NINJA CPA Review

Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. NINJAs, Sorry for being a whiny and demotivated pain in the butt lately. With some self-realization, I have changed up my study plan: I am scheduled for REG on July 1st; no excuses. I hate paying the 35 dollar change fee, so motivation is there not to cancel. Around May 20th, I reset my NINJA MCQ stats and am now pounding through individual topics until they are stuck in my head. I’ve cut my time on Reddit, Pinterest and Facebook in half. It was too easy to get distracted. By cutting out social media, there’s more time to study at work. The good new is —  it’s starting to sink in! Again, sorry for being a whiny and demotivated pain in the butt with all my negative and not fun blog posts. Moving forward, I am going to continue this strategy of individual topics until 2

Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. NINJAs Ready for a fun fact? I got 7 NINJA MCQs correct in a row! I know right? I’m actually learning. Shocker! The bad news is I am not trending any where near the 75 percent mark in REG. This has me moderately worried as I can not fail again. I have wasted too much time, money and stress on this test to fail again. Hence, a full court press into the final weeks to take this magical and glorious test. Speaking of failing again, I offhandedly mentioned to my boss about giving up because I am so tired to doing this process. And the money. Don’t forget about the money. He said that it is not for everyone and that some people are bad test takers like me. The guilt of giving up would be terrible, although I’m sure my wife would love

Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. NINJAs It looks like I am finally making headway on learning tax and some business law. I am still struggling with some concepts with corporate taxation (I mean who wouldn’t struggle with corporate taxation?). Estate taxes are a fun ordeal as well. The major concepts are starting to kick in as I plow through REG . I feel that the key is to continue to plow through the software until your head hurts and you want to go jump in the big piles of snow. (See what I did there). Another study method I have been employing is sending questions back and forth to Blogger Stacey. It helps pass the work day and then we are required to try to teach a new concept. With teaching someone else being a great way to learn, I feel that this strategy will further our success. Spoiler

NINJA CPA Review

Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. NINJAs, Do you ever feel like you are too stupid? Do you ever feel that a dense and ugly shoe box could understand accounting better? That is what I feel like right now. A dense shoe box. I am falling further and further behind with my REG studying. I am trending only 50 percent, but nothing is sinking in after many many NINJA MCQs. I am starting to find it moderately infuriating because I have passed REG before. And now I have pushed into April because I cannot seem to grasp the concepts. The one study method that is helping material sink in is printing the tax forms and working through them every time an MCQ involves tax. It took me many years to realize I learn with a hybrid of visual and hands-on. Hence, listening to lectures in college was giant waste of
