Welcome New NINJA Blogger Francine!


My name is Francine and I am ready to become a Certified Public Accountant, now I just have to pass these CPA exams.

I work as an accountant for a small pharmaceutical company. I have my B.S. in Accounting and I always thought about whether I was going to go for the Master’s or the CPA license. I constantly went back and forth with this decision for quite some time.

I applied to 3 graduate schools and got accepted to all three. I took one class and decided that the Master's route was not for me. Kudos to those who have their Master’s degree.

I applied to become a CPA candidate and so far I have passed BEC. I was so excited when I checked my score and saw that I finally passed on the third try. I guess 3 times is the charm, because I took AUD twice so far and got a score of 70 on both exams.

I'm going to study even harder, work through the NINJA MCQ and re-write the NINJA Notes so that I can pass on the third try. I plan to re-take it in April.

Reading through the CPA Exam Forum and Another 71 Facebook page posts has really encouraged me to keep pushing myself and remain motivated. True failure would be giving up on something that I really want.

Giving up is not an option, because I know there are plenty of opportunities that await me when I pass the remaining 3 exams.

Good luck to all those that are taking the exam. Keep studying and stay focused on your goals!
