NINJA CPA Review

NINJA CPA Review

Jenny is a NINJA CPA blogger. Frustration. I think this is my word for the week. Several client issues; my baby boys discovering they can climb on things, particularly the kitchen table; and two hyper five-year olds are enough to make me crazy. Despite this chaos, I am actually finding time to study. However, studying has brought out a new level of frustration. MCQs and I do not play well together. I feel like I know the material until I see it in a multiple choice format. It is so frustrating to answer question after question incorrectly. I keep wondering, “When is this information going to stick in my head?” It is hard to stay motivated during these chaotic times, but I keep reminding myself that this is why I have to keep studying. All I can do is keep working through the questions and making sure I read the

NINJA CPA Review

Kristen is a NINJA CPA blogger. I think the worst feeling is the shred of hope that I may have slipped by with a 75 even though I knew deep down I hadn’t put in enough time. I actually was able to sleep through the AUD score release, so first thing in the morning I strolled downstairs before the kids woke up to check my score, instantly realizing that I should have stayed in bed. The 75 did not appear, honestly I did ok on the exam. I left having completed all of the SIMS and MCQs with time remaining, just 6 pts shy. Oy. Thursday just became my least favorite day this week. Here’s to hoping you NINJAs were more successful… I WILL get there.

NINJA CPA Review

Vanessa is a NINJA CPA blogger. Let me just say that the last few weeks have been hell (most especially this one). I knew taking on the challenge of being a full-time student, full-time worker and studying for the CPA was going to be tough, but it is really taking a toll on me. I am a zombie most days. Work and school have both been demanding. It is a quarter month so payroll and sales taxes have piled on top of my regular month end duties. School, on the other hand, has consisted of midterm after midterm. What was I thinking when I registered for 5 classes at the beginning of the quarter? However, I am happy to report that I am managing A’s and high B’s in these classes. CPA studying has been placed on the back burner. I’m really disappointed in myself for letting myself fall behind.

NINJA CPA Review

Stacey is a NINJA CPA blogger. The little moments keep me going. I was struggling with the sessions after work where I would sit down and challenge myself to study just a little bit longer each day. After about thirty multiple choice questions, I got tired! No matter what time of day, no matter what type of day I had, no matter how much sleep I got, I could not stay awake during these longer sessions. I tried to get up and walk around for 5 minutes then come back but I could not keep my eyes open. I started to question if I can really do this, if I am committed enough. But I want this! I am studying for FAR right now and am actually interested in many of the topics that involve my current job. I want to completely understand and be able to teach others (and
