    Hi guys, i am taking my part 1 exam 11 days from now. And I'm freaking out about topics for Internal Control and Technology & Analytics. I am trying my best to study these topics, but I'm not too confident. Any tips?

    Hi Kristine, I can understand your position since I have exam in 10 days. I would suggest to write down summary from both topics and then revise them thoroughly. After that solve the MCQs and Essay questions! Thanks

    Hi Kristine,

    Those chapters are highly conceptual, and there's lot to memorize. Try creating some mnemonics for memorizing few items. But whatever you do, don't force yourself or focus too much on new materials. At this point you know what you know...utilize the remaining 11 days to reinforce everything you've learned and prepared well for. There could be only 6-8 questions from the chapters you're struggling with, and it's not worth sabotaging your preparation in other areas. Good luck!

    Thank you all for your tips and encouragement. I am practicing a lot for these sections while keeping in mind the tips that you all gave. It gave me an idea how to manage my weak points.

    At this point, freaking out will not help. So i will just make use of my time wisely, and everything will be okay.

    Good luck to all of us who are taking the exam very soon. Let's do this!!!
