CPA Exam Blogger Philip: After The BEC Exam

Philip is a resident of the great state of New York, but has inspired and motivated fellow Roger students through online forums and social media platforms across the globe. Philip has already passed FAR and AUD, and is now gearing up for BEC.

Well hello to all!!!  I survived my BEC exam.  I want to share with you why Roger is right about leaving for your exam location extra early is a great idea.  So I decided to leave an hour early for my exam.  I was a few blocks from the testing site when I was forced to follow a detour because the bridge was closed. 

DON’T WORRY FOLLOW THE DETOUR SIGNS.  Yeah right.  I followed the detour signs for 30 minutes until they brought me right back to the starting point of the detour.  Alice, my GPS, wouldn’t connect to the satellites.  It was a recipe for disaster.  I was in downtown Syracuse, lost and no real way to get to my test site.

Thankfully, I calmed down, found alternate directions and made my way to the testing site.  But a morning like that would cause anyone to miss their exam if there wasn’t ample time left between the arrival and the start of your exam.  Needless to say, I was super unnerved prior to my exam.  I took a few deep breaths, signed in and off I went to answer 72 wondrous multiple choice questions and three epic simulations.  Good times.

The exam seemed to get a little bit more difficult with each testlet, or I got dumber, which after hours of studying and countless multiple choice questions, who knows which one is correct.  I do know that the exam was just what I thought it would be tricky.  I stayed confident until the second question and then lost all hope (just kidding).  Seriously, take Rogers advice and arrive early to your exam location.

Study and you will pass!
