    Additional Comments: Ninja only. started with notes, then audio/MCQ/videos. Have some ACC background, work in related field. In hindsight should have hit MCQ / videos / book a little harder – the notes were a good broad overview but even as I'd feel confident with the content from notes/audio new stuff comes up in the MCQ / exam because of the wide breadth of topics. Did around 1k MCQs. Would've done more but I was crunching to get done before window closed.

    Ninja only - big fan! Work experience helped also. Do some sims and you're crazy not to do official CPA practice exam. My scores weren't great but I always outperformed my trending score. I was 4 for 4 and trying to get done ASAP (done in 6 months), not ace them 🙂

    Those of you studied with Ninja. Did you just use ninja? How long should I study with Ninja MCQ before the exam? I failed the exam with 61 and studied with Becker. I supplemented with Ninja too late in the game like a week ago. I am planning to retake it in Nov. Please advice on the best way to practice Ninja MCQ. Should I just practice Ninja and not Becker and trying to get to targeted trending score. I thought I did better than I scored, So I clearly have weak areas that I need to work on. Please advice.

    I don't get it. Same deal with AUD. Why am I scoring so much higher on the real exam? NINJA is just scaring me that I don't know the material…

    Studying for the CPA exam is easy. Its like riding a bike. Except the bike is on fire. And the ground is on fire. And everything is on fire. Because you're in H-E Double hockey sticks

    I just want to point something out to people that I think could be helpful. If you take the trending vs actual spreadsheet, it shows that the average trending score is 80.86% and the average actual is 80.98%, which implies that on average, people do better than what their trending score shows. I just want to point out that if you look at this data by test, you will see that on average, people who take FAR do better than their trending score, but all other exams people tend to do worse than their trending score. Using the spreadsheet as of today, people who take FAR are 4.546 points better than their trending score, while people who take AUD are 3.739 points WORSE than their trending score. REG and BEC both report actuals lower than trending, though less than one point difference between the two. Definitely keep this in mind if you use this data to “play the percentages” when studying for the exam.
