    I am a nervous wreck right now. I am currently studying chapter 5 in Becker and getting most MCQs wrong.
    I am scheduled to appear for FAR on 7th Jan and currently studying 8-10 hours per day to complete the material
    How should I improve my accuracy and allocate my remaining time? How much time do I set aside for review?

    This is my last section. I lose BEC if I cant get this done and hence the additional stress.



    A friend of mine studied this way and I am trying it for AUD and it seems to be helping. I am using Becker so may be different for your program but could give you an idea. There is so much in FAR btw and no way you will remember it all. Just try to remember your basic understanding and fundamentals.

    Watch Lectures
    Do MPQ
    Take notes on MPQ you got wrong

    Pretty sure I failed REG and will do that process for retake if I did. Try not to get frustrated(easier said than done) and don't give up!

    AUD - NINJA in Training
    BEC - 79
    FAR - 76
    REG - 78
    Always chose the road less traveled.


    I am currently studying the exact way you mentioned but worried that my accuracy in mcqs (after completing lectures) is not very high.
    50-60% (did not face this is in any of the other parts)



    Try not to let it bring you down. When I took Far in 2015, I was trending less than 50% the first time through. I allowed myself about 1.5 weeks after all the material for review and I was able to button everything up. Everything came together for me in the review phase. Work the MCQ's and write down your weak areas. Then work the weak areas over and over again until you're blue in the face, take slight breath, and work them some more. CPA = Constant Pain in Ass. You got this!


    FAR - 84

    BEC/AUD/REG - Let life get in the way...


    BEC - 80

    FAR -

    AUD -

    REG -
