NINJA CPA Review

  To this day, I will continue to kick myself for not attacking the CPA exam straight out of school, before child number two came along… When I first started working in my current position, my boss even encouraged me to study on my downtime at work. Did I? Not so much… I had the time. Or at least more time. Those with 2+ children know what I am talking about. Something strange happens to time when you have more than one child, almost like it disappears exponentially. Adding anything besides work and family to the mix is a challenge, especially something as difficult and all consuming as trying to become a CPA. So here I am, attempting round two with Audit. I have been extremely bitter, and it has been like pulling teeth to get motivated to get back at it again. I have enjoyed not studying a bit

  It’s funny what things stick in your mind and what things don’t along this journey. Unfortunately for me, it’s usually the stuff that has no bearing on my exam scores that sticks with me, and the stuff that could put me over the top is the stuff that just bounces off, or has tack equivalent to that of a post-it note. A comment that has stuck with me through this process is one that I read out in the posts one day; “this test is all about confidence, and if you go in there with any doubts in your mind about your abilities, you won’t pass.” I have evaluated myself after receiving a score, and can honestly say that I deserved every score I got. In my evaluation, I can usually identify the areas where I was either vacillating, or didn’t think I knew the area well enough to

  Hi guys, I’m back! Hope your studying is going well and you’re not getting too distracted by this beautiful weather! I have decided to try a totally different approach for FAR since obviously my study plan for AUD and BEC didn’t work. I’ve found with the review lectures I would tend to only focus on the information I was told to highlight. So with FAR I decided to read the sections and take notes as I go along. Then do the MCQs and take notes on the questions I get wrong. The only time I watch the lectures is when I need more help understanding a concept. I’ve only completed lecture 1 that was all about the income statement, but so far this plan seems to be working better. Hopefully I’ll feel the same way after lecture 2 on Matching Revenue & Expenses, Partnerships and Foreign Currency Accounting! My
