I am just starting to study audit and it has been unusually difficult for me to remember the concepts. I think this has been more difficult for me to learn than FAR because of the amount of little things you have to remember regarding each opinion and the wording that must be memorized. I know a lot of people say this is one of the “easier” exams, but I am struggling the most on this one. Is something wrong, or is the real exam much simpler than Becker?
I have heard some people say they used Gleim for AUD. I'm still waiting on my score. I thought it was a very hard exam.
AUD - 85 BEC - 92 FAR - 84 REG - 88
I've found an anomaly in the Space-Time Continuum. NASBA and the AICPA are in the 19th century. They use slide rules to score the exam, and then they send the scores by Pony Express to the State Boards. That's why it takes so long for them to do a score release.
I used Wiley test bank and found the actual exam was much harder, especially mcqs.
and i agree with you that AUD is one of harder exams but, don't worry too much, you'll be fine!
on the remembering wordings issue on different types of reports,
i didn't try to put myself to remember every detail but just kept reading (*REPEATEDLY*) and
you reach a point that you naturally remember the wordings (important phrases) which differentiate from other reports.
you don't need to feel discouraged since you just began.
what my AUD instructor told me became very essential to me, “see forest first and then trees”
grasping entire flow/structure of materials could be more important
than focusing every little details from the beginning of studying AUD which makes you exhausted.
