I am DONEEEEEEEEE!!!Passed REG with a 81.November 24, 2020 at 12:13 am #3164727donnyyyyyParticipant
Finally halfway there!! Congrats to all who have passed and to those who came close, do not give up. This was my third time around with REG, developed a fever halfway through the exam and really thought the universe was giving me a sign that this wasn’t for me. Received my score one year from when I passed my first exam. Game on to get the last two out of the way!November 24, 2020 at 12:33 am #3164742

@CPAHOPE try not to beat yourself up (which I know is sometimes easier said than done). I’ve met some people that I consider truly knowledgeable in the accounting/auditing world and just overall versed in many areas in life that I’ve considered them personal and professional mentors… and now life long friends. The majority of them told me that they failed at least one (and some more than one) of their CPA exams.
I used to think the CPA exam was a test of “intelligence”, but I’m starting to see that “intelligence” is really a bad gauge. Instead I see it as more of an endurance test. I think everyone in the forum has what it takes to pass because we wouldn’t have made it this far if the CPA wasn’t meant for us. Keep going (and even take a 1-2 week break to mentally regroup, if needed) because I’ve seen so many success stories in this forum that have spanned well over 2 years, and they all have one common theme… they never gave up! You’ve got this!November 24, 2020 at 2:01 am #3164808
Thank you Road2CPA
Another bad Thanksgiving n Christmas for me lolNovember 24, 2020 at 2:25 am #3164809
@CPAHOPE look how much your scores improved…sure each retake is a new exam but you are doing something right in your studying. Maybe focus on one at a time going with FAR first.November 24, 2020 at 6:50 am #3164868
@ water congrats on passing, you should definitely celebrate with those high scores!
I actually did take FAR first. Im a cheap guy so this is definitely a nightmare for me. More money thrown at AICPA 🤢🤢🤢😱😱😱 im almost broke nowNovember 24, 2020 at 7:16 am #3164880Herb ChickenParticipantNovember 24, 2020 at 8:07 am #3164898KaitParticipant
PASSED REG with a 85!!! Sitting for AUD on Sunday, then 3/4 done!!!November 24, 2020 at 8:23 am #3164919ymak216Participant
Failed BEC again.. last time got a 74 and this time a 64! What am I doing wrong??November 25, 2020 at 7:18 pm #3166665
@ymak216 what does your score report say? Did you notice any MCQ or SIMs were harder than you expected? you need to find your weak areas and build them up. Maybe this exam happened to test more of those areas hence the 10 point drop.November 25, 2020 at 10:01 pm #3166761ayc311Participant
@cpahope, u must look at the bright side, you passed two n that’s the only thing that matters right now, so yah u keep falling off but u always gotta get back up, you did it 2 time already so what’s 2 more times?!! Don’t let this ruin ur holidays, there r far more important things in life than than a credit/no credit on few exams, enjoy n appreciate those things n that will help u stay motivated!! We r all sure u will do a lot better next time… at least 9 points more better!!November 25, 2020 at 11:35 pm #3166815
@ayc311 thanks for encouragement. Im still hurting but got to move on n get that extra 9 and 7 pts to pass next timeNovember 26, 2020 at 12:01 pm #3167064TncincyParticipant
CONGRATS!!!!!! to all that passed 🙂 @cpahope and ayc311 It's gonna be ok. Keep studying and working hard. You'll pass and it will mean more to you. It be worth it. I am trying not to cancel Far. I finally got a seat and everything that can go wrong has, but no excuses. I am going to work these days like an emergency. I'm like everyone else I am in desperate need to pass.
CONGRATS again to those that have passed one part or all.November 26, 2020 at 12:05 pm #3167073TncincyParticipant
@ayc311 I'm sorry I read the post wrong. I thought you were in need of comfort, but you were comforting cpahope. But good luck on your remaining parts.November 26, 2020 at 6:57 pm #3167364
@Ticincy thank you.. im still shaking my head in disbelief but i will move forward with a positive attitude. Good luck on FARNovember 26, 2020 at 7:24 pm #3167382
Ah mean TncincyNovember 28, 2020 at 2:37 pm #3168565ymak216Participant
Where do I find my score report? I don't see it in the CPA central. This time around I had a hard time answering the writing questions.. that's probably where the score drop happened. I didn't know how to answer those questions. And I had a hard time with the mcq that have to do with finance and capital budgeting. I don't know how to master those!November 29, 2020 at 11:15 pm #3169554
@ymak216 I'm not completely sure, but you should be able to pull it up while looking at your score.
For capital budgeting a lot of it deals with cost of capital, which takes into consideration equity financing and debt financing. Each one is weighted according to the proportion of that type of financing to all capital financing (ex: total equity / total debt + equity). A company has to pay for equity financing with dividends and debt financing with interest payments. Using the weighted average cost of capital equation a company can find how much it typically costs to secure financing.
For the Writing SIMs try looking at each SIM first and brainstorm list of ideas. That way if you forgot what to write about you can look at your list. Try to have at least 1 hour for 3 WC on the exam.November 30, 2020 at 1:24 pm #3170124MickParticipant
Are you looking at the Candidate Portal, where you would print your NTS? That's where you would find it.
