I Passed BEC, NINJA CPA Review

My apologies for slipping away. I’m sure you all know how that goes.

The last couple weeks have been busy yet exciting! I took on a new project at work involving some travel, and my daughter started 1st grade.

So with all the commotion it’s been hard to sit down and write without feeling guilty for not spending that time studying. (Yes, I still feel guilty, but the guilt for not blogging overrides…)

In my last blog I talked about my last couple weeks leading up to taking BEC, which I took at the end of this last testing window. I didn’t waste any time and begun studying for REG.

Again, using Jeff’s Audio, my MCQ Study App, and I purchased the study material I used for AUD. Mainly because I liked the format and it’s adaptive to your needs. It drills you more heavily on questions you are struggling in.

In the midst of my busy life, I kind of forgot that I was waiting for a score from BEC. I had already jumped into REG, so I felt like BEC was already behind me.

Then last week I decided to go onto the Another71 Forum and see what people were talking about. OH YEAH! It was score release week!

But it was still one day before the ‘official’ target release date, and last time I took BEC my score didn’t come out on the first day. So I wasn’t really expecting to see my score up.

I checked, though, just for the heck of it, and hung out on the forum to see if anyone else had seen their score. None for BEC yet. So I got back to work.

At about 4pm that day, I decided to give it one last shot. I hadn’t even heard if BEC scores were released, when my score popped up I was really taken by surprise. I literally jumped out of my chair and ran over to my coworker’s desk …

I PASSED!! The Eat, Sleep, Breathe BEC NINJA Audio technique definitely paid off and added 6 points to my prior score.

Score: 79
Result: PASS
Feeling: RELIEF
