OMFG!!! I finally passed BEC with an 83, my last section. This is the end. I want my life back. Like PodMan3, I walked out of Prometric feeling lousy, but here I am. Don't know why my first reaction was to cry uncontrollably. Congratulations to everyone! For those who didn't make it, dust yourself off and keep at it.March 7, 2019 at 10:37 pm #2255058SamParticipant

Passed with a 91! I'm all done! I walked out of BEC feeling worse than any other exam and it ended up being my best score. Just shows you never really know how you do on these exams.June 18, 2019 at 6:42 pm #2487243lfranc8Participant

Everyone, bec was one of the most difficult sections for me. Up to par with far. Do not think it’s easy. The McQ on the actual test were so foreign to me. Study hard!!August 4, 2019 at 7:39 pm #2606628sunrise91Participant
Done and Dusted. Maybe i was lame or syllabus was not interesting, officially studied BEC for 15 hours tops! scored better than FAR (200 hours+)! Talk about life giving lemons.August 21, 2019 at 6:54 pm #2647506friendoflifoParticipant
88 on BEC !! I did not feel good about the exam leaving prometric at all. Just keep your head in the book and in your computer and keep on going. Do not give up!! Hope everyone passed, and if not, learn from your mistakes and get it next time!!August 21, 2019 at 7:03 pm #2647533August 21, 2019 at 7:13 pm #2647578August 22, 2019 at 7:19 am #2648535boatagorParticipant
81 on BEC! This is the only test so far I've felt okay about after walking out. I thought for sure that meant I failed. Now on to a REG retake…my nemesis.September 14, 2019 at 11:53 pm #2706534MomOnTheMoveParticipant
To God be the glory. I passed BEC (thanks in part to the NINJA MCQ (thanks Jeff)). I am finally done with the exam. On to Ethics. I still feel like I am dreaming. For the first time in almost three years, I actually spent quality time with my kiddos and the hubby without worrying about studying/score releases. To those of you still on this hard journey, keep at it and you won’t be disappointed. If I can do it, you definitely can.September 15, 2019 at 10:19 am #2706783AmandaParticipant
I passed with a 91!! I was convinced I failed. I left myself half the time I took for other exams, I couldn't study at all the week before because I was burnt out and it just went terribly. I've had different strategies with all tests but the only common denominator is drilling MCQ every single day – cumulative so you're continuing to test only on the topics you've already learned in review. This way you don't forget the earlier material.September 15, 2019 at 11:29 am #2706822GetThisCPA94Participant
@MomOnTheMove @Amanda when did you take your tests?September 15, 2019 at 12:28 pm #2706918MJ44Participant
For those of you who just passed, what was your testing experience like and what was your score? I’m not feeling all that great about my experience but I’m hoping to get a passing score.September 16, 2019 at 3:36 pm #2708523MomOnTheMoveParticipant
@GetThisCPA94 I took the test on August 30th.
@MJ44 I think I may have commented on a thread you started. This was my third attempt at BEC. I don't know who started the rumor that BEC is the easiest because it sure as heck was not for me…LOL. The first two exams were maaaaadd.
MCQs weren't bad but the SIMS were long as heck and didn't have enough time to finish. Only finished one of the WCs.
Aside from my major test anxiety, this time around I think God heard my prayers (I had to pray and trust him to take the wheel). The MCQs again wasn't bad but the SIMs were mostly drop downs, not as long and not as bad. Plus one of the SIM was similar to an AICPA practice test. I only had 39 minutes for the WC so I spent the last 2 minutes on the third WC typing buzz words (or what I thought were buzz words). I made sure I reminded myself that 12 MCQs and 1 WC were not tested so I tried my hardest to not fall victim to wasting time, especially since some of the questions may not even count so my waste time. I flagged a ton of MCQs (I will say about half each testlet) and then went back to them after answering the ones I knew for sure. I also TRIED to not panic as bad this time. Ended up with a 78. Honestly, there is no way to really tell how great or not great you do on these tests. My State does not issue score summary if you pass so I will never know how well I did on the MCQs, SIMS and WC. Praying for positive news for you.September 17, 2019 at 8:57 am #2709447runincpaParticipant
I passed with an 82 using only Ninja! I mostly just cranked out MCQ, rewrote Ninja Notes, and listened to Ninja Audio non-stop. I studied for 6 weeks and was trending 84% on Ninja MCQ. After getting a 72 on AUD, it feels good to check the box on passing my first one. Now studying for FAR before retaking AUD and then hopefully only having REG to go!September 18, 2019 at 9:47 pm #2712600PDiddy2000Participant
I passed BEC!! Now on to FAR, my last exam.September 19, 2019 at 12:35 am #2713158Tony73085Participant
I had failed with a 70 last October and retook it 09.09.19 Just passed my retake with an 85. I was feeling sick to my stomach…. glad I passed it with a 15 point increase.September 19, 2019 at 8:40 am #2713689ElParticipant
Passed BEC (again). On to REG then I'm done. Crazy it was only two years ago when I failed AUD that I figured the CPA was impossible to pass unless you were an accounting genius.November 5, 2019 at 3:53 pm #2781300VanquishedParticipant
Passed BEC with a 92. I thought I bombed it. I used all but 30 seconds of the allotted time and triple checked my written answers. I passed both REG and BEC on the first try and I thought I absolutely tanked on both of them. I studied at least 90 hours for BEC and at least 120 hours for REG. I took reg at a stupid time (July) since the tested law changed between when I started studying and when I took the test. I'm planning on taking FAR next but I worry that I'll run into the same problem with the exam changing for Q1.November 6, 2019 at 1:07 pm #2783109LilyParticipant
Can you please recommend me topics to prepare for the WC?

86 and done!November 22, 2019 at 4:37 pm #2807535DieselParticipant
I passed BEC with a 91!! Stating I am thrilled would be an understatement. It was my first CPA exam, and I walked out of the testing center feeling like I could have easily not received a passing score. Once I reached the 15 minute break (after 2 hours of dashing through multiple choice questions and 2 difficult sims), I had thoughts of whether I should just walk out and quit embarrassing myself!
Hopefully my story speaks to someone. Stick it out. Don't give up during the middle of it. I regained my strength and powered through it and I feel so proud of my work. Good luck to the other test takers! For the record, I studied an older Becker book in depth, read Ninja notes, and did plenty of Ninja multiple choice.
