    I only have time to take 1 of the Becker simulated exams before Saturday's test, anyone know which one is best to take? Or should I take the AICPA practice exam instead?

    Definitely do the AICPA sample exam, it's only maybe 10 MCQs and 5 or 6 SIMs.
    Those sample questions are far more valuable in helping you see what you might expect, and you might even see some similar questions on your actual exam.
    Cannot recommend the AICPA sample enough.
    Sorry, can't advise on the Becker mocks. You got an 80 on FAR so you understand timing already. Mock is probably a waste of time and serves you no real purpose. Hammer those MCQs instead.

    @Recked thanks! I thought the AICPA sample exam was an entire simulated test. Will definitely take that.

    I second the AICPA sample test. I got BEC next monday and I'm feeling nervous about it but I plan to do sample exam sims sunday. It saved me for FAR and I saw a near identical sim on audit.

    I wouldn't even waste time taking the Becker mock exams. The scores reported by people on this site differ so dramatically from their actual exam scores that it cannot be used as a tool to help you gauge where you are at.

    The AICPA sample test for BEC is a complete joke – nothing like the sims i got for the actual BEC exam. The AICPA needs to update the Sims on the BEC sample test, or maybe I just got the short end of the stick and got the most difficult BEC sims. I still passed with a good score, but man those sims were hard!!

    My biggest piece of advice for the BEC exam – make sure to leave enough time for the WC. The WC section is easy points, so I would allocate at least 1 hour to those. Even if you score lower in the sims, the easy points you can get in the WC section will make up for the loss of points in the sims.
