Advice for AUD retake after Loss

Hi all, I recently took AUD on June 29th and got a score of 71 (spent 3 weeks studying). It was definitely higher than I expected. Sadly I had to take a three week break in my study routine, because my grandfather passed away on July 9th. I haven't studied or looked at any AUD material over the last three weeks, but I think I am ready to get back into studying. 

1. Does anyone have any advice about starting the study process over after a loss?
2. Should I start the process over and go section by section OR start reviewing all the material?
3. How much time I should give myself before scheduling the AUD exam again?

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you! 🙏

P.S. I passed FAR in June 2021. I have AUD, BEC and REG left.

FAR 3rd Time's the charm

Eyeball trick worked and I passed FAR on my 3rd try (77)! One down, 3 to go.
Thank you Nate and SFCPA!

I took FAR twice before using the SFCPA method. The first time I got a 53 (Dec 2020) and the second time I got a 67 (March 2021). I started using the SFCPA method at the end of April 2021 and sat for my third FAR exam on June 4, 2021. 

I am using Roger's CPA review course. At first I was basically just watching the video lectures without doing much review or working through exam questions. The SFCPA method made me realize I wouldn't lose any comprehension or understanding by skipping to the questions first (which is how I studied in college anyway, but I hadn't put 2 and 2 together until SFCPA). That was the big AHA moment for me. 😀

Good luck to everyone! We got this!
