Hi, I am new to the forums. Here is my situation. I work full time, and travel to clients. I can listen to anything at my desk with 1 ear bud, sometimes 2. I currently have All the becker materials (lectures, final review, flash cards), and when I try to listen to the lecture (4 hours worth) while working not much seems to stick. Even though I viewed the lecture already, and went to the class.
I listened to the demo of the exams for the ones that will be coming up, but want to hear more opinions as I paying a lot for becker already.May 29, 2014 at 4:20 am #558768Jeff Elliott, CPAKeymaster
The demo should give you a good idea if you can stand my Kansas twang 🙂

i got ninja audio for AUD and BEC. imo it is absolutely necessary for audit!!! it is fantastic!! BEC is a little harder because of the formulas that are harder to follow without seeing them but would still definitely recommend it!May 29, 2014 at 11:57 am #558770RandomAltMember
I tried to use the NINJA audio at my desk, but I found I just couldn't follow because I had to concentrate at work…and accounting principals are not something you can just put on in the background and absorb.
I do find the lectures perfect for when I'm driving in the car.May 29, 2014 at 11:59 am #558771May 29, 2014 at 1:19 pm #558772fiona87Member
I love the NINJA Audio. I have REG playing on a loop constantly while I'm at work. I can't listen to it with laser focus all the time, but every once in a while I'll get something and it'll stick. The simple trust being a simple child who can only say “no” is the best one so far that's popped in to my head and helped me answer questions.
My 4 year old has a different opinion of the audio (“MOM. Not AGAIN!”) but heck with him. 😉May 29, 2014 at 1:22 pm #558773JuliemiddleMember
Yes! I've bought it for all my exams so far. I think they were integral for AUD and REG. it really does help you better understand your review material.May 29, 2014 at 1:32 pm #558774NoraUMember
I passed only BEC so far. Ninja audio definitely contributed to my pass. I listened so many times I could recite it almost word for word.May 29, 2014 at 1:33 pm #558776UHC2005MemberMay 29, 2014 at 1:49 pm #558777ziebaParticipant
The audio is especially worth it if you drive a lot. I have all he materials but because I commute every day, I haven't removed the NINJA audio disc from my CD player in over a year. Every single time I'm in the car, whether a quick hop to Starbucks or a commute to work… just play it until you get sick of it and can finish Jeff's sentences. Don't stop once u understand everything, and don't shut it off if you aren't focused, just keep playing it ad nauseum.
If you have an outline of a topic seared into your mind, you can focus on the minutia without losing an understanding of the overall structure.
A lot of people work full time, but you have to set time aside each evening. I come home at 7PM and study eight to eleven or midnight. I'm fat, and my pants don't fit as well as they used to. When I fly on business, I take an early flight and spend all of Sunday studying. In the car, your best bet is Ninja audio.May 29, 2014 at 1:50 pm #558778jennibfoxMemberMay 29, 2014 at 1:54 pm #558779Determined CPAParticipant
Zieba you post cracked me up!
I love the audio! I highly recommend all of Jeff's products. I think of it like it can't make you worse off. Plus his material is reasonably priced so if you can swing it, I say try it out.May 29, 2014 at 10:06 pm #558780AnonymousInactive
From a low of 61 in REG to an 84. The only thing I added was the Ninja Audio! So is it worth it? Yeah!!May 30, 2014 at 1:02 am #558781AnonymousInactiveMay 30, 2014 at 1:22 am #558782AmayMember
Yes!May 30, 2014 at 1:35 am #558783yassyMember
