I saw the link that you sent me, yes, I am using home study from yaeger the same with the link that you sent. Try to find a coupon to get a discount, which might help to save some money. Yaeger might not focus so much in IFRS, but overall is ok.
Which state are you planning to take the exam? You mentioned international student??...so just asking if there were any other things you might have to do before sitting for a exam part. I am currently using Becker for my review...i have passed 2 parts (AUD & BEC) the first time using Becker and just took FAR again - 4th time...:( yesterday. So it all depends on what your strengths are. I don't think one software is better than the other. It all depends on how much time you can dedicate to it. It's truly about forgetting about your personal life for these exams. It's sad but very true.
As far as which part to take...i would say either start with the part you feel you would do best in or the part you think it will be most difficult...this way if you pass the first time it gives you motivation for the rest. There are no restrictions on order of exam part you decide to go take.
Anyways...let me know if you have any other questionss...we can discuss further.
My study is getting very stressful, my test is on Feb 28, what about you?
For material to study, I am now using Yaeger review which is helpful, They use wiley book and explain from the book very well (but not every MQ though) somehow I feel like I need more review, Keyur (FAR member) recommended me to get self-study from Becker. I checked the price is kind of expensive. but I might have to get.
