    Yes, the instructor styles are different. Peter will grow on you. The ECON section is well – just as exciting as econ was in college. No way to make that stuff fun – in my opinion. It is a good thing it is only tested about 8-10% on the exam.

    The material is diverse – just keep doing practice tests over previous chapters, keep examples of the “key” calculations and practice them and you will do fine. Look at the test breakout and focus on where the major points are (Chapters 3, 4 & 5) Chaper 1 & 2 you need to go over but they are not as heavily tested.

    Also, the Becker material will tell you some of the more complex examples come from the CMA exam and are more difficult than what you will see on the exam. They are good to drive home the concepts.

    Good luck!

    Yaeger is the way to go for BEC! I even had 1 weird question on the BEC exam that only Cindy covered.

    You are correct, Becker's weakest subject is BEC. (I used Becker and Yaeger for all four exams.)

    i agree with you 75 CPA. Yaeger is definitely the way to go for BEC…i just took it for the third time on Monday and actually just ordered Yaeger homestudy for FAR as well (even though I already paid for Becker 2010 FAR material!) Oh well, I need to go with what works and Yaeger does a far better job of actually explaining concepts so you can apply those to the exam. That is the way I felt during my BEC exam – I actually knew what to do on most of the calculation questions! I don't wanna chance it for FAR. I am looking forward to Cindy again lol

    I think the thing with Becker for BEC is that the multiple choice questions are literally ridiculous. The exam questions are NO where near as hard as the Becker ones…so I feel it wasted my time. I was so stressed trying to understand how they arrived at some convoluted answer that I think it took away from what the main concept was. It honestly confused me!

    We are taking FAR the same day! What state are you testing in? I am in Mass. I am also waiting on my BEC score (3rd time). I am waiting on my Yaeger material to get here..just ordered it today. It will be a LONG 5.5 weeks but hopefully it is my last section. I am glad I have all you guys to share this experience with me. It makes it way more bearable!
