FAR Study Tip #1: Concepts
FAR Study Tip #2: Repetition
Like I said, I went over my materials like 20 times, after each page I see if I can recite what I read before moving on to the next page. A similar tactic was used for the flashcards. I did use audio for a while also. And right before the exam I found some videos on YouTube for government/nonprofit as I did not take that course in school.

- Just click "start" don't add any more painful minutes! I know it helps some people to just memory dump on the note paper. But my logic is, you either know it or you don't.

- I found it helpful to write it down before the exam because here is the thing, at least that was my experience, I read the question and start trying to remember the formula then I started to doubt whether it was net sales or net income the nominator for my formula. That being said u remember it and write it down. if you happen to need that formula or whatever it is that u wrote down, u reference what u wrote instead of panicking and confuse your brain with the confusion they add to the questions - Juleita F.
- Pension expense, eps and deps is what i did. Also govt funds by category. - Bernice G.
