Debating about two job offers... Job 1: 63k Job 2: 61k + 3k sign on bonus + 1200 for cpa exam costs! (Both offer the bonus) I was much more ‘attracted’ to job 2 during my interviewing, the benefits are not great (typical public accounting) but regardless I’m not sure the benefits should matter that much. Would it be dumb to take job 2? I was doing a salary analysis with an assumed 6% annually and after 2 years I’ll be even with the additional 4200. But I’m sure with promotion I can renegotiate!

Does anyone here learn best through repetitious exercises? I always used repetition and practice to solidify knowledge in college and while studying for the CPA exam, but I can’t find a way to make that work since I’ve started working full time. As a result, my technical knowledge is not up to par. I think it’s mainly because the learning format is listening to a very long presentation or lecture, but then there isn’t any follow up or practice, so I just end up forgetting what I learned. Cont.

Just passed my last CPA exam and will be getting a bonus in my next paycheck. I’d like to buy myself something nice, but I’m having a hard time thinking of what. I don’t wear a lot of jewelry. My hobby is photography, but I upgraded to a better lens recently and don’t really need anything else that I can think of, though I’m open to suggestions. Curious to know what other people did with the bonus. (Aside from paying off debt, which is where a portion of it is definitely going.)

For those that have completed their CPA exams and are working, would you say working is harder or the cpa exam is harder? Or is the only reason why the cpa exam is hard is because of working while taking cpa exams?

Is Accounting even a major that students are attracted to anymore? I’m helping for recruiting and we barely had any students show up for recruiting to a school where I went and the line for big 4 was wrapped around the wall. It makes sense if Going to school for accounting + extra credits to get to 150, lower starting salary, more hours during busy season, and have to pass the hard CPA exam. Doesn’t sound attractive to me.

Hi all! I just wanted to share my experience with the CPA exam and how I prepped in hope that it helps some of you. I just found out that I passed my last exam yesterday and I’m now in the process of applying for licensure. I took REG and passed with a 75 about two years ago now. I also took the other 3 around the same time and failed all of them. I tried to fit them all into a semester but that wasn’t realistic for me. Fast forward a year later after I got out of PA and went into industry cont.

New York folks: Are you aware of the CPA exam credit extension to 2021 for NY CPA candidates impacted by COVID19? It’s on a person-by-person basis and you need to request the extension.

The extension would really help me, but I’m not sure what more to tell them in my email than the fact that I couldn’t sit for the exams this Spring/Summer due to test centers closing in NYC.
