Considering it is a “non-disclosed” exam, I will have to respect the agreement I signed and not get into specifics.
As I said on the boards at My CA Site, when leaving the exam I felt as if I had been pushed off a cliff and was hanging off a slim branch with vultures circling above my head. No better way to say it.
Let me add, I put in my time when it came to studying. A lot of people said Densmore/PASS/Dunlop were representative – mostly Dunlop, while Norgrove was “too hard”. Bull***t. It was nothing like Dunlop, not in my opinion anyway. It was more towards the Norgorve side if anything. However, I must say that maybe its because I just wrote the exam that I have such negative views towards it. A lot of people told me that after you write it, you will feel terrible, but that is normal.
I’m not sure how it is every year, but this year a lot of people have said that time management was an issue. Personally, I went through the questions, skipping the ones I had absolutely no idea about (approximately 4 or 5). This left me with 40ish minutes for tax, after which I was able to come back and randomly fill in those answers, picking the choice that made my answer sheet look the most pretty. A lot of other “best guesses” happened as well.
Will I pass? I hope so. I mean its weird, because for so many answers you come down to 2 choices, and at that point its 50-50. Definitely will not be getting a lot of sleep on the 21st.
