I just took the exam yesterday after failing last month with a 68. I had been using WileyCPAexcel to study, which is what I used to pass FAR, but when I took BEC last month I really felt like Wiley did not prepare me well for the exam. There were a lot of questions that seemed like the material didn't even touch on. Anyway, this time around I used NINJA, and coming out of the exam I felt pretty optimistic. The MCQ was much more fair than last time and the SIMS were easier. I totally BSed the writing though and I know I got at least one of the writing completely wrong because I had no clue about the topic. But I made sure to nail the format for what the memos should be. Overall, i had to guess on a good amount of MCQ, i think i did pretty good on the sims, and i think i did fair on the writing for the most part. Is there any chance that I passed?? Won't find out until August 6th.July 19, 2019 at 6:19 pm #2569206Pork Flavored BaconParticipant
Based on the information provided, you have, without question, passed this exam. On to the next challenge! Do you plan on taking AUD or REG next?July 19, 2019 at 6:57 pm #2569335allusucParticipant
Just took the exam. By far the hardest exam compared to the other 3. I passed the other 3 first try. This one, I made almost all guesses on the first testlet. Second testlet was easier which means I didn’t do well on the first. Full of computations on the first testlet. I studied using Rogers and was able to pass the other 3. Really sad right now.July 20, 2019 at 8:37 am #2570337
@pork flavored bacon Thanks yeah i hope so i’m so done studying for bec, on to audit nowJuly 21, 2019 at 10:05 am #2572587
@allusuc yeah I felt like it was really hard especially the first time around, the second time was noticeably easier, which goes to show how much each test can vary. a lot of people think Bec is the easiest but I don't think so. Honestly felt like FAR was easier to study for. I'm on to audit now, not sure if I should use Wiley as my main study material and supplement with NINJA or the other way around. I think I'll read the lecture notes and do the MCQ in the bite sized lessons in Wiley. But for BEC, I think NINJA did a better job preparing me for the actual exam. Good luck, hopefully you passed and you can be done with this nightmare
