CMA Review Courses

Best CMA Review Courses Comparison

Top CMA Review Course ReviewThank you for checking out my comparison of the best CMA review courses: Gleim, Wiley, ExamMatrix, and Hock. I have personally tested, analyzed, and used these four major CMA review courses so you won’t have to! In an effort to provide you with the most honest and unbiased analysis possible, I have tested each of
these systems and have an in-depth understanding of their strengths and weaknesses. I have also asked CMA candidates who have used these review courses and incorporated their feedback in my analysis.


In a market where everyone claims to be the best, it is important to realize that there is no single review course that is “the best”. Each course caters to a different type of student so the most important thing is to find the one that best fits your learning style, budget and schedule.

Gleim CMA Review

Gleim CMA Review
OVERALL RATING ★★★★★
plusExam Simulation Close to the Real Thing: It’s very important to practice mock exams in the same format as it will be presented to you on exam day. Gleim does an excellent job at providing the candidate a simulation that very closely resembles the exam.
plusYour Own Personal Counselor: Gleim includes in its Gleim Online package a counselor that can help you with any questions that you may have. If you get stuck on a practice question in the simulation, the counselor is readily available to help you. This is a great feature for those of you who would prefer to have someone available to answer questions and offer guidance.
plusMoney-back Guarantee & Price of Textbooks: Gleim offers a money-back guarantee if you don’t pass the exam. For those of you who need that type of guarantee, you will only find that Gleim offers it. All other publishers don’t offer it. The cost of their textbooks is only $289.90 for both parts making Gleim the most affordable.
WEAKNESSES
noAccounting Background a Must: In order to make the most out of Gleim’s CMA review course, it’s important that you have a background in Accounting or Finance. Many candidates had to buy more resources to help them understand the concepts in the CMA.
noNo CMA Assumed Knowledge Guide: Gleim does not have a CMA assumed knowledge guide to help candidates understand concepts at a deeper level. A guide of this type is even more important for those candidate who don’t have a strong background in Accounting and Finance.

Wiley CMAexcel Review

CMA Review Course: hock vs gleim vs wiley
OVERALL RATING ★★★★★
plusQuestions in Textbooks: Unlike the other learning systems, Wiley includes over 175 multiple-choice questions and 53 retired essay questions in the textbooks. This is a great way to test your knowledge as you study without having to buy a test simulation bank right away.
plusPacket of Essay Questions: In addition to the essay questions that are included in the textbooks, the learning system also includes a packet of retired essay questions to continue practicing your comprehension and speed.
plusExam Simulation: Their online exam simulation resembles very closely to the actual exam giving the candidate an opportunity to get acclimated to the exam format.
WEAKNESSES
noCost: The cost of Wiley’s learning system is the most expensive costing $999 (after a 10% discount). Compared to Gleim and Hock, the system is a little more expensive. However, it is the only review system endorsed by the IMA.
noNo Money-Back Guarantee: Among Gleim, and Wiley, only Gleim offers a money-back guarantee.

Hock CMA Review

cma review courses
OVERALL RATING ★★★
plusFull Suite of Materials: Hock has the most extensive CMA learning system in the market, including live class recordings, video lessons taught by Bryan Hock himself, flashcards, exam simulations, assumed knowledge guide, and in-depth explanations of each topic covered in the exam.
plusTeacher Support: With the purchase of their material, you also get access to their Teacher Support hotline. Questions about the exam simulations and content on the textbooks are answered rather quickly.
plusHelpful Forum: Hock developed a forum for students to post questions about specific topics with the assurance that CMA professionals will answer them. This gives a candidate peace of mind knowing that the answers provided are correct. Overall a very helpful forum.
WEAKNESSES
noQuality of Audio Recording for Part 2: The quality of the audio lessons in Part 2 could improve. There is too much echo in the background making the sound somewhat aggravating.
noNo Personal Counselor: Hock does not provide candidates with a one-on-one personal counselor like other publishers do. However, Hock offers a teacher support forum to assist you with questions.

    thank you so match,

    • Hi Mohamed,

      Have you taken mock exams? That’s one of the best ways to familiarize yourself with the exam format and test your knowledge of the subject matter. Your exam is approaching, and I truly wish that you will pass on your first time.

    • Hi Mohamed,

      I was able to find free essay questions and answers online that you can use to practice. Please click on this link to get to the article. I hope this helps :)

  3. Khaled Abdelsalam says:

    Nathan , How are you ? I need your help . I Failed in cma part one exam in two attempts . i cant know the reason . i studied from hock text book and gliem cd test prep. im very slow in answering the essays topic….. i need any new retired ima question and any sources that help me to pass exam the next attemt…..
    thanks alot
    khaled / egypt

    • Hi Khaled,

      I’m so sorry to hear that you didn’t pass the exam twice. When candidates don’t pass, the IMA sends them a letter with a report card showing the areas they need to work on. Did you not get this letter? If you didn’t, I would ask you to contact the IMA and ask them for the letter for both times that you took the exam. It’s free by the way.

