    I have sat the External Auditing exam recently :) I can tell you that it is not different from the online practice assessments found online but you need to be fully concentrated on how the examiner is asking you and how the sentence is structured but if you study the book you should pass on the first try trust me I thought that I would fail this unit but I have passed on the first time! Good luck! :)

    Just found out I passed it first try! I agree with And. I went in fearing the worst because the amount of material in the textbook is vast. But it turned out to be easier than I'd expected, with very few surprises compared to the practice assessments and Green Light tests.

    I used to read all the book and write the procedures more than once and revising them throughout the day ps that I did this after work because I work as a full time accounts clerk and I do not feel to study after work :p

    I work full time too :( as accounts clerk! :( What procedures did you read ?? There's just such a fine line between answers that it literally can go either way :( I get confused with th modified/unmodified/disclaimer answers and between procedures/objectives:/
