Here to share with you my REG experience on 4/29
I studied for this section about 130 hours over 7 weeks. For the last 2 weeks before the exam I worked Wiley MCQs and it was totally worth it.
Even though I was feeling sick of working with them the last 4 days prior to my exam, I pushed myself and kept working around 100 MCQs per day plus 6 SIMS.
To be honest, and without disclosing information, Wiley MCQs were SUPER similar to those in the exam. As for the SIMS, well, we never know, but if you are comfortable with the basis of each topic you should be fine.
Testlet #1 was a breeze. Testlet #2 was a little more complicated, but nothing that was not covered in the review material. I found some challenging questions on Testlet #3, but still was information covered in the material that I did not pay enough attention to.
The SIMS were ok. I think that I did pretty well on 4 out of 6, once again all the topics were covered in the review. No big deal, I still completed all SIMS and left the testing center with 15 minutes to spare.
Now, the wait begins. I am really hoping to receive a passing score. It feels so good not to worry about studying and being able to do what I want with my family.
My exam was Sunday, and I took Monday off. I got a facial in the morning, had lunch with my husband and went home and cleaned the 2nd floor as I havent done in few months. It feels sooooo good.
Wishing you all the best on your CPA journey!!!
