’s opinions! I always feel like that is cram time for me, but sometimes I think I just burn myself out and it isn’t the best use of my time.

Good luck to those who have tests this week!

My last few days I do nonstop MCQs. Review all answers, why it's correct and why it's wrong.

I would read my notes in the morning, do MCQ in the middle of the day and finish the night with more notes. I also rewrite all my notes in the final week to be sure I did not overlook anything. The day before the exam, I'd do around 20-30 MCQ and watch a movie before bed. GL!

By the last couple of days before my exam I would be totally toast. By this time I've worked a ton of multiple choice questions and am answering some of them from memory and not skill. My primary review program was Kaplan and I followed it to the letter but I also borrowed Gleim from a professor at school. The last 3 or 4 days before my exam I would test my knowledge of the material by working 10 mc questions from each section in the Gleim book. Doing this gave me a good idea of my weakest areas and I still had time to go back over these subjects. I wish you the best and hope to see some happy news after the next score release. D.
