I just found out I passed my last section of the CPA Exam. What do I do once I have passed? In my state, I need the ethics exam. Do you know which study material is recommended? -Brian
Well done, sir. CPA Exam candidates seem to be lost in this regard.
“I passed … now what?”
Do: Find out if your state uses the AICPA Ethics course or if they have their own.
Don't: Procrastinate. You're not done yet. There will never be a better time to sit down and waste 3-4 hours of your life than the present. You already killed your social life for 8 months…what's a few more hours?
Do: Get the CD version of the ethics course. You can use the “search” function.
Don't: Get the book.
Do: Go to your state board of accountancy and download the paperwork to get your certificate/license.
Don't: Wait for your state to send it to you.
Do: Spend the extra $$ on a nice frame for your CPA certificate.
Don't: Expect your CPA certificate to be the quality it deserves. Join the AICPA if you want a nice certificate.
