NINJA CPA Review

Joe is a . I recently gave a presentation to my team about time management in the workplace and in your personal life. Here are a few facts and ideas about time management to help make finding time more manageable. The average person gets 50-60 interruptions per day. The average interruption takes 5 minutes, totaling about 4 hours or 50% of the average workday. 80% of those interruptions are typically rated as “little value” or “no value” creating approximately 3 hours of wasted time per day. 15-20 minutes of planning in the morning (or night before) will save 2 hours of wasted time and effort throughout the day. It takes approximately 30 days to establish a new physical or emotional habit. Work on a good time management tool and stick to it! Manage and keep track of your time with your Outlook calendar. Schedule meetings in the afternoon. Studies have

I Passed REGNINJA CPA Review

Joe is a NINJA CPA blogger. I Passed REG! After 8 weeks of studying I finally received my REG score of 85! I am very happy because 85% is the EXACT trending score I had on the NINJA MCQ. Here are a few pointers that I learned from passing both BEC and REG: Stick with a study plan. I tried to study an hour at lunch and two hours at night before bed. Some days I would get in a full three hours, most days only two and some nights only one. Just keep studying and try your best to get as much done as you can. Notes, notes, notes. I filled an entire black and white composition notebook with MCQ notes. Then I rewrote those notes and filled a second notebook. I attribute this method to the majority of my success so far. Get the . Listen in the car; listen

NINJA CPA Review

Joe is a NINJA CPA blogger. I am into the last few days before I sit for REG. I am fairly confident as I have been trending in the lower 90% range in NINJA MCQ for the past week or so. Here are a few tips as you prepare to wind down your studying a week or so before the exam. Up until the final day you should be pounding away at multiple choice questions. I have been averaging about 100 a day. Do not forget to do your simulations as well. While I do not spend a large amount of time on these simulations, I make sure to go thru each one at least once to ensure I am comfortable with the format and material covered. I will often write down any simulation numbers that have given me trouble so that I can review later. I spend at least

Joe is a NINJA CPA blogger. There are a million distractions that get in the way of studying for the CPA Exam. The key isn’t getting rid of all of them, but limiting them so they do not consume you and take up all of your time. My largest distraction is my phone. Text messages, Instagram, Twitter, emails are all a HUGE distraction. I actually deleted my Twitter account about 3 weeks before my last exam, looks like I’ll be deleting it again this weekend. I think one of the most important things is to not get rid of all of your distractions completely. If you have a favorite show, and you spent 5 hours studying on a Sunday, take the hour and enjoy yourself. If you just blasted through 300 MCQs and got a 80% trending score bring your significant other out to the movies. Another huge distraction is children;
