I was putting off this post a couple of days last week solely because I was waiting for my REG score. I had been waiting about a month and it was killing me.
As a recap, this was my third attempt with REG. When I took REG I was just getting over having my appendix out. I actually put off my test because almost a week because I felt like I was too drugged with my medication to stay awake and alert long enough to take the test. I went into the exam as ready as I could be.
The multiple-choice questions were around 5 times harder than my previous two attempts. Then the sims were difficult but once again they were a lot harder than my previous experience. I left feeling like I did okay with the multiple choice but I didn’t think I did well enough with the sims to pass.
As I said, I had to wait a month and it was killing me wondering. Well, last week I finally got my score. I am happy to report that I received an 86 on my REG exam! Not a bad score. I am very happy to have that test behind me. I now have FAR and REG behind me.
50% done is a good feeling.
I am currently studying for audit. I only have another 3 weeks to my exam. My NTS expires at the end of this window so I am trying my hardest to get ready for it. I still have 2 chapters in my materials to finish. I am hoping to finish the two chapters soon and focus the rest of my time getting ready for the exam by doing multiple-choice questions.
I am finding that audit is starting to become a little easier. I mentioned how audit seems a little like a foreign language to me. I have only taken FAR and REG up to this point so I am hoping that I will have a good experience with AUD as I have a baby coming in May and I would really like to be finished with the rest of my sections before that happens.
Well, the party is over. It back to studying AUD. Keep up the good work!
