    Inspire the next generation of CPAs
    ThisWayToCPA.org was created by the AICPA to be the new virtual vault of accounting wisdom for aspiring CPAs, more specifically, for college students and CPA exam candidates. Among the best features on the site are the CPA Exam Diaries, where freshly licensed CPAs get to tell their survival stories and give advice to those who are succeeding them. 

    The AICPA is looking to expand its CPA Exam Diaries. We can tell you more about them, but why not see for yourself? Check out the first three diaries and decide if you'd like to see your picture up on these pages.
