Beckers CD for Audit
AUD - Heavily tested topic
regarding scope limitation
question on internal question
Test of control and substantive procedures
Hi All, I am planning my study for AUD and schedule it in April. Could anyone tell me how they study and how many hours they put into each week? THanks!
The SIMs did seem to concentrate on decision tables; if/then scenarios. I would particularly study scenarios to determine when control risk, sampling risk, and/or inherent risk are being affected. The best way I know how to do this is just do as many SIMs as possible, over and over again, and to understand the basic differences in the audit risk model.
Hello Kirsten Keller,
where Can I get more information about decision tables?
Anthony, I used Yaeger which comes with a Wiley book and access to a Wiley database for practice testing and I passed AUD my first try with an 80. I'd say they are pretty good materials.
I had a few months between my last test and this one so I was shooting for as close to 100hrs as I could. Lunch everyday for 30 days (30 hrs). Half and hour to an hour each night after the house winds down (15-20 hrs) and around 6-8 hr each weekend (30ish). Plus I was taking the Becker class in Tampa so that's an extra 20 hours of lecture time over the whole section.. I really hope I can pass this time.. I was only a few points away first go around! I didn't realize it was still taking so long to get the scores. I guess I was lucky last Nov when I tested the last day of the window and got my score in less than a week!
@ Darren - the clock starts ticking the day you pass the first test, so since you took BEC in April, the clock started in April. I had the same thing in November 2010.
@ Anthony - I recently took audit for the 2nd time. I am an auditor for the non-profit industry and I studied a 1-2 hours a night and usually half the day on saturday and all day until (until the giants play). Hopefully I passed. Now I'm trying to study to take BEC for the 3rd time - smack in the middle of tax season where I work with real estate entities.
And another thing...how much time is everyone spending studying for their audit exam. I'm feeling swamped on certain days of the week, so I can't imagine getting in 2 hours each night of the week plus weekends. I can see myself giving it 10 hours max and I'm re-taking the exam. I scored 69% (down from 74%) in October and I REALLY REALLY want to pass..!!! Thanks!
Hey - does anyone here have some input in how good the Wiley test materials are? I am using Bisk and I have come "close" to passing Audit but I think I need some additional resources....and what do you recommend, the software or the book?
@ Kirsten - that's looking outside the window at Dominican University in River Forest , IL - where I went to study bright and early Saturday morning...I thought so too. So, the inspiring scenario helped me stay a little more focused...and the library was super quiet since all the college kiddies were sleeping still at 9 am! :)
