Studying for the CPA exam is slowly killing my soul; however, an occasional White Stripes song mixed in, during studying, helps to dull the pain.

I think it's great experience and you learn a lot in a short amount of time, but long term it starts to take its toll. It's hard not having a life six months out of the year. My advice would be to have an exit plan because if you end up hating it you have something to look forward to and if you don't then you have a backup plan. Just set boundaries for yourself, don't let people take advantage of you, get your CPA, and go from there!

I really appreciate. Thanks.

Do you like it all? Are the benefits worth the cost? I appreciate the insight!
