Gunyung writes in. Hope I pronounced that correctly. Hey Jeff I was very impressed with NINJA CPA Review material. He actually said that. As an introduction, I'm a foreigner who came to the states about five years ago for college. And now I'm working for one of the Big Four accounting firms. I bought my super-expensive CPA Review materials, sponsored by my firm, when I was in college but I didn't happen to study. Only for BEC but received this 74 before the new CPA exam came out. then since I'm in tax, I wanted to start studying for regulation and while I was studying I found out there was an expiration date for using my super-expensive software. Now I'm trying to find another way to pass it and my bet will probably be on you. I apologize for a long introduction. So I just wanted to ask if the

Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. NINJA's… I took REG on July 1st and it was the first time with the new testing format. Hence, I struggled with time management and how much time to leave for the sims. I walked out tired and exhausted – and kind of annoyed and angry. I ran a couple errands before heading home to my small town so I wouldn't have road rage on Interstate 29. I also contemplated a road beer and my odds of getting pulled over … but I can't bring myself to break the law. I have no idea how I did and now I have to wait until the middle of September to find out. I spent the afternoon in the hot, South Dakota summer pulling Quack grass in frustration. Visited my Grandma-in-law and she said “it looks like you need a beer” when I walked in. Why

CPA Reviewed #81 – CPA Exam Task-Based Simulation Time Management Oren – I took Audit in May, and I don't think I did well. My score with REG is expiring on July 21st. I just found out that I will not receive the AUD score until August 16th! If I do not pass, I won't be able to take Audit again before REG expires. Will they extend my REG score? Thanks for your insight. Nelly – Is the NINJA Audio the same as NINJA Notes? I'm am taking audit in 6 days, I have the notes but I am deciding whether or not to purchase the audio. Is it the same as the notes but spoken out loud? Amanda – Do you have any insight on the new format of the FAR sims — three different sections rather than just one? I am worried about not knowing the entire picture

Joe is a NINJA CPA blogger. I sat for AUD this morning. I wish I could tell you that it went great, but I usually leave with the same feeling of not knowing how I did each time I leave one of these exams. I thought I failed BEC (scored 80). I thought I did not do so well on REG (scored 85). So I’ll just say that it was very hard and I hope I passed. This was my first exam under the new format and I did notice substantial difference in my methods of taking the exam. I have been practicing taking 35 NINJA MCQ in one sitting for about a month now. I did this in order to train my brain to prepare for the exam and it seemed to work out very well. By practicing 35 questions at a time I was able to efficiently and

Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. One day to testing again!…. I am feeling somewhat confident. I have passed REG before. Even on the first try! However, with so many failures under my ninja belt (see what I did there), I still doubt myself. You can see that I am exhausted from the anxiety and stress and my body has been running in overdrive mode…However, there is hope that I get to: 1. See the new format in its glorious appearance and, 2. Pass REG again How am I doing from a knowledge standpoint? I have been scoring in the high 70's with the NINJA MCQ and I have been retaining a lot of the material. What am I doing the night before? I am making my cheat sheet that I use to memorize right before I get out of the car and walk into Prometric. Then I quickly regurgitate

NINJA CPA Review

Joe is a NINJA CPA blogger. I recently hired a candidate for a Staff Accountant role that was open for about a month. There was a good mix of candidates, some from public accounting, others from the private sector, as well as a few internal candidates. We hired an internal candidate that had been working in the cash applications function. I work for a Fortune 500 company with a relatively large accounting organization, and while there is usually a good amount of turnover, competition is extremely high for open roles. To land a job at a great company, sometimes it is worth exploring accounting career options besides the traditional route into the accounting group. For example, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Cash Applications, Credit and Collections, and Temp Work are all great ways to get in the door of a great organization. If you have the proper degree to work within an accounting department
