    Hey guys,

    How often did you cumulatively review past material so it’s still fresh in your brain? And what methods worked best for you?

    REG - NINJA IN TRAINING

    My study method was different than most. I only studied cumulatively. I went through all of the Becker lectures for the entire book for each section before taking any MCQ tests, then did hundreds of MCQ's per week on the entire section. `So, cumulative tests were daily for me.

    AUD - 79
    BEC - 81
    FAR - 84
    REG - 78
    Becker Self Study supplemented with Ninja MCQ's for BEC and REG.

    I would recommend doing a cumulative quiz once a week as you work through the information.
    I waited until the “final review” phase of FAR and really regretted it as I was on that grind for 10ish weeks and forgot a lot of material from the earlier weeks.
    My final review turned into trying to relearn everything.
    _
    The other 3 exams I was targeting 3-4week study time, so there was no point in cumulative. The whole thing was cumulative.

    @Recked BEC is my first exam and I’m spending 9.5 weeks on studying, including 18 days of review. Looking at your study timeline, am I spending too much time? (I’m also working FT)

    Every person is different and as you progress through the exams you will learn what works for you and what doesn't.
    I did the whole soup to nuts recommended approach for FAR. By the time I got to REG and BEC I was cramming videos and then hammering MCQs.
    10 weeks with 18 days review is a decent time frame for your first exam, no matter which one it is. You need to learn how to study and what your strengths are.
    No matter if you spend 4 weeks or 14, you still won't feel ready.

    I'm taking my first exam tomorrow and the cumulative review is where I definitely feel like I went wrong with this first attempt. With the first couple weeks of study I was good about going back through previous lesson questions to stay on top of it but that didn't last long. Within the last week of me reviewing I have found myself recognizing a lot of topics but not remembering all of the important details.

    FAR - 70

    AUD - TBD

    REG - TBD

    BEC - TBD
