NINJA CPA Review
Keona is a NINJA CPA blogger. I took AUD for the third time this weekend. I really need a win. After reaching the half way mark in 6 months, I haven’t been able to pass that mark. I came close but no cigar with AUD. I humbled myself and watched lectures this time around. The lectures worked wonders for me. I honestly don’t know how I got close to passing the last two times without fully understanding some keys points in AUD (sampling, assertions, and transaction cycles). I was also worried about the Sims so I practiced over 100 simulations. I feel like the CPA gods were on my side because my Sims weren’t too difficult or maybe I was well prepared. I will take some time off and work on shredding some of these CPA pounds before I got into REG.
