NINJA CPA Review

Joshua is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger. Hello Ninjas! For me it has come to the home stretch of studying for FAR, just under 2 weeks to go. I want to present you with a correlation of running a race and studying for the exam. I enjoying running, well I use the word enjoy as in I enjoy the benefits of running, maybe not so much the act of running. I have run several 5ks, 10ks, and even a half-marathon. What I have learned from training for those runs can defiantly help me in my and your studying. Let me share. When training for the half-marathon, being in physical shape to run is important but being in mental shape is even more important. Once you can run several miles, running 13.1 is not so much a struggle of the physical nature, but one mentally, where you got to want it.

Mark is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger. I hit a wall last week, and for the first time I really feel like I have no motivation to continue. I put all my energy into REG this window and I think I’m still drained from that battle. Although I knew it would be a quick turnaround, I had to schedule FAR in May or my NTS would expire. So as it sits right now, I have FAR in 5 weeks and I’ve barely cracked the book. I started the week by attempting to rewatch all the Becker lectures, but I quickly decided that is not the most efficient way of studying this late in the game. Now my plan of attack is to hit the Wiley MCQs hard, and listen to the NINJA Audio and reading the NINJA notes as many times as possible. Not only have I had no motivation,

Dawn is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger. Hey CPA enthusiasts! This past week was a week of reflecting on what I have studied, learned, and what I still need to know in the future upcoming weeks before May 19, my REG exam date. During this time of reflection, I started to really freak out about meeting this May 19 deadline. I stressed myself out so much that I even tried to change my exam date, but for some reason the Prometric website would not let me. After my failed attempt to change the date on the Prometric website, I spoke to someone at the Prometric center; she unfortunately could not change my exam date, either. She advised that I contact NASBA, so I decided to take my unchanging exam date as a ‘sign’ that I need to just buckle down and forge ahead with my studies. The problem is finding

Natasha is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger. Hope everyone has had a great week! Studying…where do I begin? I purchased my first home last September so this is my first spring in my new home. Needless to say, with the weather being so nice I want to be outside, doing things in the yard and taking my dog for walks. This past week was hard to study, and I know it’s not going to get any better. My motivation: I feel like I am learning this stuff more and more. When I am not failing all my practice tests I have motivation to study. I am starting to feel better than I ever have in the areas that have previously been the hardest for me. This gives me time to focus on other areas. My goal: Complete all lectures and Wiley MCQs this week. Continue to listen to the NINJA
