    I can’t pass Audit. I’ve failed it twice and feel that it’s so different from the other tests. Can everyone please drop their study strategy for this test. It is haunting me.

    AUD - 71
    BEC - 82
    FAR - 84
    REG - 66



    My retake in 2 days. I simply restudied everything again, focused on weak areas, practiced over 3000 MCQs and about 30 SIMs from AICPA. Keep practice you will get it.

    FAR - 73, 78 (WileyCPAexcel 3,000+ MCQs, 50 SIMs)
    AUD - 73, 81 (WileyCPAexcel 3,000+ MCQs, 40 SIMs)
    BEC - 71, 71, 74, 84 (WileyCPAexcel 3,000+ MCQs, 10 SIMs)
    REG - 84 (WileyCPAexcel 2,000 MCQs, 15 SIMs)

    CA Ethics Exam - 94%



    mcq and know the reports really well. I did the simulations for practice that weren’t too time consuming with words etc…concentrated a lot more on mcq…audit by far was my worst section…try not to have weak areas, I found myself avoiding certain areas because it wasn’t clicking or was just boring.


    I had problems with audit, as well. It took me 5 times to pass it. I had problems with my study method, so once I solved that I was good. I just hit the Ninja MCQs repeatedly. Once I was out of the assessment phase, I saw where my weak areas were. I would go back and read up on those areas, then hammer MCQs on them. Rinse and repeat. Listened to the Ninja audio in the car. Read the notes in any downtime. MCQs, and more MCQs. Good luck!

    AUD - 85

    Ninja audio playing all day long and focusing on the SIMs finally got me to a pass.. had a 69 and 73 before passing.

    AUD - 78
    BEC - 79
    FAR - 76
    REG - 79

    Another plug for Ninja Audio. I purchased it a long time ago, before the monthly review program, but once I rearranged the audio clips to match the Becker outline, I listened over and over. TIMMA

    FAR - 80 (4/1/2019)

    BEC - 82 (9/7/2019)

    AUD - 81 (11/23/2019)

    REG - 94 (3/9/2020)


    AUD is where a little nuance in words matter the most. As you are working through MCQs/SIMs, make sure you know exactly why your answers are right/wrong. For even the questions you get right, unless you are absolutely sure why your answer was right, make sure you read the explanation and understand why it was right.

    AUD - 99
    BEC - 91
    FAR - 94
    REG - 96
    Done with exam. On with life.

    I failed audit 5 times over 2 years. My studying was completely inadequate. From my experience, I was only adequate when I could answer almost 85% of audit questions on Another 71 forum lol YOU CAN DO THIS!

    I agree with @Jombe and the folks saying Ninja MCQ really helped. For me, NINJA MCQ was better than Becker. It took a WHILE for me to do well in Audit Sims…you have to truly understand audit processes of the main areas of accounting.

    AUD - 80
    BEC - 77
    FAR - 79
    REG - 77
    Finally free of the CPA cloud hanging over my head. Moving on.....
