Disclaimer: This is not a best practice, but if you're under the gun, it can save your butt – and your 18 month credit that is expiring. I personally used this strategy to pass Auditing in less than three weeks. You wake up one sleepy Monday in August. June is a distant memory. July was a blur. In your groggy state, something begins to nag at you. August…? August…? What happens in August? Mental inventory: Car tag renewal … kids go back to school … … and then it hits you. “AHHHHHHHH – I have FAR in 20 days!!!” Your significant other pauses while brushing their teeth; tossing a weird look at you. You're slightly embarrassed, but not as embarrassed as the time you thought you could sprint to the end of the driveway in your underwear to grab the newspaper, only to find your retired neighbors from three doors

This is Part 2 of the “Working Mother's Guide to Surviving the CPA Exam“. I can't believe August is already here and my exam is on the 23rd. Regulation is definitely a challenge, despite my tax experience and having barely passed REG before. The little angel on my shoulder is telling me, “Don't take REG for granted. Remember what happened with BEC? Study every waking minute. This could be it”. The little devil on my other shoulder is saying, “You already know this stuff. You passed before. It will come back to you.” The torture is almost over. Here are more helpful hints that will get us through. 1. Allow yourself little splurges. I keep dark chocolate in my desk and am on a frozen coffee drink kick right now. Reward yourself for achieving your daily goals. I sound like a cheesy magazine article but it's true. 2.

NINJA CPA Review

Joe is a NINJA CPA blogger. Hello Ninjas, This will be my last blog entry as a NINJA CPA. I found out at the last score release that I passed both AUD and FAR to bring an end to my CPA exam journey. My journey with NINJA began about 4 years ago. After not having taken the exam for 7 or 8 years I was inspired by Jeff to get back into the game. I began my journey with FAR. After studying for about 3 months I took the exam only to receive a 74. Talk about a crushing blow. I swore off the CPA exam and swore that I was better off without it, that the difference between me and a CPA was their ability to pass a silly exam. Three years later I was given some incentive by my employer to get my license. Only difference this time

Dear NINJAs, I am stuck. I started my CPA Exam journey several (more than two) years ago. I started with (expensive course). I do not like their product. I like the study schedule that's created, but the program has since changed and I am having a hard time using their study schedule. Consequently, I have fully converted to Ninja. Unfortunately, when I am on a study roll, life happens. Well, long story short. I am at it again. I need a good study schedule, what are your suggestions for FAR.
