Finally Screaming it: I PASSED the CPA Exam!

Ana is a NINJA CPA Blogger. Hello fellow NINJAs, I haven’t posted in a long while but I have been reading everyone’s posts and have been encouraged by your determination and hard work. Here I stand today on the other side, feeling so happy and accomplished, I can finally scream: I PASSED THE CPA Exam! I cannot believe this day is finally here where I can look back and say the battle is over and I can relax and enjoy my life! I started studying back in February of 2012. My goal was to pass all parts by the Fall but like many of you, I did not know what I was getting myself into. At that time I was working full time for a firm. First I studied and took FAR, but ended with a 69. I brushed that off and studied more intentionally for BEC which to my […]

This is it: I Passed the CPA Exam

Tori is a NINJA CPA Blogger. It has been approximately a month since my last post. I can honestly say that a lot has happened in the last 25 days. To briefly recap, I sat for FAR on 5/5, the day after my husband had a cycling accident and broke his femur, which required emergency orthopedic surgery to repair. Then exactly 14 days later, I sat for AUD, on 5/19. I received news that I passed FAR in the wave 2 score release in May. These were the last two sections that I needed to pass in order to not lose credit for BEC, which I passed in Q3 of 2012. There you have it, you are all caught up. Just kidding. This weekend at 7:00AM on Saturday (I’m in an indie state- CA), I rolled over, grabbed my laptop, which I strategically laid next to the bed the night […]

Going to be a CPA: I Passed the CPA Exam!

Shaila is a NINJA CPA Blogger. Hello, NINJAs! I have some exciting news to share with you. I got my FAR score back, and I passed! This means I am done with exams, and sadly, this is my last post. Sorry, but it is gonna be a long one! Here is a recap of my exam journey for you in case you have not been following along from the start. I put all four tests on my payment coupon in October 2012, but I was not motivated enough to actually study until after the New Year. Of course, it was one of my resolutions to take the tests. I took AUD at the end of February 2013 after studying pretty much every night after work and on weekends for five weeks. Before taking AUD, I thought I was ready, but I was not sure what to expect with it being […]

Ecstatic: I Passed the CPA Exam!

Ben is a NINJA CPA Blogger. Hello, NINJAs! Score release is upon us once again. And failing an exam means studying to re-take another exam, which really sucks. Many of us have gone through this multiple times. We study our butts off, go through a grueling exam, and wait painstakingly for the dreaded score release. There are so many unknowns that the stress simply eats away at you. For this NINJA, the studying and waiting will happen no more. I received a score of 80 on BEC, and I could not be happier! I remember going to school and struggling to balance family life and school life. I saw many of my friends excel in the courses, while I struggled to pass. I often questioned my abilities when there were so many around me who seemed to do well. I admit that I tried to finish school quicker because I […]
