NINJA CPA Review
Introducing Kimberly! My name is Kimberly and I work full-time as a government auditor. I have known that I wanted to be a CPA since my first high school accounting class. I’ve always been a numbers person, which gave me the confidence early on that I wanted to pursue a career in accounting. I’m also a single mom of a teenage son with autism. Three years ago, he and I left the comfort and familiarity of our hometown. We moved several hours away from family, friends, and any kind of support system so that he could get an education in a school system that could accommodate his needs.

I immediately began to panic and wasted about 15 minutes thinking about how I was going to fail this exam. After regaining my composure, I went back and reviewed the questions and felt a little bit better about my second pass through. The heartbreaker was the third testlet. It wasn’t a matter of how much I didn’t know, it was a matter of how many random questions they asked on this exam that I had either read only once (buried in a sentence somewhere in the bulk of the original
Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. The holidays are here, whether we like it or not. That tends to mean a huge distraction for us that are studying for the CPA exam. I had planned on taking REG on Dec. 8th. My husband was behind me and ready to take more on at home, until I was scheduled for 6 full days of meetings at work and extra projects all due in November. We discussed it and decided that it would behoove me to change the test date to the first weekend of January because with the days off due to the holidays, I can take extra time to study. That will allow me to take a second exam at the end of Q1 testing period before the changes in the exam. The fact that we decided on the test date together makes me feel I will have more backup
