Hi, I been used becker more than a year but I feel it's boring and very long, do you think it's good idea switch to ninja? and how ninja course length is comparing to other courses? and can i pass FAR by using ninja only?
Anyone can pass with any review course. It comes down to effort. My understanding is that the Ninja book is less detail but still has enough of the core stuff that you need to pass. Ninja MCQ's are the truth
Personally, I believe it depends on the section you take and what your comfort levels are with the material.
When I first attempted this exam (2013) and re-started this journey now in 2018, I only focused on MCQs for FAR (with beckers, and at the time I was also just out of college so was kind of familiar with the accounting stuff). To me, FAR was more number based and I only used the book to look up few things here and there, but I passed with 75 or 76. So its do-able. On the other hand, I would def. use the book for something like AUD, because that's just a subject I always hated and feel uncomfortable.
I started out with cpaexcel and got a little frustrated trying to following their plan a little too bite-sized. I switched to ninja only. I was making hedge way with it then my family surprised me with Becker. I always wondered how Becker would work but I spent too much time trying to figure it out so I am switching back to Ninja. Or maybe I should use Becker lectures and use Ninja mcq's. The vote is still out on Becker, but I do like Ninja. I would at least supplement with ninja if you don't convert to it completely.
It begins with a 75
Been here too long as a cheerleader.....time to pass
