    2. The topic I'm most comfortable with is engagement acceptance

    Well, here I am. I thought I was all done with a 4/4 until I had the rug pulled out from under me last week and got back a 74 on AUD. I came out feeling like I had done enough to pass and was looking forward to having my nights and weekends back, and relaxing and re-focusing on work for the upcoming holidays. I'm still pretty dejected. More to the point, I'm a little lost. I hadn't failed a section until now, so I'm a little unsure of how to go about regrouping and getting ready for a re-take. I'm tentatively planning to just start from the beginning with the learning material (I've been using Wiley), supplement with some NINJA material, try to study the material a lot closer, and get ready for an early-November re-take. I think the worst part is having to wait until almost Christmas to find out the new score.
    Anyone else who has been through it/in a similar boat have any advice?

    3. Topic you're weakest in / worries you the most: Audit reporting is my weakest!!! all the professional terminologies also gave me a hard time which didn't help me to understand the audit concept either. I am hoping to get a better picture after learning the rest of the book.

    I took AUD in Q3 and received a 73, and I know the sections I completely missed on, so I am hoping I can hone in on those areas as well as supplement concepts through working through FAR to help me topple this section!

    I failed with a 72, hoping that supplementing Ninja with Becker will help me get over the hump. Also, for all the other exams I practiced SIMS non-stop 2 days before the exam. For Audit I did not, so this time around, I'm doing SIMs non-stop for 2-3 days before I actually take the exam.

    BEC: 75!

    FAR: 84!

    AUD: 81!

    REG: 79!
