BEC Study: Intense Notes, MCQs, and Review

Tori is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger.

Hello NINJAs,

It has been a couple of weeks since I have written a post, so before I jump into 4 days of intense studying, I will give you an update as to my progress.

Since the last time I have written, I have been feeling an utter lack of motivation to study. I am feeling disappointed in my performance on my most recent attempt at regulation.

Even though I am not happy with my performance, I have been putting in effort toward BEC. I spent about 10 days watching all of the videos from my review course and taking intense notes.

However, when I started to attempt the Wiley MCQs I realized only bits and pieces of information sank in. I purchased the Wiley book, and have essentially started my review for BEC over.

At this point, I feel pretty comfortable with corporate governance, and am making some progress towards proficiency with information technology.

I know I have not been working on this milestone in life as long as many other people have, however, sub par exam results have really taken a toll on my motivation. I really want to get over this hurdle and put the exam behind me.

Because I only have one section passed, I know that I have several months of preparation and hard work to go.

So, here is to keeping my head up, and pushing through the material. I will keep working on each module until I have attained an acceptable proficiency (80% or higher).

Hopefully I will not require more than 4 more weeks to get through the material, because I have planned on sitting for BEC right at the beginning of the window.

Well, I must get back to my exciting reading material and MCQs.

Have a great week, and happy studying.


P.S. There is nothing wrong with consuming insane amounts of caffeine to keep you awake for your study sessions!
