I am very happy to report that as of March 7, 2012, I have passed all parts of the CPA exam. Halleluiah! Fortunately I only had to take each part (there are four) once, and passed each one the first time. It took me five months and countless billions of hours (well that's how it felt anyway) of studying, but I made it. Now I just have to get some more work experience under my belt to be able to receive my CPA license.
Finally I can get back to tatting!
