CPA Reviewed #75: Friday February 10, 2017 1. Rich – Jeff – I have purchased the NINJA notes for FAR and I have Wiley CPAexcel. Should I watch the videos? Should I read the book and then do the questions? Should I just rewrite your notes and not use CPAexcel? 2. Terry – Hi Jeff – Unfortunately, I just got my score back yesterday on BEC and I failed with a 68. It doesn’t make much sense to me because I failed BEC back in November with a 73.I could probably recite the formulas and mnemonics to you. In school I was always a good test taker, I just can’t seem to pass these exams. What are your suggestions? 3. Dshankar – Hello Jeff – I am writing to you for my wife. She just got her REG score and she got a 74, again! Its like her 10th 74

CPA Reviewed #74: Wednesday January 25, 2017 1. Alejandra – Is it doable to study REG in 5 weeks and AUD in 4 weeks? I work full time but I could use 2 week vacation to study for these exams. 2.

I got frustrated using my expensive CPA Review Course (for a number of reasons). I decided to use Ninja notes only for my retake and I passed with a 78. How reasonable in your opinion is it for me to simply pass the rest of my exams with only NINJA Notes. 3. Kimberly – I passed these tests in 2009, but never filed for the license. Can I still do that, or do the test results expire? 4. Jon – Quick questions

Ask Jeff Facebook Live 1. Tracy – Congrats on the new baby!! Your wife is a trooper! I am taking REG again for the 5th time in February…got a 69 in July and 70 in December. On the Ninja Notes, in the partnership section it says the below:     Items not deductible on Schedule K         Instead these flow through the Partners’ K-1:             Investment interest             Foreign taxes paid             Charitable contributions             179 expense But on an actual Schedule K those items are deducted. What am I missing? Gross Sales (Except for partners) (Accrual basis only) (payments to partners are OK) (except 179) = Ordinary Business Income ITEMS NOT DEDUCTIBLE ON SCHEDULE K Instead, these flow to Partners’ K-1 o Investment Interest Expense o Foreign
