I did lol relax

I even went as far as searching and rereading posts from 100+ weeks ago. Time lapses and more people either take the exam or just start studying, then a whole new group of people get to answer questions on new posts.

I was trending high 60s and passed FAR using Ninja. This was exactly one year ago from now.

Thank you for your input! I am getting between high 60s and mid 70s so I was getting nervous.

Hi! Just passed using NINJA CPA as a supplement to Becker I took two times previously just using Becker and came within 5 points of passing. What worked for me was listening to the audio notes while reading the chapter notes and rewriting all of the notes for FAR. Ninja summarizes big point areas fairly well so writing all the notes only took me about a day and a half. After that I just ran through MCQs of the areas I knew I did poorly in during the exam. Once I mastered those I ran through MCQs of all topics and did a practice exam through NINJA. Not once did I look at Becker the third time around. Improved my score by 10 points!

Thank you so much for your response! And congrats! That’s huge.

Do any firms give you “billable time” equivalent for taking vacation or time off? I think it’s kinda scammy that firms offer “unlimited pto” but still expect you to meet your hours without giving any hours equivalent for that PTO time you took. In reality, you’re not really taking PAID time off because you’ll have to make up those hours at some point in the year anyway.

I enjoy designing menus, ads, & information-heavy layouts. I do have a background in print production. One challenge I have is that my contracts only allow me to use my mock-ups & my previous position won’t allow me to use those images at all. Looking for honest advice. TIA!

Any tips of things I should review the most? I have been studying the past month but not super intense because I am so burned out… I passed the other 3 by using the cram method in 2 weeks for REG, 1 week for AUD, and 2 weeks for BEC. Is it possible to cram for FAR and be ok?
