Alpal617 I used a program other than Ninja when I started in Feb 2018 and failed FAR Q2 2018 the first time I took it, however after implementing the Ninja strategy and utilizing Jeff's materials I did a retake on FAR Q3 2018 and passed then went on to pass REG in Q3 2018, and both AUD and BEC in Q4 2018. I have always worked in the private sector never in public accounting and before starting Jeff's program my last college course was 8 years prior. I would suggest as someone above stated, do the monthly subscription with Jeff it is well worth it, as I stated I have used other programs but did not pass until I used Jeff's. I look forward to seeing you post in here that you passed, please keep us posted.
@Lurking_CPA – I completely agree with that post, and I think a lot of people have the problem of not knowing their study habits. I know that I certainly had the same experience as you described. I did not know how to study and it took me 3 years to finally pass the exams. After multiple failures (and losing the one credit I did have), I finally switched my study habits and then knocked out all the exams in just over 6 months. It made the world of difference for me.
So my advice, of course, is don't give up! It will all be worth it. Just remember why you want this and that studying and sitting for exams is just a temporary pain that will all be worth it when it's done. The CPA is hands-down my greatest accomplishment because I know I WORKED for it.
