It happened: You failed the CPA Exam. On the bright side … You’re normal. It happens to one out of every two people who walk into a Prometric Testing Center. The statistics, however, don’t change the fact that it’s one of the loneliest feelings in the world, because let’s be real: Your friends and family, while sympathetic and supportive, simply don’t get it. 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 […]


Do you ever feel like no one close to you “gets” how hard it is to study for the CPA Exam? Have you ever dreaded telling a boss/spouse/father/nosy co-worker that you failed yet again? Are you sick and tired of the CPA Exam and ready to either pass this thing or quit? If you answered “YES” to any of these, then My Story may resonate with you. Family & Background My name is Jeff Elliott and I am married with nine children. (Yes – we get weird looks in restaurants – and Wal-Mart). I passed the CPA Exam when I was 30 and had three kids at home at the time: Two kids under the age of 5 and a newborn baby. I know what it’s like to study for the CPA Exam while trying to balance… …a full-time job… …a marriage… …a family… …church commitments… …a mortgage… …little league… […]

cpa exam working mother

Working mothers are in a category all their own when it comes to passing the CPA exam. We not only strive to balance work and family, but when you throw the CPA Exam in the mix, you’re going down a road only few can fathom. We are the rock of the family. We provide financial support, comfort, nutrition, stability, refereeing, homework checks, matching socks, boo-boo kisses, clean toilets, chauffeur service, etc. We give everything our absolute all and no one notices when we skip a beat because we are that good. That’s why it was so difficult for me to accept I could not reach my unattainable level of perfection while I tried to pass the CPA exam. Something had to give. For instance, I had a semi-decorated house at Christmas and at another time, I was 3 points shy of passing this exam. Being successful at it all is […]

Dear CPA Candidate, As you’re reading this today, you likely find yourself in one of two camps: Camp #1: You’re ditching your CPA Review course (maybe it expired, or maybe you’re just simply “over” it) and going a different route. Camp #2: You have a full CPA Review course and want to supplement it with different materials. The average CPA Candidate fails at least two sections (per NASBA), so it’s a safe assumption that the majority of CPA Exam takers are somewhat frustrated with: 1. Their expensive CPA Review course 2. Their study habits …or a mix of both. This post, while somewhat long, (stick with it) will solve both of these problems for you – even if you never spend a penny on NINJA Materials. This methodology works with ANY CPA Review Course (and it has a 10 year track record to prove it). I get these questions all […]

Matt writes in, “I’m using NINJA as a supplement with Becker CPA Review. I’m feeling overwhelmed with the amount of material. I’m feeling like I don’t have enough time to do all of the MCQ for each and it is stressing me out. I have read another Send Me One Of Your Tips but I don’t if you would give me any useful advice or what may work the best.” Okay, you’re using NINJA as a supplement with Becker CPA Review, so I would watch all of your Becker lecture videos and take notes, work all of the questions in their software, and then I would switch over to NINJA for the J, just rewrite it. I would rewrite the NINJA notes. And for your review, I would watch the NINJA PLUS videos over your week topics. And I would, in your NINJA MCQ, I would start working the software […]
