    Hi I’m Danielle.
    Planning to take FAR mid-November
    I’ve taken it before but was not even 50% done studying. This time will be different.
    Strongest area: probably financial statements and not for profit
    Weakest area: bonds and derivatives

    Hello everyone,
    This will be my first attempt at FAR. Approximate date of the exam is mid-November. I am most comfortable with the State and Local Governments section and my weakest area is income taxes. With a little more than a month left, I still average about 68 on MCQs. Desperate.

    2. I’m most comfortable with the Non-Profit section in FAR.

    Hey Everyone,

    I'm hoping to take FAR early December but depending on how studying goes, I may push it to January. I'm most comfortable with Conceptual Framework and I totally don't understand Bond/Interest/Note Payable stuff. Ugh!
