    And ****, the Becker mcqs are way more difficult than I anticipated. I hope my study experience is similar to BEC, where the actual exam questions are way easier than the Becker questions.

    I also felt so (that the exam was way easier) than Becker's mcq back in 2017.. But who knows now with all the changes

    I thought the mcqs on the exam were pretty straight forward. The SIMS while not technically difficult were hideously detailed, tedious problems. I think the SIMS are where I lost most of my points.

    @LIFO hoping my BEC exam is easier than Becker's too next monday. I have been scoring in the 60's for some mcq sections during review phase. I honestly think some of BEC ch.2-4 is worst than anything I saw in FAR. Becker can be so over the top it's frustrating to even wanna sit down and do their MCQs haha. When I passed FAR with a 76, the MCQs were definitely more straight forward than Becker's but i got plenty of computations on topics that I was not great with. I thought I failed because of them. Regarding SIMs, at least from my own experience I highly recommend looking at the AICPA sample exam. 3 of my Sims were near identical to the Sample exam sims no doubt another reason why I squeezed by with a pass.

    I allotted six weeks to do FAR with Becker (full-time) and I got so behind trying to do their MCQs that I actually went ahead and did all the lectures and all the skills practice and then went back and did the MCQs. This way I could cover all the material so I could take the mock exams. I was doing MCQs the night before the exam in Unit 10. They are hard. But the exam is pretty hard too. I got 66, 69 and 77 on the mock exams but scored an 84 on the real thing.

    I've found an anomaly in the Space-Time Continuum. NASBA and the AICPA are in the 19th century. They use slide rules to score the exam, and then they send the scores by Pony Express to the State Boards. That's why it takes so long for them to do a score release.
