    I sat for my 3rd audit retake last Thursday. The first testlet I think I marked only 6 that were very tough and had 2-3 others maybe that I was 50/50 on. I’m worried though because although I felt strong I didn’t necessarily see a 2nd testlet difficulty increase but I could be wrong (maybe better prepared). I believe I did really well on the 2nd testlet and kind of regret focusing mid exam trying to realize if it got more difficult lol. Kind of hard to tell?
    SIMs were difficult as always, but I was able to answer them well. Maybe had two sims that I had to educated guess on. Overall exam felt a lot easier besides the SIMs than my prior attempt.

    Switching over to begin studying REG and am hoping with tax experience it won’t be as bad or boring to me as audit was. I’m planning on doing 2 chapters a week of becker and sitting end of May. I don’t receive audit results May 8th anyways. Anything I should focus on regarding REG beforehand just to have a good view of things?

    Thank you guys for any advice and suggestions.

    Have a great Sunday!

    You should move on and not waste your time waiting for the results. I was 100% sure I failed FAR, but moved on to REG and ended up passing. I only finished about 25% of my last testlet, since I ran out of time. Same thing happened with REG. This time I completed all the Sims, but I guessed on so many mc questions. The point is, dont assume that you failed. Start studying for REG and hope for the best. Even if you failed AUD, you only need a couple weeks to prepare, since you already know the material. Good luck!
