Ninja Claude writes in, I have exactly 30 days left before I take FAR, my first section, and my studying is somewhat improving, and I’m feeling a little better, but I have a question about the exam itself. Is it true that the CPA Exam is curved – they want a certain number of people to pass each time it is administered, so they might actually curve the scores down if too many people do well? I really want to get through this thing on my first try, and any further nuggets or tidbits would be appreciated, especially the ones that would stop me from getting something like a 74. Okay. Is the CPA exam curved? I don’t know. That’s been one of those conspiracy theories that have been around for as long as I have been in exam land, which is over ten years. So… When you look at

I personally used this strategy to pass Auditing in less than three weeks. You wake up one sleepy Monday in August. June is a distant memory. July was a blur.

How to Pass the CPA Exam using only NINJA CPA Review Hey, everyone. Jeff Elliott here with another71.com. In this video, I am going to walk you through how to pass the CPA Exam with only NINJA CPA Review Materials. What prompted me to make this video was I got an email from Chris. He says, “I’ve been a member of your online forum for quite a while and was excited to see you had started to offer your own review course.
