    Hi CPA Candidates,
    Just received my score for FAR this morning and to my surprise it was a PASSING SCORE. YAAAAYYYYYY!!!!!!!. This was a retake from failing miserably with a 50 and received a 79. The first time I took the test my time management was awful and I did not complete the last testlet (3 task based sims (Yikes) and did not feel great (obviously a reflection of my score) about the sims I've completed. I believe its a common topic that the sims are extremely complex now with the new version of the CPA exam. I would advice anyone who is studying and struggling on the FAR Section, to get a great understanding of topics and understand rules. With Sims now 50% of the score it is pretty much impossible now to do poorly on sims and receive a passing score. I only used Wiley for studying material and instead of taking a tremendous amount of notes, (I never was a note taker, I always tried to understand and conceptualize a topic)I tried to take notes on exceptions.

    AUD - 82
    BEC - 77
    FAR - 79
    REG - 76
    This is a marathon not a 100 yard race!!!!!!!

    I might use Wiley. I failed four times FAR with Gleim


    @Lola23 – I failed FAR 3 times, and finally passed it back in December. If you can use Becker too I would recommend.


    This is encouraging. I'm currently using Wiley CPAexcel for FAR. Congrats on your passing score!!
