Hello all,

My exam is on 30th and I am not yet prepared. I have
solved mcq's once for 6 chapters and still have to do it
for Government and Non Profit and Consolidations, I have
read the material twice and have to go through
consolidations and non profit. I am not confident for
what I have studied so far as I am scoring 55% on an
average.
I know I should not sit for the exam now.

But my problem is that I am working and will not get any
leave in january. My NTS expires on Jan 20th and my BEC
credit expires on April 10th. I will be busy with tax
season during April and will have no scope to re appear
if I fail this January attempt. So this is a very crucial
decision and I am unable to decide what to do. My piers
and friends say I should just study and appear for the
exam as later I will not have enough time to study.

Please give me honest opinion what should I do. I have to
reschedule before 25th.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Also, I would like to know if this is an achievable target.
And if you have any strategies which can help me cover this
subject is next 8 days would be really helpful. I am using
Becker and also have Yeager cram which I have not used yet
and also Wileys books.

If there is no way you can reschedule then, take one topic per day. I
would maybe spend one day studying, the chapter 8 information. Another
day with the chapter 9 information. And the another with the chapter 3
information. Then you can spend the rest of your remaining time review
the material & trying to improve your homework scores.

All the governmental & non-profit stuff is mostly memorization, there's
very little equations. Most of the consolidation stuff is easy to pick up.
The one section that might take a a little more time is learning the
acquisition method.    

I think you might be overwhelming yourself with material at this point.
Becker, Yeager, & Wiley is a lot of stuff to cover. I'd stick with the Becker
questions & then look at Wiley & Yeager for you weaker topics.

Thanks Roswell. I can but I am trying to avoid rescheduling
. What do you think, should I reschedule to Jan 1st week or
can I cover up in these 8 days?

I am inked for 11/30 as well and have many of the same concerns.  I will lose REG on April 28 and preparing for an exam during tax season is not a consideration.  I am rescheduling for the first week in January in hopes that I can be well prepared vs. going in on 11/30 and praying for a miracle. 

Good luck, whatever you decide.
