Out of school for 10 years – best CPA study materials?

  • Creator
  • #3303337

    I graduated 10 years ago. I’ve been working as a staff accountant since I graduated, but I’m rusty on quite a few things. What are the best study materials for someone that has been out of school for a while? I started watching Roger CPA videos, and I enjoy him. I used NINJA when I took the exam 5 years ago, but I was a new mom and didn’t have the time I needed to devote to studying. Stick with NINJA or switch to something different?

    Congrats on passing BEC.

    Nothing beats Ninja MCQs. If you were an accounting major and have been working in accounting FAR and AUD should not be so bad BUT you will have to study. REG may be a challenge for you. All are very doable. I was fresh out of school when I took exams and Ninja books and mcq’s supplemented with free YouTube videos (Alan Mursau, Roger, Miles) were enough. Jeff has added a lot of content to his offerings since I was studying. This forum and the dojo forum provide all the support you will need from others taking the exam.

    I think enjoying the process while working toward a goal that you know you want to achieve will make your success easier. I still miss studying.

    You can do this. Best of luck to you. Ninja will help. Good luck! 🍀

    If you want things to change you have to do something different.

    I graduated in 2015 and I have been using Surgent. Surgent doesn't get enough credit. I passed FAR and AUD on the first try.
