What is NINJA Sparring?


NINJA Sparring is the CPA Exam Tutoring service offered through NINJA Monthly.

The weekly live sessions are done via Zoom and all NINJA Monthly members can attend and ask questions.

We run four live sparring sessions a week with the following schedule:

  • Monday – FAR
  • Tuesday – AUD
  • Wednesday – REG
  • Thursday – BEC

Most sessions include an accompanying Excel worksheet.

Replays are available the following day and there are currently 170+ hours of replays available, broken down by CPA Exam topic.

These sparring sessions are so helpful. I have a confession, at first I thought “Sparring” meant it was like a knowledge competition on the topic, so I avoided it like the plague. Still laughing at myself.
