    Hey guys,

    Did anyone have trouble grasping Internal control and IT in the becker audit material? particularly A2 Mod 8+9. I got a 57 and 64 on the MCQs for them. They're both confusing to me. I guess I just gotta review the material over a few times and hopefully will make sense. My exam is May 4th.

    AUD - 40, 70, 89 (07/2019)

    BEC - 65, Rematch (11/2019)



    I was also confused so few days before test I just simply started memorizing important sentences in case I had essay and simulation on it. And it actually was a good idea! Got an essay and was able to write it nicely with memorazed concepts.

    First of all, congrats on the jump from a 40 to 70. You should be proud.
    Both topics are broad.
    Internal control- CRIME mnemonic. I like to make a list of examples of each.
    Information system- With regards to computer Assisted Audit techniques I like to remember which data the auditor use, which system, under whose control, etc. Maybe make a chart and paste it around your house.

    Giving up is not an option.

    The question is not whether I will be a CPA or not, the question is when will I become a CPA.
