    Hello all. I start studying for FAR tomorrow as my first section. I have the monthly Ninja subscription and Becker. I was looking at the Ninja Framework and it says to read the book cover to cover before even looking at the MCQ. Is this the way to do it or should I read a section/chapter and then do the MCQ? How should I use Ninja and Becker together? Should I use one material more than the other and the other as a supplement? I don't feel like I get anything from watching videos so should I just use Becker for the extra MCQ, SIMS, & practice exams? Should I read the Becker book? I want to test Sept. 10th which gives me 9 weeks at 25 hours each week. Week 7 I'll be on a mother daughter trip so my studying will be limited to 1-2 hours a day vs the 4 hours under the ELL plan. I figured I could spend the first 6 weeks getting through all the material. Week 7 as a slow intro to the review then weeks 8 & 9 as a full review. What are you thoughts? Does the timeline seems ok? What materials should I use and how?


    It will be very confusing to read all the book and then starting mcqs
    I recommend one module at a time from Becker, listen to the lecture and study it and then do its mcqs.

    Far material is really long and u will forget it when u reach its half. It's better to take it slow.

    It's not gonna be easy, but it's gonna be worth it!

    I started passing when I switched to the ninja method. The only change I made, was I did power through the the book and took notes, but I would do about 5 to 10 mcqs from Becker during my lunch. After I finished the book, I did non stop ninja mcqs.
