REG Taken Yesterday, Now on to Audit

I took REG yesterday. I have to admit. I don’t feel good about it.

I’m a believer in the theory that if your testlets don’t get harder you probably failed. I’m not saying that theory is true. I’m just saying I believe it.

My first testlet was easy. And my second and third testlets were just as easy. I really don’t feel like I passed this one. But I guess I’ll just have to wait until I get my score and go from there.

I’ve heard lots of people say they came out of an exam feeling horrible and then they ended up doing well on it. I hope that’s me. Haha

I prepared really well for this exam. I studied for three months and knew almost everything inside and out. Or so I thought. But really, the exams are so tricky.

For me, on many questions, there are two answers that I’m choosing from. Unfortunately, I think I always choose the wrong one.

I wish I had utilized the NINJA Audio a bit more. It’s more helpful than you think. The NINJA Notes are awesome too. I utilized those, but I think I could have done a little more with them.

My SIMS weren’t horrible. I mean, they were tough but not impossible. I know I got both research questions correct. Two of the SIMS I know I completely bombed and two others I did decent on.

I was really down on myself last night. I have been working on these CPA Exams for some time now, and I’m starting to wonder if I’ll ever be able to pass them all.

But God is in control of my life. As long as I do my part and give it everything I have, I will pass these exams on His time. I have to keep my head up.

I’m moving onto Audit next. I got a 73 and a 70 on AUD in the past. I’m going to kill it this time. If anyone has any advice on AUD, please let me know.

For those of you studying for and taking exams, don’t give up. Just because I didn’t have a good exam experience, doesn’t mean you will have a bad experience. I’m not a good test taker. Keep your head up and keep moving forward.
