Hi, So I didn't pass my first cpa exam which was for Audit using Wiley course. However, before I even got my result I went and purchased the full Roger course because I really liked the lecture videos. Going forward do you guys recommend me stick to Roger or Wiley for the AUD part? And is it best idea to do the full course again? I received the cram course with the course package I purchased from Roger. So should I just complete the cram course and go from there? What do you guys think?
I also have ninja MCQ which expires in 2.5 weeks, which I plan on restarting and doing it from beginning.September 22, 2016 at 9:35 am #843789AnonymousInactive
How did you do the last time (score)?
It's good that you enjoyed the lectures. But since you already watched the videos, I wouldn't waste more time with them. I'd focus more on my notes and concepts this time around.
Since you only have 2.5 weeks for NINJA MCQ, why don't you just knock out all those MCQs before the software expires? Then go back to other materials available for you.
I am also taking AUD because my credit expired last year. Dang! I like Becker book, but what I have is a 2013 version. I already bought NINJA and I want to work on MCQs only after studying the concepts.
Good luck to both of us!September 22, 2016 at 9:45 am #843798mohit30Participant
@Amor D I got a 66% on the exam. I think I know what areas I messed up on.
And I haven't really finished all the lecture videos. Last I did the Wiley Course and read all the material that was provided since the Wiley lectures were so boring. But while looking for some videos on Youtube I saw Roger's lectures which made me want to get his course for my next three parts.
Thats why instead of re reading the material I was planning on going through all the Roger videos and do his test bank with Ninja MCQ. I already finished like 99% of wiley's test bank last time. So re doing that won't help me much since I already know the answers to most of them by memory.September 23, 2016 at 1:46 pm #844538AnonymousInactive
I've never used Wiley but have taken AUD twice now (lost credit for the first time around) and passed both times using Becker then Roger. I used Becker first and it was my first exam ever so I took like a thousand years to study and ended up with a 77. The second time around, I used Roger because my Becker expired and I obviously wasn't getting the results with it. Plus most of my co-workers are all using Roger too. I did a serious cram session with Roger (literally like 2 weeks of studying) and passed with an 84. I watched the lectures on internal controls and transaction cycles and that's it. And I really read the book and made my own notes. I loved Roger's book compared to Becker.
So it may be worth it to just test out something new to give your brain something fresh to look at for this next time around and if you know your weak spots, focus on those! Good luck!!!
