Start from the Beginning: Six Weeks to Prepare for AUD Retake

Alex is a NINJA CPA Blogger.

Well, that didn’t go as planned… I went into the exam feeling like I knew the material, but still wasn’t getting consistent scores on the practice exams that I wanted.

I was expecting to not pass Audit the first time through, at least that’s what I told most of my friends and family, but when I actually received my score today, it still surprised me.

I had to be honest with myself after taking the test, and knew that I did not put nearly 100% into study prep leading up to the first AUD exam. I had previously re-scheduled the exam twice and I think I talked myself into not fully starting from scratch as I prepared for the exam.

This time through, I will start from the beginning and put in the 6+ weeks it takes to study for the exam the NINJA way. I plan on utilizing the Wiley Test Bank and doing a ridiculous amount of multiple-choice questions to prepare for the exam this time around.

The good news is that I now how a feel for the examination process and the areas I need to concentrate more on, the bad news is that I don’t have enough time to start over in my studying and take the exam by the end of the May test window.

This of course means that I will take it in early July and will have to learn the new material that will be tested on in July. However, I am more motivated now to pass than ever, and am going all-in for my next examination date.

Good luck to all!
