Getting back on the horse...

So I studied the countless hours for BEC and FAR, took Becker Review for both also. Took the exams and didn't pass either, though I managed to make the same EXACT score on both of them...what are the chances? Trying to pick myself back up and get back on the horse, so to speak, but having difficulty in doing so. Anybody else been in the same situation/currently in the same situation?

ignoring the technical faults in the exam...

Now I… Continue

The ‘Magical’ Order of CPA Exams

"I get asked these questions at work constantly: “What part should I start with? Which is the easiest? Which is the hardest?”

My answer is always the same: there is no “easy” or “hard” section,they’re all equally and independently difficult for their own reasons.FAR is “hard” because of the sheer volume of information but believe it or not, BEC tends to be the part candidates struggle with most. AUD and REG have a slightly higher national pass rate but that does not make them any easier… Continue
