Ready to Execute My REG Plan of Attack

Hello fellow NINJAs!

I know it has been a while since I posted something, so I hope you will forgive me. Part of the reason was because I was hoping for the delayed score release so I could tell all of you my success.

Then I found out my score of 72 and went absolutely crazy. I mean, come on. I studied more and did worse???

I got a 74 the first time on FAR and I thought I had this thing done, but then I get 2 points worse? Not exactly sure what I did wrong here.

I had a lot hit me all at once as well. I lost my temporary assignment, our renters told us they were moving out, and then the CPA fail got me down. So, after being depressed about my lack of a success, I am moving on again toward my REG test in about 2 ½ weeks.

I think my main problem was that I didn’t do very well on the sims and I did better on the MCQ this time. So I think it is a matter of doing more sims and making sure I don’t slack on the MCQs. Essentially I need to do well on both in order to pass.

I am considering getting a cram course or another course altogether. I have not fully decided yet, but I think I at least need to look for another source to get more practice on sims.

So, I am off to study again. I will be taking REG soon and I am working to study around 3-4 hours a day. I think I have a good plan of attack now and now I need to properly execute it.
