NINJA CPA Review

John Thompson head shot
NINJA CPA Review

John is a NINJA CPA blogger. Hello fellow NINJAs. I want to introduce myself, my name is John Thompson. I graduated with my BS accounting degree last November. Soon after I applied to sit for my first CPA exam. After receiving my notice to schedule I signed up for my first exam for July 30th. During this whole process I have been a student of Jeff’s podcasts and CPA Exam survival guide. I’m using only NINJA because of its affordability and the many positive reviews online. As I look at the task ahead of me I think of the immortal words from the movie “Lord of the Rings Twin Towers” when King Theoden said “And so it begins” as the attack starts on Helm’s Deep. My challenges with beginning this journey are many and I’m sure are not unique compared to all of the stories I’ve read from other NINJA

NINJA CPA Review

Kristen is a NINJA CPA blogger. FAR FAR Away… or so I wish! I will be sitting for FAR next week and I can honestly say that there are not enough hours in the day. My current work load has taken every hour in my evenings that I would dedicate to studying and I don’t see that letting up prior to my exam. In the coming week I will be squeezing in as many as I can, referencing my notes in every spare moment I have, listening to NINJA Audio in the car (I’m sure my kids will LOVE that! I hope this will help to get me to where I need to be.) I have to get better at prioritizing my goals and ensuring I take the time to study.

NINJA CPA Review

Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. Nǐ hǎo! Good to come home to some warmer weather (thankfully no snow) and back to studying… Apparently, before I left for China, I scheduled my BEC exam for May 21st; thus leaving me 3 weeks to pound MCQs. In the last 3 days, I have already covered 20 percent in the and I am trending around 60 percent! I feel like I remember some information from the last time I took BEC… almost a year ago. Speaking of years (you can’t buy this paragraph transition), I have been on this journey for 2 years now. I have lost my REG credit and spent thousands of my wonderful dollars on testing fees, Prometric fees, study materials, coffee’s, adult beverages, etc. Where is my level of motivation? Well, my jetlagged self and my wife had a conversation last week about “Is it time to give-up?”

NINJA CPA Review

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. I write to you as I wait for my REG score. It’s painful waiting for scores. Luckily, I’ve been busy enough to not really think about it much. I’ve started studying for BEC and have a whole plan worked out. I’m aiming to take it May 28th because I’ll be at a work conference that week and without the kids around, it’s the perfect time to get review in. This is my second go at BEC. Hopefully I’ll pass this time. My aim is to watch the lectures, read the book in the first 2-2 ½ weeks and then focus on . I took notes off of Blitz when that was available (Thank you Jeff!!) so I’ll re-write those and my own notes as well. The last time I took BEC, I didn’t read the book; I just worked on MCQs. Obviously, that wasn’t
