"All four sections: passed!  Thank you for running a great master's program in accounting that prepared me well for my career and the CPA exam. The CPA exam was not a big deal after graduating with the MSA. I was able to pass all four sections in one testing window with only a two week gap between sections. That means that most of the knowledge was already there from the semesters before!"
