    Good planning!. I tried to plan intelligently as well, but I made a rookie mistake (first baby). Our baby was due on 8/29 so I scheduled BEC for 8/13 thinking that I could get it done and then have a few weeks to enjoy/focus on the baby's birth. However, my wife's water broke on 8/12 while I was engaged in my final review of notes, flashcards, etc. Oops.

    I am not going to throw anyone under the bus, but the state were I am sitting for the exam was so rude and uncooperative when I tried to explain the situation. I ended up just rescheduling and paying to take it again in this window. So, anyone in a similar situation be aware of this.

    Get luck with your scores, and more imporatantly with your new baby!

    My wife and I are expecting our first child on November 25th and I am scheduled to take BEC (hopefully my last exam) on November 14th. After hearing SIMSLAYER's story I really regret scheduling my exam so close to my wife's due date. Hopefully my state will be more accommodating in case my wife goes into labor beforehand. The thought of moving my test date up has crossed my mind, but I haven't even really started studying for BEC. I can't imagine that passing BEC with less then 4 weeks of studying while working full time is feasible. My biggest motivation is getting this exam behind me before my daughter arrives.

    @jcw1503

    Is this your first? Is it a boy or girl? Any tips for studying BEC?

    FAR - 90
    AUD - 82

    It is our first and it is a boy…..I would absolutely get Ninja Notes if you haven't already….I would make some Note Cards and study like crazy…I would make some note cards just for formulas also..Study the difficult formulas and the simple ones….Make sure you know how to perform the simplier ones and not just assume…I assumed…I knew the formula but only thought I knew the details of the formulas and then on test day my answers were not any of the choices…So know the details…Also, on calculations I would perform the calculation and not even look at the answers….If your calculation is a choice, pick that one and move on…Don't look at the other ones because you will end up overthinking it and spending more time on it then you should and probably change your answer and get it wrong…Been there and done that too many times….That is my harerst part about MCQs…..On simulations, if you have a topic that you have no clue on…make up something that meets the requirement terms and keywords….Write it like the crap is fact….lol
