CPA Exam Study Motivation with August 2017 CPA Exam Score Release – CPA Reviewed #79 Holi – I am a recent college graduate going to work for a Big Four Accounting Firm in the fall. Because I have some time before then, I budgeted four months to take all four sections of the CPA. I started with the beast, and I studied for FAR. I really put in the time and took the exam last week. But I cannot shake the feeling that I failed and it’s weighing heavily on me. Because of the new exam format and changes, however, my score is being held for 10 weeks — until mid-August. By then, I would have hopefully taken all four sections without knowing any of my scores.

Working Moms and the CPA Exam – CPA Reviewed #78 Andrew: I’m about to begin studying for the CPA and just received my NTS for FAR. I’m planning to use the Ten Point Combo and have a few questions. 1.) Will there be any updates to the Ninja Book and/or NINJA Notes this year for any of the sections? 2.) I’m one of those people that are terrible at taking notes. Do you know if people have had good results with copying the Ninja Notes word for word? 3.) I’m trying figure out a rough 8-week study schedule for how to use the Ninja study framework for FAR.

Does the New CPA Exam Change How You Study? – CPA Reviewed #77 [Listen on iTunes] [Listen on Google Play] [Listen on Stitcher] [Listen on Tunein] 1. Ashley: Just a quick question about the FAR changes. With the purchase of the FAR Book or Notes, can’t remember which, came a PDF summary of the exam changes. I’m looking for some clarification on what exactly isn’t being tested on the “new” exam. The Summary states that the Far Book 2, Chapter VI section on Investment Property is no longer tested. Is this already reflected in the book? I’m having trouble narrowing down which section this is alluding to in the version I have and I want to be sure I’m not spending time on something I shouldn’t be. 2. Dave: If I purchase the MCQ questions for FAR and AUD for $47 each is this an unlimited time window or is

Marriage, Dating, and the CPA Exam – CPA Reviewed #76 [Listen on iTunes] [Listen on Google Play] [Listen on Stitcher] [Listen on Tunein] 1. Emily –  Hi Jeff, I have a question about NASBA Experience Verification Service. I could not get a job at a public accounting firm. Currently, I’m working at non-profit organization as an accountant. But there is no CPA in this accounting team. I’d like to know if families or friends can verify my work experience if they are CPA. If it’s not allowed, I should pay for the verification service. Do you know anything about interview of this service? 2. Jodie – I need study advice and to know more about your products. I was wondering if you could help me. I used another course and BOMBED bad. I was always a “look out the window person” in college then go home, read the book and
