FAR is Finshed, My Rematch with AUD Awaits

Tori is a NINJA CPA Blogger.

Hey there, NINJAs!

What a crazy few weeks it has been. I took FAR on May 5 and immediately started prepping for a rematch with AUD.

Let me tell you, nothing is quite as frustrating as prepping for an exam section and scoring 85 to 95 on your MCQ practice. This infuriates me to no end.

You may be confused why I would be so frustrated, but let me shed some light on the situation.

I took AUD in February after losing credit for the section in November 2013. That is right. I previously passed the section, and then failed it when I took it in the first quarter.

So, I started my review and prep for my rematch, fully ready to start from scratch. I did it all: read my book, wrote all my notes, answered all the MCQ.

The problem is I am not learning anything new.

How am I supposed to focus on weak areas when I cannot identify them?

Oh well, I finished my review and spent one day relaxing and trying to mentally prepare for exam day. I will answer more multiple choice questions and attack more practice sims before getting a good night’s rest ahead of my 10 a.m. showdown.

In other news, I, among many others, am pending a wave 2 score release for FAR. I am hoping the fourth time is a charm for that section, but it is out of my hands now. I keep trying to think positive thoughts – hoping and wishing for a 75 or better.

Reflecting on my review for that section, I definitely conquered topic areas that were not previous strengths. I hope my score reflects the additional knowledge and skills I gained.

Wish me luck on AUD, and hopefully I will have a happy score release.

Catch you later, NINJAs.
