NINJA CPA Review
Aida is a NINJA CPA blogger. First of all, I want to thank NINJA CPA Review. I had the BEC exam on March the 10th (Friday). I took a day off on Thursday to study all day with NINJA. That helped me so much, especially for the simulation tasks. Great materials, very structured information and useful tips. I do not know the results yet, but my first impression of BEC is that it was easier than I expected. I found helpful when people share their tips to success in CPA Exam. Below are my tips for taking BEC: Consider taking test on Monday – that way you will have more time for the preparation and will go to the exam with fresh information in your head Take as many sample tests as you can – if you are confident about certain topics – do not skip practicing multiple choice.

Kimberly is a NINJA CPA blogger. I took about 10 days to sulk over my failing AUD score. I had convinced myself that I would officially and unapologetically quit the exam altogether. I was so over what I had perceived as rejection by the CPA exam gods. I was so close, yet so far away at the exact same time. Then, by the 11th day, I had a change of heart and a new perspective. According to my Score Notification, I performed “Stronger” on my multiple choice questions and “Weaker” on my simulations, just as I had expected. I knew those questions inside out and was really confident about the material. I took my time and answered each question while being careful to look out for key words that indicated an exception to a rule. It definitely showed in my performance too. Conversely, the simulations are always tough for me
Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. NINJAs, Do you ever feel like you are too stupid? Do you ever feel that a dense and ugly shoe box could understand accounting better? That is what I feel like right now. A dense shoe box. I am falling further and further behind with my REG studying. I am trending only 50 percent, but nothing is sinking in after many many NINJA MCQs. I am starting to find it moderately infuriating because I have passed REG before. And now I have pushed into April because I cannot seem to grasp the concepts. The one study method that is helping material sink in is printing the tax forms and working through them every time an MCQ involves tax. It took me many years to realize I learn with a hybrid of visual and hands-on. Hence, listening to lectures in college was giant waste of
Ashley is a NINJA CPA blogger. I wish I could give you good news about my recent BEC Exam score release but I can’t. My score was a 69! Unfortunately, I was not able to finish my last written communication and feel that it may have cost me a passing score. On the last few takes of BEC, I haven’t been worried about the writing portion because I’ve always scored comparable in that section. This was the first time I got a weak score in that area. During the exam, my last testlet was a lot harder. This, inevitably, caused me to spend more time then I had anticipated on the MCQ and less on the writing portion. I was scrambling to put words together as time was running out. I have already started studying for REG; however, I plan to drop that and go back to studying for BEC.
