    Anybody else feel like they might have a mini textbook by the time they're done studying? I've taken so much notes for FAR. Way Way more than ANY other section.

    I had 2 notebooks and word document (additional notes 180 pages), but it was first section that I took and I feel like I over studied. I should've done only word document and focus more on reviewing again and again.

    FAR - 73, 78 (WileyCPAexcel 3,000+ MCQs, 50 SIMs)
    AUD - 73, 81 (WileyCPAexcel 3,000+ MCQs, 40 SIMs)
    BEC - 71, 71,
    REG - 84 (WileyCPAexcel 2,000 MCQs, 15 SIMs)

    This is why re-writing is an important step…you spend all that time on notes…good idea to re-write them and re-absorb them.

    I've exceeded my quota of hyphens for the day.

    I would highly recommend having less than 10 sheets of reference material MAX. Any more than that and you are going to overload yourself when you are reviewing notes or using them during practice.

    Notes are great, but practice is key. Crank out MCQs and sims as you are studying. Even if you start to memorize the answers you will be doing yourself good by seeing and thinking about the questions and answers.

    To sum it up, everyone is different but your number one way of retaining the information is by practicing it. I only had a handful of reference sheets during my study time. I NEVER looked back at my actual notes (I took notes because writing things down as I read helps me retain the information).

    At the minimum – write it down if you miss it. You'll miss it again later if you don't.
