Time remaining indicator on Prometric screen

This CPA Prep Tip concerns the time remaining indicator on your Prometric computer screen.

Your time remaining will be reported in hours and minutes and not in minutes alone. Auditing & Attestation is 4 hours in length, and it will be reported in a countdown in terms of hours and minutes. Accordingly, you need to think hours and minutes and note the fact that if you budget 45 minutes per multiple-choice testlet and 90 minutes for the Task-based simulation testlet, you should complete your first testlet at 3 hours and 15 minutes, your second testlet at 2 hours and 30 minutes, your third testlet at 1 hour and 45 minutes, you should finish your fourth testlet with 0 hours and 15 minutes. As you practice answering questions on the computer, think hours and minutes, not just minutes.
