    I know I posted earlier about Final Exam #1 and my results on it and I got the general response that the Becker practice exams are harder than the real thing, but I was wondering, of those of you who’ve done the second practice exam in the 2012 Becker and have taken FAR, how did it compare? I felt like it was far harder than #1 and felt like I was failing the entire time I was taking it. I have FAR on Monday and feel like i’m just not ready yet. My scores are as follows:

    Testlet 1 – 73

    Testlet 2 – 73

    Testlet 3 – 70

    Simulations

    Number 1 – 67

    Number 2 – 100

    Number 3 – 100

    Number 4 – 100

    Number 5 – 39

    Number 6 – 81

    Number 7 – 100

    I hope you’re right mgoloubenko, I really want to put this one behind me right away.

    I am really confident that you will, you have basically a 73 in MCQ and an 82 in Simulations that’s about a 77 with the 60/40 weight distribution!

    That should fall in the 82-87 range on the real exam. The unofficial rule is to add 10-12 points to your becker mcq scores.

    I always felt that becker final exams were harder than the actual exam, but then again I failed FAR the first time b/c I only allocated 50 minutes to the simulations. I ended up scoring “higher” in the multiple choice but completely bombed the simulations. You will be fine…just manage your time. I didn’t consider that when I first took it and I was so confident with the multiple choice, but then I saw the simulations and was blown away. Didn’t get a chance to calculate not ONE simulation. It took me 20 minutes just to read them. good luck on Monday! I’m taking it on Friday. Please let us know how you feel after you take the exam 🙂

    I’ll be sure to post how it goes, unfortunately I won’t find out my score until June. I don’t graduate college until May and NASBA won’t release scores until after I send them my final transcript.

    Man those are some really good scores, I got scores between 57-80 range on the mcq’s, there’s only 2 as well so I can’t keep trying.

    Well, took the test today. I felt like it was harder than the first Becker final but easier than the second. Not sure if I passed or not but I was able to complete everything at least with 30 minutes to go. Now just have to wait until June to find out my score.

    hey @nfs480,

    idk about far practice exams……….havent even taken them yet and i ve got less than a week >.< i am trying to avoid the inevitable

    but anyways…the practice exams arent that great a gauge…they say add 10 points and that is generally going to be your score, but i took audit practice exams for becker and i got 67’s on the mcs. came out with an 86…

    i am hoping to get scores like yours for the practice exams…………..that would be a confidence booster
