Hello all, first time poster here.

Ten years ago I graduated with a BA in accounting. After two years, I made the decision to pursue a different line of work (pilot). Then 2020 happened, the pandemic put an end to that line of work, probably for a good amount of time. 

So now I'm looking to get back into accounting. Eight years of not thinking about accounting, however, is not helping my prospects. I need to refresh my knowledge and put a certification in my resume/link

The question I have is what kid of preparation I need to take this CPB exam. Do I need a more intensive review of my old textbooks, then purchase a study program and only then sit for the test. Or, should I just go ahead and purchase the program and see if that works out? 

I guess an easier way to put it is, how much knowledge/experience did you have prior to sitting for the exam? 

Thanks for any help!
