Comment on Is a CPA Worth It? by Working Bee.
I think in your case, CPA is a tool to help to build up the credentials. CPA exam is just another exam. Try to get it completed with less cost and time. Some community college does offer cheap online accounting classes with credits, so you might want to explore that. I took my CPA exam over the course of 5 months. For me, it’s worth it since the company was paying for it. Two months later, I had a promotion but I believe it’s cuz my hard work, not because the CPA..:)
