Ask the NINJAs: What does a ’74’ Mean?

Dear NINJAs,

What does a 74 really mean? – Juan



Dear Juan,

We NINJAs like 74 so much, we scored it twice on REG (74…74…92).

Here is a what a 74 means:

    1. You're close, but there are still a few conceptual holes in your study prep. If you think about which topic(s) you absolutely hated and prayed you wouldn't see on exam day – that's the first place to start.


    1. You're not one “point” away so you shouldn't just cram and get back in there. That 74? You took that exam almost 2 months ago. You're not a '74' today. Instead…


    1. Start over and replicate everything you did to score the 74 and then get medieval on your weak areas. You should strongly consider adding (marketing alert) supplementary CPA Review materials to get your score North of 75. (We're biased, so don't just take our word for it…).
