Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

FAR-What are the hardest chapters Becker

I have FAR on Oct 2, and start work in mid-Sept. I am trying to focus my time on the harder subjects. This is my first exam; should I keep my date or move it back?


reemi105 the wait of reg is killing me

You should be able to take the exam, but if you an option to forward the date, I would. FAR is the longest section in Becker and each lecture has a lot of homework questions. The good thing about FAR is that everything builds on itself. I don’t know if there is a “hard” chapter, because everyone has their own weaknesses. I feel like bonds and leases are the more confusing aspects as well as consolidations. Becker does a good job with consolidations I feel. Also, I would take the non-profit and government sections seriously bc those items will definitely be on the exam. I’m not sure if I answered your question, but I would make sure to know every section. I think the easiest chapter was the one with inventory and depreciation.

If you are using Becker, just follow their order. Chapter 2 will seem hard, but then they repeat some questions in later chapters, and it seems not as bad as in the beginning

Thanks for the input. I am going through Chapter 5 (as we speak :( ). I thought I was a little better on the bonds portion (I was a finance major in college as well), but I guess not. Oh well, just have to keep going at it. Just want to pass this one so I don’t have to mess with the 2011 FAR exam. Thanks!

Hello, I scheduled FAR for 10/2 as well. You are farther along than i am, still finishing up homework for ch. 3. I am studying full time (not working) so I feel like it’s doable, but it is my first attempt at FAR. Souds like our focus should be around:

1. Bonds
2. Government
3. Non-profit
4. Leases
5. Consolidations

Not in that order… good luck and lets keep eachother motivated!

Yeah, I think it is doable too. I planned on finishing going through all the material before my start date (which according to Becker shouldn’t be a problem), and then do a final review for 2.5-3 weeks. I don’t want to restudy a new book for 2011, so I’m a little stressed.

I am also studying full time right now, as I mentioned. It’s all I do :(

That’s ok, remember the more miserable we are now the better chance we have of passing, we have to make studying our life for the next 6 weeks! we can do it!
