Becker CPA Review + NINJA

Larry says, “Jeff, I took the auditing exam “and am currently waiting for my results. “I wanted to seek your advice on how to use “the NINJA system along with Becker “to greatly improve my potential CPA exam pass rate. “I have invested countless amounts “of time and energy into the CPA exam “and would like nothing more to complete FAR this year. “So how do you use NINJA with Becker? “How do you use NINJA with any other course?” It really comes down to, do you want to use, well, there's three options. Use your main course and then supplement with NINJA. Use a few elements of your course and then use NINJA to pick up the slack, which is kind of like supplementing, but you're using more NINJA, like 50/50. Or, completely ditch your course and go 100% NINJA. So, if you're using Becker, well, you probably paid

Alisa writes in, “If my auditing score expires on April 30th can I take FAR on April 30th and keep the credit or does it have to be by April 29th? I'm really pushing it, I know, but living abroad does not provide much flexibility. Also I've listened to the NINJA Audio so many times that my brain, was like, oh yeah, let me just throw this question over to Jeff because we've talked about all this accounting stuff so many times now. So, anyway, thanks for the response, and a big thanks for Ninja. I recommend it to all my friends who are still torturing themselves paying for an expensive course and watching their videos. NINJA Audio and NINJA Plus have been a delight to listen to and watch, like really, who doesn't love Bob Monette? I've listened to him so many times I feel like ya'll are my

IRS Phone Scam
Video

– Hey, everyone. Well, I heard something interesting on the radio today, and it's that people are being scammed by someone calling from the IRS and claiming that there are police officers in their neighborhood and if they don't pay their, delinquent taxes that the cops are going to come pick them up. The IRS's alleged method of payment to settle your outstanding tax debts are none other than iTunes gift cards. So, anyway, wouldn't you know that a couple hours after I heard that, that I got a call. You need to call this number back now. This is very serious or whatever. So that's exactly what I'm going to do. So let's see what the IRS has to say. – [Man] Thank you for calling Internal Revenue Service. How can I help you? – Hi, um, I got a message about my taxes or something? – [Man] Yes,

This is from the CPA Exam Survival Guide, which is a free download to all Another71 readers. I know that right now is a miserable time and it is easy to start believing thoughts that simply are not true. Thoughts like you're not smart enough to pass, accounting isn't for you, the AICPA hates you and does not want you in the profession, etc. I personally felt all those emotions and had those thoughts going through my head as well. A few years removed from the exam process, I can tell you that being on the other side truly is worth it. My problem was always commitment to the exam. I wanted to be a CPA, but I didn't really want to be a CPA. (I had better things to do after a long day of public accounting like play Madden.) Picture yourself three years from now. Will this momentarily

When I was studying, my wife and I had three kids. A spouse can only take so much loneliness, so you need to make sure that you do your part. Here are some strategies to help keep it all together. If you’re married and studying, you absolutely cannot put your marriage
