Are you supposed to write To and From and end with Sincerely, “Your Name”. Just want some clarification. I did not do well the first time around, probably because I did not know what I was talking about and wrote short paragraphs. I had a To and From, but no closing. Wonder if I got points taken away for that too.
I finally passed this beast on 10/26/2011 after getting a 74 in the prior window. Don't be too hard on yourself a 73 isn't a bad grade. I used Becker and listened to their lecture on WC and did what they suggested. I used Regards, and then my name in my memo's. I had no clue as to what I was writing about and I passed with a 78, I did what Becker said to do and it worked for me. I addressed the topic in a well written format – used key words and accounting verbage but as I said I didn't know what they were asking so what I wrote was essentially well written garbage. Because of this I believe the essays are scored by the computer and are not read. Just stay on topic as to what you're asked and you should be fine.
Thanks, Sherrid. Did you write To and From at the beginning of your memo?
To/From: Not needed, it is already included, just start typing the body of the letter.
I got a booklet from Gleim when I asked them to send me information about their CPA products, and it showed me some great examples of WC's. They gave examples of level 3 (average) level 4 (good) level 5 (exceptional) WC letters.
No one ever mentions dating……I dated mine.
Also, good to include a proper closing such as:
[Your Name Here]
[Your Name Here]
I didn't date my WC letters, but I did put a proper closing. I think the date is included on the top of the letter, so we don't have to duplicate it.
