    Celebratory posts are awesome…it would be great if they were in one place for the benefit of others.

    I also think people would enjoy reading the strategies of others and how they passed.

    No questions here please (I will delete them to keep it clean) … just success stories and advice/strategery from those who passed.

    I passed BEC this time! I took it back in February, but did not pass (70).

    I used Roger CPA Review for my study materials and Ninja for my MCQ. My trending score was a 67, my practice exam scores were 76 and 66. I got an 81 on the exam.

    My only advice is write your notes. Typing them/highlighting doesn't always allow you to retain the information. And practice the MCQs. I usually leave 3 weeks after I review all of the materials to hit the MCQ really hard.

    @mckan514 thank you! I am so excited and don't even know how I passed. How are you doing on on Audit? You can do it, just have to stay motivated :))

    Took BEC for the first time and got an 87! Did mostly Becker and then the week before the exam purchased the ninja mc to get more practice.

    Other than that, I purchased the flash cards from Becker and just flipped through each section until I was getting mid 70s on the progress tests.

    Audit next!!

    Just keep swimming

    Congrats all!

    Took my first exam and passed BEC with an 82!

    I used Becker self-study. I watched the entire lecture (helped, but too time consuming), and completed all of the course questions. Purchased NINJA MC for the last 8 days, which I highly recommend. I worked about half of the NINJA questions. If I could do it over, I would spend less time on my first run through the material, and more time on review, nailing the concepts and MCQ's..

    Next up, Audit!

    I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I passed with an 80. It seems that the test didn't have any IT questions that were similar to anything that I had in my study materials (I am using CPAExcel and the Wiley Test Bank). I went through all the MCQs in both programs at least once and add to that that I do light coding and have built my own computer before…and the weakest of my score results was IT. I would recommend that anyone taking BEC in the near future go and review the recently released test questions. I don't recall that I guessed on any questions in my AUD exam but I certainly did on this one and as a result I completely thought I was in for a retake.

    Also, if anyone is not sure if the Ninja notes are worth it, they totally are. I really like the high level viewpoint so I can see how a whole exam fits together and the notes help me keep the different concepts fresh in my mind.

    AUD: 82
    BEC: 80
    FAR: 68, 81
    REG: 67, 86

    Passed on my first try with an 89! My strategy really helped me a lot to remember and understand the materials. I would watch a lecture, going through and underlining along with the instructor, then I would go through that same section again on my own, and write my own notes for everything. After I was done with notes, I would then do the corresponding homework.

    I know it's a very time-consuming way to study, but by doing so I had a pretty solid grasp of the material on my first time through. Reviewing my notes was super fast and efficient at that point.

    I have no idea how these exams are scored. I passed BEC with an 85! I received the IT COSO exam and seriously thought I failed. One thing for sure: I got lucky because I was guessing a lot.

    • FAR - 81 - JUN 7th, 2016
    • BEC - 85 - AUG 23rd, 2016
    • AUD- 80 - OCT 5th, 2016
    • REG- 77 - DEC 2nd, 2016
