NINJA CPA Review

NINJA CPA Review

Stacey is a NINJA CPA blogger. I am finally breaking down the wall. I haven’t taken a test in six months, simply because I have a fear of failing another test. In my first year of studying for the tests, I took FAR twice and failed, and took REG twice, failing both, with my closest score being two points away. These tests, as we all know, cost money, time, and energy, none of which we will get back. I have come to terms with that, because it was holding me back from wanting to spend any more time, energy, or money on another fail. Of course I do not want another fail, but if I do not get rid of that fear, I’m also holding myself back from my chance to succeed and pass. I’m moving forward with my study sessions and am setting deadlines for myself: daily goals, and

Kimberly is a NINJA CPA blogger. Hiya NINJAs, Now that the holidays are behind me, I’ve started going to the library every evening after work to prepare for my AUD retake in January. This is the only place where I can remain focused without a lot of distractions. I’ve been abiding by the by reading my study materials while taking intense notes. I’m moving a lot slower through the chapters than I had planned, however. I want to be certain I’m reading for comprehension and not just to say I read the content. I’ve always been a slow reader. It’s an annoyance that has followed me from as far back as my teenage years. I remember being in class and the teacher would ask everyone to read a short story silently. When the teacher was ready to review the reading aloud, I was still attempting to finish up my reading. Whenever

Vanessa is a NINJA CPA blogger. I hope you all enjoyed ringing in the new year. Unfortunately, I was stuck in bed with the flu to end the last few days of 2016. Not fun. It must have been my body’s way of getting me to slow down and catch up on some rest. With the holidays, the craziness of work, school and studying for the CPA Exam, it makes sense. That is completely fine. Although I missed out on celebrating, I did make time to create goals for myself. Creating goals and resolutions  allows me to reflect on the previous year and, hopefully, create an even better new year. This year I only have 3 goals: to pass the CPA exam, graduate with my Master’s and finally purchase a home. These are all huge goals; however, with daily efforts they can be achieved. My game plan is to knock out as many exams

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. In my last post, I discussed organization. Being more organized for 2017 includes: a better chore chart for the kids a poster with bedtime routine (I have a 3-year-old who this helps A LOT) a monthly wall dry-erase calendar my handy, dandy planner. Between my husband’s work schedule and my daughter’s new study schedule, these items are excellent tools in making sure everything is done so I can study. I started implementing most of this at the end of 2016, so it was great for the last month with the busyness of the holiday season. Now that I  help monitor my daughter’s schedule, I have created a new study routine of my own. I’m in study mode as soon as I get the kids to bed. After all, I’ve already helped her study earlier in the evening. When my husband is home, he takes over bedtime and I get more time to
