How to Supplement Your CPA Review Course with NINJA
Scenario 1: You still have the book, but the MCQ/Videos have expired.
Solution: Go #FullNINJA as prescribed in this post about how to Pass the CPA Exam with NINJA only. No use in monkeying-around with printing out updates and such. Instead, use the outdated materials for a celebratory campfire after you pass.
Scenario 2: You want your CPA Review Course to do the heavy-lifting, but give it a NINJA boost.
This is how you do it.
N – Nail the concepts with your lectures. If something is confusing in your materials, look it up in the NINJA Book. Start listening to your NINJA Audio. Never drive to work without it on. You can listen to fun things when you're a CPA. Let that motivate you. 🙂
If your commute is 1 hour round trip, then that's 1 hour of NINJA Audio per day (and that's for the commute alone … if you can work and listen to the NINJA Audio: even better.)
Start reading the NINJA Notes in your downtime, especially at work. It's ok if you haven't studied the section before. It will all start clicking the third time through, regardless of where you are in your prep.
I – Take Intense Notes over your CPA Review lectures. First Time? Retake? 15th Retake? It doesn't matter. Take Intense Notes.
N – If this is your first time taking this exam, then do Non-Stop MCQ with your test bank and then in the review phase (A – All Comes Together), then you switch to NINJA and work backward, beginning with your weakest topic.
If this is a retake OR you've found yourself memorizing your MCQ, then switch 100% over to NINJA MCQ for this phase. When it comes time to do the SIMS, switch back and forth, according to which software you like better.
Again … if this is your first time taking this exam, use your CPA Review Course MCQ for N (Non-Stop MCQ) and use NINJA MCQ for A (All Comes Together) as you review.
If this is your first time taking this exam and you're memorizing the MCQ (which is really bad because it causes false confidence … you're scoring in the 90s, but on exam day, you score a 65 and can't figure out why), then switch over to NINJA MCQ 100% for both (N) and (A).
SIMS – First time or retake alike: switch back and forth between the two platforms.
J – Just Re-Write Your Notes This phase is pretty much universal, no matter if you're going #fullNINJA or supplementing. If you took killer notes, re-write those. If taking notes just wasn't in the cards this time around and you did the best you could do, then re-write the NINJA Notes.
Make sure you start the process at least two weeks out from exam day and take no longer than a week.
A – All Comes Together
If you're using your CPA Review Course MCQ in the Non-Stop MCQ phase, this is where you switch over to NINJA MCQ (if you've already switched, then keep using it here as well). Start with your weakest topics first and work backward. You can let the software feed you questions, but since you're in a final review phase, I recommend doing topic-specific mini testlets and really drill-down.
Do a set of 20 over your weakest area. If you're weak in several areas, then choose the one that keeps you awake at night first. The one you DREAD seeing on exam day. If you are hitting in the low-70s (70-75), then move on to your next weakest area.
The reason why you don't go for mastery here is that you have a lot of ground to cover in a short amount of time for your review. It's better to get all of the topics into the 70s and then come back and hit them again vs get a few into the 80s/90s and run out of time before you can get to the rest.
