Waiting on McKan and Mtaylo….November 4, 2016 at 6:21 am #1312262mtaylo24Participant
Congrats @Sticky Nicky and Re2pect (now go crush Reg)! Ms. BEC told me to go sit back in the corner smh.November 4, 2016 at 7:32 am #1312286
@mtaylo24- I actually want to punch someone in the face on your behalf. I am so sorry. Hang in there… you WILL pass it next go round!!!
CONGRATS! @Sticky Nicky and @Re2pect WE EFFING DID IT!!!!
I HATE BEC with every fiber of my beingNovember 4, 2016 at 7:58 am #1312319
@Mtaylo- I thought you had it this time! That makes me so mad! You're so close with BEC and REG there's no way you won't pass next time.
@mckan514w- I told you not to feel like you bombed it! Congrats on the matching score! One more to go!!November 4, 2016 at 8:21 am #1312352
@re2pect – you did, and seriously I have been thinking about it since 1 this morning 🙂 my test was way too heavily weighted towards one topic think about it in hindsight / more rationally the only thing I can come up with is that almost half of those questions had to have been pre-test for AICPA not to be a “big fat liar” on their %breakdowns… I don't take back one thing on my exam experience thread the whole exam seemed grossly unfair and I actually get mad all over when I think about it… and get mad when I think about how none of us know how the heck any of this is scored… BUT DAAAAMN no complaints!!!!
and ha yes noticed our matching scores!! 🙂 ONE MORE TO GO! wish I could switch with you actually liked studying for REG! ha ha haNovember 4, 2016 at 9:00 am #1312391Sticky NickyParticipant
Nice guys! on to AUD for me..good luck with your other sectionsNovember 4, 2016 at 9:00 am #1312393mtaylo24Participant
Congrats to you both! @McKan513w, your support is definitely appreciated! Like I said in the experience thread, I got robbed on a few questions due to lack of information (I know for sure this was the deciding factor) . Next time I just need to know how to manually calculate something (I didn't say what) rather than expect them to provide tables like every single testbank under the sun and study a few chapters of FAR, then I should be good.November 4, 2016 at 9:16 am #1312423
@mckan514w- I actually like studying for REG more than any other exam. Whether that will translate into a passing score is another story lol.
@mtaylo24- I know exactly what you're talking about. I got one of those questions on my exam and was like wtf is this?! I remember seeing how to calculate it in one of the books and said to myself, “I've never seen this asked and they always give you the numbers”, and never bothered memorizing the formula.November 4, 2016 at 9:42 am #1312465
@re2pect well DAMN and here I was hoping that you liked FAR better and would want to swap ha ha ha ha ha ha…
@mtaylo- know EXACTLY what you are referring to– it was on my first BEC exam and I memorized it for my second and of course it didn't show up there… but BEC seriously makes me so mad because you have to know EVERYTHING for only a few things to be tested- and then they throw in extra random stuff that you didn't even know you needed to know…November 4, 2016 at 10:58 am #1312588C / XParticipant
85 on BEC! Yay. 🙂November 4, 2016 at 12:47 pm #1312862LouParticipant

Finally!!! BEC 77. Ninja and Roger. If I can do it anyone can do this.November 4, 2016 at 3:32 pm #1313062NeedsA75Participant
I'm taking BEC on 12/8. Crushing through becker and nina mcq…Its a ton of material!!November 4, 2016 at 3:59 pm #1313114GeorgeParticipant
First time taking BEC and passed with a 76! Used Becker and NINJA MCQ. I skipped the videos and book and just did MCQ. Having two test banks definitely helps.November 4, 2016 at 5:51 pm #1313216pharaohParticipant
@CPAWarrior – When you skip the videos and the book, how do you get the basic knowledge? How do you link subjects together?November 4, 2016 at 6:12 pm #1313243ChristyParticipant
Passed BEC on a retake, missed it by 5 first time around. So glad I made it over the 75 hump, was NOT looking forward to having to take this one again.
