I passed Auditing and I now have two exams out of the way! I finally passed a few weeks ago, and what a weight it is off my shoulders. All I have to do now is focus on FAR and REG and my CPA exam will be complete. This was my second time taking Auditing, as I did fail once over the summer, but I can say studying is much easier the second time around. For anyone out there struggling, or upset because you failed a part, understand that all the time you put studying in the past is still valuable, so don’t let too much time escape from you. Get right back into studying and the information will still seem very familiar. To go along with this, schedule your exams right away. If you fail, schedule your next exam, and you will immediately begin to base your study schedule around the exam. Waiting will only cost you valuable time. I personally am taking one exam approximately every two months, which I believe is a good standard, and very reasonable. It gives you 8 - 10 weeks to study, which means one Becker lecture every week, with a week or two at the end built in for review. Ultimately, just schedule your exams, get yourself a schedule for studying and stick to it as best you can and you will be fine.
As for me, I have been keeping busy at work, but I am still finding time to study. I have moved on from AUD and have started studying for FAR, which I am scheduled to take in mid-January. So far I am slightly behind my schedule but these next couple weeks I plan on catching up. I will keep you all posted on everything, and best of luck to all those studying!
