Could have been better. I'm in a weird place right now. I finished the Becker material on time for the 1st time ever (I've studied for these tests many times over the last 10 years). For FAR I had 3 days to review, BEC I had 4 days to review. I felt myself let off the gas this weekend after finishing all the material.
Really need to stay focused over the next 12 days and lock down a couple areas, specifically Audit Evidence nuances.November 11, 2019 at 5:39 pm #2791131AndreAParticipant
Awful.. my average score on MCQs 50-65 and my exam in 3 weeks, I need to review everything again and hummer MCQs, because I don't have a good understanding of the material. I don't like Wiley video lectures for audit section…November 14, 2019 at 7:55 am #2795100
I'm not off on weekends; but I'm off today and tomorrow. I'm not usually off today, either; but due to immigration, I don't have much choice but call in to work; I keep looking for a job with a normal workweek, though. I did an employment test today. It was like an easy version of FAR; but I'm pretty sure I wasn't used to looking at questions from their perspective; so I'm pretty sure I missed a couple. We'll see what happens.
I got a study unit done today in audit planning, and have a lot to catch up on by Saturday. I get my FAR results next week. I'm the majority of my work in Gleim but with Becker's help and in Becker's order. I'm about to get into some risk assessment, information technology and auditing; I'm approaching risk, evidence and sampling; it just seems like a lot to balance by the 10th; at least, my request for time off for the exam was approved; I keep thinking, what if I got this job for which I just applied? I hope I'd still get time off for AUD. My timing..November 24, 2019 at 4:59 pm #2810217
This has been a better week. I'm convinced preparing for the CPA has been helpful if nothing else for the law of attraction. I may finally have a full-time accounting career starting within the month. I'm convinced that thinking about accounting all day is helpful for such things. It's still going to be a busy one for now and physically challenging throwing turkeys and potatoes. Happy Thanksgiving/Black Friday! Now, my tryptophan avatar helps me see things from Maui's perspective. I should get back before my fate is similar to that of the thug Pizza-the-Hut.March 2, 2020 at 3:05 pm #2951903
I decided to resurrect the study groups. If you have a study strategy question for me, post it here. 🙂

Hi! It's my first time to post here but I've been using Ninja as my main reviewer. I've taken 2 AUD exam already that I both failed (63 on Q4 2019, 62 on Q1 2020). The first time I thought I knew the material but I still ended up failing. The second time I study on my weaker areas and felt really good going in but the actual exam was surprisingly harder than the first time I took it. I have 2 Sampling Sims that I don't have any idea what to do and I'm kinda short of time too and just rushed it 🙁
Can someone helped me with the Audit?? What should I do to pass this exam? I feel like I did everything I could and starting to lose hope already. It doesn't help that I'm an international candidate too so this whole journey is really costly.March 21, 2020 at 12:26 am #2966324cpaexpertParticipant

Hi Everyone! My name is Katharine and so far I've passed REG and FAR. I was supposed to take AUD on April 5th but due to COVID I've had to reschedule twice now. Currently signed up to take it May 18th.
With having to postpone twice now I've been super disheartened, anxious, and frustrated. I've been trending well on MCQ's and I really wanted to just take it and move on to BEC. But for now I'm still trying to keep everything fresh in mind.
My goal for this weekend is to do 300 MCQ's and listen to at least 4 sections of audio.July 21, 2020 at 12:22 pm #3055125DB917Participant
I'm looking for advice to help me pass AUD. I failed the test last time with a 70. The exam told me I performed fine on m/c but poorly on simulations- therefore, I am primarily focusing on simulations as I study for this retake. However, I am getting 80s (which I did before I took the exam the first time around) on the simulations and don't feel like I am absorbing much additional information. Any advice on how to improve my score? Thank you!August 4, 2020 at 3:43 pm #3066261August 18, 2020 at 12:33 pm #3079521August 25, 2020 at 4:42 pm #3087003
