NINJA CPA Review

Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. The wait continues. In case you haven’t heard, I took REG on July 1st and now have to wait almost 3 months to get the results of my computerized exam. Good lord. On the bright side, it kind of puts the score release “out of sight out of mind”. Hopeful for another pass from REG while study for AUD to take by the end of quarter 3. I am just beginning my AUD studies. For those that have been around a long time like me, I failed AUD twice: 71 and 73. AUD is one of those beasts that it is hard to conceptualize if you are more of a numbers person like me. I feel that this has been my demise with AUD. My AUD study plan is: Nail the NINJA MCQ – AUD is one of those that you need to just

NINJA CPA Review

Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. NINJA’s… I took REG on July 1st and it was the first time with the new testing format. Hence, I struggled with time management and how much time to leave for the sims. I walked out tired and exhausted – and kind of annoyed and angry. I ran a couple errands before heading home to my small town so I wouldn’t have road rage on Interstate 29.

Visited my Grandma-in-law and she said “it looks like you need a beer” when I walked in. Why

Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. One day to testing again!…. I am feeling somewhat confident. I have passed REG before. Even on the first try! However, with so many failures under my ninja belt (see what I did there), I still doubt myself. You can see that I am exhausted from the anxiety and stress and my body has been running in overdrive mode…However, there is hope that I get to: 1. See the new format in its glorious appearance and, 2. Pass REG again How am I doing from a knowledge standpoint? I have been scoring in the high 70’s with the NINJA MCQ and I have been retaining a lot of the material. What am I doing the night before? I am making my cheat sheet that I use to memorize right before I get out of the car and walk into Prometric. Then I quickly regurgitate

NINJA CPA Review

Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. I am making my way through MCQ during this blistering and warm June. I see progress as I get closer to the July 1st testing date, but with summer in full swing there are many ways to get distracted from studying for the CPA Exam. Let’s take a look at some: Perennials need watering. Let’s go outside! Darn Quack grass is invading my lawn. Let’s go outside! Nice day to sit on the porch and have a beer. Let’s go outside! We received an inch of rain from a storm. Grass needs mowing. Let’s go outside! Garage Sale down the street. Let’s go outside! Bird Feeders need filling. Wouldn’t want our squirrels to go hungry… Let’s go outside! Mulch was on sale at Lowes. Better put it down. Let’s go outside! Severe Thunderstorm is rolling in. Let’s go outside! (full disclaimer – I know this is
