NINJA CPA Review

John is a NINJA CPA blogger. Hello NINJAs, As I head into the last four weeks before taking my BEC exam, I’ve really started to hit my NINJA MCQs hard. I’m applying a concept I learned as an analyst and that is the Agile concept. My interpretation is to go through a process of trying new ideas and if one doesn’t work you keep iterating till you find one that does. I have seen this concept mentioned here on Another71 and I’m putting it to the test. What made me want to try this process is concept of, “Fail often and fail fast.” This is how I begin analyzing new data sets at work. I first heard this quote from a data analyst seminar. One of the core mission statements in the development of their software product is to give people the ability to iterate quickly which means fail often and

NINJA CPA Review

Keona is a NINJA CPA blogger. I took REG this weekend. It is the last part I need to pass before being completely done with the CPA exam. I have so many mixed feelings. Of course, I’m happy there is a possibility that I will not have to study for this monster of a test again. I also feel like the burden will not be completely off my shoulder until I see the passing score flash on my computer screen. I honestly don’t know how the test went but I know I gave my all. Now I plan on enjoying my free time.

NINJA CPA Review

Introducing Kristen! Hello fellow NINJAs! I wish I could say this was my first time with Another71, and that I was a new NINJA, but it is not the case. Like some of you, this is not my first rodeo, but I am back to take the bull by the horns! A few years ago I started studying for my exams, and my very first day I thought, “THERE IS NO WAY I WILL EVER LEARN ALL OF THIS!” And I worked at it, hard. I started with AUD as I had no experience or classes in that area and, after my first exam, I got a….74. Ouch. Back to the books, study study study, and I got a……74. Tears. Third time was a charm; I did well and passed with a high 80’s score. Next came REG, which I had touched at various points, and I passed that. That

NINJA CPA Review

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. It’s been a crazy few weeks. Last week I was copying my and this week I’ll do that again and start with MCQs. I know a lot of people say go straight for the MCQs, but that’s what I did last time and it didn’t work. I’m trying to get back into REG and get my mind wrapped around everything before I start the MCQs. I’ve been joined by kids the past week in studying because we’ve had thunderstorms just about every night. It’s made for difficult studying, but at least I was still studying. My husband says I need to get the test over with so we can move on with our lives. Hmm… that’d be great if I could get some more studying time! It’s hard on our families because they don’t completely understand what we’re going through with these exams and
