Well, these past few weeks have flown by. I took off the past two weekends, one to go to the beach on the Fourth of July, and last weekend to visit my girlfriend in Wisconsin. Who knew they actually had a beach in Wisconsin as well? For those who didn't, Lake Michigan is legitimately a beach (and that's coming from a New Jersey Beachgoer). Also, they have any type of cheese you can imagine, and it's far better than any cheese I have had in NJ. Anyway, I studied a little while I was there; however, since I have been back I kicked it into high gear. I have been studying pretty much all day, except when I take a break to eat, or go to the NJCPA Student/Mentor Night at the Somerset Patriots Game. I will be sitting for Audit this coming Monday. I feel pretty prepared, as I interned in audit last summer, took an audit class last semester, and have completed the Becker Fast Pass review of the material as well. It was surprising to me to see the stats of the Audit CPA test in relation to others, in that it is the least passed exam of all four. I do not think that is necessarily because it is the hardest material, I just think that as accountants, we are used to seeing numbers, and on the audit exam there are rarely any. What I have found is that in order to be successful, I have been reading the call of the question first like Becker recommends, and then I read the entire question, scan the answers, and then reread the question. After I reread the question I have a better idea of what it is actually asking. "Is it tracing or vouching," "Do they put this in the report, or that in the report," Reading carefully and taking my time, has helped me do better on the practice tests. Also, shoutout to Connor for posting, in my opinion, two great posts (I had no idea about the outlines, or the correlation between Becker scores and the actual exams). If this blog can help others as it has helped me already, then I'd say it's truly worth it to read. You decide for yourself! Good luck to all taking the exam and in your studies.
