I am about to pay for the AUD and FAR exams but before I do I have a few questions. So once I pay, does that mean I still may have a few weeks before I get my NTS? I haven’t bought Becker (or any study materials yet) and says should not pay for a test that I’m not ready to take within 6 months. So once I schedule will I have a week or two to buy Becker before the 6 month window starts?

Typically the B4 firms pay for Becker study materials so make sure you take advantage!

Also Becker or Roger? Says Roger has highest pass rate with 88% and seems to be best value

You usually get your NTS in a couple of days. I would say buy the study material first then let pay for your tests that way you don’t lose on time.

Not at Big4 anymore, moved to industry but still working towards the CPA as a personal goal. Any chance anyone has Becker, Ninja or Roger still active they’d like to make some money back on?
