Tips for taking the CPA exam

The CPA exam may be difficult, but it's incredibly rewarding. Passing it gives accounting professionals the credentials to become trusted advisors, and one day, key business leaders. Accountants with the CPA certification often earn more than those who haven't taken or passed the exam. The CPA certification increases career options, and is often tied to a salary increase at an existing job.
