I gave in and decided to push my exam back a week so that I would have a calm week to review and do MCQs. They wanted $95 to reschedule my exam. I decided to wait until Wednesday to decide what to do. If I can plow through the rest of my lectures and have all day Thursday (I'm taking a day off from work) to do MCQs and review, I'm going for it.

If I'm not done with my DVDs by late Wednesday, I'm postponing it a week. I'm ready to be done with this thing, but also don't want to rush and be posting again in January about an upcoming FAR exam.

FAR – Believe the Hype

This isn’t my first rodeo and although I’ve sat for – and passed FAR before, that was two years ago and I didn’t take anything for granted this time. All totaled, I probably spent over 100 hours studying and worked 2000+ MCQs. Still, I was surprised, but not overwhelmed by any means with what I […]

Old School Final Review

Since I bought myself (literally) an extra 10 days to study, I’ve set the software aside and have been methodically going through the Wiley book and doing Yaeger‘s recommended questions per section. I work the problem and then read the answer. Instead of flipping back and forth from the questions to the answers, I have […]

Brain Delay

I may have been a bit too cavalier about cramming for FAR. It’s one thing to go through all of your material…it’s another to actually review it. So, I hit the eject button and decide to reschedule to November 4. Easy enough, right? Maybe not. In my new e-mail confirmation from Prometric it reads RESCHEDULE […]

FAR on Friday

I worked until 1am last night wrapping up the Yaeger CPA Review FAR Disc 9 and wasn’t sure what today would bring. Twice within the span of 4 hours I had my payment info loaded onto Prometric’s site and a new date selected (November 4) and all I had to do was hit “confirm” and […]

This happens more often than you would think especially when you work full time and have a family life. When you schedule an exam so far in advance, you never know what may come up a week before the exam. It is a good idea to take a day off so you can get your mind focused on the exam criteria. I also think that cramming through the material close to the exam date will allow you to hold on to the info just long enough to apply it to the exam. We all know that the first step out of the exam room, you dump all of the info. Keep confident in yourself and you'll make it.
