So I took FAR this past Sat and pretty sure, I did not pass. Should I continue with FAR until I pass or should I move on to REG as I have heard REG is a beast and after I take REG then go back to FAR? Possibly use 2019 to pass both FAR and REG! Any suggestions would be helpful.

I'd start on AUD after FAR. You should get your FAR score soon and then you can double back to FAR if you fail.
AUD has the most in common with FAR so its the logical stepping stone.March 12, 2019 at 9:27 am #2261910
Thanks @Recked! My thought process to take REG next is, if i pass FAR and AUD then I can potentially lose credits on either one if REG takes me multiple times 🙁
It seems most struggle with REG if they are not in tax daily (Like me!).

Like what Recked said, start studying for AUD until you receive your FAR Score. For me I wouldn't have passed AUD if I didn't have FAR still fresh in my mind. Most people who pass FAR always feel like they failed so you never know. If you did fail FAR then I recommend you keep trying until you pass. Although which subject is the hardest is subjective, most people can agree that FAR has the most material, so getting that out of the way before the 18 month clock starts ticking is, IMO, the best way to go.
Good luck!March 12, 2019 at 10:46 am #2261997ReckedParticipant
Counter point to the REG struggle.
Take AUD in April and take Reg by June 10th, then you are not missing out on any REG chances.March 12, 2019 at 12:22 pm #2262123
Thanks everyone for the tips!March 12, 2019 at 12:41 pm #2262168bhunt815Participant
I operated as if I had passed the last section even if I felt like I might have failed. I just immediately started studying the next section. That way I didn't waste a month or more waiting for the results to come in.March 12, 2019 at 1:47 pm #2262255Jimmy DuganParticipant
The cure for post-exam anxiety while waiting that score out is moving onto the next one. The only way the next few weeks will be a waste of time is if you keep studying for a section you already passed. I agree with others, AUD is what I would move onto because of the overlap with FAR (especially with the AUD Sims). Mainly though, just keep moving, because the clock is ticking from the date you sat for FAR if you did pass.
