I take FAR on Monday which I need to pass or I lose REG. I’ve been studying for about 8 weeks and mainly drilling Ninja MCQs, Audios & Notes (along with a few lectures here and there from Becker) which I have done in the past and found it extremely helpful. What is the best strategy when going through the MCQs? I’ve just been selecting new questions only because I wanted to get through all of them at first but I’m not sure if that’s the best strategy. Does anyone know if Jeff provides any insight on how to go about the NINJA MCQs? Im trending about 58% right now.December 5, 2019 at 1:54 pm #2830236ReckedParticipant
New questions would be my approach, and then once you've done 1000-1500 questions you should be able to easily spot your weak areas that you should refresh and focus on for more MCQs.December 5, 2019 at 4:51 pm #2830485
Yeah I’ve completed about 1,500 out of the 2,200 MCQs available. It is still hard for me to pinpoint which sections I am still having trouble with. Does anyone using NINJA MCQs have any suggestions? Should I just start cycling through all questions at this point? I think my trending score is lower than normal because I am only reviewing new questions.December 5, 2019 at 5:01 pm #2830494December 5, 2019 at 5:10 pm #2830509Jeff Elliott, CPAKeymaster
I would drill down into the blueprint and do them by topic or subtopic – start with your weaker areas first.December 5, 2019 at 5:22 pm #2830524
Thanks Jeff. Ninja MCQs have been more like a primary review course for me rather than supplemental. So you suggest I select questions from specific categories within each blue print area and cycle through those based on my own determination of what I need to work on? I assume my trending score is lower than I expect at this point because I have only been reviewing newer questions and even though I am learning from the questions I have missed I am not seeing them again which in turn is not showing improvements in my score. I hope my logic is somewhat correct or else I am a concerned that I am not nearly prepared enough.December 5, 2019 at 7:39 pm #2830740Jeff Elliott, CPAKeymaster
Yes – pick your weakest topics (you know what the first few are just by eyeballing them vs the analytics) and work backward doing sets of 20 until you feel comfortable with the topic and move on to the next one.
