Didn’t know which bowl to post this in, but opinions on how difficult the enrolled agent exam is? How much did you study? Any recommendations for study materials?

I’m not a CPA and hoping having EA expands exit ops. I’ve been doing personal and corporate tax for 5 years.

My understanding is that the EA is for people who couldn't pass or are unwilling to take the CPA. It literally has a 70% pass rate so I think you'll be fine if you have that much tax experience.

Been wondering about this a lot lately. How do you know if you're on the right industry/career? I've been kind of unhappy where I at but I don't necessarily think it's because of the work.

After 3 years of ex. audit I found a "commercial" role which focuses on business partnering and forecasting (which I'm interested in), not to mention a nice salary bump.

A manager told me that it would be a bad career move, as I should be leaving for an accounting role out of audit before moving to something "commercial" to ensure I have experience doing month ends. He said that not having that would limit my career progression further down my career (CFO).

Is his statement true?
