NINJA CPA Review

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. My REG retake was yesterday and I have absolutely no idea how I did. MCQ felt good and I took my time on the SIMs and researched everything I could. I even took advantage of the 15 minute break when the clock stops to stretch my legs. Waiting until August will be painful, but until then I will keep pressing forward. June is a busy month for me; we’ve got 3 birthdays within 10 days of each other on top of school letting out and a weekend getaway we have planned. At work, I also have to take on extra work for someone who will be out for almost the whole month. So with all of that, I’m trying to be smart about my study time. I plan to move on to AUD while I wait for my REG results. My goal is to test

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. Once these tests are over I need to plant trees to make up for all the paper I’m using while studying. I’ve already gone through one legal pad, front and back, with notes. This weekend I grabbed two more notebooks for the rest of my studying. I hope two is enough. One is for copying and the other is for my own notes. I plan to fill them both. It’s about two weeks before my test date and I haven’t studied as much as I’d hoped, so I’ve got a big to do list this week: Get through every remaining MCQ and SIM and take notes at least once. Next week I will study what I got incorrect and brush up on needed topics in my book. I’m getting seriously nervous about this retake, but feel confident that if I stick to my plan, I will

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. The bad news is I tore my meniscus. The good news is I have to sit and study for REG. Nobody can ask me to get up and do anything because I’m under doctor orders to sit. Not that I want the pain, but hey, I need to study. I’m focusing on one section at a time, in order of my lowest scores and moving on. I’m working on seeing every question I need to in each section and taking notes on what I got wrong. Once I see everything, I will copy my notes and go back to work on everything I missed. I also want to take a few days to copy the  to help them stick better in my head. I set my test date last week and now the pressure is on. The date is the end of the quarter because that’s

NINJA CPA Review

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. As much as I want to report how awesome I’m doing on REG MCQs, that’s not quite the case. Yet I have been faithfully working on every day. While my average is not as high as I would like, it’s better than it has been in the past. My problem area is Federal Taxation of Individuals and Entities. Once I get through the assessment phase, I will focus on those areas first. Then I will work on each area’s lowest average to highest. I’ll also take notes on anything I get incorrect and some I get correct, but want to reinforce. I can’t seem to get away from stress and things popping up, but I’m not letting these things deter me from my goal anymore. In order to deal with the stress of life and the stress of this exam, I get up early and