      I found retired essay questions online and would like to share them with you. Please click HERE and it’ll take you to the article. Keep me posted on your progress, and best of luck.

  4. hi nathan
    i need your help -i failed in my first attempt in part one at feb 2012 and i will get anther one in june 2013.they send me letter and my weakness in all parties but ethics is excellent.and essay is very bad . i studied from hock i reed the book and answer all questions in test prep from hock and gleim and i will practices on the essay questions and i will read the questions retired ..what should be i do and what you recommended me about the way of study and the way to exam to success..thanks

    • Hi Hany,

      I’m so sorry to hear that you did not pass the exam. Don’t lose hope. With a little more studying and practice, you will pass and earn the CMA credential. I’m here to help you along the way.

      One thing to consider when taking the mock exams is that at some point you’ll start running into the same questions over and over. By memory you will already know the answer, so you will pick the correct answer and think you know the material well. I say this because it happened to me and it’s a very easy trap to fall into. Have you run into this?

      A studying technique that I heavily used was SQ3R. I highly recommend it for you as it will help you remember at least 80% of what you study. Try to use it and let me know how it goes. Best of luck Hany!

  5. I have just started CMA and my plan is to attempt the exams in the month of Sep 2013. I want to study through MCQs with detail answer so please guide me which CMA course is better where I can see a lot of MCQs with detail answer (Gleim, Hock or Wiley)

    • Ali,

      All three have an extensive database of MCQs, but Hock and Wiley have in-depth explanations of each question.

  6. Hi Nathan,

    take one name, Gleim, Hock or Wiley in respect to pass exam

    Thanks.

    • Bakre,

      It really depends on the learning style of a candidate and their accounting background. But for me, if I had to pick, I would choose Gleim.

  7. Hello Mr. Nathan ,
    I am planning to appear in CMA exam in feb 2014. Is it fine to do preparation from home with hock review material without join any classroom training for CMA.

    Regards,
    Himanshu

    • Hi Himanshu,

      If you are more comfortable studying on your own, that’s totally fine. That’s what I did. I tried taking a class but it went so fast that I didn’t learn anything. When I studied on my own, I was able to actually learn.

      I would highly recommend that you purchase Gleim review course. You will get a personal counselor that can help you throughout your studies. It will come in handy when you have questions or feel stuck in a section.

  8. Hello Mr. Nathan,

    I m looking forward for CMA part 1 exam. I almost complete all practice Question of both Hock & Gleim. But still I m very nervous because this is my first international level exam. So please guide me any think more i need to do to pass exam in one attempt.

    • Hello Shaikh,

      If you are scoring at least 80% on your practices tests then I think you’ll do just fine. If you are not, focus on the weak areas to bring up your score.

  9. Hi Nathan,

    I’m having a hard time choosing between Gleim and Wiley. I’m leaning more towards Gleim, however, I’m not sure how strong of an accounting background is necessary to understand the material.

    Thank you!
    Maria

    • Maria,

      Gleim’s material is very extensive, and although you may not understand all the topics, they will assign a personal counselor to you that will help you along the way. I highly recommend Gleim.

  10. Hi Nathan,

    First of all, thanks for taking time to respond to all the queries.

    I am planning to take up CMA. I meed your suggestions and input for my preparation. I have not finalized when I would take up the exams, but would want to start my preparations ASAP.

    I am a working professional and need to make the best use of available time for my preparation. I am from India and want to know how to proceed with preparation.

    Should I take up the Gleim Review or Wiley review or IPFC in India providing CMA preparation course. Keeping in mind my geographical location, I want to know which is the most effective package.

    • Hi Kiran,

      Gleim has proven to be one of the most effective review courses regardless of where the candidate lives. I think you will do just fine with Gleim. Redeem a 10% discount by using this link.

  11. Hi Nathan
    I send you big thank for helping people to meet thier goal.
    I am accountant. I am planning to study cma. I have some concerns. I will be happy to help me.
    How can I start to study cma if I have some weak in accounting? What is the best way to pass cma from first time? What is the best source to pass cma?
    Best regards

    • Hello,

      You are very welcome. I’m very glad to help candidates pass the exam on their first try.

      Gleim is a very good review course. What is also great about it in your case is that they’ll assign a personal counselor with the purchase of the course. This means that if you have questions about any topic, you can reach out to them, and your counselor will help you understand it. Redeem a 10% discount if you are interested in purchasing this course.

      Practice mock questions until you score at least 80% or higher. Best of luck!

