FAR-5 Class and the Vigil for BEC Scores

35 days remaining (aka 29 days)
Mood - Good
Study Time – 4.0 hours (328.0 total - FAR: 46.0 - BEC: 74.5 - REG: 118.0 - AUD: 89.5)
Scores:  AUD-94, REG-97, BEC-??

FAR-5 lecture was tonight.  It went better than my reading on my own went for it.  I bet the questions challenge me tomorrow though.  I am not expecting to do as well as I did on the FAR-4 questions, but should do better than I did on last week's class' questions.  The lecture tonight was long and they skipped most of the examples in the material they covered in the last half hour.  

I have not made the time to go and do a progress test yet for FAR.  I can only imagine how much of FAR-1 I've forgotten.  FAR-2 & FAR-3 I was already scoring bad on and will have to re-watch those lectures probably, so they don't worry me as much.  I may just have to get through all the lectures and then do a more in-depth review than I've had to do for the other sections.

BEC scores were released to NASBA and the state boards late this afternoon.  Hopefully Texas will process them tomorrow and I'll have a score bright and early Friday morning.  Of course that won't stop me from obsessively checking 3 times tomorrow even though I know they only update the one time around 3am in Texas.

Good luck to all those going crazy waiting for score releases over the next several days through next week.  May your sleep be restful and your scores 75 or higher!

I was actually a bit surprised.  I hadn't gotten an email or question in comments in a week.  I typically answer any questions left in the comments in the comments section (ie yesterday's comment question).  I can usually give better answers in email (link on right navigation area of blog) depending on the question.


  1. I have a question about the release of scores. When the AICPA releases them do they go to NASBA or to the Texas State board? OR do they go to NASBA and then they release it to the TX State Board.. I am slightly confused and you seem to know a lot more! :)

  2. Most states let NASBA handle their score releases. Texas is one of the states that does not. The AICPA releases the scores to NASBA and the state boards at the same time for release to us. If you are in Texas it goes AICPA--->Texas State Board--->Us. If you are in a NASBA state (not you or I) it goes AICPA--->NASBA--->students. California seems to be the best out of the states that release their own scores. Texas doesn't seem to be bad, but usually a day after NASBA. My thought is if they can't beat NASBA then they should just let NASBA do it. Apparently there is a state out there that does their own releases and uses snail mail to do it....ugh!
