If I pass, it'll be a miracle

May 23rd, 2010 at 01:39 pm

Ugh! Talk about a blow to my self-confidence.

If I pass, I think it will be a miracle. My first testlet was okay, I can calculate basis and deductions just fine.

But the second testlet was more business law and although many will think they know business law (Like I thought I did)... the examiners throw odd questions in there to trick you.

I actually found a few that I knew were thrown in as "distractors" for anyone not reading everything WORD FOR WORD would misunderstand the question & get it wrong.

The communication tabs that I had to write were okay. I knew them, in fact I think one of them was a "test" for BEC's business law simulation that they are going to implement in 2011.

But I did not know the simulation tabs. I struggled on those to the point I finally just had to tell myself "Look, you obviously don't know this as well as you thought... hopefully you at least got SOME of it right."

So we'll see... but I'm not counting on passing. I left FAR and AUD feeling like I did "okay"... and I passed FAR (waiting on AUD).... REG? OMG... talk about a blow to your self-confidence.

So, on to studying for BEC. Hopefully I passed AUD so I'll only need to take REG again. Just got to keep going.

    I was quite sure I failed the law one, but got my best score of the bunch (90-something percent). Anyway, the test has changed much, but hope it's still the same. I wouldn't sweat it until you get the results!

    I agree...just wait until you get the results. You may be surprised!!

    Don't sweat it...it's done and I'm sure you did fine. There's nothing you can do at this point, so just relax. If nothing else, you have an idea for what to expect next time...and that's worth something.

    I was discussing taking my final CMA exam with my husband today...saying that I'm not sure if I'll be ready to take it in the current test window that closes on 6/30. He reminded me that I just need to pass it...I don't need to ace it. He mentioned an old joke "what do the call the guy that graduated last from med school?...Doctor".

    LOL Minnie, thanks for that laugh.. I needed it. And you're right, we just need to PASS... not ace it. Couple people say if you get over a 75 - you over-studied. Wink
