    NINJA Question –

    We lost this thread in the forum conversion, so I’m piecing it back together via this Google Doc – which is cool because of the stat analyis.

    Doc Link:

    Going forward, people can post their score info here and we will update it with each score release (once we have this doc updated from the past…there were over 1,000 posts).

    Beginning with Tonight’s Score Release… (everything else has been archived)

    FAR actual: 79

    I only did about 1,000 questions because I was short on time, so take my trending score with a grain of salt.

    I took REG on 12/2:
    Actual: 81
    Trending: 71
    Overall: 65%
    1289 MCQ's completed

    I haven't been updating my scores as I go, but here is my AUD and BEC information:

    AUD (taken in July 2019):
    Actual: 80
    Trending: 71
    Overall: 70
    1219 MCQ's completed

    BEC (taken August 2019):
    Actual: 91
    Trending: 77
    Overall: 72
    1055 MCQ's completed

    I didn't save my FAR information, but I passed it in May with a 86. My trending and overall scores were comparable to my other tests, but this was before NINJA updated how it calculated its trending scores. I used Yaeger for my study materials and supplemented with NINJA. I read the entire Yaeger book and then hammered NINJA MCQ's. I supplemented with the NINJA study materials as needed. I highly recommend the Bob Monette's videos for FAR (Gov't and Pension especially) and AUD videos. I took the AICPA practice exams for each section a couple days before sitting for my tests. I heard a lot of people saw SIMS on their actual exams that were close to those in the practice exams. This never happened to me, but it was still good practice at working through the SIMS. I did a couple NINJA SIMS for FAR, but only focused on MCQ's for the other 3 sections.

    My experience with the exams was this: you have to put in the time and make the tests a priority if you want to pass them. I started studying in March 2019 and sat for my last section in December 2019. I am married, have a 4-year old, and was working full-time during this. I was also job searching and was able to get a new job in September. My wife and I had a baby in October. I don't say this to toot my own horn; I say this to make the point that we are all busy–some busier than others for sure–but you've got to prioritize the exams if you're going to pass.


    FAR Trending: 49%
    FAR Actual: 79%

    The NINJA Trending MCQ had me worried prior to the exam and made me think I was underprepared. Thankfully, it made me ramp up my studying and honestly, with the difficult questions could've been preparing me better. Only did about half the questions or maybe 1,000.

    AUD - 82
    BEC - 80
    FAR - 79
    REG - 75
