Tori is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger.
I have definitely been putting in lots of time studying in the last week. I am concerned because my exam is in less than a week (scheduled for the 24th) and I have not finished going through all of my materials.
I still need to cover sampling, audit evidence, and a little of internal control. My NTS expires in June, otherwise, I would have not taken it this window.
On the positive side of things, I really feel that having spent some time working as an external auditor has definitely helped with my understanding of the topics covered.
I am still drilling on the MCQ, and reviewing the NINJA Flashcards, and NINJA Notes. I have found it most helpful to use the NINJA Audio and Notes to get me mentally prepared to delve into the more detailed books. Then answer the MCQ, then use the Flashcards as reinforcement.
Fortunately, my scores on the MQC are making me feel confident that what I am doing is helping me to prepare for success on the AUD section of the exam.
The next time you hear from me, I will have sat for 3 out of 4 sections of the exam. I know for sure I will be retaking FAR, but I am still waiting on my score for regulation. Don't worry, when I get the news, I will share it, good or bad.
Have a great week studying NINJAs!
