It Looks Like English....but its not...

26 days remaining
Mood - Let Down
Study Time – 2.0 hours (352.0 total - FAR: 72.0 - BEC: 74.5 - REG: 118.0 - AUD: 89.5)
Scores:  AUD-94, REG-97, BEC-93

I was lost today.  I got up and read through the FAR-8 material.  It didn't seem as bad as I thought.  I then got distracted by friends and went off to see a movie.  I came back and read about a third of FAR-9 when I realized I really didn't have a clue what any of it said.  I tried to start over but was beat on it for the day.


  1. I love this blog, I only wish I would have thought to do it! I found out I passed FAR about a month ago and could not have been more relieved. I'm also using Becker but must say it can be overwhelming at times...especially with FAR. I had a major meltdown 2 weeks before my exam and some how, some way, it actually sunk in. Hang in there, you're almost done. I'm taking REG on 4/2 and hopefully I will be done too. Would be nice to get our lives back just in time for summer, right? :)

    Best of luck to you,


  2. Thanks for the comments. I am really feeling overwhelmed with what I've got to pull together in the next 2-3 weeks. The material that I'm doing alright on I feel like I've barely got a grasp on. Then there are the materials I might as well be at ground zero on. It will come together, but I am not looking forward to the next couple of weeks.

  3. I am also currently studying for the FAR section. I work fulltime and have two boys (5 year-old and a 4 year-old). Since I started studying, I have become very emotional. I do not want to see anyone or leave my house. I have a Question for you Dale. When I do the homework questions, I feel that half of the time I am getting them wrong for a stupid mistake but after reviewing the answer I see where I went wrong. Is this happening to you too?

  4. I get that all the time. It is part of the normal learning process. You miss something minor or silly on a question. The goal is to not miss a similar question for the same reason. It is incredibly frustrating, but it is all part of the learning process for this exam.

  5. Thank you sooo much for the feedback. I am just hoping the questions we are currently studying will be the similar questions we see on the exam. When are you scheduled to take the exam? I am on lecture 3 and I plan to take the exam at the end of May.

  6. I actually haven't scheduled yet. This next week is my last week of classes. I am hoping to take the exam around the 15th of April, but I'm going to wait until next week to see how I feel about the material before scheduling.
