    Additional Comments: Had passed other three sections with Roger only. Scored 73 on first AUD attempt. I frankly did not put in the time like I had for the other sections, but I did put in enough time to memorize Roger IPQs. When I recognized this I bought Ninja MCQ, only 15 days out from test day.

    I would also like to state that I have 7 years of public accounting experience that definitely helped me retain and relate the information that was being taught.

    Additional Comments: All sims completed. Also used Ninja Audio and Wiley Focus Notes. About 4.5 weeks of studying, but probably needed a bit more. Did not feel great leaving the testing center after some tough sims and nearly running out of time.

    Additional Comments: Less than 2.5 weeks studying, trying to squeeze in exam before my schedule got busier (and to make it within the window for 11/4 score release). Briefly glanced at Wiley Focus Notes, but essentially relied on Ninja MCQ for this section. Only did a few written communication exercises, focusing on developing a consistent form to use for the exam. Felt OK before the test. Used entire exam period, but felt like I passed when I left.

    I ran out of time and the NTS was expiring. So, the Average score was pretty accurate

    I honestly hate the number 67..... officially the worst number ever. Ugh, but 73 feels so much worse.

     

    AUD -  67 ; 73 - retake August.

    BEC - 69

    FAR - 63, 67, Retake TBD

    REG -  eventually 🙂

    MCQ style is very similar between Ninja and Exam. I didn't do NINJA SIMS. but the actual exam SIMS are easier than what i thought.

    Supplemented with Roger CPA, but did not do any of Roger questions. Hammered MCQ 2-3 weeks prior to test and had a 4 day isolation/nothing-but-studying-bootcamp 4 days before the test. Wrote notes covering the same topic at least twice. Spent maybe 1 hour looking over topics in simulation on NinjaMCQ. And on the main dashboard, I picked the weakest area and did 10 at a time until they were all about ~75%
