    Took Reg yesterday after studying for a little over two months – felt good about it going in. My mock exam scores were in the low 70s, so thought I was going to have this in the bag. Thought i did well on first MQ testlet and then the second was harder – flagged about 8-9 questions, hoping my guesses were right. The Sims were BRUTAL. I've never felt so stupid – had to use AL for so many of them and the only one I'm confident in is the research question. There was so much info in the sims and things I've never seen before in Becker and made simple topics like itemized deductions seem hard. Anyone else have a similar experience and ended up passing? Praying for a miracle on 11/22


    It sounds like you passed. If you got the research questions right and the 2nd testlet got harder, I would be confident that you did well. I got an 86 and I was confident that the 2nd testlet got EASIER, but I knew I got the research SIM right.

    AUD - 79
    BEC - 82

    REG - 86
    3 down, 1 to go!

    yeah I've heard that about the second testlet getting harder. But regardless, even if i did well on MQ, think I bombed the sims so theres a slim chance i passed


    @Lisl did you take any becker mock exams? & if so how did you score? Was the exam more difficult than Becker's Mock? My exam is 11/11. Sounds like you passed

    BEC - 74, 70, 76

    AUD - 67

    REG - N/a

    FAR - N/a

    "Whether you think you can or can't do it, your right"


    You likely passed. I did greater than comparable on my MCQs and less than comparable on the SIMs. I pretty much knew I got the AL question right and maybe 2-3 other SIMs right and everything else I was just scraping and clawing for credit. Wouldn't have been surprised if I got a 65, but felt it could go either way and as high as 85 if I got enough partial credit. Passed thankfully. MCQs is huge. Remember if you get a 95% on the MCQs you can get 55% on SIMs and still end up with a 75%…

    AUD - 81
    BEC - NINJA in Training
    FAR - 80
    REG - 82

    I took all 3 mock exams – first one got a 52 which was expected because I took it before reviewing. 74 on the second and 72 on the third


    Good luck!!!!


    I also took it this week. I flew through the MCQs but also struggled on the sims.Be glad you thought to even use te AL. I used it on the research and I am confident I got it right but the rest were tough. I know I totally bombed at least one sim, best case scenario would be half right but probably more like 20. Passing is still a possibility but I feel it could go either way. Sucks since I felt plenty prepared going in. Although my mock score on gleim was bad with only a 73.

    AUD - 85
    BEC - NINJA in Training
    FAR - 91

    I took reg on this Wednesday as well and felt easy on first testlet but second testlet got EASIER, I was like WHAT!!! Felt OK on Sims and ended up finishing 90 mins early. Now I'm getting worry because after FAR and BEC I felt I bombed it but passed. This time I feel so weird. Pray for the best….


    I think you passed.

    I took REG and thought I bombed and passed with a 78. I did one becker simulated exam and got a 52 on it lol.

    I did study for 120+ hours or so though, but I really thought I bombed it.

    AUD - NINJA in Training
    BEC - 92

    REG - 78
