    @Zack

    I would suggest reading wiley book and reading becker book if you are doing becker; and doing questions from wiley book also. Getting the concepts are very imp. I had a test where there was a lot of theory. I was very worried about the test. Its Unreal I passed.

    Also some FAR basic concepts helped. Auditing internal control.

    Jeff Not breaking any confidentiality rules. These are all recommended by Yaeger. I just added FAR concepts.

    I definitely think reading the book will help me. I read a few chapters in Wiley but that's it. Have Becker book as well now and it seems very clear. Going to plane on reading each book a couple times.

    Trying to study smart this time. When I took it the second time I made the mistake of spending most of my time rewatching lectures. Did I learn new things? Of course, but probably not as much as I could have by reading the book and focusing on MCQ.

    Can anyone give insight as to how the writing part works?

    Krissy there is a thread on practicing the WC, I would see that. Basically you are given a scenario and have to write a memo or letter. Mine were all memos.

    Field report – BEC contains some of the most useless info of the four exams.

    So, I think I'm doing well with the becker material. almost finished with B2 and pulling 75+ on all the sections, however, variance analysis keeps tripping me up. I don't feel as though Becker explains it very well. Does anyone else have this issue or is it just me?

    How is everyone else doing with their studies?

    @NJ agree. OH variance is throwing me. Anyone have a good way to remember it?

    Hello all. I have been kicked by BEC and will be retaking sometime in late October (not sure when exactly).

    I am using becker and can answer to ya'll that B2 and end of B1 was definitely the hardest information for me. I had to review these a few times and obviously need to review them more. I also think B3 is very important. I am thinking about purchasing Ninja MCQ to supplement but haven't decided yet. I am going to see if my score breakdown will help me out to see where I need to improve or where my strengths are. This test is just tricky. Is anyone using Ninja MCQ here?

    Unfortunately it looks like I'm studying with you guys to take BEC in the 4th quarter. Planning on retaking in October. If I don't pass then, REG expires.

    @Lauren, to answer your question from the score thread.. I am using Becker. I had used Gleim in the beginning and determined it was sufficient for my studying.. i just didnt like the way they outlined it and such. B1 and B2 went okay for me; however, variance analysis is a little whacky and I'm not sure I like how it's expalined. I will finish that section tonight and begin B3 soon as well. I'm really sorry you have to take it again, a part of me think it's my fault. lol
