Hey everybody! I am 75% done reviewing my content for the AUD section of the CPA exam. Thankfully, I was able to catch up this week on the study units that I could not complete due to last week’s family vacation. I have one more week of leave, so I should have no problem meeting my goal of completing five study units this upcoming week. I will be done with reviewing all twenty study units from the Gleim AUD book by the end of this week. So, as of right now, I am right on target with my review timeline.
After I complete the twenty study units, I will spend two solid weeks reviewing everything learned in the past three and half weeks. Final review will consist of many multiple-choice questions. Study units to be reviewed during the weeks of final review will be handled in blocks of five study units per practice exam at thirty questions each. I will take and repeat practice exams in this format until I score at least a 75% or better. I will consult the Gleim AUD book for further clarification. If you have been following my previous posts, you will know that I have passed FAR using the review method described above. I stressed in earlier posts the importance of logging hours and putting in the time. I still make the same recommendation, but I want to note that the 15-20 hours a week minimum spent on one section (for example FAR) is not the same 15-20 hours of progress one would see in another section (for example AUD). What I am trying to say is that weekly progress can be gauged beyond just the hours you log. I am really gaining ground with the AUD material. For this section, I can measure my advancement by how many sections I can complete each week. For AUD, I have budgeted myself 5-6 weeks total. I am very happy with my progress. Happy studies!!!
