How to Study For the CPA Exam (with NINJA)

Scenario I: How to Pass the CPA Exam (with NINJA Only)

Ready to take the plunge and go #FullNINJA?

You're in Good Hands.

(Note: If you're looking to use NINJA as a supplement to a course like Becker, Wiley, etc. skip to Scenario II below)

Let's break this down step-by-step.

Step 1: (N)INJA – Nail the Concepts

Read your NINJA Book for two weeks max. Create a per-day study budget according to how many days out of the week you're going to study.

Are you going to study five days a week for those two weeks?

Great. That's ten study days.

Just using a nice round number, assume a book has 500 pages. That's 50 pages per day.

By 50 pages per day, I mean reading … skimming … going over examples … skimming some more … application questions.

Make sure you hit your daily budget!

This is where you deploy two other NINJA weapons: NINJA Notes and NINJA Audio.

You want to consume each of these as many times as possible between now and exam day.

Have a 30-minute commute each way? That's 5 hours of NINJA Audio per week, which is at least one listen all the way through, depending on the section.

Load it onto your phone and listen as much as possible.

At the grocery store? Earbuds (Airpods) + NINJA Audio.

Doing laundry? NINJA Audio.

At the gym? NINJA Audio.

Going to sleep at night? NINJA Audio (a side benefit is that you'll fall asleep faster than ever before).

NINJA Audio.

NINJA Audio.

NINJA Audio.

People tell me all of the time, “I kept hearing your voice on exam day.”

(They also tell me that their kids hate the NINJA Audio because it's always on. #winning)

Similarly, load the NINJA Notes onto your tablet, phone, and if you want to – print them out.

Read them constantly.

Some people don't like the fact that sometimes they are listening/reading material in the notes or audio that they haven't yet covered in the book.

Two things here:

1) When you do cover it, it will make more sense.

2) The repetition over time will pay big dividends, I promise.

Notes Notes Notes.

Audio Audio Audio.

Your kids and significant other will be sick of my voice, which will cause them to celebrate even more once you pass and they chant, “no more ninja!”

Step 2: N(I)NJA – Intense Notes

If you've already plunked down a few thousand on a CPA Review course, you likely had study videos, and you probably took notes.

When the instructor said something interesting, you wrote it down.

Same thing here.

As you see things in bold, or something in an example that catches your eye – write it down.

I recommend buying a big stack of legal pads and going to town on them.

Keep in mind that taking notes is still part of your daily budget. Using 50 pages as an example – you still have to hit it even though you're taking notes in addition to reading.

Very Important: If you find yourself getting bogged down and can't quite get through the book at the budgeted pace: That's ok. It's normal actually.

Keep going.

After your two weeks are up, punt the book and move on to the MCQ. You can make up lost ground there.

Step 3: NI(N)JA – Non-Stop MCQ

MCQ. MCQ is the most critical step in your CPA Exam prep. Anyone who tells you otherwise is either confused or has another agenda.

You can read the NINJA Book all day long. You can watch XYZ review course videos about ABC topic, but one thing is for sure:

The multiple-choice questions in NINJA MCQ are from past exams.

Yes, they are theoretically retired questions (but come on, you can only ask a question about Bonds or Leases so many different ways), but these are actual concepts that the AICPA has tested on in the past.

Concepts are wonderful.

Concepts that have been tested are wonderful-er. That's a word.

What I mean is this:

NINJA MCQ is where the proverbial rubber meets the road. You must know the concepts in your software.

I recommend camping out in this middle stage 2-3 weeks.

If you miss a question: write it down.

If you get it right but think you'll forget it in 3 weeks: write it down.

You can make up for a lot of lost time by cranking on the MCQ.

What about the Simulations?

Good question. Let's talk about that.

I have never been a huge proponent of spending a lot of time on the Simulations.

I know some people disagree, and that's fine.

Here is why.

You can study 20 SIM topics and get none of them on exam day.

You are guaranteed to see your MCQ topics on exam day, and those same topics will be tested in the SIMS.

Consequently, I believe that if you are conceptually-sound enough to master the MCQ, then you can apply that knowledge to the SIMS.

Let's face it: The SIMS are simply MCQ concepts tested another way.

Sure, they have a different look and feel, but that's why it's important to do the AICPA Sample Test.

In the past, I recommended people do an 80/20 split between MCQ/SIMS. That was when SIMS were 40%. They're 50% now … So, I can see someone doing 70/30.

(Although, I'm still a fan of 80/20 … 75/25? Sure. I'll give some ground there.)

Step 4: NIN(J)A – Just Re-Write Your Notes

It's boring.

It's tedious.

