Sorry it has been a little while since my last post, but I have been studying up a storm for FAR, which I took on July 8th.
I hope I did better than last time, but FAR is one of those exams that you just never know. I studied differently this time, incorporating my own handmade flashcards of journal entries and calculations.
I also purchased NINJA MCQ (which I do like and resembles exam questions more) after debating a few weeks if I wanted to buy yet more exam material. I completed hundreds of MCQ, which I analyzed to fully understand the topic and Sims to prepare. I hope this extra bit helped me get a pass on FAR.
So until score release, I am studying for AUD, which I have scheduled for the end of August. I am looking forward to reading and understanding some different material.
Hope everyone is having a great summer so far and enjoying the weather as much as possible. A few times I sat outside and would read or do MCQs. A change in scenery can be helpful to get a break from the routine.
This upcoming weekend will be one of not studying and catching up on things that need to get done around the house and going to the lake for a day to relax. Going to enjoy it before things start to get crazy again and I am studying every weekend.
Good luck to everyone taking exams this quarter! Happy Studying.
For how long did you study for FAR?
February to May the first time. Second time a little over a month. FAR is just so much material I didn't know what to focus on the first time. Then after seeing the exam, I knew what I needed to focus on more and actually learned the concepts.
