I checked scores in CA this morning (9/15) and they released it one whole day early. I passed FAR! I have BEC left and I'm done. Hope I can make it 4 for 4.September 15, 2020 at 1:37 pm #3104462EmmaParticipant
Congrats to all who passed, reading your posts keeps me confident for the 10/9 score release!September 15, 2020 at 3:00 pm #3104558JenParticipant
I am glad to see that I am not only one struggling with REG. I took it cold turkey, no studying and got a 72 then I studied, using Wiley and got a 73. I can not figure out what I am doing wrong or how to go about getting over this hurdle. I have been working for a CPA for 25 years and just finished my Masters. Any suggestions?September 15, 2020 at 3:00 pm #3104561CPA4Sure29Participant
So happy I passed Audit! I was so scared because I was not too confident on how my exam went. I guess I just did enough to pass. lol. Congrats to all who passed and dont give up if you did not.

I am writing herein because I have read many posts on the forum that sort of inspired me to keep going (and ultimatly helped me to cross the finish line) when things looked daunting and now I would like to share my success story so that it may help a person or two that could be going thru similar ordeal.
Some back story:
I was an Economics major and thus I had limited exposure to accounting and to make things worse I did not take financial accounting (usually acc-101) in college as I had taken many CLEP exams and earned credits for those exams from my regional college in order to graduate early (in 3 years) + to save money that my parents did not have and luck would have it one of the exams that I had earned a credit was Financial Accounting (self taught in about 8 weeks to pass the exam). I had no idea I would pursue to become a CPA and hindsight taking those classes could have at least made things easier.
I have gotten an MBA afterwards and I have total of 15 credit hours in accounting which suffices for my jurisdiction (Alaska) and thus I am THE bare minimum (possibly positioned myself to failure from the very beginning) qualified guy to take these exams. Oh, I also have 3 kids (all under the age of 5).
I started with debit and credits (and this is not a hyperbole). There were so many helpful videos out there on youtube and I watched many videos (mostly 2x the speed) to get me thru all of the exams.September 16, 2020 at 4:42 am #3105410
I will write few tips for each exam a bit later but I am glad I am done and wish all of you best of luck!!September 16, 2020 at 4:49 am #3105413
How did I study?
(I) Financial Accounting and Reporting:
I had read over the Gleim review book (btw their videos are completely useless) and I did 600 MCQ over the last month and read over the core concepts (Gleim) along with and Ninja notes 2-3 times. The notes are easier to go thru and helps me to stay engaged. Lots of videos on youtube that helped.
Video channel titles: 1. Accounting made easy 2. Accounting instruction, help, how to 3. Farhat accounting
Read thru the book and watched lots of videos on youtube (mostly Farhat Accounting and for this guy you have to watch it 2x the speed otherwise you will not get thru the videos but his explanations are dead on point so it was easy to grasp). I did not do many MCQs but just watched those videos (had the study outline out so that I made sure I watched videos on all of the covered topics).
This one was just straight memorization. I read thru the book twice (taking notes each time) and did c.300 MCQs. I did not watch any videos for this section.
Read thru the book once and did 800 MCQ.
So let me end it here ( a lot more I could write here) before the post becomes too long to read for people like me but I hope some of the tips are helpful to some and my story helps others to keep going and get it done.September 16, 2020 at 9:10 am #3105488
