81! I had a cold and only slept 3 hours the night before the test. The SIMs destroyed me and I was 90% sure I had failed. I am pleasantly surprised. Now I just have AUD and BEC left.December 11, 2018 at 8:34 am #2109006

Felt like I got hit by a bus and then run over by a train walking out of REG. Just found out that I passed with an 89. The CPA Exam is going to put me through more emotional trauma than 5 high school relationships. Congrats to everyone who passed!December 19, 2018 at 6:29 am #2119902December 19, 2018 at 9:39 am #2120430

Feeling very bad walking out the test center after taking REG, the worst of all four. Thinking that there was a high chance that I would not pass. But I did. Stopped study for the first half of 2018 but now i am finally done all 4. I Used Becker notes and practiced with Wiley online test banks only. I think knowing your materials and practicing on one provider's questions are sufficient to pass CPA exams. It is most important that you review questions (MCQs and TBSs) that you answer incorrectly and understand the reason why incorrect. Don't get hung up on low score during practicing, that pave the way for higher scores in the real exams.
All the best of luck!
AUD – 91 – Sept 2017
FAR – 92 – Jan 2018
BEC – 88 – Sept 2018
REG – 85 – Dec 2018December 19, 2018 at 6:56 pm #2119434
Have no idea how I got a 99! That is amazing, so pumped up. I feel like a got a few wrong, so they must have been pre-tested questions. First off, I have four tax seasons under my belt and been working in tax for four years, so that definitely was a big advantage. I used Roger and watch all of his lectures, most of them twice. Then I read and reviewed his book probably twice. Also, I took about 1,400 MPQ and maybe 30 TBS practice questions. As a secondary review, I skimmed through the very detailed Surgent books which are very detailed and picked up some good tidbits that helped. I would definitely focus the majority of my time studying on all of the tax portion, that will come in handy the most with the TBS. Also, for the research question I would definitely take some time reviewing the structure of the IRC to help you navigate. Also, keep in mind that the IRC is available to help you with your MPQ and TBS as well and not just for the research question. Good luck and on to Audit!December 19, 2018 at 7:23 pm #2121891
99? Superb job Kevin! Now AICPA will call you!December 19, 2018 at 7:32 pm #2121906

I also passed with a 76! I'm halfway done and I have a re-take in less than 3 weeks.February 4, 2019 at 7:55 pm #2200312
I got 85. REG was the hardest exam in my life.February 5, 2019 at 9:47 pm #2202982
91 don't know how I got it, I felt I got a 60.
I didn't feel my exam was that hard, but I still wasn't sure I got the answers right. I guess I did better than I thought.
FAR was hard, glad I passed with a 77.February 7, 2019 at 12:27 pm #2205193
I am done! Thank you another71 for reminding me that I was not the only one going through this soul crushing experience!! Word of advice – do the time. It took me three times to get REG which was the hardest for me. First attempt I studied for three weeks and got a 72. Second attempt I studied for a week and got a 66. Third attempt (under the new tax code) I buckled down for over a month (even took official leave from work) and I got an 83.
Best of luck to everyone!March 7, 2019 at 12:13 pm #2253798
