FAR on Friday

I worked until 1am last night wrapping up the Yaeger CPA Review FAR Disc 9 and wasn't sure what today would bring. Twice within the span of 4 hours I had my payment info loaded onto Prometric's site and a new date selected (November 4) and all I had to do was hit “confirm” and put my exam back a week or so, but I just couldn't do it for some reason.

I still had discs 10, 11, 12, and 13 to go as of this morning. Thankfully, work was slow (and my boss is very nice), so I sat at my desk and worked through discs 10-13 throughout the day and into the evening and I am now done with Yaeger‘s FAR program. Was it easy to sit there for 12+ hours (I worked each 4 hour DVD in about 3 hours using the time stretch feature on my laptop)?

No, but it was worth it.

I am taking tomorrow off from work, going to the local coffee shop (what a cliche, right?) and plan on spending a good 12 hours tomorrow working MCQs and sims…and I'll be ready.

FAR – Believe the Hype

This isn’t my first rodeo and although I’ve sat for – and passed FAR before, that was two years ago and I didn’t take anything for granted this time. All totaled, I probably spent over 100 hours studying and worked 2000+ MCQs. Still, I was surprised, but not overwhelmed by any means with what I […]

Old School Final Review

Since I bought myself (literally) an extra 10 days to study, I’ve set the software aside and have been methodically going through the Wiley book and doing Yaeger‘s recommended questions per section. I work the problem and then read the answer. Instead of flipping back and forth from the questions to the answers, I have […]

Brain Delay

I may have been a bit too cavalier about cramming for FAR. It’s one thing to go through all of your material…it’s another to actually review it. So, I hit the eject button and decide to reschedule to November 4. Easy enough, right? Maybe not. In my new e-mail confirmation from Prometric it reads RESCHEDULE […]


I gave in and decided to push my exam back a week so that I would have a calm week to review and do MCQs. They wanted $95 to reschedule my exam. I decided to wait until Wednesday to decide what to do. If I can plow through the rest of my lectures and have […]

I wish you all the best with your exam!!! Good luck! You are almost done! Had it not been for the 18 month window you would already be a CPA! So, go for it and let us know how it went!

WHAT IS THE TIME STRETCH FEATURE!?! Do all laptops have this? I am one of those people who talks really fasts and if they person lecturing isn't up to speed I start to stare off into space... hahahahaha. My old boss used to talk a mile a minute and everyone else was TERRIFIED to work for him and they would be like how can you remember everything he is saying he talks soooo fast!?! But it worked for me.
