III. Questions from Today's E-Mails:

    1. Pam – I live in Texas, but I am considering applying for the CPA Exam in Colorado. Do you have any opinions about this?

 

    1. Howard – What changes to the Exam do we have to look forward to in 2013?

 

    1. Robbie – I am moving to a new state soon. Is it mandatory for me to get my CPA license transferred to my new state?

 

    1. Chanel – I will take my first exam in January 2013. Should I purchase 2012 review materials now or wait until 2013 materials come out?

 

    1. Muhammad – How do I prepare for the Regulation simulations?

 

    1. Stephen – Is following a one-month study plan for FAR realistic? This is my first time taking that section.

 

    1. Tiffany – I’m trying to cram all four sections in before the end of the year. Is it a bad idea to take REG and FAR back-to-back? I’m concerned the GAAP and tax law differences will confuse me.

 

    1. Stacey – I recently applied to sit for the Exam. Should I wait until I know I’m eligible to buy review materials?

 

    1. Melissa – I have a B.S. in clinical lab science and completed my MBA. Do you think I’ll be eligible to take the exam without an accounting degree?

 

    1. James – I’m studying for FAR and have already gone through the first two chapters of my review course following their method of watching the videos then working MCQs for each chapter. I’ve realized this doesn’t work for me and want to use the NINJA method. Is it too late to go NINJA now?

 

    1. Jodi – I recently came upon your NINJA Study Planner, and I think it looks great. My concern is that I’ve heard so many “best ways” to study, that I’m nervous to try the NINJA way. Do you have any reassurance that your method works?

 

    1. Jessica – I just received a job offer, and my new employer wants to see my CPA Exam results. How do I get those results to my employer?
