could anyone tell me how extensive was he COSO part tested for BEC ?
Cleared BEC with 79. 3 down in 2 windows. Scheduled Audit in February 2012.
Well I took FAR and AUD this week! I'm scheduled for BEC and REG in January and February. I've heard the REG is rough and BEC written part can make or break you. Any advice or tips in my studying for BEC?
You know I can't recall that much, I know it was only a month ago, but REG blocked most stuff out. What I do recall is that there was about 3-4 MCQ's that come right out of REG material, I'm not sure if those are practice or not (sadly no breakdown of performance on passing). I don't recall seeing much in the way of IT on the test, or at least a lot less than I was warned about, but everyone's test is different.
For tips I would say: at least do some practice essays, those can make or break your score. Given I got a 77, I probably scored high on the essay and that's probably the only reason I passed. As I said, I can't see the breakdown of performance, but I felt pretty good about the essay section.
Otherwise I'd say do a lot of MCQ's (Wiley test bank is great for that - plus easy place to practice essays) and stay calm. I was much calmer during BEC then I was during AUD and FAR and I think the fact I failed those two speaks volumes on to the level of nervousness and rushing. Hopefully that made sense. If I can think of anything else I'll post it! :) Good luck to everyone and hopefully you all get to join in on the I passed a section of the CPA exam dance.
I need Tips
What was the exam like Andrea? Any tips?
Just b/c I'm so excited: I passed BEC! Got my score today, wasn't going to look b/c REG on Wed and that would have been a total confidence killer, but something said I should and thankfully I did! It taste like victory!
Hope everyone gets similar news! :)
I'm taking it on Monday morning. My LAST section!!
@ Lynn that's great.
