Just finished taking it. It was my first CPA exam experience, and man, it was something else. I felt like many of the questions had 2 correct answers, so of course, I had to think about which one was “most correct”. I felt like most of the simulations were easier than what I saw on the practice exams. I wouldn't be surprised if I got an 85, and also not surprised if I got a 55.
AUD - 81 BEC - 82 FAR - 77 REG - NINJA in Training
Took audit today. It wasn't really what I expected. Flagged way more multiple choice than when I took REG and FAR! The sims were much more simple and straightforward than anticipated. Not sure how to feel, I wasted a lot of time deliberating over the “most correct” answer like @Runincpa said. I am much more of a ‘numbers' person, and when ambiguity is involved I always second guess myself and change my answer 15 times. I am really hoping I did enough to pass, but wouldn't be surprised if I failed. Mentally, this was a tough exam for me coming right off passing FAR and REG back to back in Q2. I don't even want to think about studying for BEC, but I also want to get this exam out of my life.
Otherwise, I felt like the exam was pretty well rounded and representative of the blueprints. I used Becker to study, but feel like their multiple choice are kind of weak for AUD. I was trending much higher on Becker vs. Wiley test bank. On the other hand, the practice sims seemed more challenging than the real thing. Based on my REG and FAR experience, I was geared up for an endless gauntlet of soul-sucking documents and fill-in-the blank calculations…
