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.August 22, 2016 at 1:39 pm #815721Jeff Elliott, CPAKeymaster
We lost these awesome posts in the transition – I'll be recovering them and posting here.
I look forward to the new round of “I Passed” posts. Thanks everyone.August 23, 2016 at 1:18 am #816846Accountant183748Participant
Finally passed BEC on my third try!!August 23, 2016 at 8:19 am #817173mamatoimmParticipant
I passed BEC this time! I took it back in February, but did not pass (70).
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.August 23, 2016 at 8:53 am #817227mckan514wParticipant
CONGRATULATIONS! vannessa_ls!!! very happy for you- I know how relieved you must be to be completely done!
Congrats to you to mamatoimm— back to the drawing board for me 🙁August 23, 2016 at 12:07 pm #817695Accountant183748Participant
@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 :))August 23, 2016 at 5:51 pm #818415kschroe2ParticipantAugust 23, 2016 at 9:23 pm #818793Go.For.BrokeParticipant

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..

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.August 24, 2016 at 10:18 pm #820173livealittleParticipant
I passed BEC. it was a retake because it expired before I could pass FAR. now studying for FAR.
used Becker all the wayAugust 25, 2016 at 2:48 pm #820881thegoldstandardParticipant
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.September 9, 2016 at 1:45 pm #831238DuskfallParticipant
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.September 9, 2016 at 1:48 pm #831250ShutUpParticipant
Theres no way I passed this thing on my own merit, I had a retake date picked out, but got an 89!? On to the finale! FAR 89 AUD 88 BEC 89 REG ??September 9, 2016 at 1:48 pm #831253mselaineousParticipant
I passed with a 76! I can't believe it! I'm still in shock!!!!
