Study Groups: Trying a New Tactic for BEC

Vanessa is a [A71 product=”combo”]NINJA CPA blogger[/A71].

Hello NINJAs!

With my BEC retake coming up in the next month, I decided to switch up my usual studying and incorporate new study methods into my routine.

Usually I would do all the MCQ and then review. At times I would incorporate flash cards here and there or NINJA Notes; however, it wasn't consistent. With my recent score of 69, my study methods are obviously not enough to get a passing score.

Recently, I joined a study group with fellow CPA candidates studying for the same exam that also have test dates around the same date. We hold online hangouts and go to review sections each week.

Participating in the group helps me get a glimpse of how others approach the exam. It also exposes me to other people’s interpretations and understanding of the concepts. It’s been very helpful and I hope it will be beneficial.

I want to better utilize my flashcards and [A71 product=”notes”]NINJA Notes[/A71] this time around. Working on my Masters in Accounting helps, since it has been 5 years since I've graduated from college.

I am positive that if I keep this momentum up it will be enough to pass even with the new changes. My fingers are crossed.
