Haiyu writes in, and I apologize if I butchered your name, Hey, Jeff, I have about three weeks out until my first exam ever for BEC. I’m freaking out on how I should be studying. I purchased the Ninja course for BEC about a week ago, and I also have Becker, however the Becker videos are too lengthy and note taking is too time-consuming. I have written notes the Cornell Method way and all of the chapters for Becker already, but I’ve not had the time to review them because they are too lengthy and I’m horrible at note taking. I have yet to finish even four out of six of the MCQs that they provided. I wanna know what is the best study strategy I can take along with the Ninja MCQs on my upcoming test.

Antiqua writes in, Do you think it’s possible to pass the FAR exam with the Roger CPA Review Cram Course only? Alright, so I saw this question in my email and they also asked it in the forum. Okay, so your question is, do I think it’s possible? Yes, I think it’s possible. I think it’s possible to pass the CPA exam doing only multiple choice because people have done it.

Is the CPA exam curved? I don’t know. That’s been one of those conspiracy theories that have been around for as long as I have been in exam land, which is over ten years. So… When you look at
Junior says, I just completed auditing. I finished the exam so fast, I’m wondering if I made errors. I just started regulation and it seems like so much information to go through in 8 weeks. Okay, if there’s, so if you told me that you finished one exam early and you went through it faster than you anticipated, I woulda said, hands down, you took auditing. So I’m a very slow test taker on exam day. I tend to just sit there and stare at questions just praying that they’re right. And so, I’m a slow test taker and I finished auditing in like 30 minutes to an hour early. I was shocked. Now, I was someone who, the exam logged me out every time.
