    Hi everyone,
    This will be my first crack at any section of the CPA exam. I plan to take FAR late Novemver/early december. I'd say the topic I'm most comfortable with is converting cash to accrual or accrual to cash. The topic I'm least comfortable with is governmental. I still have a lot of material to cover though!

    Hi all.

    Just beginning my journey to CPA. I knew coming into it that FAR would be my most difficult section so I decided to attempt to tackle it first.

    I plan on taking the exam mid-late November. But NASBA is all backed up with high application volume so it may wind up being Q1 2019 ):

    I feel strongest and most confident in intercompany transactions as that's something I deal with everyday.

    However I am still struggling with the statement of cash flows and not for profit accounting.

    1. Planning on taking it early December, right before vacation.
    2/3. Honestly, I haven't started studying enough yet to even know what my best/worst topics are.

    I need to buckle down, but am dragging my feet.
