FAR Exam Debrief

So I just got back from the exam... it was pretty tough!

They assigned me to locker 7. Woohoo! Then they pointed me to my computer, number 13. BOO! To counteract the bad luck from the computer number, I submitted the exam with 7 minutes remaining. That way, the locker and computer juju cancels out and the 7 mins remaining puts me ahead, right??

Anyway, the MCQs were more detailed and seemed to take more time to understand than the Wiley online MCQs. I honestly didn't notice any…

Wiley FAR Practice Test

I just took my first full length Wiley Practice Exam for FAR. My exam is on the 27th, so I felt it would be valuable to take a full length exam for timing purposes and to get a general idea of what kind of score I was looking at with my current preparation.

I scored an 80 overall, with 72/90 MCQ and 5/7 Sims. Full score reports here...

Cold Feet

I find myself procrastinating or feeling unsure if I really want to take the Exam.  I can easily afford the fees, and have the time to study (not working).  But I feel like after I pay them, I might change my mind and not want to take it at all.  I would hate to lose the money (by not taking it or having a halfhearted attempt and failing) even though it's nothing for me.  So I guess I have cold feet.  Any thoughts?  Should I just schedule it and see what happens? -…
