Re: Attorney considering CPCU- thoughts?

Definitely go for it! Especially since the CPCU 530 is one of the more difficult exams. You'll have no problem crushing the CPCU 520 if you're already used to the exam format. I actually work with a lawyer right now, he was a prosecutor for a couple years and now he's a happy homeowners analyst!
