Dear NINJAs, I am currently studying Far using Wiley CPA and Ninja Book, Notes and MCQs. But the material is overwhelming in Wiley. I study 8 hours a day it’s taking me a long time to get through the lessons … It took me 3 weeks to get through 50 lessons in Wiley … Is there a different way of getting through this material quicker? Taking the exam supposedly in December of this year. -Ramona Dear Ramona, It's quite possible that you're getting too “in the weeds” while you study … taking notes over every little nuance … pausing the video after every few sentences because you're scared of missing a key detail. FAR is a mile wide and an inch deep. (Jeff says that someone smarter than him said that once but he can't remember who). Get through your videos, skim/read the NINJA Book, and at some point say

Dear NINJAs, I am really lost here, I hope you have some advice to guide me at least in some sort of direction. I am studying to RETAKE FAR – I got a 36 the first time around and I had studied for 3 months. I am now a month and a half in of studying the second time around. I watched lectures and took notes, and I just started doing MCQs today…. not so hot. I am getting an average of 40% and I have no clue what to do, as I listened to the lectures (Expensive Course) and took notes. I don't understand how I am not getting the material. I am 27 days out and I need some major help! – Sara Dear Sara, Sorry to hear about your struggles. Let's dive in and get you on the road to passing. When a CPA Candidate is struggling,

Dear NINJAs, I took FAR yesterday and it was a battle. Since it has been over 18 months since I passed Audit, I lost my passing score of 80. Yeah, I'm not bitter or anything. I passed using (Crazy-Expensive Course), but am now exclusively using NINJA products. For FAR, I read the Ninja Book cover to cover. I can almost quote, verbatim, the Ninja Audios because I've listened to them so many times. I watched Bob's videos on Ninja Plus (making tons of notes and documenting updated treatment for outdated item treatment, like Extraordinary Item presentation). I rewrote my Ninja Notes twice and read through my four legal pads of Bob video notes. Though I did not work as many MCQs and I wanted, I hit the areas where felt weak: Bonds, Leases, the big items. Anyway, I'm buying the NINJA Audit material from you. Should I both read the

Dear NINJAs, I am studying for my 5th attempt at Auditing. I received 71 my last go round. I am going to try the note re-writing concept you advocate. Do I re-write all 92 pages of the NINJA Notes at once and then again 4 more times or do I write one section 5 times then go to the next section? Thanks in advance, Tasha Dear Tasha, Re-writing your notes is an ancient NINJA study tactic. We NINJAs have been re-writing our CPA Exam notes since 71 B.C., except we had to do it on a stone tablet. You kids have it so easy these days. How to Re-Write Your NINJA Notes: First, we recommend reading the NINJA Notes as many times as possible between the time you get them and exam day. Let's say you're only into Chapter 2 of your Crazy-Expensive CPA Review Course (you'll be paying it

Dear NINJAs, 1) In your opinion, if using NINJA CPA Review, what is the recommended CPA Exam study time? 2) In the How to Study for the CPA Exam video you mentioned taking notes while reading the book. If I am constantly listening to the audio do I still need to take the notes? Thanks for creating this product! Lawrence Dear Lawrence, Your traditional CPA Review courses are going to take 7-8 weeks of studying per CPA Exam section. Thankfully, you're a NINJA and can shave about two weeks off of your study time due to the fact that: 1) NINJA Book is 50-75% lighter than other textbooks because it only contains content tested on the CPA Exam Example: FAR NINJA Book is 600-ish pages vs 1,200 for other CPA Review books. 2) The NINJA Study Framework saves you from working an extra 1,000-2,000 MCQs unnecessarily per exam. The NINJA
