  4. how much time is require to get registration for sep and oct window ……. from now?
    please reply me as soon as possible

  5. Dear Nathan,

    Following are the few features I can guarantee about Wiley CmaExcel and CMA Exam academy.

    Wiley CMAExcel Features:

    1- Wiley CMAExcel is officially approved by the IMA, Hence It is much more closer to the actual course that IMA outlines even in terms of writing style.
    2- Wiley CMAExcel comes with exam/testing window, that is much more closer to the real IMA exam which makes much you more confident when you take the actual examination.
    3- The number of practice questions are lower than other products which saves times and makes me focus on particularly the most important topics.

    CMA Exam Academy Features:

    1- The guarantee of passing out the exam if followed the instructions well, is a huge burst of confidence, I have been thinking of starting CMA since a long time, but its only the week to week brief study plan that made me get more confident and serious about CMA.
    2- The few videos I have seen, were easier for a person like me who is not fresh in accounting anymore and not a native english speaker. I was able to understand the concepts well, without having the need to go look at other videos to understand the concepts.
    3- The constant updates on the CMA study plan is very helpful, I recently got an email about the 2015 plan, that explains the revised 2015 cma exam, its very helpful, indeed.

  6. Wiley CMAExcel Features:

    2- Wiley CMAExcel comes with exam/testing window, which is much more closer to the real IMA exam.

  7. From my internet research about the CMA study System providers :

    WILEY CMA :
    1- Provides the most resembling exam interface.
    2- Provides the largest amount of MCQs than any other provider.
    3- Provides More Practice Essay Questions than any other provider, Unlike, Gleim “Based on my last experience of Part 1 in 2012 ” it provided only one Essay Question at the end of each study unit.

    CMA Exam Academy :
    1- Unlimited Access Guarantee is a real good feature.
    2-Free Shipping.
    3- Providing a Personal Counselor , which overcomes this missing feature in Wiley CMA.

    Thanks !

  20. Hi Nathan,
    Thanks for your opportunity. Actually, I just decided to study CMA two months ago after considering many courses. After that, I looked for some materials to start with CMA including Wiley, Gleim, Hook and Exammatrix.
    Honestly, I don’t believe in people who say their study materials are the absolute best, because different courses suits candidates with different background and learning style. Initially, I am very confused with many choices to pick up the best material for me.
    Luckily, I give some advice from my colleague who passed the part 1 of CMA in June 2014 in Viet Nam and he suggests me to use Wiley CMA Review for self-study. Also, I try the free trial version of Wiley and some features that I like the most:

    – The format of online exam is much closer to the real IMA exam which gives you more confident and chance when you take the actual examination.
    Regarding the CMA exam academy, there are some features make me interesting course the most:
    – Good study plan: the program was organized logically and comprehensively with solid plan to keep track appropriately.
    – Good Explanation: this course with the experienced lecturers to help the candidate understand a concept, the notes and questions are comprehensive enough.
