AUD Passed! Now BEC Study Begins

I Passed AUD, NINJA CPA Review

Patrick is a NINJA CPA Blogger.

Hello All.

I'm finally back in Olympia. It's Sunday morning, 1 AM and I just finished final preparations for our two day cruise.

The temperature outside is 28 degrees. Inside, there is a constant battle between our space heater, and the cold outside air. Our space heater is loosing.

It's down to 57 inside and yet my son refuses to wear any blankets.

I'll get up at 5:30 while my family sleeps and cast off at first light. It's supposed to be slightly warmer today, but rainy. We don't have much of a destination in mind, but there are many options.

I hope to find a place with shore power, so we can fire up the heater and make some hot cocoa. There will be little to do but play UNO, make forts out of blankets and pillows, and read stories…. all things we could do right here, but probably wouldn't.

I passed AUD with an 84, which definitely takes some pressure off me. I started preparing for BEC, and worked through IT, Governance, and part of Economics.

I wrote in a previous post that I am not purchasing any lecture material this time – just the Wiley book and test bank that I already had. I absolutely needed those lectures for FAR, but I'm still confident I can pull this off.

Economics is a tough and boring read, though. Instead of writing flashcards, I've been writing notes in the margins of the NINJA Notes. This helps to keep things organized… for me, flashcards tend to get lost in my backpack.

I will probably re-write these notes into flashcards, later on. I will probably take this exam in early January.
