So I took AUD on Thursday, and they might call FAR The Beast, but the AUD TBS were quite beastly!! I had been practicing an insane amount of MCQs the days leading up, but still didnt hit some topics as hard as I wanted.
I whizzed through the MCQ and even though I tried to slow down, I finished them all in almost 90 minutes. Then I took my sweet time on the TBS and took a little over 90 minutes for those. I came out of the exam with about 45-50 minutes left on the clock.
Im not usually a fast exam taker, but the AUD MCQ have no calculations and Ive been practicing so many that I think I got very quick at them. I think having a lot of time for TBS was good because I got to check some answers in the literature.
Last time I took AUD I failed with a 71 and I was so upset I said I was done with the CPA and didnt take another exam for four months. Going into and coming out of that exam I said I nailed it. Im very wary to say that I think I passed, but I prepared pretty well and Roger CPA Review certainly did a fine job of preparing me fairly painlessly.
Now I am onto FAR. At first I was trying to choose between Becker and Roger for my review course. One of the perks (HA!) of having taken the exam so many times is I get a 2nd chance discount from a lot of review companies, so my options for reviews are a little easier on the pocket book.
I ultimately decided on Roger CPA Review because I loved it for audit. Roger is easier to watch than most other courses Ive tried, and I love how the lectures are broken up. Also, I was pleasantly surprised because I ordered FAR last Friday and got it by Tuesday!! Wow!
Study Hard!! I will be lounging today and maybe writing out a study plan later today.