Studied for the retake as if I had never taken the exam before. Left 2 full weeks for review,immersed myself in MCQ and flashcards drilling home the concepts. Shut everyone out and shut myself in a room, absolutely no distractions. Glad it paid off!
Keep pushing everybody!November 4, 2016 at 7:35 pm #1313293Me!Participant
A 78! So excited! 1/2 way to the CPA!!! Don't give up! This is a journey of perseverance for those of us who dont pass the first time! Congrats to those who passed and keep on keeping on for those who missed it this time. You can conquer this exam!November 4, 2016 at 7:36 pm #1313294hasyParticipant

BEC was my second exam. I walked out of the test feeling devastated. I was terribly sick on testing day and recovering from a disturbed slumber. My journey to the testing place was an uncomfortable ferry ride across the bay where my notes went unnoticed. Sniffles and sneezes accompanied me all the way to the testing site. Upon entry, I noticed at least 10 other people waiting to take their tests. Although I had arrived early, it took almost forty five minutes to get processed and in my chair. When I finally sat down, I noticed my computer was frozen. After the Prometric staff restarted my computer, I noticed that I only had 3 hours remaining on my test. “Well this is unfair,” I thought to myself. Opening up the first testlet, I was pleasantly surprised to see many familiar questions from NINJA. The second testlet was not so merciful. “Man, I don't know, maybe I'll just flag this first question and move on to the next… OK I'll flag this second question… and this third”. It all started unraveling in front of me. The further I got, the worse I felt, both mentally and physically. The poor girl next to me was probably wondering what kind of snot monster was sitting next to her as my coughs got progressively worse. The third testlet was no better than the second and I clicked the submit button feeling awful about doing so. By this time, I only had 45 minutes left for the written portion. I felt that the questions were around the same “difficulty” as the NINJA simulations and felt that I knew enough to at least pretend to know what I'm talking about. Unfortunately, I'm a slow typer and with 5 minutes left, I was only done with my drafts but hadn't reviewed them in depth. Another sneezing and coughing fit plagued me and I felt completely unable to do anything except for cover my sneezes. My throat was dry and my nose was gushing, a problem that was only getting worse each second. I submitted my WC without fully reviewing my answers and rushed to the bathroom. It's full and there are no paper towels; my misery could've been seen by a blind man. Feeling defeated, I left the test center in a state of disbelief. Unlike my last test, I didn't want to talk to anyone but I still mustered the energy to delivery the news to my girlfriend that I was coming home. When I arrived home, I melted into a puddle of self-doubt and sadness. I hadn't cried in front of my girlfriend since I ate those really spicy chillies. Once I regained my composure, I decided to call my parents and told them, “If I pass, I will go to church”. They laughed and said they'd hold me to it. I was then contemplating re-studying the section and taking it in December but reluctantly decided to move on to FAR.
Fast forward to 10 pm on November 21, the day before the score release. My life felt like it was over. My eyes were fixated on the NASBA score release timer and these forums. Although I'm in California, I felt that maybe the scores would be released at the same time. My entire night was spent hitting F5 (refresh) on these forums, waiting to see the news. I'm surprised the California Board of Accountancy website didn't crash after the hundreds of millions of login attempts by me. When I saw the “BEC Bubble” thread, that's when I decided to go to sleep. My mind was racing and it seemed almost impossible to go to sleep. I stared at the ceiling of my home, thinking about what my strategy will now be. “I shouldn't have studied for FAR…” I thought to myself. Sleep somehow managed to takeover and I woke up to the sound of birds, just 3 minutes before my alarm. Frantic, I picked up my phone to check the board of accountancy. My alarm went off as soon as I got to the “Status” tab. 86. Never have I been so relieved to see such a number. I then thought about all of the questions I got wrong. Is this a dream? No… today, the CPA exam gods smile upon me. Aw man, now I have to go to church…November 22, 2016 at 2:24 pm #1324126tmura514Participant
I really wanted that I could be a part of this page. Everything is ready for licensing except this BEC.
Dear NASBA, please be easy on my next attempt. Just be nice.November 28, 2016 at 11:11 am #1328612jairvin3Participant
