After Back-to-Back-to-Back 74s, I Passed BEC!

December 18, 2012 I Passed BEC, NINJA CPA Review

Nisha is a NINJA CPA Blogger.

Waiting for my test score two weeks after taking BEC is torture enough…but I’m happy to say that I finally beat my biggest nemesis…

I passed BEC!!

Alright, maybe I’m too quick to say “my biggest nemesis” because I do have FAR and AUD remaining but BEC was one of my worst nightmares. Scoring back-to-back-to-back 74 is not best feeling in the world.

I didn’t give up. Instead, I took a break from it. I focused on REG at the time and then went back to BEC with a bit of a fresh mind.

My next goal is to tackle FAR and hopefully take it at the end of February. Just looking at my book, it’s going to take some time and I don’t want to rush through the modules either.

That may be a lot more difficult to do because December looks like a packed schedule with holiday and a family cruise planned, but I am taking my books with me. I hope to be able to get in at least two hours a day. I can’t afford to waste a week with no studying.

One fear I do have, is trying to get a position with an accounting firm. I’m not working in the accounting industry at the moment and I’ve had a difficult time trying to get my foot in the door. I would like to start working under a licensed CPA but I don’t think what I am doing is exactly working.

For those that are currently in the accounting world, how did the door open for you?
