My scores for Aud, Reg and Bec have been 75, 75, and 77. I’m studying for FAR and I’m a bit concerned that I may not skimp by as I have been. I’m barely passing these exams and FAR seems to be considered the most difficult. I’m not trying to get in the 90s but 75 is basically a few questions from failing. I’ll be honest that I haven’t finished the Becker materials for any of the prior 3 exams. For those that passed, did you have to study harder, differently for FAR compared to the other 3?

Im working at a big multi-product company and we're having 5 dedicated product teams, however, teams are working in silos. Each team's has its own process, design system, technology etc. We identified that most of the teams use and need components that were already conceptualised, designed and developed, for our other products, and we are starting to create a global set of components, a global design system that we will use on all our products. What is your approach?

What's the advantage of Roth? I have seen a lot of advice to get a Roth IRA, but I guess I don't understand why? Wouldn't the final return be same whether I pay the tax now and grow tax free or of I don't pay tax now and pay it at the time of withdrawal?
Where is the advantage of Roth can traditional IRA?

I broke through the wall in 2020 and feel like I blinked and it is 2022. I have been saving something close to 75% of my take home and dumping into ETFs. I feel like I want to branch out into real-estate but never lived anywhere more that 3 years. What would you do? I have cash to put a large down payment to avoid the high rates but am scared I have no roots and will move in another few years.

I’ve been listening to “millionaires unveiled” (highly recommend for FIRE content) and it seems like every other guest ends up doing real estate investing. If you do it, what books or online courses would you recommend to get started? If you have experience in real estate investing, would you ultimately recommend it?
Apologies if dumb question - I’m new here: if you plan to retire before age 59, do you just eat the e 10% early withdrawal penalties? Or do you just cease to rely on retirement accounts?
Hello community. Starting a job this month..base 150k, bonus 140k over 2 yrs, about 150k in stock. I want to join the fire movement. 12k emergency. 3k a month in expenses, mortgage, student loans is bulk. Tired of individual stock picking. Started investing in the VTI. Roth ira I guess I can't contribute anymore. Any advice of funds to pour into with the extra cash flow? Thx.
Hoping for some financial advice - wife and I make about $150k combined. Both max out our 401ks, HSAs, and IRAs. We also pay an extra $1300 towards the mortgage each month (3.25% int rate). We’ve put some cash into series I bonds, high interest savings as an emergency fund and one CD. We’re both reluctant to put more in the market and our 401k contributions recently have gone into money markets. Are we being too conservative? Any other investment advice?

I have a rollover IRA, and my husband has a SIMPLE and traditional IRA. $20k balance total. I got a new job and we'll need to start doing backdoor Roths next year.
Should I do conversions with these three pretax IRAs this year to make the backdoor roth process easier next year? I'm not sure I understand the ratio calculation part, or whether the two accounts' statuses as rollover/SIMPLE makes any difference.

Can we in the U.S. legitimately realize a tax loss by selling BTC at a loss and immediately re-buying it? Looks like this is possible because BTC is considered property rather than a security so it is not subject to the 30-day wash-sale rule. Seems too good to be true, especially being able to carry a $3K loss from this into future years? Anyone tried this? www.coindesk.com/layer2/2022/11/14/tax-loss-harvesting-crypto-trading-taxes/
