I retook BEC about two weeks ago. It feels like longer than that. I have been patiently waiting for my test score only to get the dredged 74 again. I dont know what I am doing wrong to get so close but not be able to reach the magical 75.
I dont know that I can look at my BEC study material any more than I have over the last six months. I have to re-evaluate my whole journey. While I love some aspects of my review course, Im not sure this program is for me.
To catch everyone up on my situation, my husband is going back to school to get his Paramedic Certification, something he has always wanted to do. He is set to start in January. However, our budget is beyond tight, so while I understand the advice that a review course is an investment in myself, I dont know that I can bring myself to put it on a credit card and have one more bill to worry about.
Im at a crossroads of what to do. Do I put this off until we are both working and better able to afford the expense or do I keep going forward with the Wiley book, test bank, and NINJA Study Notes?
If I wait until my husband is done with school, my current letter of intent will have expired and I will have to submit a new letter of intent to the Texas State Board under the new guidelines which, I believe, means I would need to take one more college course.
Decisions, decisions, decisions .needless to say, I will be doing a lot of thinking and praying the next few days. Any advice is welcome.
While I am undecided about my CPA journey in 2012, good luck to everyone who is still waiting to get their test results back and to those studying for tests in January.
