Case Competition + Up Too Early for FAR

Ben is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger.

Hello everyone!

This week has been an interesting one. I have been really busy trying to wrap up my undergrad at UMKC.

We found out recently that my school was ranked 5th in the nation for students passing the CPA exam for medium sized schools. Not too shabby! I was way stoked to hear this.

I also competed, for needed extra credit in one of my classes, in a case competition. This made things a little crazy for a while because we only had a week or two to prepare and we had to present facts on a case on the Under Armor company and suggest strategy implementation for their future growth.

It was a great opportunity and my team took 1st place!

So, with all that has been going on this has been a hard week to find time to study. I have still been trying to take advantage of the NINJA Audio, and that has been great.

I have also been trying to take advantage of waking up early to put in some study time. Although I must say that the first day I did that was the longest day of my life! I think I woke up too early. I was trying to put in 2 hours of study in the morning and I think I need to focus on 1-1 ½ hours in the morning instead. I think this will help me to make it through the day and still able to put an hour or two in at night.

Anyways, I will sign off for now. This week has been an eye opener and I will need to re-vamp my study adherence so I can be ready to take FAR in July!
