Joshua is a . Speed bump, learning opportunity, whatever you want to call it, a failing score is still just that: a fail. The Audit results are in and I’m no closer to my CPA than I was 4 weeks ago- before the test. This sucks. With another fail of Audit, I am making the decision to shelve the subject until I finish REG and BEC.
