FAR Exam Experience + Starting AUD Again


Sylvia is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger.

Hi NINJAs!

So it has been about a week since I took my FAR exam. Although I had taken many exams before, this was my first time attempting FAR.

I had a few observations. I don’t know if anyone else felt this way but this is how I feel. I thought that there was so much information to cover in my review process that I was trying to at least get a taste of everything (this was achieved much by the NINJA Audio).

I felt on the actual exam that they had a tendency to test on a lot of things but a few topics they tested heavily on. I guess you could say I was a little upset since they didn’t test me on a lot of which I did know.

I also thought that the simulations were harder in comparison to the multiple choice versus the other sections. These are just my observations but I figure if I don’t pass then I know a little bit more on how to conquer it next time.

Immediately after my exam I took a nice girls trip to Austin and was able to relax for a few days. I have to travel once again in a few days and my parents are coming to visit. I was going to try and fit in 2 exams next month but I have decided to stick to only one since I don’t want to cram too much in.

I thought that since I had a pretty good score on AUD last time that I could take a few weeks and just go over NINJA Notes and just do multiple choice till I can do no more. The lecture material is still pretty fresh in my mind so I figure that would be the best for my next attempt.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend and good luck on your studying!!
