NINJA CPA Review

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. Once these tests are over I need to plant trees to make up for all the paper I’m using while studying. I’ve already gone through one legal pad, front and back, with notes. This weekend I grabbed two more notebooks for the rest of my studying. I hope two is enough. One is for copying and the other is for my own notes. I plan to fill them both. It’s about two weeks before my test date and I haven’t studied as much as I’d hoped, so I’ve got a big to do list this week: Get through every remaining MCQ and SIM and take notes at least once. Next week I will study what I got incorrect and brush up on needed topics in my book. I’m getting seriously nervous about this retake, but feel confident that if I stick to my plan, I will

Kimberly is a Although the content for the CPA exam has not changed, the weights being applied to both the multiple choice questions and TBS have. AUD went from being 60:40 to 50:50. That is the part that freaks me out the most. If you do better on task based simulations than multiple choice questions, these changes work to your advantage. Unfortunately, this is not the case for me. I have always done well on the multiple choice questions. When given the correct answer, I can usually find it amongst the wrong options by using process of elimination. Typically, I can narrow it down to two possible answers. Then, I focus on the keywords to find the answer I am most confident is correct. I’m sure I’m not the only one that can pull this off. However, when it comes to task based simulations, it all falls apart for me. Jeff

Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. NINJAs It looks like I am finally making headway on learning tax and some business law. I am still struggling with some concepts with corporate taxation (I mean who wouldn’t struggle with corporate taxation?). Estate taxes are a fun ordeal as well. The major concepts are starting to kick in as I plow through REG . I feel that the key is to continue to plow through the software until your head hurts and you want to go jump in the big piles of snow. (See what I did there). Another study method I have been employing is sending questions back and forth to Blogger Stacey. It helps pass the work day and then we are required to try to teach a new concept. With teaching someone else being a great way to learn, I feel that this strategy will further our success. Spoiler

Joe is a NINJA CPA blogger. I’ve slacked off recently with my studies due to things in my day-to-day life. We moved into a new house, I was given new responsibilities at work, and it was quarter end close. In a blink of an eye it was two months since my last exam. I am just starting my AUD studies. I received my NTS for both AUD and FAR. Both must be taken by September 10th. My procrastination cost me a month of being able to take Audit. I originally planned for end of May, which has now turned into early July. That gives me a little over 4 months to pass both sections and be done with this exam. I am not worried, at least not yet. I have a plan that has worked well for my last two exams. There seems to be some material from other sections that I have
