Will pray for your success for FARE,try to attend all the questions&all the tab in simulations ,first try to finish the written communication,you studied hard ,if you could able to keep the time under your control that is it ,you can get those 75 %,best of luck Nadia
Especially in simulations you will be asked to pass JE for Inventory related internalcontrol questions /you will asked to correct the journal entry ,it's a standard AUD simulation Tab, so practice the simulation part for those entries ,in Becker they have updated some AICPA released simulation in 2009(you might have updated in your software from Becker web site) you will get some good idea about it.
I didn't know that you work as a auditor & you have done coursesin auditing .I am sorry don't change your plan ,as you said put at least 6 hrs a day ,.
What ever the material you are having now ,use the same one,whether Becker /Wiley .There is a website called "CPA REVIEW FOR FREE" you have 2000 qns to practice with clear explanation,i think that will be more than enough for you .
Plz do take the exam on AUG 30 2010,since you work as a auditor,practical knowledge really helps a lot in the exams
I personally feel ,if possible why don't you appear for Audit in October ,just a suggestion.Audit really need lots of practice ,still it depends on Individual.
Because these exams results are depends on how much practice you have than how extend you know the concept ,though concept are very important .
I would suggest apart from using Becker,try to use the Gleim test preparation CD .It consist of 2000 questions cost 55 $.
when i failed auditing in my first try ,my friend suggested me this ,i worked all the questions in Gleim ,so i started using Gleim for BEC (becker book ,because i already ordered becker) i got 81 in my first try.
Comparing to Becker they will make us to think differently ,questions are really tough ,you will be in standard for CPA exam.
For Fare i am using Becker book &Gleim test preparation cd ,for simulationn using Becker ,but working out Gleim question will really take time .I really have no idea about the gleim book or other product.
Suppose you do not want to use Gleim ,atleast for the units A-1 and A-5 work out gleim questions .
Hey do not be too hard on yourself ,you know Completing /or not completing does not matter to get a 75.
You know peope who ever felt they are going to fail ,80 % pass the exam.
when i took my AUD first time the paper was so easy ,i took only 30 min for each testlet,so i had more than 2 hrs for my sims,even sims were very easy i completed them in less than 1.30 hrs , i was very happy hoping that i am going to get 92 in AUD ,you know i got only 72.
Then in my second attempt MCQ were easy , i took 50 min for each testlet ,sims were horrible ,i literally slapped on my face ,blindly selected the answer , i am not good at communication ,so i never expect that to help me.when i came out of the center ,i told my husband .I am going to fail.
I got 77 ,i passed ,we never know but i personally feel you will come in flying colors.
In CPA they value only one sim,not both .so cheer up now.
Take rest for the whole day.Start for the next exam tomorrow itself.
