Loving My New Job + Becoming Confident with REG

01 Nov 2013


Ben is a NINJA CPA Blogger.


I have been at my current job for three months and I have identified 2 things I love about it. First, when people ask me where I work I can pause and look them in the eye and say “I work at a race track, how about you?” I love it!

I don’t have to tell them that I am an accountant to get the response that I want. Seriously I love accounting and my job there, but how many times in my life will I have a job where I can say that I work at a racetrack? Not too many.

The second thing I love is that my work is 15 min from my home. This means I can get off work, get home for dinner, and study longer than before. My previous jobs had me commuting around an hour. While this leaves time for the NINJA Audio, I find getting home sooner for studying an awesome benefit.

I have been studying really hard for Regulation and I am starting to feel really confident in the questions I attempt. It seems to help that I am constantly trying to review my notes this time as I do MCQ’s and attempt to stuff as much information in my brain as possible.

I feel like the only thing that could trip me up are the sims and so I am doing MCQ’s as well as studying my notes so that I can be truly ready. I mean a simulation is like a really detailed and involved MCQ, right? If I know the material they shouldn’t trip me up too bad … that’s the hope anyways.

I have my test in 9 days and so I better get cracking. I will take REG, take a few days off and then to tackle AUD for January. But, to beat REG first. Good luck in your studies and may the force be with you!
