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.May 8, 2017 at 1:47 pm #1552081M123Participant
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.
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.May 10, 2017 at 3:02 pm #1553260limousine ridin’, jet flyin’ son of a gunParticipant

@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.
