    Today I took FAR for the 3rd time. Last time I felt surprisingly good and ended up with a 71.

    Today when I took it, I felt as tho I absolutely destroyed testlet 1 maybe 3-4 wrong at most even those felt like 50/50. I moved on to testlet two and it was incredibly more challenging. I marked about 10-12 questions that I felt could go either way.

    Fast forward to the sims, testlet 3 felt good mostly, testlet 4 was okay…testlet 5 WAS HORRIBLE, I really hope I am still able to pass.

    Testlet 5 was the testlet from hell. These were the most complicated sims I have ever seen and this was my third attempt…

    Is there a possibility I still pass, will one of the sims in testlet 5 be thrown out? I pray I do not have to retake this with the updates in january. I only have 2 attempts until I lose BEC.

    -sincerely a very shook candidate

    That doesn't sound bad at all. There is room to bomb a sim or two and pass FAR, especially if your MCQ performance is strong, which it sounds like it probably was, considering it was your third time. The pretest sim could be on any of the testlets.

    I don't know anyone who felt good walking out of FAR, whether they got a 75 or 95.

    FAR is by far the worse to study for. Currently studying BONDS and it's dreadful. At this point the motivation to keep going is so I wont have to study this again – I don't have time too. Ready to be DONE.

    The 2020 update isn't that bad. It certainly isn't Revenue Recognition or the new Lease Standard from a year ago. That was bad (for students and review courses) 🙂

    @CPA_Focused the GREATEST instructor on bonds is Bob Monette! Watch the FAR plus videos with him on bonds and you'll immediately see how manageable that chapter is.
