Hello.
Go to school and study hard.

Definitely, plenty of them.

You enjoy detail, accuracy, and tasks that others may find mind numbing.

I live in Canada.

You are welcome. :-D

Hello, I don't know the CPA requirements in every state, but I can tell you the requirements for New Mexico (and I know that our requirements our on par with most of the country).
To be able to sit for the CPA exam you must have the following: * A Bachelor's degree in Accounting from an accredited college or university. * 30 credit hours of accounting courses (including auditing and upto 3 credit hours of accounting or business law) * 150 credit hours of courses (only the 30 credits hours of accounting courses are specific, the remaining 120 credit hours can be in anything)
To get your CPA you must pass the exam (which is one of the most difficult of any professional certifications and is even considered to be more difficult than the BAR exam) and you must be supervised by a CPA for a period of one year.
Hope this helps.

In Minnesota, if I recall rightly, you need:
1) 150 credit hours of college, including 2) 24 credits of upper level or graduate accounting courses, and 3) 24 credits of business courses that don't include the above. 4) A year of public accounting experience.
Plus the exam.
I don't think Minnesota actually requires a degree, but it requires enough credits that you may as well get one.

I am not suggesting Gleim, since I've never used them. But they do have a nice summary by state: http://www.gleim.com/accounting/cpa/requirements.php?PHPSESSID 58c997b176f4b02fac0492e40f2d73&
