As far as I can remember, the essential lesson we can get from this topic is the computation of variances-- be it efficiency or spending. Computation of variances for budgeted hours as to actual hours (efficiency variance) is quite easy; however, there are complicated concepts we need to study in standard costing, like for example the computation of variance of the budgeted overhead as to the applied overhead.
Anyway, so much for the talking about standard costing. What you need to do is to fervently study anyway. On the other hand, I want to share with you an old reviewer I'd got from my sister. I already forgot the author but as far as I know, the reviewer is quite comprehensive. It covers everything and most of the questions are also somewhat related to the ones came out during the CPA Board Examinations.
