NINJA CPA Review

Kimberly is a NINJA CPA blogger. I am beyond distracted. Everything is going on at once. My son graduates from high school in May. Any parent that has been through senior year knows exactly how much of a whirlwind it can be, especially when you have a kid as active as mine. Plus, he has autism and doesn’t drive. Don’t get me wrong; everything taking place is super positive. Prom is behind us and we’re looking forward to the scholarship awards program this week. Still it’s a lot, to say the least. Then there’s the emotional rollercoaster that comes along with this milestone. I’m unfocused in every way imaginable. Personally, all of the life events taking place are not really conducive to studying for the CPA exam. As much as my heart wants to keep up the pace with the study schedule I created, it’s challenging. As a single parent, it’s

Aida is a NINJA CPA blogger. Along with reviewing BEC, I started studying for REG. It’s more challenging than BEC in terms of information size. The content, however, is easier for me because I like studying law and regulations. Moreover, I think it is very helpful to know taxation (individual and corporate) to understand how tax returns work. So, I have started with taxation. This section seems to require memorization of a lot of facts (e.g. income sources) and figures. I was surprised to discover Ethics is a large part of REG. Don’t underestimate ethics since the questions are not as straightforward as they may seem. I’m planning to use the same strategy I used in preparation for BEC – skimming through the book and practicing as many NINJA MCQs as possible. Additionally, since starting in April 2017 there will be 9 simulation tasks (more than there used to be), I

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. As much as I want to report how awesome I’m doing on REG MCQs, that’s not quite the case. Yet I have been faithfully working on every day. While my average is not as high as I would like, it’s better than it has been in the past. My problem area is Federal Taxation of Individuals and Entities. Once I get through the assessment phase, I will focus on those areas first. Then I will work on each area’s lowest average to highest. I’ll also take notes on anything I get incorrect and some I get correct, but want to reinforce. I can’t seem to get away from stress and things popping up, but I’m not letting these things deter me from my goal anymore. In order to deal with the stress of life and the stress of this exam, I get up early and

Vanessa is a NINJA CPA blogger. I just about wrapped up the NINJA MCQs. I have exactly two weeks until my test date. It makes me nervous thinking about the new exam and what it entails, so I have been trying to prepare myself the best way possible. For the next two weeks my game plan is to drill and memorize as much of what I’ve learned as I can and be able to fully explain concepts without having to look them up. I printed out the blueprint of the new exam and have been making my study guide based off what will be on it. This has been time consuming, but I believe it will make me more confident on exam day. Unfortunately, April is busy season. I work in tax and the tax deadline is right around the corner. I’m not looking forward to the next two weeks
