Hi, I am new here. I am trying to determine what courses I need to take to prepare for the CPA exam. I have an MBA from a long time ago and lots of (non-accounting) business experience. To be able to sit for the exam in California I need an additional fifteen semester units in finance and accounting. My plan is to take six quarter-unit courses, then take the Becker review course to fill in the gaps. Does this approach make sense, and what courses should I take? I am thinking: intermediate accounting I, intermediate accounting II, advanced accounting, corporate tax, auditing and attestation, and financial statement analysis. I am planning to do this at one of the University of California extension programs.
Thanks for any suggestions.
