I use Becker by self-study. Now I have to face a limited time for study. I only have two weeks left to take FAR, but I still have three chapters haven't done. How many days do you guys go through the last two Governmental chapters?  Is there any possibility to finish this two chapters within 4-5 days if i know nothing about Governmental? Any suggestion?

thanks in advance.

Multiply number of lecture hours times 4 and that will give you how many
hours you need to study for GOV, NFP.

Create a time tracker in spreadsheet to track every minute.

F8 and the first section of F9 are heavily related. Some parts of the governmental from F8 are repeated in F9. You should try to complete the material as quickly as you can if you are short on time.
If you are short on time focus on the portions that Becker says the examiners focus on such as:
Fund structure
Fund Accounting, and
External reporting for F8

All the best.

Spend most of your time on the statements. For an example, does fiduciary fund require a statement of CF? or which statement does fund expense belong to. It is heavily tested on the CPA exam. Good luck!

REG 07/20/10 Retake
BEC 08/24/10 75 (Thank God!)
FAR 10/26/10 Retake
AUD 11/24/10
