    I just took FAR on Sunday, it's my very first exam for this journey and I felt horrible, defeated. Going in I thought I studied hard enough for over 6 weeks, I should be able to get that 75. Nope, not at all, I cried during the break, most people said the MCQs are easier compared to Beckers', I actually ended up not doing well with MCQs, I flagged a bunch, like 8-10 each testlets, mostly Government, it's HARD, it's nothing like just high level, they go deep in detail with the Government part, I studied so much for other stuffs, I don't even have a question about Consolidation that I took days for it. Moving on, those SIMS got me headache, only doing okay like 3 SIMS, 2 SIMS completely dead like I blindly entered numbers and even the research SIM was ridiculous. I swear I study nothing, I felt stupid and I just looked at those SIMS blank out.

    Now, I know for sure I failed, I don't even think I will be able to look up my score in 2 weeks, it will be hard T_T

    I felt the same way. I took Far for the first time in over 5 years and my exam was experience was horrible. I was convinced I failed. The testlets didn't seem to get more difficult, even got the same question twice. I literally stayed in bed all weekend after testing feeling like a complete failure. To my surprise I passed. Hang in there, you might have done better than you think!

    FAR - 79
    AUD - 83 Exp
    BEC - 75 Exp
    Reg - 78

    I'm going to defeat this beast if it's the last thing I do!!

    I just tested today and had a similar experience. MCQs, just what you said. Research question was obscure. It was not an inch deep and mile wide. This was a retake, and I purposely studied everything well, even though I skipped “understanding” several topics and still got a 74 my first attempt. I wanted to make sure I was prepared for the possibility of a totally different exam and leave no stone unturned. It is depressing to think that I learned so much this time, really wrapped my head around so much more of the material, but my exam performance will not likely show that.

    AUD - 76
    BEC - 80
    FAR - 74
    REG - 78

    I used Becker to study, I like it, very organized and user friendly, I also went through Final Review for last week review before my exam 🙂
