Thanks for sharing your story. I too have been in this game since 2011, with life curve balls getting me off focus; I have now found the time I need to knock this out. I took FAR in August and failed, plan to retake in October.
I know the feeling of coming close on the exam. I had a 74 on AUD and 68 on FAR.
This schedule works for me. The immediate feed back for completing sections gives me some sort of sense of accomplishment. It was taking me weeks/months to complete a section when I was working. By the time I would finish the text, I would forget so much of what I learned in the earlier sections. Making it seem like there would be an issue of retained information for me personally and the exam is cumulative.
That is nice that you can work and study at the same time. It is like getting paid to study. Not a bad deal.
I hear you. The exam is that way after you leave that examination room. It all just disappears from the mind.
Yes. I am preparing for two exams at once. I am re-examining in both exams. It is a lot of work to cover but I am studying full time right now. Time will not always be on my side so I am taking full advantage of it.
That is awesome that you feel good about FAR and that you moved through the MCQ's quickly. I hear that is the best way to approach the exam so you leave a lot of time for the SIM's. Were most of the MCQ's on Financial Statement Accounts or was it heavy in Specific Transactions? We are allowed to talk about that, right? I mean, we are not going into detail questions or anything.
