Roger CPA Review + NINJA: 5 Steps to Smash Any CPA Exam
“We’re happy to once again partner with Jeff Elliott and NINJA CPA Review to help you pass the CPA Exam even faster.” – Roger CPA Review
Roger has an energetic and old-school teaching style that CPA Candidates like.
NINJA CPA Review is the most-popular CPA Exam Review Supplement on the market.
This is a ninja-quick look at how to add NINJA CPA to Roger CPA and Finally Become a CPA.

Step 1. Nail the Concepts
If something is confusing in your Roger CPA materials, look it up in the NINJA Book or NINJA Notes.
Start listening to your NINJA Audio. Never drive to work without it on. You can listen to fun things when you're a CPA. Let that motivate you. 🙂
If your commute is 1 hour round trip, then that's 1 hour of NINJA Audio per day (and that's for the commute alone … if you can work and listen to the NINJA Audio: even better.)
Start reading the NINJA Notes in your downtime, especially at work. It's ok if you haven't studied the section before. It will all start clicking the third time through, regardless of where you are in your prep.
Check out our fully-detailed breakdown of the N.I.N.J.A. Method.
Step 2. Intense Notes
First Time? Retake? 15th Retake? It doesn't matter. Take Intense Notes while watching your Roger CPA lectures.
Step 3. Non-Stop MCQ
If this is your first time taking this exam, then do Non-Stop MCQ with your Roger CPA Test Bank, and then in the review phase (A – All Comes Together), then you switch to NINJA MCQ and work backward, beginning with your weakest topic.
If this is a retake OR you've found yourself memorizing your Roger questions, then switch 100% over to NINJA MCQ for this phase. When it comes time to do the SIMS, switch back and forth according to which software you like better.
Again … if this is your first time taking this exam, use your Roger CPA questions for N (Non-Stop MCQ) and use NINJA MCQ for A (All Comes Together) as you review.
If this is your first time taking this exam and you're memorizing the test bank questions (which is really bad because it causes false confidence … you're scoring in the 90s, but on exam day, you score a 65 and can't figure out why), then switch over to NINJA MCQ 100% for both (N) and (A).
SIMS – First time or retake alike: switch back and forth between your Roger test bank and NINJA MCQ.
Take NINJA MCQ for a Test Drive. No Login Required.
Step 4. Just Rewrite
We know you took killer notes over your Roger lectures … re-write those 😀
If taking notes just wasn't in the cards this time around, and you did the best you could do, then we suggested re-write the NINJA Notes.
Step 5. All Comes Together
If you're using your Roger Test Bank in the Non-Stop MCQ phase, this is where you switch over to NINJA MCQ (if you've already switched, then keep using it here as well).
Start with your weakest topics first and work backward. You can let the software feed you questions, but since you're in a final review phase, I recommend doing topic-specific mini-testlets and really drill down.
Do a set of 20 over your weakest area. If you're weak in several areas, then choose the one that keeps you awake at night first.
The one you DREAD seeing on exam day.
If you are hitting in the low-70s (70-75), then move on to your next weakest area.
The reason why you don't go for mastery here is that you have a lot of ground to cover in a short amount of time for your review. It's better to get all of the topics into the 70s and then come back and hit them again vs. get a few into the 80s/90s and run out of time before you can get to the rest.
For instance, if you're taking Financial Accounting and Reporting and your weak area is Bonds, then do 20-question mini-testlets until you're scoring in the 70s (which may take 3 or 4 sets) and then move onto your next-weakest area, which might be Leases. Repeat this with Leases, and then move on to the next one – which might be Governmental Accounting, etc.
As you head into your exam – hammer MCQ and read the NINJA Notes every spare millisecond you have.
(Note – if you have 5 minutes to spare – DON'T spend it on Facebook…knock out two pages of NINJA Notes instead).
Everywhere you go – car, gym, sitting at your desk at work, it's NINJA Audio, NINJA Audio, and … you guessed it NINJA Audio.
(I get it – the content is boring, and my voice won't be confused with Morgan Freeman anytime soon but hit Play anyway. You can listen to your Spotify Playlist of 90s Pop Hits AFTER your exam).
NINJA MCQ … NINJA Notes … NINJA Audio on repeat…even up to the minute you leave your vehicle and head into Prometric (what if the extra 3 minutes of some nuance of Corporate Taxation was the difference between a 74 and a 75 on exam day?).
THEN … walk through those Prometric doors with confidence, barf out all of that knowledge in your head, and go sleep for 3 days.
You've earned it.

