I'm currently waiting for my 4th attempt of FAR Score on feb 25th, but I have scheduled to take BEC ON March 8th, 2020
its my first time studying BEC and
I'm studying full time and have done only one chapter of Becker.
is it possible to cram and pass Bec in the given time?
and any recommendation will be appreciated
Thanks in advanceFebruary 22, 2020 at 11:37 am #2941515mvhooverParticipant
Sounds crazy to me, but the beauty of BEC is that everything is evenly tested, so really if you can get through all the material and feel confident enough to get a 75 then do it. But, if you aren't willing to completely disavow life for the next 15 days, then forget about it. BEC is tough. Everyone says it is the “easy” exam. That is simply just not true. The structure, I would say is the easiest. Meaning, less TBS. The essay questions are computer graded so you can get points just for having key words. I only had 5 minutes per essay at the end. It sucked, but I got lucky and still did okay. But, you have to know EVERYTHING to pass BEC. Its not like FAR where you can glimpse over GOV/NPO and still pass because you got lucky and GOV/NPO was only 10% of your exam. or REG where you can pass without being 100% on BLAW or ETHICS (because its only 20-30% of the exam). However, with BEC anything is fair game, and that is what makes it hard. You literally have to know everything or you will get destroyed.

BEC was brutal for me. I just took the test yesterday and could hardly get an answer correct on both the MCQ and the SIM. I would say read COSO and ERM and IT. Dont forget to practice the AICPA sample test. The test itself is a mirror of the sample test for the SIMS. I pray that I pass but the test was hard for me yesterday. Best of luck!
