NINJA CPA Review

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. For the first time in a long time, I feel like I know what I am doing. I am working on the REG right now and plan to move to Sims soon. In the past, I only worked on one section of questions at a time. This time around (for the assessment part of the MCQs), I am working on everything. I plan to work on separate sections once I hit adaptive learning. Last night I worked on questions and averaged 66%, much higher than any other time. I’m aiming to take one exam at the end of April and to fit in another at the end of May. We’ll see. As I sat and worked on questions, I felt focused and like I actually have a chance at passing this darn thing. It’s been crazy busy at work (I’m in industry, so no

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. Why is choosing a CPA Exam testing date so difficult? Setting the date feels so final. You have to: Pick the perfect date for maximum study time. Pick a date that allows you to have a good chance to review before the exam. Pick a date that fits your personal needs. Someone who isn’t a morning person may not want an 8am test time, for example. You also need enough time to go over all of the material and NINJA MCQs. Am I the only one who takes a few days to decide on just the right date? Aside from making sure I pick the perfect test date (is that even possible?), I am studying and doing MCQ. I’ve looked over my notes and the MCQ in the back of the book when I can’t do the actual test bank. I plan to take a day or two off to

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. MCQ are my best friend! That’s what I’m telling myself, at least. Instead of jumping right into MCQ, I went over old notes and looked at what I had gotten wrong on the last go. I studied things that weren’t necessarily in the book, but were in . I’m hitting MCQ hard starting this week. I took a week off because I’m a Girl Scout leader and it was cookie time. We’re nearing the end of cookie time, so back to studying I go. I’m starting with MCQ. I haven’t done horribly so far. I’m focusing on taxation first and allotting time to complete every REG SIM since the exam is changing and those will show up more. I have a good timeline for studying so I can get this exam taken in April, then want to take another exam in May. I don’t like waiting until August to

NINJA CPA Review

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. Do you know the saying, “when it rains, it pours?” I do, especially lately. The past 3 weeks, every person in my family, including me, has had bronchitis, AND a stomach virus. Additionally, I’ve been working nonstop due to year-end at work. My house is a disaster, my husband is working a new schedule (so I’m on overtime mommy duty) and my REG notes and MCQ haven’t been cracked open the whole time. To be honest, I’m going crazy without studying. Things have slowed down (sort of) at work enough that I can take a lunch break again. So today I am spending my break planning and writing out a new study plan, to start tomorrow. I plan on diving into MCQ, taking notes on everything. This has been the longest process in the world because I get pulled into a million directions. I am
