If you mean not everyone has determination, commitment, and motivation... I agree

Everyone needs a different amount of time to feel prepared and be successful on each exam. Don't worry about others' timelines. Never apologize for doing what is best for you. In the end, four passing scores are all that matters.

I completed all 4 sections of the cpa exam in 2 1/2 months during busy season. Don't make excuses and just do it

So you're quiting? That's something I'm considering cause my damn partner and managers won't let me take sabbatical to study for the CPA.

I quit because they took back the approval for me to take time off to study (not Deloitte).

Nah there was this dude I worked with, there was no way he was going to pass. He was very determined, committed, and motivated. But he just couldn't pass. He wound up getting laid off least year

I have children so have less time to study & work. Hoping I find a good fit in my next job. I am worried about bills & healthcare but hoping I can scrape by for a few months.

I have 4 kids too OP. It's definitely a sacrifice and no walk in the park, but definitely doable if you are fully committed to getting it done.

Everyone is different. I know people that pass these exams in 4 months and people that passed in 2 years. Find out what works best for you and do it.

Let's just say that the work environment was highly toxic and it was time to leave rather than be pushed.

How long of a break

As long as it takes...will still job search in the meantime...

True we all have our strengths and weaknesses. We can't all be superstars like Trump, but with a little skill and a lot of will it is amazing the things we can accomplish.

Ps not a troll. I wish I was. But it's my real life. 😐

My friend started recently at a small environmental consulting firm and noticed on the SharePoint activity page a payroll excel sheet. She opened it to realize it was an ADP export with everyones salary. Turns out theres no access controls and HR+Accounting folders are open to the company. After opening it, she realized that the activity page now shows that she opened it. Can she be in any trouble since its not her fault theres no access control? Should she tell HR that she opened it?
