NINJA CPA Review
Kristen is a NINJA CPA blogger. As I blankly stare at my computer screen, mulling over whether I am going to bed or going to study, I try to rile myself up by remembering why I want my CPA. I mentally check the list, and dig deep to find the line item that will ignite the fire within… Job security: I love my job, and although I feel secure, having my CPA will help both me and my firm. Flexibility: Earning my CPA will allow me additional flexibility to find another job, should my family relocate– and not necessarily as an auditor. Respect: Having a CPA is a well-respected and recognized designation. Money: Who doesn’t want a bonus and potential for increased compensation?! These obvious reasons are certainly driving factors. But there are others that I don’t routinely share with others: Proving it to myself: Self-doubt sucks. Providing better opportunities
Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. Just a quick update in the midst of end of tax season (doesn’t affect me) and packing for China (does affect me) to share my joys and sorrows of studying for BEC. I also apologize for the depressing nature of this post. I will feel much better when I start making noticeable progress. BEC is moving slowly and I can see that I am really not motivated to study for this wonderful section. It has become a daily reminder to me on why I want the CPA designation. How will this benefit my career, family, etc? Trying to imagine the end goal of passing the exams is crucial for my motivation. Again, motivation is key for me to keep swimming in the journey of CPA exam passage. With this 10 day trip to China and my very slow progress, I may have to push
Keona is a NINJA CPA blogger. I reached my humbling period of the CPA exam process. I was able to pass the first two parts by just reading the book and completing the . For my third take at AUD, I decided to listen to AUD lectures. The lectures were boring but I was able to grasp concepts I didn’t fully understand before. I tried to get over on Audit Sampling and Transaction Cycles, nevertheless, I know now I will not pass without fully understanding those topics. I bowed down to the CPA Exam for this section and went full throttle. I also stopped talking about the exam so much to family and friends; I don’t need the added stress. I hope I can get passed AUD and move back to REG. Until then I will be a regular at my local Starbucks.
