How hard is the CPA exam? Really flippin’ hard. But it’s not the content or the volume of the material that makes it so difficult. It’s the relentless schedule. For 12-18 months you’ll be doing nothing but Work. Study. Sleep. Your social life will be nonexistent… and that’s truly the hard part.

Is it worth it? Unequivocally, yes. Passing the CPA will be one of the proudest moments of your life. Your career (and your wallet) will be more robust. And in the end your social circle may be smaller, but of higher quality.
