I scrapped my Bisk book that I had for FAR too once I got my score. I used that and the test bank. I felt really prepared and thought I had done really well or at least passed. Nope!
This time I wised up a bit. For REG I am using Ninja Book, notes, flashcards, & MCQ test bank. I'm also using an app on my tablet that was free but it has a matching game for REG terms and definitions & concepts. Its kind of hokey, but I have been out of college for almost 3 years so some of this is like Greek to me. However, I do tax prep every year and I work for a company that owns a partnership and 2 S-Corps. That means I'm not totally rusty yet, but day to day work is so different than applying the concepts to the test.
Looking at your scores, I have faith that I can pass FAR too on my next rematch. Keep up the hard work. 🙂March 12, 2015 at 7:34 pm #657044DantrickParticipant
I did the 500. Did only one other person do 500? I'm still doing mcq today. I will do mcq until they kill me, which they probably will.March 12, 2015 at 10:25 pm #657045
Looks like it was just you and me , Dantrick. The MCQS fried my brain (See my post from last night above) but it showed my that I'm capable of doing so much more than 30-50 a day. 🙂
I rooted for you the whole time. Be proud that you got them done even with your kiddos being sick. You're awesome! 🙂 I'm back to writing out my ninja notes for now but I'm trying to finish every study day with 50 or so MCQs related to the topic I studied. This challenge was the kick in the pants I needed. Let's crush this round of exams! LolMarch 13, 2015 at 12:08 am #657046DantrickParticipant
Thanks RJG you are so kind. Good luck to you also.March 13, 2015 at 3:08 am #657047
Good lucky to you too.
May the odds be ever in your favor. Lol
Earlier, I didn't mean we were the only ones who finished the challenge, just that we were the only ones so far. Hopefully 8 more people come forward so that everyone could get some days of blitz like Jeff promised. Im hoping that we werent the only ones who spent endless hours doing mcqs.March 13, 2015 at 5:15 pm #657048
Looks like it was me and you, Dantrick. Too bad. If just 8 more people had done them everyone could have had 10 free days of blitz. But at least we got some serious studying in. 🙂
9 other people posted in this thread too, I wonder if they attempted the challenge too.
Oh, well. I guess we are just well practiced for the next challenge weekend.
Best of luck to Dantrick and everyone else studying for these brutal exams. 🙂March 13, 2015 at 5:21 pm #657049MartinParticipant
I did 370 MC questions with an average of 82.March 13, 2015 at 5:29 pm #657050titoav15Participant
I did 403.. well I triedMarch 13, 2015 at 5:50 pm #657051
Martin, I'm impressed with your average – I'm working my way up there. I still have almost 2 months before my test so I have plenty of time. Thats impressive though to score that high on so many questions.
Titoav, Over 300! Thats still great. I never even came close to that many the last few challenges that I tried. This was my first time ever meeting the goal.
Keep studying & the best of luck to both of you. 🙂March 13, 2015 at 11:21 pm #657052LillianParticipant
I was able to do about 100 MCQs. I haven't hit the review phase yet. I'm actually reading a section at a time and then answering the corresponding questions. I wanted to have more done but my mom canceled picking up my kids yesterday so I took the evening off (spending 7 hours at Barnes and Noble tonight to make up for the time off!). Congrats to the 2 that hit the mark that was excellentMarch 15, 2015 at 2:56 am #657053
Don't feel bad, I still haven't hit the review phase either. Sometimes things don't work out with the sitter and studying has to take a back seat. I really understand that because I have a 5 year old that is a major mommas girl. If she isn't occupied with something else, then I get nothing done. The only thing that let me get to the goal was that she has been playing with neighbor kids almost every day. Yes it is very noisy but it keeps her occupied.
Hopefully it will work out for you next challenge.
I do like your study style of reading a section then doing corresponding questions. I try to do that too but honestly, some nights I want to do notes, some I want to read, and some I want to do mcqs. I end up skipping around and trying to target my weakest topics.
Best of luck to you.
