    Based on the score disparities I'm seeing unlike before I think NASBA is making changes (without our knowledge) because of Jeff's success rate with candidates…..IMHO

    This was a retake due to my first score of 76 expiring. The first time I used only Becker. For my retake I used my Becker book and Ninja MCQ.

    Section: Audit (2nd time)

    Trending score: 93%

    Actual score: 67%

    I completed all the questions, re-did all the questions I got wrong until I answered each question right, and completed all the SIM's and reviewed the SIMS I got wrong.

    This score is lower than my last exam I took in early June – scored 73%. I'm disappointed but not going to give up.

    Spent a month of lecture, reading, watching youtube on some of the trouble topics, and made intense notes. Started hitting the MCQs during second month. This was the first time I used NINJA MCQs, so I just jumped right in. However, as others have suggested I should have went topic by topic until I saw all the questions. Seeing different variation of the same type of question helped drill things in my head (I'm doing this for REG now)

    I feel the NINJA MCQs prepared me for MCQs on the exam. The exam SIMS on the other hand are just…hmm, what's the word I'm looking for? I felt I did OK on the SIMS, yet that was weakness according to the report (the rest were strong with two comparable) – and that's probably why I just squeaked by (I'll take it nonetheless).

    Going through NINJA was painful (the careless mistakes, the gotchas, and the ‘wth are you asking me' moments and last but not least Governmental). However, I'm glad I went through that pain as I feel it helped me gain a bit more confidence and helped pick up some points where I don't think I would have gotten had I not used NINJA.

    Additional Comments: I got done completing all Becker materials of REG before I moved on to the Ninja MCQs. As you can see by the questions attempted, I didn't have much time to do the Ninja MCQs. Although my average score and trending score are relatively low, I felt like I really knew the concepts and that carried over to the actual exam. Ninja MCQs are a really beneficial study aid to Becker and I highly recommend.

    Side Note: I'm taking Audit this coming week and would like to bump this thread as I'm curious of how others did on the actual exam compared to their Ninja MCQ results for Audit.

    ^^This was my 3rd attempt for REG. I reset the stats when I studied again so overall I did more MCQ but for this 3rd re-take I did the above. I didn't touch MCQ until after I got through the entire NINJA Book (Used 10 point combo for this re-take). The lowest trending average for any section was 74%.
