Well, I started in my late 50's and now the big 60 rolled over. I had my CMA but figured this is a great way to refresh, since a lot has changed in both the GAAP and tax worlds in the past 20 years or so.
I had to take a few masters courses online to meet the current exam requirements – sort of a waste; I'd rather match some classes to the exam sections while I'm studying.
I use Gleim. I used them on the CMA and kicked ass then – somewhere in a box I have a high-score award. I am happy with them for the CPA as well. 2 for 2 so far. Memory naturally isn't what it was when you were an undergrad, but put the time and repetition in and you'll get there.

Accounting is a great profession to be in career and money wise no matter what age you are.
Not 50 here, bur I can tell you that if I didn't decide to take an pass the CPA exams years ago I would have a dead end career working in retail with Shitty pay. Now I have a great job with full benefits while working remotely.
The skills you obtain really opens up a lot of doors.
Plus this market is really hot as accountants are really being sought after all the time.
