Passed Audit! | Ben's CPA Exam Journey

Got my AUD score report today- 87!  Extremely pumped, and twice as excited because I thought I was gonna find out tomorrow, so it was an awesome surprise!  Crazy nervous opening that pdf in the email though D:  Now I'm on to my second section, BEC, which I'm hoping I'll be ready for by the beginning of April because I want to fit in REG at the end of May so I have my summer before I start work to chip away at the behemoth that is FAR!

Anyone have info/tips for me on what to expect…

I seem to be falling into a pattern, not sure if I like it...I'll have a day where I work 9-12 hours, basically the entire day, on my Becker review--and then the next day I'll barely be able to motivate myself to do 2 hours.  Which means that the following day I feel behind and work like crazy and perpetuate the cycle -.-

Anyone have some good tips on making and maintaining a steady schedule?  I'd rather work 5-6 hours a day than 10 one day, 2 the next!

Hey!  I hope that you got positive news for the REG exam!  I passed BEC and ready to move onto the next chapter.  Now I just have to pick whether to work in industry or a CPA firm.  Good luck with FAR!

Wow, that makes me feel better!  Hopefully, I have the same experience.  I had to blindly guess on some of the questions which is never fun.  For the REG sims, I found the Becker examples difficult as well. The Sims on the REG exam didn't take as long as AUD sims, 60-70 minutes seems appropriate.  I didn't find the REG sims more difficult on the exam than the Becker examples, just different.  Good luck on your exam!  You'll do great!

Hey!  How did your REG test go?  I took BEC and feel that around 10 questions were completely absent from the Becker materials as well.  The first testlet was easy but the second & third testlet were difficult.  I have no idea if I passed and just hope that I did.

AUD was the only exam that I felt confident about after taking it, and I had very similar scores on REG and FAR.  So you might be pleasantly surprised about your BEC score.  Did you buy the additional questions available for BEC with Becker?  I haven't decided if it's necessary yet.  Good luck studying for REG.  It's helpful that you had some recent tax experience.

How's it going?  I hope the BEC test went well!  Did you notice it being a lot different from the AUD exam?  I'm going to study for BEC starting tomorrow.  It's my final section, so I hope to finish strong.

How was BEC?  I hope that it went well!  I'm going to start studying for it next week.

Thanks!  I hope that studying for BEC is going well!
