Just got my NTS and I've been working ahead on my last MaCC semester in anticipation of studying early.
Is 7'ish weeks of mostly full-time studying generally enough for somebody without a good foundation? My undergrad was not in accounting so I feel like I kind of winged it during the pre-reqs and MaCC program.
If it's not usually enough time, then I have no problems pushing it back until after that June blackout period, just wanted to see what the consensus was.March 31, 2019 at 2:27 am #2289984SilentParticipant
Depends how fast you grasp the information. From what i seen people been studying anywhere from 8-10 weeks for Far. Obviously everyone is different so start studying and see how it goes.March 31, 2019 at 9:05 am #2290815ReckedParticipant
I was out of school for 15 years and my experience focuses on tax. I went for 10 weeks and 250 hours.
It's an interesting ride to re-learn all the things you forgot from school. 7 weeks full time would probably be enough, but depending on your focus and concentration levels you might not expect to get more than 5 or 6 good hours in a day before you brain doesn't accept anymore. 8-10 hours of focused concentration is probably unlikely.
Cumulative, cumulative, cumulative. One day a week be sure to hit up some cumulative quizzes so you don't forget the things from the early weeks. #1 biggest thing I would do over if I had to do it again.March 31, 2019 at 12:02 pm #2291175woobieParticipant
You killed FAR after 10 weeks, nice work!
Thank you for the input everybody. I will schedule for June 10th, knock out the last big projects this week and get started studying on Monday.March 31, 2019 at 12:24 pm #2291214ak_cpawannabeParticipant
Took me about 3.5 months first try for FAR and average of 3-5 hours a day. I couldn’t do more hours per day because I would just get brain fried. Failed first time with 71. Then second try took another 2 months I think and passed with 78. And I’m a really thorough reader. I read every sentence and did every mcq. Every person is different but these many months worked for me. There is SO much information to retain and become expert in. And I strongly believe you gotta feel you are an expert in this information to have a chance to pass. Good luck conquering this beast!:)
