Nail the Concepts: Preparing for AUD Exam Sims

Kimberly is a [A71 product=”combo”]NINJA CPA blogger.[/A71]

Although the content for the CPA exam has not changed, the weights being applied to both the multiple choice questions and TBS have. AUD went from being 60:40 to 50:50. That is the part that freaks me out the most.

If you do better on task based simulations than multiple choice questions, these changes work to your advantage. Unfortunately, this is not the case for me.

I have always done well on the multiple choice questions. When given the correct answer, I can usually find it amongst the wrong options by using process of elimination.

Typically, I can narrow it down to two possible answers. Then, I focus on the keywords to find the answer I am most confident is correct. I’m sure I’m not the only one that can pull this off.

However, when it comes to task based simulations, it all falls apart for me. Jeff has always reiterated that the task based simulations test your true knowledge of the concepts. If you don’t perform well on these particular testlets, that could be an indicator that you may not have a true understanding of the concepts, which is always a possibility.

In addition, I often see simulations that do not remotely resemble anything I have seen in my study materials, which works against me and causes me to become discouraged during the exam.

Nevertheless, I am able to keep hope alive only because I have passed this section once before. I am determined to do it again, even in the face of my biggest obstacle: AUD exam sims. I have to nail these concepts no matter what.

With that said, it is non-stop [A71 product=”mcqs”]NINJA MCQ[/A71] from now until exam day, which is in 2 weeks!!!
