NINJA CPA Review

Joshua is a NINJA CPA blogger. Well, it’s official, I have been studying and taking the CPA Exam for a year this month; queue the sad trombone. When I originally started scheduling exams, I figured that this would be a 6 months tops kind of deal. Little did I know what I was in for with this beast of an exam. Life is full of fun surprises though, and I am learning to roll with the punches. I spent the week after my failing REG score trying to re-evaluate what I am doing wrong and what I need to change to get over this slump I am in. With 2 exams down and 2 to go, I need to find a second wind quickly as now the threat of losing a credit is beginning to become a legitimate concern. I am currently in the midst of Audit 3.0, and I

NINJA CPA Review

Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. NINJAs – Four days and long nights of studying to go on my way to hopefully procuring the glorious and ever sought after 75 on BEC! I am currently trending 72 percent with and hoping to increase to 80ish by Friday. My test is at 2:30 PM on Saturday…. I always struggle to decide if I should be studying in the morning or just pace anxiously around the house, plant some grass or actually cram. I have been told to keep my brain fresh and alert. I think I will be scheduling morning tests from here on out. At least when I am done with my afternoon exam, it is a perfect time to enjoy adult beverages. Currently, I seem to be struggling with the nice weather but even more, I am struggling with financial management concepts and trying to remember the IT terminology.

NINJA CPA Review

Joshua is a NINJA CPA blogger. Trying to study for one exam while waiting for the score drop of another is excruciating. I feel as though I can never truly invest in studying knowing I may have to re-study all of the material I just dumped out of my head the second I left the Prometric center. Despite this lingering anxiety over REG score release, I have to prepare for what I am hoping is my final battle with Audit and the CPA Exam as a whole. REG was even tougher than I imagined, and I think 50/50 at passing is a bit optimistic. I am hoping maybe my thought process has taken a detour to crazy town while thinking about the exam, and that the questions weren’t as bad as I remember. Getting back to Audit after a 6-month hiatus is better than I had hoped it would be.

NINJA CPA Review

Keona is a NINJA CPA blogger. The third time was the charm. I passed AUD! My score came two days after my birthday and that was a perfect gift. When I left the test I felt I did enough to pass but of course there is a notion that if you feel good after your test you failed. So I spent the last three weeks worrying about my score, even though once you hit the submit button there is nothing you can do but wait. My score was actually my trending score 85. Thanks Jeff! I think watching lectures and grasping the AUD concepts helped me pass this time. I’m excited to be moving on REG and will use the same studying methods I used for AUD. Three down, one to go!
