    I took BEC yesterday and studied the hardest I’ve ever studied. I’ve passed FAR, REG, and AUD the first time but kept failing BEC in previous quarters. I got a 74 once. Ha.

    I felt like BEC yesterday was way too easy compared to all the other times that I’ve taken it.

    My exam experience-

    The first testlest was super easy. I can’t tell if the second testlest got harder which is scaring me. The questions were less wordy and just weird conceptually. I’m used to knowing I did well because FAR had long wordy MCQ in the second testlet, which made me feel like I did well on the first testlet. I’m not sure if this has happened to anyway and passed they’ve passed BEC? My sims were probably the easiest thing in the world. I can’t believe how easy they were because in the previous quarters BEC sims were brutal. I saved an hour for WC. They were also easy but I spent 30 mins on the first one, 20 mins on the next and barely had time for the third WC.

    Again, I did everything for BEC this time- I watched the lectures (I’ve never watched lectures for any other exams), took notes, did all of Becker’s MCQ, rewrote my notes, did NINJA MCQ to 45% into the assessment phase and then reset, redid Becker’s mcq, and redid the NINJA MCQ to 60 percent into the assessment phase with an 87% trending and an 81% average, and finally read my notes and book until I hated it. As you can see I over excessively studied. It was annoying because a lot of what I studied wasn’t on the exam but obviously what was on the exam I understood because I studied so much. Again, this is my last part and don’t want to lose credit for the exams that I’ve passed.

    Oddly, I enjoyed studying for the material in FAR, REG, and AUD. I hated studying for BEC in the previous quarters until now. I imagined myself as the expert consultant as much I could in order to pass BEC.

    I’m having trouble not being a nervous wreck because all I want to do is know that I passed. But then the other half of me doesn’t want to check my score on Dec 11th because I’ll be away for work that way.

    Sorry for the ramble but I thought I’d share my BEC experience with anyone thinking this truly is the hardest exam. I’m praying I passed this and can move on in my life.

    AUD - 75
    BEC - 76
    FAR - 82
    REG - 81

    I was always under the impression that BEC was suppose to be the “easier” one relatively speaking until I started reading people's BEC experiences on here. I haven't even started studying for it, and am already nervous.

    AUD - 77
    BEC - 79
    FAR - 75
    REG - 80
    Won't know until you try.

    @youcandoit I don’t think you should be nervous about BEC. I was on the same boat with thinking that BEC was the easier of the four exams. I never gave it the respect it deserved in prior quarters. I tried to make up for that and studied my butt off this time around.

    Also, I never was a business guy (which is literally what BEC is). I’m an accountant and used that to my advantage on FAR, REG, and AUD. I had to force myself to like BEC just recently which hopefully helped me.

    AUD - 75
    BEC - 76
    FAR - 82
    REG - 81

    If you thought the sims were easy and you were able to go over them thoroughly without rushing then I think you probably did just fine.
