Ask Jeff

Audrey – I have to pass BEC before FAR expires on 7/31/16. I made a 71 on my last attempt. BEC is my beast. Do you recommend focusing on what I know or do I try to learn what I don’t know????? I have less than 7 days to figure this out.

Christina F 750x200
NINJA CPA Review

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. Howdy, NINJAs! So I have picked up my notes and have read through them twice. Now I’m going to be adding in and start re-writing these notes. I feel that I’ve actually been grasping more since reading the notes than I did reading the entire book last time. I have high hopes this time around! With summer here, it’s hard to stay focused with all of the trips to the beach and pool my husband has planned for the kids, but I’ve made strict guidelines that I get at least 4 hours on our non-pool day to study so that I am not falling behind. I’ve been using my lunch break and about an hour, usually more, in the evenings to read and study. So far that seems to be working. It’s going much better than trying to force in 3 hours in the

Kristen Option 2
NINJA CPA Review

Kristen is a NINJA CPA blogger. After the disappointment with FAR, I decided to re-motivate myself by focusing on AUD. I think that AUD and BEC will be the sections that play to my strengths – not that I am looking forward to any section of this exam. Before bed, I like to do a little light reading to clear my head and avoid screen time. If I stare at my phone it is a downhill spiral of depressing current events, Facebook browsing and unnecessary shopping, which keeps me awake much longer than reading. The whole point of this tangent is that I am working to develop good habits! Honestly, studying is very low on my list of items to do during the day. Since with studying there is no one to let down but myself, other deadlines seem more pressing. Once work slows down, I hope I will be

NINJA CPA Review

Keona is a NINJA CPA blogger. We are officially into the summer season and I’m back into study mode. I’m focusing big time on the taxation part of REG. I do remember some of the material from my first take at REG. I’m using the same method I used for my last AUDIT pass. I’m excited this is my last part of the CPA exam and I’m giving my all to pass this test this time. Sometimes I dream of all the things I could be doing while I’m at Starbucks studying after work, especially with the extended sunlight. I remember how far I have come from last year this time when I only had one part passed and I keep on pushing.

NINJA CPA Review

Joshua is a NINJA CPA blogger. I have been coming to the Another 71 site for the better part of the 2 years since I started my CPA journey. I read about the NINJA method and how it supposedly made a difference, especially the re-writing of notes, and led to improved scores. I’ll admit, I’ve always been a little skeptical of Jeff’s methods. I saw the re-writing of notes as tedious and as an exercise that takes away from precious MCQ time as you approach an exam. Today, I am happy to say I have to eat every single one of those words. I originally took Audit in August and October, both times not dedicating enough time or proper study techniques, thinking that I could probably get by and scrape out a 75. I promptly got my butt handed to me with both exams. This attempt, I decided to go

Kristen Option 2
NINJA CPA Review

Kristen is a NINJA CPA blogger. I was recently talking to a coworker, and shared that, although I am not far along in my journey towards sitting for the exam, I am frustrated. I think that so often when you see a failing result you feel like you are in it alone. A lot of my colleagues, friends and acquaintances already have the CPA designation — but I didn’t know some of them through their journey to obtain it. I encourage all of the NINJAs out there to start the discussion with someone who has the designation. There is a struggle for everyone; it just may come in different forms. One coworker shared that she sat for each section of the exam multiple times before passing. I had a very similar conversation with my mentor; she said she sat for each of the sections multiple times, receiving near-passing grades each
