    I had a question today on BEC that was a very straight forward formula and I am CERTAIN that I had the correct answer, but the correct answer was not one of the choices. I’m pretty sure they’ll just throw out the question but has anyone ever encountered this???

    I haven't logged into this site for awhile, but had to now so I could tell you I experienced the exact same thing on the BEC exam when I took it back in May! I knew the formula backwards and forwards and I calculated it like 5 times and got the same answer each time. But that answer was not one of the choices. I seriously think the AICPA does that to make you waste time trying to figure it out and to kill your confidence. I was able to find my post from May when I was b#*$(ing about it…

    My REG exam had an MCQ where the main term in the question was not spelled correctly. Spelling isn't even one of my strengths and it stood out.

    REG: 86
    AUD: 92
    FAR: 84
    BEC: 87

    On the reg exam, i noticed that there was reference to an entity that is no longer in existence. While I sort of got excited about it, I just had to put out both of my hands in a scale. In one hand was the total amount of stuff that I know w/r/t CPA exam material and the other hand was filled with stuff that the AICPA folks know about CPA exam material. One hand was weighed down – and it wasn't the hand filled with the stuff that I know – fer sure!

    I took BEC exam a couple of weeks ago and I am sure there was a problem about calculating. I knew how to work this problem but the correct answer was not there!

    I was wondering if anyone had experienced this problem because I thought it was just my me.

    I had it happen to me also on a BEC question. The correct number was not there from the calculaton. Odd thing to is I had the same formula on at least 2 other questions on the same test, but the correct answer was ther those times.

    FAR - 10/3/12 - 86
    BEC - 11/27/12 - 70 1/14/13 - 81
    AUD - 4/4/13 - 87
    REG - 7/8/13 - 80
