Doing My Best: AUD Exam in a Few Days

Ben is a NINJA CPA Blogger.


I have been thinking about my CPA journey so far. I have a friend from school that is waiting on his last score for REG, after which he will be done. I am hoping he does well and doesn’t have to think about another CPA test again.

I know a lot of my college buddies have passed the exam or are very close to passing it. This makes me happy and sad at the same time.

Didn’t I get the same education as them? Am I not as dedicated to passing? These are the kind of questions I tend to ask myself.

I think I have these questions because I have doubted for a long time now whether I can pass this thing or not. I then remind myself that I am 50% done … and that is not too shabby. It took me a couple of tries to pass FAR and a couple for REG, but I feel like I am starting to make some traction with this thing.

Like I said in my last post, I am taking AUD with less study time than I would like and yet I am feeling pretty good considering my lack of time. I have done the videos, I have done the questions. With only a few days left I will continue to do MCQs and try to drill down as much information as I can leading up to my exam. Then I will toss the dice and hope for the best.

Toss the dice … now that is a funny phrase to use, and probably not a very good example. Tossing dice means that my chances are completely random. It would be like going into my exam and being given a number. The number would then be randomly drawn from a hat and the first so many numbers drawn would receive a passing score.

I have to believe that my chances of passing are more than a purely random number. I have to believe that if I prepare better than the other candidates that I am more likely to pass. The one good thing that phrase does is it tells me that I am going to do my best and wait to see where the dice land. You do your best and just hope for good results.

So I will do my best in the next couple of days to study for my AUD exam. I will toss the dice and hope that in a couple weeks I will be 75% done!

Good luck studying and may the force be with you!
