    Hello y’all. This is going to be longggg.
    Soooo, I took the BEC exam today, 9/28/2020. Let me tell you something, that exam was mind-blowing hard.
    I used Gleim for my CPA review, studied for 2 months,and I made a 77 in my mock exam, please know that I graded myself well in the written communication section.
    I revised the whole book and I felt okay for the exam.
    I got to the exam center on time, check and sign-in was pretty okay.
    Testlet 1 – Hot tears came to my eyes, I almost raised my hands to confirm if this was the real CPA BEC exam . I had like 11 questions flagged in this testlet. I told myself, surely it cannot get worse. Boy, was I wrong…
    Testlet 2 – Questions were more conceptual and I really had no idea what was going on. I had almost all questions flagged. I was like even if somw are pre-test questions, it will not be the whole 31 questions right. These questions were from hell, guys.
    Testlet 3- I said since the MCQ were nearly impossible, I will get easier simulations, right. WRONG!!!!! So wrong… No correlations at all for this exam. The first 2 Sims were crazy hard, so much scrolling, lots of exhibits and I was still trying to save time for the Written parts. I have never seen simulations like these ones. Who sets these questions, who is out to get meeeee???
    I took my break and came back ready for the last two testlets.
    Testlet 4 – I think they decided to go easy on me for this Testlet. I was able to get through the simulations on time with an hour and 15 minutes left for the Written communication.
    Testlet 5 – Written Communication, 3 serious questions. At this point, I was like girl, do your best. Follow the guidelines. You have studied and tried for the exam.
    I finished with thirty seconds on the timer. Guess we will see what October 9 brings. I am hopeful to God to pass this exam because studying for this exam was really difficult for me.

    Motivation and advice – To anyone taking the CPA exam, I am so so proud of you. You are a rock-star and a winner. God is on your side.
    For studying- Keep pushing, please stay determined, do not give up.
    This is our year.

    This is your journey, whether it takes 4 months, one year, or longer. You can do it!!!

    @teegirl and @water What were the topics that were tested? It seems as if both of you thought it was material that you've never seen/practiced a lot for. Can you please give an overview of what these hard topics that were tested?

    @RY it's not so much what is tested but how it is tested. Since BEC has relatively few chapters, they are all important. The key is knowing how to approach all problems. Some are memory/concept based but many are calculation based. My advice is work through a lot of MCQ in your review course, practicing every type of calculation.

    REG - 91 (May 18 2020)

    FAR - 89 (Aug 24 2020)

    BEC - 95 (Sept 28 2020)

    AUD - 90 (Nov 12 2020)
