NINJA CPA Review: Best Price…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: Best 5 CPA Review Courses of 2021


“Few people are more familiar with the stresses of exam prep than Jeff Elliott, licensed CPA and the face behind Another71.com. ” – Wiley Efficient Learning


“Back by popular demand, we’re happy to once again partner with Jeff Elliott and NINJA CPA Review to help you pass the CPA Exam even faster.” – UWorld Roger CPA Review


“I personally used NINJA when I studied for the CPA Exam (in addition to Becker). Back then, NINJA was only a supplement, whereas now, it’s a full course. However, the NINJA notes are still as concise and helpful now as they were when I sat for the CPA Exam. In my opinion, there’s no better way to quickly solidly all the topics covered in the AICPA’s CSOs than NINJA notes. And if you’re unhappy with your NINJA products, you’ll receive a no-questions-asked refund. ” – Stephanie Ng, CPA – iPass The CPA Exam


“The highlight of the program is absolutely the brand new test bank that Jeff and his team put together.” – Bryan Kesler, CPA – CPA Exam Guide


“The original Ninja Notes are popular for a reason. Elliott was juggling a career and a growing family when he studied for the CPA exam himself, and he knew that time is a precious commodity for many busy students. His notes summarize the most important information and serve as a good review right before an exam. The notes explain difficult concepts in a straightforward, succinct way. Available as a hard copy or downloadable as a PDF file for iPhone or iPad, these well-organized notes get consistently positive reviews from customers who have passed the CPA exam.” – Bryce Welker, CPA – Crush the CPA Exam


“The Ninja MCQ test bank is a professional exam simulator and software platform. It does a really good job of emulating the real AICPA interface on the CPA exam. If you get used to the way this one looks, you’ll feel at home on exam day.” – Kenneth W. Boyd – CPA Exam For Dummies


NINJA MCQ – A must! With the NINJA Notes, I printed out the notes and used them as a knowledge check closer to the exam. NINJA Audio is nice to use during the commute or if you are an auditory learner.” – Olga Timirgalieva – Elijah Watt Sells Award Winner


“I would say the NINJA MCQ were essential to my success.” – Matt Durette – Elijah Watt Sells Award Winner


“I used the NINJA Notes to summarize my notes and eliminate topics that aren’t tested heavily. I owe it to the NINJA Community. You have been my rock, and I hope to contribute the way you contributed to my success.” – Shulem Rosenbaum – Elijah Watt Sells Award Winner


“After taking three exams I was in reach of the EWS award. I knew that I needed a high score on my last exam to get it, so I decided to use ninja MCQs and practice tests to supplement my other study materials. The questions and practice tests were extremely useful, they helped me find some weak spots I didn’t even know I had and gave me the extra practice I needed to get my best score of any of the exams.” Brian Wright – Elijah Watt Sells Award Winner

“Hi, Jeff- I’m not a member of your forum but I’m a certified troll since a coworker told me about it earlier in the year. I just wanted to let you know about your poll that I passed! VA 485 81 (That’s a 14 point increase over my previous score!). I purchased your notes in hopes of “doing everything humanly possible” to pass the exam and they did more than help.

I am up to 90%s on the MC.” – Kyle


Love the notes and audio – listen to it every day while i get ready for work.” – Kelly B.


“I truly believe you are helping me pass these exams. I took BEC last evening. When I got out of the exam, I received my passing FAR score, which I took on 7/2. I got a perfect score of 75. The only thing I did differently was listening to your voice non-stop…Thank you for what you are doing, you are amazing!” – Liz

“The BLaw always got me because I wasn’t taught UCC in school. I had to learn it on my own. Louisiana doesn’t use it. We use the Napoleonic code. Jeff Elliott does the BEST job of explaining it in my opinion. The 84 stands on its own as proof that. The only thing I did differently was to get the NINJA audio.” – Kricket

“I ordered the FAR Audio Monday and am 1/3 of the way through. I think this is the answer – much of what you have said is exactly what I get stuck on. I’ve used Bisk and Roger audio, but yours is down and dirty. Sure, it’s like drinking from a fire hose but I swear this is going to work this time. THANK YOU” – Christen


“I just wanted to let you know that the Audio you have and the notes for REG are soooo good! Becker has worked for me for the 2 parts I’ve taken, but I find it’s so verbose and not as easy to grasp for REG. Your NINJA notes and audio make things easier to understand.” – AJ


Passed AUD with an 80 (15 pts higher) – NINJA Audio!” – Chris S.


