Ask the NINJAs

Dear NINJAs, I am studying for my 5th attempt at Auditing. I received 71 my last go round. I am going to try the note re-writing concept you advocate. Do I re-write all 92 pages of the NINJA Notes at once and then again 4 more times or do I write one section 5 times then go to the next section? Thanks in advance, Tasha Dear Tasha, Re-writing your notes is an ancient NINJA study tactic. We NINJAs have been re-writing our CPA Exam notes since 71 B.C., except we had to do it on a stone tablet.

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
