    According to the AICPA, the enhancements include:
    • Answer rationales and related Exam Blueprint information (reference, skill level, task statement) for Task-Based Simulations (TBSs)
    • Model answers for Written Communication (WC) tasks

    Tempted to check out the new sample exams just to see the WC examples.
    What do you guys think? Helpful resource?
    I know it was always a pain to try and figure out the answers if you got it wrong when they did not provide explanations.

    the answer rationales would be a huge plus, I'll definitely check it out

    FAR: 78*, 75
    REG: 76*, 85
    BEC: 79*, 76
    AUD: 79*, 93

    All scores expired, let's try this again.

    So I got the first 4 MCQs on BEC correct, STILL GOT IT!!!
    Then I got the to the variance and saw it's almost 5pm and said screw this.
    So happy I never have to deal with variances again.

    The BEC written example is interesting, almost complete fluff.
    They aren't kidding about just restating the question. Seems the first 2 paragraphs are just a restatement of the original question, then one of the pros, one of the cons, and a summary that restates the second paragraph. I think I “tried too hard” on the WC portion of my exam.

    Forgot there are 2 WC's in the sample exam. The second one is a little more hardcore.

    Thanks for sharing! I think it is a helpful resource. I checked out the AUD sample test and it seems like they modified the TBS which is a plus.
