NINJA CPA Review

Alex is a NINJA CPA blogger. First as an adopted Texan I must say please keep my state and all areas affected by Harvey in your thoughts and prayers. The recovery is going to be long from but I know we’ll get there together. I PASSED AUDIT!!!! It was the biggest sigh of relief seeing that magical 76. I know it’s not a 90 or 95 but hey we’re just trying to pass and passing is a 75 so if I get a 76 on all parts I will be the happiest CPA you have ever seen. Now if you ask any CPA candidate I’m sure we will tell you that things didn’t always go according to plan but we also had habits we maintained that helped as pass. I’d like to discuss the habits that I used in Audit that I’ll be bringing with me to FAR as well

Deep is a NINJA CPA blogger. My name? Deep, and I just graduated. Yay me, right? Well, it was quite an accomplishment and a great reason to celebrate, but I have no job. So here’s the beginning to my story, and my journey to the CPA. Fresh out of college, going strong on the graduation high. Job hunting, with the highest expectations. Of course, not the best way to go about things, but I have the CPA to look forward to. The greatest thing I could do with my Accounting degree – so I’m told. FAR, AUD, REG BEC.. the order I thought was most convenient, but I was instantly deterred. Mostly due to the fact that FAR is the “beast” that everyone tries to tackle and comes up short on. But also because I didn’t factor in the time I spend with family and friends. Time management, the true

Alex is a NINJA CPA blogger. Welcome to the longest week of my life. Next week after 4 AND A HALF MONTHS I will receive my first CPA exam score for AUD. I would love to say that I know I passed or even that I felt I failed but I can’t. I just have to say that phrase that our parents told us when we for sure not going to get that toy all the other kids had, “we’ll see”. After taking my first exam I tried unsuccessfully to integrate life into the CPA exam and that is a task I can confidently say I have failed. Now I didn’t mean to fail at this CPA and life integration but it’s hard. It’s like going on a diet you have little cheats, working a little later than you need to, spending a few minutes (hours) on Pinterest, a few

Derrick is a NINJA CPA blogger. When is enough, enough? It has been an extremely long road to CPA certification. In undergrad, accounting was just a class I had to take. It wasn’t until I gained experience and started moving up the corporate ladder that I began to see the value in having a CPA. Due to my disdain for accounting in college, I needed to complete about 24 hours of accounting in order to become eligible to sit in my state. After a year and a half of full-time work and attending night classes, I was finally ready to defeat the beast. These four exams would be a mere formality, right? WRONG! That was 2011. It has been a series of starts and stops since then. Work, life changes, travel, family commitments, and sheer laziness have all played a part in delaying my journey. In November 2016 I decided
