The Silent Killer Just Days Away: The BEC Exam

Well here I am, only days from my BEC exam.   I’m very nervous about this exam simply because I have heard it called the silent killer.  While everyone always says that BEC is the easiest of the exams, it’s still one of the four exams.  I was lucky with FAR and AUD because the material really built on itself, however due to the nature of BEC, the information is sporadic. 
I have never done so many MCQs.  This weekend alone I went thru almost 500 questions in one day.  Part of those 500 questions were questions I missed and missed and missed.  But Roger is right, it’s the repletion of going thru the questions 2-3 times that’s going to do help me spot the key words, become used to the verbiage the exam is going to use and go thru the mechanics of some of the harder calculations.

So what have I learned from Roger and team prior to an exam.  Simple – relax, study and be
confident.  When I failed the AUD exam, I remember the freak out session the day before and the day of the exam.  But the second time sitting for the test, I went in confident and passed.  I’m definitely not where I would like to be just days before the exam, however, I will remain confident.  I remember a
mentor once telling that a professional exam is nothing more than your chance to tell the testing.


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.
