    I'm so nervous for tomorrow. I'm reviewing my problem areas and feel like I'm remembering nothing. Leases, pensions, and governmental stuff are killing me. I'm doing practice problems and still missing a bunch. I've been studying for so long but don't think I reviewed these things as much as I needed to given how complicated they are to me. Any last minute tips? Did anyone else feel this way going into the exam?

    Review only the basics and give your brain time to rest, it's gonna help you a lot, also I would do quick review before the exam (only the basics). During the exam follow your time management strategy and don't waste any time. Good like my friend, you will be fine! I'm gonna retake FAR in October, I failed with 73.

    FAR - 73, 78 (WileyCPAexcel 3,000+ MCQs, 50 SIMs)
    AUD - 73, 81 (WileyCPAexcel 3,000+ MCQs, 40 SIMs)
    BEC - 71, 71, 74 My life is a fucking joke.
    REG - 84 (WileyCPAexcel 2,000 MCQs, 15 SIMs)

    "Of course it’s hard. It’s supposed to be hard. If it was easy, everyone would do it.

    I spent my last days really hammering down on non-prof/governmental and it saved me since a good chunk of the test contains a lot of it. Make sure to go over the new rev rec rules and leases as well. The key is to carefully read each question and look out for qualifying words (except, best, etc) and for the SIMs whether or not a positive or negative integer needs to be inputted. Attention to detail is huge.

    AUD - 81
    BEC - 87
    FAR - 80
    REG - 82

    Thanks everyone for the advice! Left feeling not too bad about it but who knows if that's a good or bad sign.

    I didn't even read your advice until after my test but the point about knowing to put in positive or negative integers for the sims was so relevant. One of my sims I almost submitted and then realized I had put in the opposite signs it had asked for, I was so glad I caught it!

    Don't be nervous. Just keep working and think positive. You will pass.

    No one feels confident taking far. Relax.

    AUD - 85
    BEC - 92
    FAR - 84
    REG - 88
    I've found an anomaly in the Space-Time Continuum. NASBA and the AICPA are in the 19th century. They use slide rules to score the exam, and then they send the scores by Pony Express to the State Boards. That's why it takes so long for them to do a score release.
