Video: Studying for FAR without a Final Review?

 

 

Charlie writes in, “Hi, Jeff, I'm taking FAR with Roger CPA. One problem I've noticed is I'm in chapter 10, and I've forgotten what I learned in chapter 1. However, I don't have time to go back and review every day since I'm also a full-time student. A current daily CPA exam study time takes me about 4 to 5 hours, and I don't have extra time for reviewing. What do I do?”

You have to … Charlie, you have to take time to review, otherwise you're going to take time to retake the exam when you fail. That's the … well, that's just me being honest.

And you should always be honest. It's one of my pet peeves. “Well, honestly,” or “To be honest” and I'm like, “Shouldn't you always be honest?” All right.

I took time in the podcast and on this video to share one of my pet peeves. And anyone who's on my email list knows I hate “Thanks in advance.” Anyone else out there who hates “Thanks in advance.” All right. I'm right there with you.

All right. You have to study, and you have to review.

If you just study but you don't review, you're going to fail.

So you might have to push your test back a little while in order to fit the reviewing in, or maybe you shouldn't be taking the exam right now, because if you can't find time to review, you will fail, which you can't remember in chapter one, so you're in chapter 10, you can't remember in chapter 1 what you studied … recipe for a huge disaster.

Recipe for a 58 on exam day, and all of a sudden, you're like, “Man, maybe accounting isn't for me.” Like, “Maybe I need to take up something else. Blogging for the CPA Exam.”
