NINJA CPA Review

Kristen is a NINJA CPA blogger. Support I am very fortunate to have a supportive husband who encourages me to study and is genuinely invested in my success. I consider myself very lucky in this respect. I hope that everyone has found someone who can be their CPA Exam support system whether it’s a family member, significant other, colleague or friend. I have found that my husband allows me to share that I am struggling and to express my disappointment in myself when I haven’t passed a section without judgment. That is such a relief. I know he doesn’t understand the difficulty of the exam or the material all that well but he believes with persistence I will get there, just as I do. Who has been your support through this process? Were you fortunate enough to take the CPA Exam with a peer or colleague at the same time

NINJA CPA Review

Jenny is a NINJA CPA blogger. First day of school is in the air. My Facebook is covered with smiling little children excited to start, and frowning teenagers tired of having their picture taken once again. I am excited to say that my husband and I are going to be joining the first day of school pictures this week. My older two kids are entering kindergarten and they are so excited. Something about a new school year just motivates me to study. I know it sounds crazy, but I have to look for motivation in the strangest places. There is just something about opening a fresh notebook that has clean pages waiting for notes. I think I have begun to lose it. Studying for the CPA Exam is slowly getting better. I have at least been able to make some time each day to sit in front of my computer and

NINJA CPA Review

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. As we near the end of the summer and the third quarter, I have one simple reminder for everyone. Life happens. There is no way of avoiding it. You have to prioritize and put things on hold sometimes (even if you don’t want to). I had one goal this year and that was to pass the CPA exam and get licensed. Not even close to that happening. Life and family needs got in the way. I had no choice but to put studying on hold because I just couldn’t fit the time in – I was barely sleeping and couldn’t focus on much of anything. Not to mention I was covering for someone at work on maternity leave and doing about 85% of her daily duties on top of my own. Let this be known: there is a light at the end of the

NINJA CPA Review

Joshua is a NINJA CPA blogger. The REG Exam is going to be a test that I have nightmares about for the rest of my life. I have accepted that fact and made peace with its power over me. That being said, I am happy to take on those future nightmares if my battle with this test comes to an end soon. I just have to keep plugging away at my materials to make sure that is the case. I thought that having one more test would help keep me motivated beyond normal test prep. Turns out, I still have nights where my mind is anywhere besides the textbook in front of me and there are times where I have to read a page or watch a video several times because I was completely tuned out. The struggle to stay focused is very real. It takes a lot of effort
