    I’m in need of advice.

    I’ve done 3 practice exams and my scores have gotten better. The latest is a 70%. My exam is on 1/14. What can/should I do this week?

    Should I just concentrate on my notes? Or should I do Notes, MCQ and SIMS? What would you do?

    Thanks!

    If I were in your shoes, I’d do MCQ’s and sims until I couldn’t do them anymore. Audit is such a procedural exam that repetition does help. That changes in April, but for now that’d be my course of action.

    Of course, I always took exams on that absolute last day of the window and usually after postponing them a time or two. If you need more time, why not change your date?

    Book and notes imo. I took Aud Monday and wish I had gone over the Roger text more. MCQ are great but knowing the material is better.

    Sims are also a mixed bag. I don’t think doing more sims would have helped me.


    Not looking forward to Feb 7th.

    Without revealing the specifics of the exam, are the questions kind of like what we get with the NINJA MCQs?

    The first testlet, yes. Ninja prepared me very well for the “medium” testlet. It was all stuff straight you know it or you don’t.

    My experience of the next two “difficult” testlets was that I had to pick the answer between 2 comparatively good answers. I don’t think any amount of MCQ studying would have helped me with that. The devil is in the details with the more difficult testlets which is why I say do plenty of MCQ but also read your notes and study materials.

    Someone had a great idea that I wish I had followed. Read your study materials cover to cover the 2-3 days before your exam and write stuff down that you previously didn’t know or remember seeing.
