My last post was a bit longer than I expected. I will aim to keep my blogs short for everyones attention span.
I am proud to say the first part I passed was FAR! It was the motivation I needed and I feel more professional to say the least. I am happy that I changed my course material and got multiple views on the material. That is what ultimately worked for me. In addition, I did not attend a live class. I self studied on a schedule from the comfort of my house. The course I took also had pre-made notes, graphs, and lectures unlike my previous course. I was so concerned about writing all of my notes, I wasn’t focused on the material. Then, when I would later review my notes, I would lose the flow of the lecture.
With this newfound motivation, I studied and took REG in January 2011. Currently, I am still waiting to hear my results. Due to the new CBT-e format, the scores are going to take longer to release until October 2011, the 4th testing window.
I have taken the exam in the CBT format and CBT-e format. To date, I am happy to have taken FAR before the IFRS implementation. I still don’t know which format is better, CBT or CBT-e. That maybe another blog posting.
