    I have a question about sitting for the CPA. I have been out of school for over 10 years and a CPA recently told me that my credits will no longer count towards the requirements to sit. Is this true? I live in Illinois if that matters. Thanks!

    Experience was the worst part of the journey for me. You?

    it depends on the coursework you took. it has nothing to do with a timeline. meaning out of school 1 year or 10 years can still sit if you took the required courses
