BEC has finally come and gone, and I must say I felt pretty good about it. I cringe as I type that because I do not want to jinx myself.

My testlets definitely got harder as I moved throughout the exam. When I got to testlet two, I almost had an anxiety attack as I thought to myself, “What the heck these questions are paragraphs now?!” I told myself to breathe and take it one at a time and that totally helped calm me down.

I felt as though the testlet was a mix of long hard calculations and medium difficulty. The written communications were not bad for me. I consider myself a decent writer and can formulate well thought out sentences even if I do not know what I am talking about. In other words, I am good at BS!

Now the waiting game begins for my REG score and my BEC score. Oh the joys! I am trying not to let the waiting game get in my way though. I need to attack FAR at full force and pass it on my first try in order to avoid losing Audit in November. Granted, this will only prove out if I passed BEC and REG. Thanks 18 month rule!

I switched back to Yaeger CPA Review for FAR. I guess Yaeger just suits me better and I hope it works out for FAR in my favor.

I am trying to come up with a solid study plan for FAR in order to make this a onetime shot. I am open to ANY suggestions anyone may have because I really need this “win.” My study materials should arrive tomorrow morning, and I plan to hit the books this weekend.

I never understand how I get so excited for my materials to arrive, but I really do. Ask me again in three weeks though and I will probably want to pull my hair out.

I will leave you with a quote today that I saw recently and made me smile. I hope it is true for all of us and our timing is right in the upcoming weeks.

“Life is all about timing… the unreachable becomes reachable, the unavailable becomes available, and the unattainable become attainable. Have the patience, wait it out. It’s all about timing.” ~ Stacey Charter

Good luck everyone!

Very appropriate quote. I love that. I hope you pass both. Two in one window is quite an accomplishment.

I will also be studying for far with yaegar. I will order the next section as soon as I get power back after the big storm! Good luck. Awesome quote. I love reading a great quote that really hits home and makes things seem realistic and not how they appear to me in my day to day life.
