One down…one to go.

I took BEC this morning. It took me about 40 minutes of waiting to get checked in, but oh well.

I think I smoked the exam…we'll see. I felt this way with AUD and that turned out OK. You never really know, though.

Financial Management has always been my weak area. I've never wanted to study it so I've always ignored it. THANKFULLY I did just about every question on Yaeger‘s list of “minimum” questions to do. That prepared me.

I also followed their advice and did every single IT question in the Wiley book and that paid dividends as well.

The exam followed the content weights released by the AICPA, so no surprises really.

One thing about BEC is that memorizing terms won't cut it. They want you to actually apply the knowledge. Odd.

REG is in 2.5 hours

This is hardcore (to me it is, anyway), […]

CPA Exam: BEC ain’t no joke

I can use slang and double-negatives when referring to BEC because there’s no essay or writing portion of the exam – at least not until 2009. I consider BEC as the second-hardest section of the CPA Exam.
