Stacey is a NINJA CPA blogger. I have had a very difficult time balancing monthly family events with my studying while studying for the CPA Exam. It's been a challenge. I'm happy to say I finally had a successful trip away from home while still getting in my study sessions! I have been doing really well at home with my regular schedule of night and weekend study sessions, so I did not want to take a set back from a weekend away to visit family. I was very thankful my husband was willing and able to drive the twelve hours round trip so I could have streaming through my headphones while I was re-writing my notes. When my hands or ears got sore I was able to re-read my notes and go through flashcards. Every time I got in the car with family to drive somewhere over the weekend, I
Introducing Aida! Hello! I started studying for the CPA during the summer of 2015 and sat for FAR, but then decided to go with ACCA since it’s more popular in Europe. Since I moved to the US this summer I started to study for the CPA exam again. For the FAR section I used another course. Everything is individual, but I realized it doesn't really match my learning style. I took lectures, but then realized that I am more into reading study books and practicing multiple choice questions instead of listening to lectures. Everyone is different! I asked my manager at work if there is any place to practice as many MCQs as possible and he showed me . So I am looking forward to start learning with NINJA!
Ashley is a NINJA CPA blogger. I have finally scheduled my AUD retake. I wanted to sit for the exam on a Sunday. This would have allowed me to review throughout the day on Saturday. However, Saturday wasn’t available, so Sunday it is. There’s something about scheduling an exam date that makes everything seem more real. There’s no turning back at this point. Although I could reschedule it if I need to, I won’t. I am determined to do what it takes to cover all of the material and complete an adequate review prior to exam day. I am still plugging away at the . Every day, I answer as many questions as I can during my lunch break and once I get home. I also take crazy notes on the questions that I get wrong. Answering nonstop multiple choice questions is the best way to determine if you are prepared
Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. NINJAs – As I stare out my upstairs window into the gloomy and dark January sky, I would like to say… I finally hit the adaptive phase in NINJA MCQ! It took way too long, which I interpret as a sign of laziness and motivation. In case you didn't know, I have been on this journey for quite a while. I even passed REG at one point, hence my frustration over mental taxation as well as money poured into achieving this certification. For those who are curious, search the archives on the forum or on Another71.com. I think a lot of us go through this when we are working towards the CPA. I honestly feel that there is a good, “How I Met Your Mother” joke somewhere in there with the frustration that Ted Mosby feels on his dating life. I am trending around
CPA Reviewed #75: Friday February 10, 2017 1. Rich – Jeff – I have purchased the NINJA notes for FAR and I have Wiley CPAexcel. Should I watch the videos? Should I read the book and then do the questions? Should I just rewrite your notes and not use CPAexcel? 2. Terry – Hi Jeff – Unfortunately, I just got my score back yesterday on BEC and I failed with a 68. It doesn't make much sense to me because I failed BEC back in November with a 73.I could probably recite the formulas and mnemonics to you. In school I was always a good test taker, I just can't seem to pass these exams. What are your suggestions? 3. Dshankar – Hello Jeff – I am writing to you for my wife. She just got her REG score and she got a 74, again! Its like her 10th 74
Joe is a NINJA CPA blogger. After passing BEC in November I started studying for REG a few weeks later. I was able to read through most of the material before our year-end and then started listening to NINJA Audio. Then the real test started: a year-end close for a publicly traded corporation. I am not going to sit here and tell you I was able to study for 3+ hours every day during our year-end close. In fact, there were some days that did not involve any studying at all. I did, however, take every opportunity that I had to do a few multiple choice questions. In fact, I was able to do 300+ multiple choice questions (30 per day taking notes) in the two-week period during our year-end close. It may not sound like much, but I was able to tackle 300+ questions in a time period where
