    I ended up missing AUD by 2 points (73) and therefore lost credit for FAR which I originally passed in 2017. After literally crying and being depressed for a week, I plan on taking AUD by the end of this quarter and hopefully with a pass on my 5th try, I can move on to FAR again. My question is, how long would it realistically take to study for FAR full time because I plan on taking some time off from work to tackle FAR full time. When I passed FAR the first time around, I started studying full time in July of 2017 (that included watching all of Roger's videos, reading the book where I felt the video wan't very clear, and then hammer our MCQs) and took the exam at the end of August 2017. I originally got a 58 (I panicked since it was my first exam) but retook the exam again in October and passed it with a 77. This time around, I just plan on reading the book and doing as many MCQs and some SIMs as possible.

    Eh, tough call. It might sound like a waste of time but I might rewatch all the videos instead of reading the book, but honestly depends on your learning style.
    Maybe you'll remember most of it and can just skim the book and hammer the MCQs.
    Just make sure you are very aware of the changes that went into effect in 2018 and 2019.
    I feel like now that you passed almost 2 years ago it might be like doing the exam all over from scratch, so I personally would allow a full 8 weeks, but you might get away with 4 or 6 weeks instead?

    I'd say a month. I used Ninja only for FAR and studied for two months part-time. I think if you give yourself too long, it makes it harder to remember what you studied at the beginning. Good luck!

    AUD - 87 (expired, 2/12), 7/19

    BEC - 81 (expired, 4/12), 7/19

    FAR - 89 (4/19)

    REG - 82 (5/19)

    What about using my old becker videos/lectures (2018) for far and ninja mcq's, notes, and audio 6 to 8 weeks? I prefer 6.

    In my opinion, Becker videos/lectures are a complete waste of time. I have the full Becker subscription. You might as well not even study.
    I studied for 2 months full time and still got raped by FAR. Don't trust Becker.
