FAR Videos Done + Hitting the MCQs


Ben is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger.

Hello fellow NINJAs!

I am happy to hear that many of my fellow ninjas have done so well on this last round of exams! I am very hopeful that I will be able to get my first passing score after I take my first exam next month.

I am trying really hard to rev up my study schedule and not waste time focusing on things that seem to be ineffective. I am still working toward passing the FAR section next month and at this moment it means “N” for non-stop MCQs!

I finally finished my videos for FAR (there were so many of them!) and I am now trying to do MCQs on each section until I can get at least a 70-75% on each group of 20 questions consistently. I am also trying to listen to the NINJA Audio when I have time and I am trying to read the NINJA Notes.

There seems like there is so much information and I wonder if the hardest section of the CPA exam really is FAR? I am attempting it as my first section, but it seems like it is so hard because there is so much information.

Things are starting to come together as I am getting practice working problems from Wiley’s MCQs, but I am wondering how best to apply my time and if I should focus on the simulations at all. I think I will try to work the sims into my study somehow, possibly once I feel better about my progress on the MCQs.

I still have yet to schedule my exam because I want to be rock solid on the fact that I am ready before I do so. I figure since my clock has not started because this is my first exam that I should do this one right and then really try to knock the rest out by hitting them even harder.

I also am spending some more time on FAR because that was my weakest topic in school and I am hoping that the other sections will be a bit easier for me.

Well, back to some MCQs! See you next week!

  • I just wanted to make sure I didn’t rush things my first time. And yes you want to schedule in advance because time slots fill up fast! I will be taking FAR on the 20th of july

  • Would it be useful to schedule your FAR exam to make sure you get a decent time and day at prometric? My testing center filled up really fast within the test window. Good luck on FAR, when are you planning on taking it?
