To follow up on last week's post, I have three days left until my Audit exam. I'm taking the advice of friends and co-workers and doing flashcards and quick quizzes until I can't stand it anymore. I really like doing the quick quizzes because I feel they are an accurate depiction of whether or not I know the material from a particular chapter. For instance, there were a good number of quizzes I scored 100% on (not worried), some I scored 80-90% on (still not worried), and one or two I scored below my comfort zone. It's those chapters, the ones out of my comfort zone, which I have revisited. I re-read the chapter and did another quick quiz to judge if I had actually retained any information. To supplement the quizzes, I have been practicing the Task Based Simulations and looking over some released questions on the AICPA website. I will be foregoing all 4th of July
activities (and every last inch of my social life until I pass this exam) to study and have taken off Thursday as an extra study day to prep for Friday's exam. I feel pretty confident at this stage of the game. All I can do now is review and cross my fingers that the exam goes as planned!
I will not be taking a break from studying as I will be going right into the BEC section. I have already scheduled my exam date for August 31st -- positive thinking! I believe the score release for my AUD exam is August 6th, so I will keep you all posted -- hopefully with good news!
Wish me luck!