It's horrible.

(hmmm…sounds vaguely like the CPA Exam itself…)

It works.

Two weeks out from your exam, re-write your notes.

What if taking notes along the way wasn't for you, or you didn't have time, or whatever?

No worries. Re-write the NINJA Notes.

In the decade-plus that I've been recommending this, I can count on zero fingers the number of emails from people who were upset that they spent all of that time re-writing their notes.

I have received many emails over time from people thanking me for recommending that they do it.

There's nothing magical about it. It's simply this:

Taking your furious note scribbles and re-writing them into little fact nuggets causes you to think about the material and let it marinate in your brain.

It's why highlighting is terrible and taking notes is good. Your brain absorbs the information better.

Again, only do this if you're two weeks out…because it will take a week to do this step.

Step 5: NINJ(A) – All Comes Together

You made it! Review time. It's your final week of exam prep.

Your Notice to Schedule is printed out (multiple copies – including one in your glove box), and it's t-minus seven days.

Start doing 20 question mini testlets in the MCQ, starting with your weakest topic first.

Picking your weakest topic is easy.

Sure, you have the analytics showing your deficiencies, but think about which topics you HOPE they don't test you on.

The ones that scare you to death keep you up and night and paralyze you with anxiety and fear to the point that you can't even utter their names.

Those are your weakest topics. Start there.

Do 20 question sets until you're scoring in the mid-70s and move on to your next-weakest topic.

If you're especially weak in an area, it might be a good idea to watch a NINJA PLUS or Hot Spot video over that area before continuing.

As you review during this final week, you only have time for three things:


When you're not cranking on NINJA MCQ, you're reading NINJA Notes.

When you make a quick run to the grocery store to grab cat food for Fluffy, you listen to the NINJA Audio.

When you're walking through the store to the cat food aisle, you're listening to the NINJA Audio on your phone.

When you're in the waiting room at the dentist: NINJA Notes.

When you're at work, staring at spreadsheets: NINJA Audio.

Utilize every last study second and cram as much info as you can.

As you do all of this, you'll ask yourself, “Hmmm … What if I listened to the audio non-stop during week one of my next exam as intensely as I am week seven for this one?”

This is where you take an afternoon and watch the NINJA BLITZ videos, preferably the afternoon before your exam for maximum cramming impact.

The Night Before The CPA Exam

Some people say, “Go watch a movie. What's done is done.”

I say, “Pffft” to that.

I am a big fan of 1 pm exams so that you can study late the night before and then get up the next morning and hit the weak areas one more time.

Crank. Crank. Crank.

Cram. Cram. Cram.

Notes. Notes. Notes.

Read the NINJA Notes so many times that you hate me, the word “NINJA,” and the state of Kansas in general.

(There's nothing to do here, except head West to Colorado, so we're not offended.)

Listen to the NINJA Audio up to the millisecond that you get out of the car to walk into Prometric, and give your exam a spinning back-fist to the face.

Take several days off from studying after your exam. If possible, go on that Road Trip (and send pics to your co-workers who are still studying).

NINJA MCQ – A must! Solving through all of the MCQ, understanding solutions, and adding new information nuggets to your notes — absolutely critical.

With the NINJA Notes, I printed out the notes and used as a knowledge check closer to the exam. Information is high-level, so you can quickly run through and get a comfort level on what you should go back to review in detail.

NINJA Audio is nice to use during the commute or if you are an auditory learner. The Audio MCQ are nice to keep you engaged.”

Scenario II: How to Pass the CPA Exam (with NINJA as a Supplement)

You want your CPA Review Course to do the heavy lifting, but give it a NINJA boost.

This is how you do it.


Nail the Concepts with your Course lectures.

If something is confusing in your Course 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.


Take Intense Notes over your lectures.

First Time? Retake? 15th Retake? It doesn't matter. Take Intense Notes.


Non-Stop MCQ.

If this is your first time taking this exam, then do Non-Stop MCQ with your Course 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 Course 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 test bank questions (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.


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.


It All Comes Together.

If you're using your 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.

You can study for FAR in 7 weeks vs the typical 8-10 weeks, giving you a chance to hang out or grab a quick road trip with friends and loved ones before your next exam prep starts, while your co-workers and peers are still locked in their spare bedrooms, studying on a Saturday night.

How will it make your life easier?

Sure – the CPA Review providers get their core questions from the AICPA. The nuances come from the edits to the questions as laws and regulations change, as well as the answer explanations, which each course has to create themselves.

Example: The same lease question (FAR) or itemized deduction question (REG) was licensed to each review provider way back when (2002, 2007, etc), but a lot has happened since then and many of the core questions won't be the same because they had to be re-written by each course's editorial staff in order to line up with the law changes.

