AUD Exam: Perfect Testing Conditions for Tough Sims

I used another day of vacation time to take my AUD Exam.

It was a beautiful partly sunny fall day in South Dakota. Perfect weather for testing….However, the testing conditions were much different from my last experience while taking BEC. This time was quiet, cool and no construction.

Unfortunately, I showed up at 7:30 and they had to check in 9 medical students for the MCAT…I did not get started until 8:15 AM.

This AUD exam, like any other time I took AUD, was adorable in sense that it was so confusing that I wanted to make some disruptions for the MCAT testers. I flagged a bunch of questions on the 2nd and 3rd testlets due to extreme wording and absurd topic base.

The sims made me question my desire to exist as I felt like I was taking a different test. They were hard. Really hard. Afterwards, I just felt numb and could not determine if I did well or not.

Driving home, I realized I spaced out 8 miles of driving on the interstate going 84 MPH after I saw my exit.

Here is hoping for a successful score!

Congrats on passing BEC. That is my next exam. I felt the same way about FAR! I felt like I did well on my multiple choice. But the simulation was on another level! On the Becker practice exams, both of them only had 1 simulation that required any journal entries. I averaged about a little over 80% on both of them. My exam was the exact opposite and the directions are so convoluted! I was pretty sure I failed audit as you thought you did BEC, but I passed with an 80%. Fingers crossed we both get lucky again!
