I’m not. Passed that thing years ago. Why on earth would I continue to study for it? During busy season no less?!

You passed it years ago yet you are still PwC 1?

“The CPA Exam?” I thought there were four CPA exams, when did that change?

Don’t you mean, when did “this” change?

I’m into street drugs, not that weak stuff from a real lab.

Back when I did it, I would come in early to study, study during lunch, and maximize study time on weekends as much as I could. Also try to take an easier one until busy season is over like BEC or AUD.

You don’t study during busy season. You made this choice knowing busy season was a thing so just wait until the spring
