Investing Blog Roundup: CPA Exam Update

Thanks to all of you who have been following along with my progress through the CPA exam. Last weekend, I received my score for the final portion of the exam.

I passed!

Now there are just a few administrative things to be done. If all goes smoothly, I’ll be able to call myself a CPA within a couple months.

    Congratulations, Mike…well done!

  5. Congrats – having done the CPA exam myself, I know the relief and elation you must feel. My next goal is the PFS – is that in your future?

  6. Awesome, Mike! Congratulations! 🙂

  7. Good news Mike. Congratulations.

  8. Thank you for the congratulations, everybody. 😀

    Karen, possibly at some point, but probably not any time soon. Too many other things have been put on hold in order to get through this one test, so I have plenty of “catching up” to do in many areas.

    Good luck to you though in your pursuit of the designation. 🙂

  9. Congratulations! 🙂

  10. Congratulations! I know you would nail it.

  11. Thank you, Petunia and TFB. 🙂
