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
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.

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.
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
