FAR on Monday- any tips? Using Becker and went through entire book and all of the MC and SIMS and skill masters in the modules in the past 10 weeks and this last week has been drilling sets of 10 unlimited practice MC randomized with all chapters. Took mock exam 1 so far and got a 44 so I’m feeling pretty worried. This is my last exam and i struggle with far so just want to get it done with at this point. had a baby 13 weeks ago and studying during postpartum has been extremely diffic

Wow! Congrats on the new addition! And with all you have going on you’re studying for the CPA! I give you so much credit. I don’t trust the mock exams so I wouldn’t pay much attention to that score. Know JEs and drill as many government questions as you can over the weekend. I tend to ignore multiple choice questions that have huge calculations that would clearly take too much time. You got this! Good luck!

Thank you for the tips! I’ll keep that in mind for my last 2 days of review!

I always did worse on the mock exams then I did on the actual exams. Just keep drilling multiple choice questions and make sure you are thinking about why the answer is a certain way. You got this!

Thank you!

Everyone has the right to choose, but you do not get to choose the consequences of that choice. You can choose to not get vaccinated but the consequences might be that you have to change jobs or vaccinated people choose not to be around you. If you choose to not vaccinate your child then the consequence might be that you have to homeschool them. Choices all have consequences - whether good or bad.

Hey mommas - My baby is 14 weeks old and I haven't gotten my period back yet. I'm worried I'm pregnant again. When did you get your period back? For context, I'm breastfeeding but not exclusively (I am pumping and nursing as much as I can though). I've been on the pill since 6 weeks and my husband used condoms for the first few weeks once we started again. Surprisingly, I can't find anything online that's helpful. Any sense of a timeframe would be tremendously anxiety-reducing!

After baby was born, he continues to smoke multiple times a day and didn't have a problem with his family smoking in the house until I called him out and got into a huge fight.
