Did it in 30 days while working full time. Studied about 2-3 hours each weeknight. Maybe a little Saturday morning. And then a couple hours Sunday night.

Yes I used Becker. Didn’t watch lectures as I liked reading on my own which helped speed things up. Could go quicker through topics I had a good understanding of and slowed down for things I didn’t know. Always did all MC at the end of each section and at least looked at each sim to get an idea of what kind of sims there would be. Focused first 2 weeks on getting through all modules and last 2 weeks on hitting personalized review

Hello!

I’m getting ready to start studying for the CPA exam. Wondering if anyone can give me insight on the difference between the Becker packages. My job is willing to pay a portion, which makes the lesser option look more appealing. However, does anyone know of the study material is dramatically different?

Hey everyone! I need to pass FAR by end of April before I lose audit. It’s my last exam!! Did anyone use i75 or Ninja as their main review course for FAR? I’ve been going through Becker and I’m having a hard time grasping the information. I’m trying to take the exam in 5 weeks so that I leave myself enough time for a retake if I need to. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

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!
