Tori is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger.
I would like to start off this week by welcoming all the new NINJAs to Another71.com. Since becoming a NINJA myself, I feel like I cannot advocate for the NINJA method enough.
Even though I have only passed one section using NINJA, I feel like my rematch with REG is about to become the next victim. Plus, the section I passed was the first section I used the NINJA materials with.
I am in the final review stage of my review for this section. I decided to take a few extra days because I have discovered that I forgot some of the tax topics for corporate, and partnership taxation. I know that these are highly tested areas on the exam, so I do not want to leave anything to chance, especially when I have control of the situation.
I know that I will never be 100% ready for the exam, no one ever is. But I do have the benefit of time on my side. This section is on a new NTS, and even though I am definitely not lollygagging with my studies, I feel like I should be more than comfortable with these critical tax topics.
My study partner says that I am ready, and that I should just go in and take the exam. As much as I want to be done with regulation, I am afraid of missing the passing threshold again. I am grateful that he has such confidence in me. While I have a decent command of the materials, he had a far more intense understanding of all the details in the Wiley books, across all topics, and he just passed the passing threshold.
I know that no one really know how the exam is scored, and my exam experience and outcome will probably be based upon entirely different criteria than my study partner's were based upon. I just want to take a little more time, so that I can conquer REG, once and for all.
Until next week NINJAs, I am back to the new and improved Wiley MCQs. Have a great week studying. Once again, welcome to all the new NINJA bloggers!
