For those of you who have taken FARE or who are near the
completion of your study, how much time were you preparing?
Is 1 month of full-time studying enough? I can average
about 8 hours per day including weekends. Thanks

More than enough. I spent about 160 hours on FAR, and 135 on REG in just over a month period, and felt fine on both exams.

I don't think that it would be enough.

Although, depends on the person. I could not study FAR 8 hours every day for a month. I think I would go crazy after that.

Also, if you are a recent graduate, then, it's possible. If you have been out of the school for a while, I doubt it. Too much material.

I would suggest starting it and see how it goes. First chapters in all reviews are easiest. If it goes fast for you, and you retain info fine, then, you may decide if you can accomplish it in a month.

Good luck in whatever way you choose.

If you are willing to put 8 hrs a day, then it is very good. But remember that if you reduce the time, say 4-5 hrs a day, it may be difficult. Target 40 days in total before you take the exam - 30 days for studying and 10 days for final review. You'll feel confident.
Good luck !