What one editor thinks is important (some nuance of revenue recognition), will differ with the next editor, and with that, you cast a wider conceptual net so you're more prepared on exam day.

To put it another way, each review course has mostly the same questions, but those questions have evolved over time and are likely now quite different.

This is why using two test banks is recommended.


What is it?

A high-level view of the tested materials. Perfect for review and/or cramming.

AUD Notes: 85+ page PDF
BEC Notes: 90+ page PDF
REG Notes: 120+ page PDF

How will it make your life easier?

Not everyone is a note-taker. In fact, taking notes can be stressful because of the fear that you might miss something, so we accountants tend to OCD things and write everything down, which has diminishing returns.

NINJA Notes takes the stress away in two key ways:

1) It serves as a safety net for your own notes. You're free to jot down what you think is important and keep going. Miss something? NINJA Notes has you covered.

2) If you don't take notes, that's ok. It's not ideal, but neither is life. NINJA Notes has you covered.

During the Just Re-Write Your Notes phase, if you have nothing to re-write, again, NINJA Notes has you covered.

Think note-taking/re-writing is a bunch of nonsense?

Harvard Library doesn't think so.

“Throw away your highlighter: Highlighting can seem like an active reading strategy, but it can actually distract from the business of learning and dilute your comprehension … Pen or pencil will allow you to do more to a text you have to wrestle with.”

—Interrogating Texts: Six Reading Habits to Develop in Your First Year at Harvard

3) Reading the NINJA Notes one last time the morning of your exam is the perfect way to cap off weeks of study prep and it will be fresh in your mind as you confidently walk through the doors of Prometric.


What is it?

The most-popular CPA Review audio on the market that's designed specifically for auditory learning.

How will it make your life easier?

Life is busy. You can't just sit down and study whenever you want. NINJA Audio solves this.

Commuting to work? Study.
At the gym? Study.
Doing laundry? Study.
Mowing the lawn? Study.
Sitting at your desk at work? Study.

How many extra study hours a week does the NINJA Audio buy you? 5? 15? 20?

It's significant and it adds up.

CPA Candidates who use the NINJA Audio are at a significant advantage because they are studying when their peers otherwise can't.

NINJA Flashcards

What is it?

CPA Exam Flashcard App (iOS/Android)

How will it make your life easier?

That guilty feeling when you've just spent the last hour wasting time on Facebook will be gone.

Simply delete your time-wasting app of choice (for me, it's fantasy baseball – don't judge!) and replace it with the NINJA Flashcard app.

The next time your thumb insists on tapping its favorite spot, you'll be studying instead. 🙂


What is it?

Cram-Style study videos. It's a hybrid of the NINJA Notes and NINJA Audio. It's lightning fast with no fluff.

How will it make your life easier?

BLITZ is a perfect review tool for the final week of your CPA Exam prep. It keeps your attention when you might otherwise space-off (this late in the game, you're tired and ready to be DONE). BLITZ can be easily be completed on a Saturday afternoon.

Some people like BLITZ more than the Notes and Audio – everyone is different.

One of the perks of NINJA Monthly is that you don't have to pick and choose what you buy – you get everything for the old price of the NINJA Notes alone ($67).

Bottom Line:

This roadmap should help you go #fullNINJA and study with NINJA CPA Review as a standalone course, or pair your CPA Review Course with NINJA and fill in the study cracks with the NINJA Notes, NINJA Audio, and NINJA MCQ.

One more thing: we have the friendliest refund policy in the industry, so investing in NINJA is 100% Risk-Free (and a no-brainer).

Frequently Asked Questions

Click Question text to see Answer

A: No! That's the beautiful thing about NINJA Monthly - you never have to go shopping for study materials again. Once you subscribe to a section and take that exam - email us and tell us which section you want next and we'll switch you.
A: Exactly. It's like Netflix for the CPA Exam - once you're done with one section, you can study for the next - all under the same subscription.
A: Yes – same download privileges as if you had purchased them standalone.
A: Another big perk about the NINJA Monthly plan - you never have to email or wait for updates again ... if you're an active subscriber, just log in and download the most current version of the Notes, Audio, Book, etc.
A: You do not need to sign up for anything else. You'll just contact us inside the Dojo and you'll be switched - as simple as that!
Your $67 subscription will renew automagically each month, but you may cancel it at any time. No commitment beyond the month you’ve paid for.
A: No - not at all. This is more like a 'budgeting' plan or a 'so your family doesn't have to skip summer vacation because you bought study materials plan'.
