“I tried to follow the 4-week CPA study plan laid out with the Ninja materials because the amount of material is pretty overwhelming, so following a guide seemed very appealing.”

John Crosby, Elijah Watt Sells Award Winner

How to Study 20 Hours a week with No Fridays or Weekends

Want to Study for the CPA Exam 20 Hours a week, relax on Friday night, take the weekend off, and not be completely miserable in the process?

That's right – no studying Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.

The NINJA Study Planner's “E.L.L. Plan” is How you do it.

1. Set your coffee maker up the night before so that the only thing you have to do at 5 am is hit a button. This is critical.

2. Study 1 hour before work. Stay off all social media and distractions. Otherwise, what's the point?

3. Listen to the NINJA Audio for 30 minutes during your commute.

4. Study at lunch for 45 minutes.

5. Study after work for 30 minutes before leaving.

6. Listen to the NINJA Audio for 30 minutes on the way home.

7. Study before bed for 1 hour and 45 minutes from 9:15-11 pm. If you have kids, this allows you to focus completely on them from the time you get home until they go to bed.

Total Study Time: 5 hours a day

Repeat Monday – Thursday.

Total Study Time: 20 hours per week.

No Friday Nights or Weekends.

Repeat. Pass. (Finally) Become a CPA.

The NINJA Study Planner comes with two study modes (4 weeks and 7 weeks).

If you're under the gun, then the 4-week CPA study plan will help you to study fast, but not too fast.

Most CPA candidates will want to use the 7-week study plan, which we normally recommend.

If you're looking for a Becker CPA Study Plan or have Wiley CPA, Roger CPA, etc., the NINJA Study Planner will work for you.

“I really liked how NINJA provided me with a study framework that was specific to my study situation and how the study framework was detailed and provided me with not only the strategy to pass but the tactics to pass. Other CPA review courses provide the strategy, but NINJA provides both the strategy and the tactics to tackle the CPA exam.” – Stacie V.

“I  got my score back on REG  – I scored an 89 (Thank you Ninja!) – I don’t think I would have scored as high without using the detailed information that Ninja MCQs provide.  I found the data Ninja provided to be superior to (expensive course). I am a huge fan of the Ninja framework!” – Suzanne G.

“Your NINJA method took me from a 71 to an  82 today on my REG retake. THANK YOU!!!” – Donovan T.

“I just wanted to say Thank You, love your program, failed FAR in the 2nd qtr, started using your program in the 3rd qtr and passed FAR and REG, using the ELL study method along with the Ninja Framework. Rewriting my MCQ notes and your Ninja notes was critical.” – Tommy C.

“For my FAR rematch I decided to switch exclusively to NINJA. I have been reading the NINJA book and NINJA Notes and enjoy how much more straightforward they are compared to the other CPA courses textbooks. I’ve been applying the NINJA framework and using the ELL method and I am enjoying how efficient my studying is becoming and feel I am learning better.” – Rafael F.

“I was so stoked that ninja’s method helped me get FAR out of the way first and not have to dread it.  ” – Josh C.

“I’m done! After going 2 for 8 using a different study method, I went 2 for 2 (81 in BEC and 80 in REG) within three months after switching to give the Ninja method a try. It worked for me.” – Mario S.

“I couldn't of done it without the Ninja method! Thank you so much for your time and dedication to helping so many people pass the CPA exam!” – Gabe F.

“I have been studying for REG using your study planner and your materials, and I like them better than (expensive course).” – Deon T. 

“Also – I  got my score back on REG  – I scored an 89 ( Thank you, Ninja!) – I am a huge fan of the Ninja framework!” – Suzanne G.

“After my boost from passing FAR, I continued to apply the NINJA framework in 2021 and passed AUD (78 – March 2021), BEC (93 – July 2021), and REG (87 – Dec 2021) each on the first attempt.” – Sarah H.
