    Hi Hirav,

    Probably, these answers would help you.

    1. This is not one line answer. Go through various blogs on this forum.

    2. CPA is professional course, always plus for your career.

    3. Minimum understanding for grasping the fundamentals. Considering your CPA, this should not be a problem for you.

    4. Nobody can predict. However, you always have something new learn to survive in the market.

    All the best.

    • It does not really matter, as long as you have the right attitude to learn. Just learn as much as you can, please not much worry about whether it is support of implementation. Both have its own pressure points. Therefore, learning should be your main aim.
