    First of all that's what s…nvm

    Sounds like you had a pretty ok experience overall. I've heard (and experienced) much worse and people still passed.

    Took BEC yesterday as well. I personally thought the MCQs were more difficult compared to Becker. The SIMs took forever to complete. The amount of individual calculations they required blew me away. I’m totally unsure how I did on the writing portion, but I’m hoping it was enough.

    Jona, I would say definitely make sure to know Corporate Governance, COSO/ Internal control, & IT. And then make sure to know cost accounting well (variances, JPC, Equivalent Units, Step Allocation). Then Financial management/ economics. But for that I would say get at least the basics down

    AUD: 84 (4/18)

    BEC: 88 (3/19)

    FAR: 6/10

    I took BEC this past week too and honestly it's so hard to tell how you did. The mcq were challenging but I generally could narrow it down to two answers. The first set of sims was also pretty tough but I felt good about the second set. I have no clue how they grade the essays but I was able to write a fair amount and knew a bit about the topics so we'll see. Best of luck to you! Can't believe I'll have to wait until 5/23 to find out. Luckily I find out about AUD on 5/7!

    AUD - Results 5/7

    BEC - Results 5/23

    FAR - 85

    Doing my final review to sit for the exam on June 10th. I feel ok about all sections except for Cost Accounting. I think I'm more nervous about the Sims than I am about the MCQs. I guess I'll have keep drilling the formulas and ratios.

    FAR: 76*, 75
    REG: 78*, 85
    BEC: 80*, 76
    AUD: 76*

    All scores expired, let's try this again.
