Audio, MCQs, and the Battle with FAR

Mark is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger.

The battle with FAR continues…but it’s a battle I know I can win.

I’ve been through the material multiple times, answered numerous Wiley MCQs and now I’m just tying to stay confident for the remaining days until the exam.

I’ve never really tried rewriting my notes, but I’ve been going through each major topic and reorganizing them into a more useable format.

I sort of have a hybrid of NINJA notes, incorrect questions and miscellaneous fact nuggets, but putting them all together seems to help me understand the topics better.

Spending the time to do this has also improved my multiple choice performance. It’s easier to recall the information after I’ve organized it into something that makes sense to me.

I’m still trying to answer 100 questions a day, and now I’m just making sure that I’m rereading my notes as many times as possible. NINJA Audio has helped a lot too. It’s great for the car when reading notes isn’t exactly safe…haha. By the end of this I’ll have the entire audio memorized.

Hope everyone has a great week, and good luck with your studies.

Good for you Mark. Thank you for taking the time to post this. I'm sitting for FAR tomorrow and I am nnnneeeerrrrrvous. It's just so HUGE. It somehow makes me feel better to know that there is someone else out there who is trying to stay calm too. :) Good luck!

I like your perseverance in this journey. Have you taken any other parts other than REG? I took FAR first and just finished AUD the other day, probably will take REG next.
