To discuss: What is the harm in “burning a bridge” with someone / organizations that clearly don’t respect you or care about you? What are you afraid of by speaking honestly?

Hello everyone,
I’m supporting a mom who had a 2 month supply of breast milk in her freezer but the freezer stopped working at some point on Thursday after 5pm. I believe she shouldn’t re-freeze the milk at this point. She said the milk is cool but not frozen anymore. Do you have any suggestions please? Can she re-freeze it?

REG - Becker. Where do they first introduce the MYLEGS mnemonic in the lecture videos? I can’t remember or find it

Becker expired. What to do? Cant extend it since i dont have an nts and dont want to pay for one yet but need to study.

Has anyone passed FAR with Ninja only?


I got a 72 on AUD after just getting a 74 on FAR. FML & yes that was my second time taking those exams. I got a 55 on AUD and a 39 on FAR the first time I took them courtesy of a live review course 🙄


Does anyone know if prometric will open up more time slots? Currently in NYC and no time slots available until September... my credit expires in September 🤦🏻‍♀️


What’s the most efficient way to study for FAR? I have Becker and I’m not able to remember the first chapters I learned because there is so much information. To go through all of the modules with the lecture videos, simulations, and MCQs takes forever.


Anyone have study tips for BEC? I just finished the lectures and am almost 2/3rd of the way thru the MCQs (my goal is to be finished with MCQs by 24th). Next should I tackle SIMS? Thoughts on what else I should focus on? Or what else I should go over?


When I was taking the CPA there's a section for every testing window for each test, and people would share their notes and just share their experience with the test.

Am using Becker and seem to be memorizing the MCQ’s. For those who’ve taken BEC, how close are the exam questions to Becker’s practice test MCQ’s?


Just got a general cpa email. It says that we can fill out an extension form for our NTS if it falls outside of April 1-June 30. It then goes on to say that state boards may not even accept; contd.

Taking new Reg next week. Is 50 minutes per MCQ testlet good? That will leave me 2 hrs 20 minutes to do Sims. With this new format I see a lot of people saying they didn't have enough time for Sims and I really want to avoid that, especially now that you have no way to tell how difficult the Sims will be as they're in 3 testlets.

How is the BEC being graded? Is structure/grammar more important than content? Is it 50/50? Also, is it graded by a computer?

Apologies if questions sound ignorant lol. I've taken CPA abroad and it didnt have a written communications portion to it so this is all new to me. My concern is not knowing how to write, but what to write if i forget parts of the expected answer.

Thanks for any insight!


How many "practice" questions are on FAR and what's the least amount of Becker that you did and still passed?

Anyone testing in Houston? This is insane. My exam scheduled for the end of May was cancelled and I was able to reschedule for July. Really hoping that my rescheduled date doesn’t also get cancelled.


FAR, what a pain..that’s all


How long will it take me to study for BEC and pass if I study full time 8 hours a day? A rough estimate based on people’s experiences

I am taking a 7 week sabbatical from work with a goal to complete 2 sections (REG & BEC). Do you think this is possible?


Just wanted to say that working and studying is no joke. I wish my professors would have warned me then I would have delayed my start date. Just venting....


Has anyone not taking notes or highlighted along while watching the Becker lectures and successfully passed?


When you realize you need your CPA to request for an international exchange/opportunity with your Big4 office, but you still need to pass all parts first 🥲
