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!

NINJA CPA Review

Stacey is a NINJA CPA blogger. Hey NINJAs! My name is Stacey from South Dakota, trying to figure out this stage in life of studying for the CPA exam. I have been out of college and married for 4 years and, now that my husband has his Masters, I am focusing on my CPA. Most of our marriage we have had part time jobs in addition to our full time jobs, so I am officially calling studying for my CPA my part time job. We also have a couple of rental properties where I am involved with the financials and major decisions. I happened to take enough credit hours in my four years of college (with a few summers of catching up) to have started working on my CPA right out of college, but I made plenty of excuses. I started getting serious about the idea of taking the exams

NINJA CPA Review

John is a NINJA CPA blogger. As I begin to study for my first exam I thought to myself, “Why am I doing this?” Some of my thoughts have been: to make more money have a retirement account travel pay off my student loans But that was only the beginning. Then I started thinking what is really going to motivate me to put in the study hours over and above what I’m already doing to work on my MACC program. At this time my real motivation is that I want to be part of something bigger than myself. Seven years ago I went back to school because of the effect the financial crisis had on me. It was my goal then to become a more informed citizen so I could understand how the crisis happened and to become more prepared the next time an event like the financial crisis happens.
