Those were difficult for me in college. As far as the length is concerned, they were lengthy in college which leads me to believe they may be that lengthy on the exam. I think the key is learning which information is extraneous and overlook it. That's the tough part.

Find the AICPA questions regarding this topic. This is what r u going to
see in the exam.

for weighted average method apply this formula

units completed
+End WIP x % completed
= equivalent units

Then if the question ask u what the cost of ending inventory here what u
do

equivalent units x ending inventory x % completed of the ending
inventory.


For FIFO

units completed (-) Beg WIP
+Ending WIP X % completed
+Beg WIP X % TO complete

To calculate the cost of the ending inventory u do the same as weighted
average method.
