Hello everyone!

I've had a very busy week that has thrown my whole study life into chaos. I started a new job, my first in the public accounting world, a week earlier than I had initially anticipated.

This led me to realize that with my new work demands there was just no way I was going to be ready for an August 8th test date.

Knowing that I would have to pay the rescheduling fee as I was within 30 days of my test date, I went into the Prometric site just hoping for at least a new date that would give me 2 extra weeks. I was very pleasantly surprised to find a date at the very end of the month. These had all been full when I was initially scheduling as they are seemingly the most popular dates.

Rescheduling for the end of the month has already made me feel a bit less stressed out, and I am glad to say that it was probably the best money I’ve spent on this test just to get that smidge of relief.

So now in my less crazed state I am creating a revised study plan to get through the rest of my BEC studying. I still need to finish my first round of notes and do MC questions. See why I knew 2 weeks wouldn’t be enough time? Any hints on what I should try and focus my newly purchased study time on to not have to take BEC for a 3rd time?

Good Luck to everyone testing this week!

I don't know what study guide you're using, but on Becker 3 and 5 you will need to set aside a good chunk of time. Good Luck!
