Hello. I am totally drinking down my Diet Dr. Pepper with a super bold cup of coffee on my desk. Feeling pretty caffeinated. It’s been a fun two months going thru Auditing, and now I am in the final stretch. I test on Tuesday and can’t wait to move onto BEC. But before I get ahead of myself, I want to share what my routine is this week.
I am risk managing my focus areas, meaning last time I tested for Auditing, I didn’t get a single question on IT; so I am spending very little time, if any on IT. However, I am reviewing each of the major areas where I got lambasted with questions. I gave up on my Wiley homework book and am focusing solely on the software, which by the way is more closely worded to the actual exam.
So I am plowing thru each major section per night, reviewing ALL of the questions and redoing those I got wrong. At this point, having spent nearly 300 hours studying for Auditing, I can pretty much quote Roger’s text book and my employees are getting sick of hearing about why it’s such a CRIME to not know what things to communicate with the Audit Committee when the Auditor DISAPPROVES of something. Gotta love those PIPS.
I am saving all of the simulations for the weekend and plan on doing a very light basic review Monday before my exam. Last time I tested for Auditing, I mentally put myself into a panic, a much needless panic. Monday, I plan on relaxing, spending some time with the family, and yes, catching up on the Big Bang Theory.
In the words of one CPA Exam Instructor/Guru – if you study, you will pass. I studied, now all I have to do is answer the questions.