Roger CPA Review + NINJA Reviews
Olga Timirgalieva (Roger CPA Review + NINJA)
Elijah Watt Sells Award Winner
“NINJA MCQ – A must! Solving through all of the MCQ, understanding solutions, and adding new information nuggets to your notes — absolutely critical. With the NINJA Notes, I printed out the notes and used them as a knowledge check closer to the exam. Information is high-level, so you can quickly run through and get a comfort level on what you should go back to review in detail. NINJA Audio is nice to use during the commute or if you are an auditory learner. The Audio MCQ is nice to keep you engaged.”
“Why We Chose It (Runner-Up, Best Overall Course): Even though Roger CPA review doesn't have as large of a question bank as some of the other courses on this list, the engaging lectures will give you fun ways to remember challenging topics. Roger CPA Review is great for students who typically have trouble focusing during lectures and are also looking for a more affordable option. Why We Chose It (Best Price): Ninja CPA Review works nicely as an inexpensive supplement to an online course. This is an efficient studying tool that can be used as your main course but serves best as an auxiliary study aid with an excellent online support community.” – Investopedia, 5 Best CPA Prep Courses of 2022
“GREAT! I got an 84 on FAR!! NINJA Notes and audio were invaluable! Copied all the notes and listened to the audio and the video replays a ton! I used Roger CPA Review for the videos and mcqs (I found all the categories for mcq on ninja more intimidating so stuck with Roger for that).” – Kayley L.
“I found out I passed my final CPA exam with this latest score release. It is a huge relief, and I can definitely attribute part of my success to NINJA's MCQs. They really helped me nail the concepts and become familiar with the types of questions I could expect to see on the exam. Overall, I think using NINJA as a supplement to Roger cpa review was the perfect combo for me. Thanks again!” – Laura L.
“After my 2nd attempt, I had already gone through every study question that Roger CPA Review had to offer and listened to the lectures so much I was tuning them out. So I tried out a month of ninja. I listened to your lectures and blitz one or two times a day all the way through and did hundreds of questions that were fresh. Third time is the charm because I got a 78!” – Alisha P.
“78 for REG! first attempt. Supplementing Roger CPA Review with Ninja and I am so happy I did! The sparring replays saved me for this exam.” – Fay V.
“I use Roger CPA Review and supplement with your MCQs. I have to say, without your NINJA questions I probably would not have passed any exam. It took me 3 tries to pass AUD and on the last try I bought your monthly subscription and it has made all the difference. Could not pass without you.” – Chris M.
” After failing my first exam with a 64, I bought NINJA and have passed 3 so far with the Roger CPA review + NINJA combo.” – Marisa A.
“As a side note, I discovered Ninja through the CPA subreddit about halfway through my testing journey and really loved being able to use the question bank as a supplement to my main software, Roger CPA Review. I have already recommended it as an add-on to many of my coworkers when asked how I managed to take all four exams in such quick succession! So I did want to make sure to express my gratitude for the product, as it was a huge help on the FAR and REG exams. If there is any sort of survey I can fill out I'd be more than happy to do so.” – Briana B.
“Hi Jeff, I recently failed AUD by 3 points. I used a combination of Roger cpa review and ninja and actually increased my score by 11 points from last time by using this combined approach.” – Wil S.
“Roger is great and your NINJA material as a supplement is perfect!” – Mohammed H.
“Hello Jeff – I have used your NINJA study guide for Audit and FAR, great work, you're the man. I just passed my CPA on August 25th. After seeing this email I had to respond to you. I legit got excited and the adrenaline is pumping through my body. This is the ideal partnership if I have ever heard of one. Roger CPA Review has the best lectures in my opinion and it is not even close. They are extremely concise and taught in a way that is very easy to understand. Roger also brings unfound energy for a hard/boring subject. He also uses the whiteboard which makes it easier to see calculation and for what exactly is going on.” – Maxx L.
“I used NINJA as a FAR boost when I had done all of the Roger CPA review questions (some more than once). I took the FAR exam … and scored an 86. I've recommended your products to my co-workers, including my HR department. I will likely use your products for REG as well.” – Gary S.
“I passed, brother. Thanks to NINJA and Roger CPA review. I actually got a 92 on REG. I was blown away. I will recommend your site to anybody I encounter that is taking the exam.” – Chad F.
“I've passed BEC, FAR, AUD, and took REG…I heavily used Ninja during my studying to supplement my Roger cpa review course.” – Olivia K.
“Been using your ninja mcq platform and just used the roger cpa review book. I just got notification today and I passed AUD and BEC section taken within a week of each other!” – Jonathan H.
“Thanks for helping me pass! The Ninja notes were great to use together with Roger!” – Peter L.
