I had a rematch with my monster, Audit, Monday afternoon. Over the weekend I did so many MCQs, they were coming out of my ears. I was scoring pretty well on them so I felt very confident and ready to face MY MONSTER.
Going in I had a plan of attack. I told myself I should finish all 90 MCQs within 2 hours with a break so I would give myself plenty of time with simulations.
1 hour and 45 minutes into the exam I finished all of the MCQs. One thing I did differently this time around, I read the questions and anticipated what the answer would be.
Most of the time, the answer I was thinking of was there. When it wasnt, I narrowed the answer down to two, and then answered with the best one of two I thought would be correct.
Then the simulations came. I took my time with them as well and still had plenty of time to spare. I walked out of the exam room with 1 hour left.
For the first time sitting for these exams, I didnt panic or walk out of the exam room in tears. I walked out happy and confident with the way I handled the questions and overall exam, even with the hand held metal detector.
Now Im ready to move onto the next two rematches, REG and FAR.
With REG Im planning on using Beckers Final Review, Jeffs NINJA notes, and Wiley Test Bank. I just sat for REG the last three windows in a row. I hope Im not going to run myself short without reviewing the whole Becker Review Course.
August 9 will be here before I know it, and Im pretty comfortable with it. Ill just do A LOT of MCQs.
With FAR, Im planning on reviewing with Roger CPA Review, Jeffs NINJA notes, and Wiley Test Bank. I havent sat for FAR since 2009, so with all the new changes I better review everything!!!
Throughout my whole experience, Ive only reviewed with Becker. Im looking forward to using Roger CPA Review. I looked at his orientation video, and I think Im going to really enjoy his teaching style. The 30 minute orientation video felt like a 5 minute Becker lecture. Time just flew by.
Next time Ill let you know how Im balancing both REG and FAR.
Till next time!!
Happy Studying and Test Taking!!
