Focused on BEC + Driving Home for the Holidays
Ashley is a NINJA CPA Blogger.
I am now into the full swing of things with BEC. I am hoping to only need to watch 2 more parts as of today.
I leave today from work to go back home, an 8-hour drive through snowy passes. I will be bringing my BEC NINJA Audio on this drive with me.
I am so happy Ill be able to listen to that while I am driving since its such a time consuming thing.
As for this week, Ill be working very hard to get through most of my lectures so it doesnt kill my holiday visiting.
I will read over my notes Friday Tuesday, and then December 26 and beyond I will be studying for BEC all day long.
Ill have 6 full days to do MCQ, so I am going to stay focused so I dont eat into that time with my lectures.
This BEC exam does have me a little worried. I am not the greatest with memorization, so the calculations look daunting. I just need to practice and review the equations often so that they will stick with me for the exam.
I have been watching the lectures, re-reading the book, and then doing the problems after each part. I am trying to get through the lectures as fast as I can so I can just focus on MCQ until my exam.
My workweek consists of 8-5pm for now. After work, I go home and study/eat dinner until about 10pm, and thats when I stop and I am able to call up my boyfriend. Im glad he is supportive of me taking this exam, because it makes the world of a difference.
During the weekends I try to make sure I am caught up and do an additional 2 parts.
Today my co-worker showed everyone that he passed Audit. This was his first time being able to pass that section and it was so exciting for me to see that.
I know I have only known him for 2 weeks as I just started my job here, but seeing someone I personally know finally pass a section of this exam made me feel like it can happen for me too, if I try hard enough. We are both studying for BEC now, so that is pretty nice.
