BEC has the highest passing rate of the
4 sections. Therefore if you have been able to handle the
other three sections you should have a better shot, but
of course there is no guarantee.


A lot of external auditor junior staff have only a few
months to prepare for one or more sections - it's not
impossible, it's all about your attitude.


to knock down the becker material, you're talking
about 5 lectures (3 days each = 15 days including
homework) plus sims and final exams / reviews (5 days),
plus re-reviews of homework questions missed, and pop
quizzes, etc.


I think that one important point to be made is that
NASB seems to be designing exams around the obvious
Becker material. I found this with REG the first time
(fail) and found that studying REG with Gleim was a lot
more comprehensive although still a ton of info. My plan
is to see if I can pass BEC with Becker the first time
(taking it in Nov although I wanted to do it in Oct) and
then if I need to re-take, do it again with Gleim in
Jan/Feb. It's luck of the draw on your written, but the
good thing is it counts for less. I would personally take
REG or FAR 1st/2nd, then AUD, and save BEC as the last
exam (declining order of difficulty to pass).



I am so happy to hear that BEC has the highest passing
rates. BTW, where do you get this info? I passed Audit
(81).

I am taking FAR this friday..it will be the 3rd
time..Using wiley test bank this time...And I am taking
BEC on Aug 31. so its just about a month to study for
BEC for the very 1st time.

I am more motivated now since you told me the high
passing rates. haha..

You passed FAR. What do you use? Any adivce?