“Jeff, I passed the BEC section and I bet I did about 1/3 less studying on this exam than I did on any of the others. I made a lower score (86) compared to the other exams, but I attribute my success and more efficient studying to your ninja audio for that section.” – WS


“Hi Jeff, I passed BEC thanks to your audio notes with an 81. They helped me process information in a different way that swung my score almost 20 points.” – Juan R.


Perfect for work and in the car. Compliment the ninja notes really well.” – Zafar

“I read your whole story and as a new mom, working full time in a private firm and juggling life in general, I just want to say thank you for creating NINJA. I enjoy listening to the audio and I even printed the FAR book, went to FedEx, and had it bound so nights I don’t feel like looking at a screen, I can flip through the pages. So far, it’s been a great experience, and hope I have the same success as you! Thank you! I really appreciate all the work you have put into this while making it affordable. All the best and God Bless!” – Magda R.

“Just found out I passed! (REG) So I’m done and couldn’t be happier.” – Kara H.


“I passed all parts of the CPA exams in May. I am now a fully licensed CPA. I used Ninja for FAR, AUD, and BEC as a supplement. It would have worked as a main review too, but I already purchased Wiley when I found out about Ninja. I always recommended that CPA candidates should subscribe to Ninja at least as a supplement for $67/month as ROI is very high. I found Ninja’s MCQs, SIMs, audio and sparring lessons, and notes very useful. I used to listen to your audio so much so that I was having withdrawal feelings for the first month after I passed all the parts. I would like to thank you, your team, especially Ninja Mike for his sparring lessons and notes. You guys rock!” – Khin S.


“Thanks to being a Ninja I finally passed all 4 parts of the exam. Your study tips sent on the timeline were extremely beneficial. Once I stuck to that I started passing! (or getting the dreaded 74, and retaking quickly to pass).” – Carly W.


“I used NINJA CPA to pass all 4 exam portions on the first try within 12 months while working a FT and a PT job. I thank you for creating a study curriculum that fits my style. I appreciate it.” – Tony O


“Jeff, You do not know me, but I know you. I found CPA Ninja in 2019 when I was down on my luck looking for someone without a monotone voice to keep me interested in the CPA exam. I had no passes on 3 attempts, and I was getting ready to quit. I jumped in head first, using the Ninja Audio EVERY single time I was in the car, to the point that my wife would sleep when we drove so that she didn’t have to listen to CPA prep. Here I stand, with my last exam passed as of last night, (and my subscription now canceled) and I just wanted to say thank you. I come from a mid-sized firm with a ton of accountants who are not motivated and looking for a different way to study. Without a doubt, I will be sending them your way in the near future.” – Erik W.


“I loved using Ninja the month before my FAR exam (just found out I passed with a 94 last night!!) and plan on using it the last month before my exam for all of the other exams.” – Alex Z.


I love the NINJA MCQs and SIMs, and that’s one of my reasons(MCQs & SIMs, Notes, Audios and etc.) to subscribe to NINJA.” – Jason B.


“I love NINJA, I failed audit twice with (expensive course) and passed with NINJA the third time. I passed BEC using NINJA only, didn’t make the mark for FAR, and now I am studying for REG before I restest FAR. Love the NINJA audio and notes, and the added humor with Jeff at 7 am car rides.” – Wil S.


“I find NINJA very useful as a time management organizer especially with the accelerated plan.” – Brian


“Thank you for helping me pass FAR Exam!!! Your CPA review is amazing!” – Kate


“You have created an amazing site of study materials and your dedication to your students is amazing. Thank you for creating Ninja. This was truly a wonderful community to be a part of! On days that I felt the lowest after failing, I could turn to the forums and groups for encouragement and advice. All the material is incredible and truly helped me through this journey. So thank you Jeff!!” – Ankita


“I just finished my CPAs and I cannot recommend ninja enough. Took me 4 tries to pass AUD. After the third try I started supplementing Becker with NINJA and passed. For FAR and BEC, I used becker to read through the materials then solely relied on NINJA. For REG, I only used NINJA. If anyone is struggling I highly recommend to switch and it’s only $67 a month.” – r/CPA reddit
