Just took BEC… Don’t sit this window if you dont have to - Page 2

    I studied for 2 months and a half for BEC minimum 5 hours daily every single day. I went through the text book several times, watched every video, went through all the MCQ in wiley and I am actually pissed at how hard they made that test was.

    There was no mercy on the MCQs. It destroyed my time. That is my main complaint. I got 90s on the practice exams on wiley in this area btw. The sims were okay one of them I left blank no amount of studying would have made me get it right. The WC’s are what they are hopefully I got points for them.

    I passed FAR and AUD thus far and without a doubt BEC was the hardest exam of the three. Definitely failed.

    Bottom line is that I studied very very hard for ths exam and feel defeated by it.I feel like my time was waisted studying with wiley. Going to use ninja mcq and another test bank till next time bt wow that test was hard.

    In my opinion, you should. Do you need to? probably not. I dont remember anything I study, I am against remembering anything. I understand every formula thats in my head. It takes time and its very slow but youll get it. For example, the CAPM formula I can fully explain its components and I understand wh it is the way it is


    If your exam is like mine I would say dont even try to study COSO because the questions were all application none were logic and definitional


    Don’t have to memorize them all but be familiar with the ones regarding capital and the ones with turnover and days.

    FAR - 80 (4/1/2019)

    BEC - 82 (9/7/2019)

    AUD - 81 (11/23/2019)

    REG - 94 (3/9/2020)


    That's how I felt about FAR, but managed to pass by a couple points. Not a single question on leases, not a single question on bonds, it was totally weird.

    AUD - 77
    BEC - 90
    FAR - 76
    REG - 82

    Take a really deep breath. I felt the same exact way on BEC–during the break I felt so embarrassed that I wanted to walk out to my truck and leave! During the exams I tell myself, “Keep going. Dad fought in a war. This is just an exam. I can do this.” I ended up getting a great score on BEC. Meanwhile, on audit–which I thought for sure I got a 99 on!–I got a lower score than BEC. What on earth!

    So keep your chin up. It sounds like you studied hard, and I hope you are pleasantly surprised when you see your score! Remember that some questions are pretest questions (that don't count) and may falsely make you feel terrible. Hoping for the best for all of you.

    AUD - 89
    BEC - 91
    FAR - 79
    REG - 85

    Have some faith everyone. I took BEC in Q4 2019 and left feeling absolutely terrible. I got an 80 on AUD and a 94 on REG and I left BEC feeling WAYYYY worse than Audit. Then score release came and sat and stared at the score in disbelief. See score below. Have some faith that the time and effort you put into studying will pay off.

    AUD - 80
    BEC - 98
    FAR - 96
    REG - 94
    I believe luck is a concept invented by the weak to explain their failures.
