Didn’t pass BEC and I think Its time I move onto another section and then come back to it. I’m gonna start FAR. Hopefully I’ll pass this one before the quarter is up

I failed AUD and BEC twice prior, moved to FAR and passed on first try. Then went back to AUD and BEC and passed those in the same window as FAR. Questions may look familiar and you may need a break. I say take a shot at FAR


Thanks ❗️ I’m shooting for Nov 15.
Back on the grind 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾
