NINJA CPA Review

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

Kimberly is a NINJA CPA blogger. My son is graduating from school in a few short months and, as a result, our schedules are starting to get a bit hectic. Nevertheless, I have finally gotten started on the NINJA MCQ for AUD. I have been reading my AUD book for what seems like forever. I actually enjoy doing AUD MCQ. I’m doing better than expected, which means the reading is paying off and I’m retaining the information from my notes. The is truly working for me.

This is the only place where I can remain focused without a lot of distractions. I’ve been abiding by the by reading my study materials while taking intense notes. I’m moving a lot slower through the chapters than I had planned, however. I want to be certain I’m reading for comprehension and not just to say I read the content. I’ve always been a slow reader. It’s an annoyance that has followed me from as far back as my teenage years. I remember being in class and the teacher would ask everyone to read a short story silently. When the teacher was ready to review the reading aloud, I was still attempting to finish up my reading. Whenever

NINJA CPA Review

Kimberly is a NINJA CPA blogger. I sat for AUD last October and got a score that I dare not mention. Admittedly, I really struggled on the simulations and I know it was a direct result of not having a strong understanding of some key concepts. Needless to say, I was shocked and devastated because I am an auditor by profession. Bombing AUD was inexcusable and embarrassing. At that point, I knew that I needed to approach this exam from a different perspective. I began studying for my AUD retake a few weeks ago and I’ve been doing so using the NINJA method. This is my very first time studying this way. It is so different from the way I usually do things. Normally, when studying for any section of the exam, I read a chapter or watch the lectures for that chapter. Then, I immediately do the multiple choice
