this is my first post here.. i have been reading the forum for a long time but just decided to join.Here is my story... I have a bachelors and MBA in accounting.. I registered for the 1st time in august 2011 to take the exam in California.. I worked 5 years in a CPA firm and now I work part time in the CPA firm and full time as a senior accountant for a non profit. Needless to say my time is all taken up noo free time .Im married but no kids:) just 3 pomeranians <3... anyways in 2011 I registered and took my first test FAR and failed miserably with a 32 I didn't study and just went in to take the test since it was already paid for.... I had becker materials.. in 2012 I took BEC and failed with a 45 again not studying was the issue....FAR again and got a 34. I had health issues during the year so i decided to leave the testing aside... Here I am today just submitted my $50 reapplication fee and I want to take BEC in November if my NTS comes quick and theres room for testing. I will begin studying this Monday i just purchased ( Yaeger videos 2013, handouts, wiley text book, ninja notes, ninja audio, and I plan to purchase the MC's Jeff has in the ninja store) I also plan to follow the studying schedule Jeff has posted..... I am just confused as to what to do... is it enough time to study from now-November for BEC or should I wait to test in 2014? will my materials still be good for 2014 or is there changes expected? I know there are a lot of requirements that are new for 2014 but Im sure i meet the requirements since all my education was in accounting and the CPA's I work for will sign my paperwork for experience requirement. My MAIN concern is whether im gonna be stuck with materials that will be useless....... :(
any tips or advice on what to do..? wait for 2014? or try to test in November if I get the NTS on time? any materials that are helpful to you that I dont have yet.. Im willing to purchase anything that will help me im desperate to pass this time!
