Hello Fellow NINJAs!!!! This NINJA is extremely happy right now.
I just found out I passed FAR with an 80!!! My highest score yet!! With REG, AUD, and now FAR behind me Im planning on taking BEC down too!!
Everyone has been asking what my secret was on taking FAR down. Well theres really no secret, but Ill tell you my study strategy that took down FAR, and Im using the same strategy to take down BEC:
NINJA – As Jeff has always said.
I watched all the lecture videos and wrote crazy notes while watching the videos. So the N & I were covered in one step. Then onto second N Non-Stop Wiley MCQs. I really enjoy using the Wiley Testbank. I can be at any computer at anytime. I also downloaded the Wiley Testbank and Jeffs NINJA notes on my iPhone. So no matter where I was, if I had a spare moment I studied.
Then onto the J I rewrote all of Jeffs NINJA notes. At this point everything was A all coming together.
To add to the NINJA technique, I listened to the NINJA Audio every day to and from work. I drive 45 minutes to and from work every day, so that added another hour and a half to my studying every day.
I believe once you get yourself into a good routine and run with it, it all comes together. I have found that to be true with each of the exams I passed.
To those of you who passed, congratulations!! To those who didnt, dont give up. Ive been at this for 10 years now; and gave up from time to time in the first couple of years.
After tax season in 2008, I said Thats it!! Im going for it and Im never giving up until I get it!! Here I am now, ¾ of the way through this journey for the second time. This time I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Its beautiful and Im going for it!!
Come on lets get it together!!!
