A Cruise to the Caribbean + Behind on FAR Studies

Ahhhh, I can’t believe January is almost over.

On my last blog I had mentioned trying to take FAR by the end of February…well that isn’t going to happen.

I haven’t received my NTS yet and even if I do, I can’t really take my test on a weekday and I’m not ready.

I don’t think I am halfway through the material and that has me in a major panic.

I have FAR and AUD to take and pass before November rolls around and I know it’s only just the beginning of 2013, but November is right around the corner.

I went on a cruise to the Caribbean with my husband’s family and I took my book, but I only opened it once. SHAME ON ME!

I’ve gotten behind from what I had initially planned. Looking at the situation in whole, it truly is my fault for not staying on top of my study schedule and making it a point to get in at least an hour or so. I am trying to make it a point to get in a minimum of two hours on days I work late.

It’s surprising me how much FAR intrigues me. That is not how I initially felt about FAR but I really enjoy my lectures and the homework.

I’m glad I took BEC before starting FAR because there is some overlap of material and I definitely think BEC is the reason I am enjoying FAR…so far.

I’ve also been trying to figure out the requirements to transfer exam scores from one state to another. And from what I have gathered…it is very confusing. So many forms and fees for both states.

Has anyone done this before? If so, I would love some feedback on what to do.
