So I backed myself into a bit of a corner and had to schedule REG 2.5 weeks after taking Audit in order to try and make the 18 month cutoff. I have taken 3 tests and passed 2 of them with no problem (waiting on Audit), so I feel like I have a process that typically works. Unfortunately, I don't have enough time to go through the full shabang that I usually do (taking handwritten notes on each module, cumulative review and MCQ's after every 2 units, all in Becker). I typically over-study in order to feel confident going in, but what's going to be the most efficient way to move through the material in such a short period of time? Are there certain areas I should focus on/ others I should just bag?
Also to note, I have been working in tax at a public firm for about a year now, so I am comfy with the big picture items. It's the details/ more obscure items that have me nervous.

Pull in the bus law as you study tax – it is the only way to get it all incorporated in time without forgetting what you already studied. Know basis for each business entity type.November 18, 2020 at 3:39 pm #3159807fsugirl2005Participant
@Scoon We are in a similar situation. I have REG and BEC left, taking both on 12/21 & 12/26, respectively. I am scared because now work is picking up for me and my NTS expire at year-end. I'm struggling trying to get all this material in. Not sure if I can do it. I work for myself so I can flex my schedule but when you have to kick out financials to boards on a deadline, it's not easy.
Good luck to us!November 18, 2020 at 7:10 pm #3160011
Ah yes the business law will need a refresher for sure… will be sure to spend a good chunk of time in there, and probably just reviewing the rest as well as I can! Thanks!November 18, 2020 at 7:12 pm #3160014December 1, 2020 at 6:31 pm #3171810Professor FarnsworthParticipant
That is tough no doubt but I it's doable with the right tools. Roger has a cram course which basically is like the regular long lectures but more condensed so you can go through the material really fast. If you'll do the cram course and do all the MCQs then you can pull it off, however that part is up to you, the cram course is amazing but you also need to put in the work. Like Roger always says “IF YOU STUDY, YOU WILL PASS”, keep that in mind when you feel stuck or lack motivation. Good luck!
