    is the notes enough of a study tool to use along with the MCQ and reading the MCQ explanations?

    or do you recommend me getting the ninja book? or becker, roger, etc. book for FAR?

    I don't understand how people only use the notes, or notes + MCQ explanations.

    I 100% recommend the book to people. It's thorough and provides everything you need. The notes is meant to be supplementary from what I understand. So if you just finished school, or you feel really comfortable with a topic, then you could get away with just using the notes.


    For me, the Ninja Notes were a supplement to FAR. When all the craziness of FAR seems overwhelming – you can go to the notes to get a nice baseline of what's important, the basics of that section and then go attack the mmaterials.

    I would highly recommend a book in conjunction. I've not used Ninja Book. The Becker book was sufficient but not perfect.

    Notes to get a high level overview, book to get details, MCQ until your eyes bleed and then notes again to keep it all together is a pretty good combo.

    I also recommend in advance:
    * Look at the actual FASB conceptual statements – that comprises much of the authoritative source
    * Get financials for a) your favorite big charity, b) your favorite public company and c) your favorite local government like a city. Review the financials. If you can understand these you are better off than Becker or anyone else telling you what's in there.

    Needs Advice

    @PubMaster Here is a question I have for you. How do you utilize the book? Read through it one time, two maybe? Read a section then do MCQs along with it? Other then an initial read through, I found it cumbersome to sift through a textbook again. How do I go about using the book more properly? FAR is enormous and takes forever to get form start to finish. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    I HAVE a life now.
