What order of exam parts have people found helpful?  I've heard people recommend the FAR section first since it is generally more difficult, but I don't believe Becker starts with this section.  Thanks.

It depends on your style.

Do you need a confidence booster?

1-BEC, 2-REG, 3-AUD, 4-FIN

Do you think you will have enough time in the given windows? Do you want to get the hardest ones out of the way?

1-FIN, 2-REG, 3-AUD, 4-BEC

Do you want to first gain knowledge that can help you with your new job?

Auditors should:
1-AUD, 2-FIN, 3-REG, 4-BEC

Tax Accountants:
1-REG, 2-FIN, ETC.

What should, in your opinion be the order of exams to be written: FAR, BEC, REG, AUD?

The order of the exams depends 100% on you. Read the content specifications for each part and determine which matters you feel more comfortable with according to your work experience, if any, and the time you left college. Study and take those first, as passing them is a big booster to keep going. I did that and it's working for me...have 2 down already (AUD and BEC) and I'm highly motivated for the next 2.

But some people prefer to take the hardest up front as they feel "fresher" to study hard for them...again, it's your choice.

Hey all,

I just wanted to run this by all of you.  Any comments are welcome.

July-August Window:  Write FAR sometime before mid July.  Write BEC as late as possible in August.  I will not be employed so I can focus on studying. 

October-November Window:   Write REG as late as possible in November (hoping to have a job)

January-February Window: Write AUD late feb (again hoping to have a job)

What do you think?  Am I way over my head????

thanks in advance!
