NINJA CPA Review

Alex is a NINJA CPA blogger. First of all congratulations to everyone that found out they passed a section of the CPA Exam and also a keep your chin up for those who found out they didn’t. This exam is a marathon not a sprint and none of us is defined by 1 test result good or bad. I promised myself when I started this journey that I was going to be honest with myself and others, so here I am with all my excuses for why I haven’t studied. I do want to talk about something a little more serious that doesn’t affect everyone or maybe even most people but if there’s just one other person who does maybe it’ll help them. Does the CPA cause depression? No, but that didn’t stop me from googling CPA and depression and finding approximately 1.8 million results. I know people say you

Oren writes in: I took auditing in May and I don't think I did well. My score with regulation is expiring on July 21st. I just found out that I will not receive the auditing score until August 16th. If I do not pass I won't be able to take auditing again before regulation expires. Will they extend my regulation score? Thank you for your insight. The AICPA has said that in situations where scores will expire and people are messed up due to this extended school release window – with Q2 exams, the scores aren't released until August – it's on a state-by-state basis. The AICPA administers the exam but your actual eligibility to sit for the exam and your certificate and licensure eligibility is determined by your state. It's up to each individual State Board of Accountancy to decide. What I would do is call up your State

Nellie says: Is the NINJA Audio the same as the NINJA Notes? I'm taking auditing in six days. I have the notes but I'm deciding whether or not to purchase the audio. Is it the same as the notes but spoken out loud? Conceptually the notes and the audio are pretty much the same. The same concepts, however they are two completely different performances, if you will. So the NINJA Audio is not the NINJA Notes just read out loud. Each NINJA audio script took me at least a month to write out. And I expand on a lot of the topics. And so the notes are used for like a cram and the audio is best used for… It allows you to study when you couldn't otherwise get in the time. So when you're at the gym, if you're at the gym for an hour, you can literally study

CPA Exam Pass Rates

The AICPA has released the Q2 2017 CPA Exam Pass Rates. Additional insights from the AICPA: Candidates’ reactions to the recent changes to the Exam were quite positive with no significant operational issues to report. The percentage of candidates entering the pipeline and passing all 4 sections [annually] is the best indicator of candidate and Exam performance. The '17Q2 Exam is a new exam with a new passing standard. Comparisons to past years and past quarters are of limited value due to the changes in the Exam. We do not know if '17Q2 candidate performance is representative of future performance. Candidates’ performance on the Exam may improve over time as candidates become more familiar with the structure and content of a new exam. The Board of Examiners regularly monitors pass rates. Some thoughts… After tracking CPA Exam Score Releases and Pass Rates since 2009, I've seen a lot of changes

NINJA CPA Review

Alex is a NINJA CPA blogger. First as an adopted Texan I must say please keep my state and all areas affected by Harvey in your thoughts and prayers. The recovery is going to be long from but I know we’ll get there together. I PASSED AUDIT!!!! It was the biggest sigh of relief seeing that magical 76. I know it’s not a 90 or 95 but hey we’re just trying to pass and passing is a 75 so if I get a 76 on all parts I will be the happiest CPA you have ever seen. Now if you ask any CPA candidate I’m sure we will tell you that things didn’t always go according to plan but we also had habits we maintained that helped as pass. I’d like to discuss the habits that I used in Audit that I’ll be bringing with me to FAR as well
