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?

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

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!

Hey,

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!