  12. Hi nathan, i am started my cma just 2 months ago i have just read ethics and internal controls hock , but after the detail learning of these sections i cant get the satisfactory resultbets , i cant understand what is asked in the question ………………… give me the guidence for better leaning or understanding of the text, so i attempt the questions in better way……….. Thanks usman

    • Usman,

      For questions specifically about the Hock material, I would advice you to reach out to them. They are in a better position to help you with it since they published it. The internal controls and ethics portion are text driven. How about studying sections with calculations first? That may help you get started on the right foot.

  13. Hi Nathan,
    I am a college Senior and wants to try out for the CMA in January February . I would like to attempt part one that time can i pass the exam with just by a review book and are they such think out there just a review book out there for me to study? I am pretty good in accounting my over all average for my major is A- If that is any help, in you making a suggestion on books. bytheway, i am trying not to spend money on a expensive review course because my first intention is the Cpa but a rep came by to my school and convince me to take the exam. thanks in advance any info will be helpful.

    • Hi Ornell,

      If you want to take the exam in the next testing window, I would advice you to go for February, not January. It’ll give you enough time to study.

      Since you are good in accounting, I would recommend Gleim for you. I think the content is a perfect fit to your skill level.

  14. hey nathan ,
    what is the best CMA course to study if i have already have a background of accountimg , business , economics . math and statistics ? is it hock , gleim or wiley ? i already have the hock course , and how long will it take to study the course and prepare for the exam ?
    thanks in advance

    • If you already have Hock, I would just go with that. Purchasing another review course will be unnecessary. But if you would still like to purchase a course, I would go with Gleim CMA.

  15. Don’t by ExamMatrix. Their material is so outdated except the format (becase the format CMA’s exam remains the same).

    Go Gleim or Wiley.

  16. Hi Nathan, I am planning to take my CMA very soon… The Questions is: Do I need to attend any courses for that or the self-study tools are just enough? Given that I did my bachelors in Management and Economics…

    Thanks,
    Abdulmuhsen

    • Hi Abdulmuhsen,

      How do you learn best? on your own or with an instructor? If the latter, I would recommend that you take a live class. If the former, a self-study course such as Gleim would be fine.

  17. hi Nathan
    which you recommend purchasing Gleim or Wiley new or used ?? Also which one of the two do you prefer.

    thank you

    • Hi Junior,

      Gleim is great if you have an accounting background. If you don’t have one, Wiley would be the choice.

  18. I’ve been considering taking the CMA exam. I was studying for the CPA exam but after careful consideration I feel CMA is more in line with my career goals. I’ve been reviewing the previous posts and was wondering if anyone has had success with finding employment with the CMA?
    Thanks in Advance.

    Hi Nathan

    I want to thank you for your advice to all requester and need your help to tell me
    the steps to study CMA , I finished my part 1 course but actually i don’t know the way of studding and which book I have to follow IMA or Gleim

  20. Dear Nathan,
    i am planning to do the cma. Can you give me some suggestion. i am planning to do the exam of part 1 & part 2 in May & june, i have also some experience & knowledge of accounting and finance.
    Is it possible to pass the exam in only one attempt ?, , which books and material is best for me? if i purchased the Gleim Review course which have total cost 698 $, it is sufficient for me to pass the exam of both part in the May & June attempt , if is study regularly 6 hour daily. can i also avail the guarantee package.

    Thanks

    • Saleem,

      Yes, it’s possible to pass the exam with one attempt. I did :)

      Gleim is a great course and will be enough to help you prepare for the exam.

  21. Dear Nathan.
    Hope you are doing well. It is nice to see you are sparing your time to answer the querries.
    In my case , I am an accountant in one of the reknown Big 4 . I appeared one time for CMA Part 1.
    I have attended the CMA tuition classes almost two month twice a week for 4 hours/session. I did well during my classess by preparing through Gleim and Ima material. But when I attended the exam I felt every thing new novel . Nothing were matching and in simple way I am not getting the concept or one can say i was not understanding the questions. I felt in later case might be my instructor did dealt knowledge with us which failed me to understand the question in center.

    Could you please let me know what is the reason I could not even understand . question were not looking in the way of gleim.

    REgards

    • Hi Khan,

      In your class, did you guys do mock exams? Going over the material is good for learning the concepts but it’s equally important to practice using retired MCQs. If you guys didn’t do mock exams, I would recommend that you purchase a test bank from Gleim or Wiley CMAexcel and practice until you score at least 80% in each section. If you purchase Wiley, use coupon code CM14C for a 10% discount.

  22. Hi Nathan,

    1/ I like Gleim review materials a lot but I am out of school for so long (over 10+ years) thus I think I need more in-dept explanation. I learn better than reading explanation. Do you think Wiley fits me better (English is not my first language)?

    2/ If I spend 21 hours a week to study & practice (seriously 3-hour study a day), how long do you think I am able to sit for a CMA part 1?

    Please advise. I appreciate it so much!

    • Hi Ctydream,

      The new Wiley CMAexcel course is really good and it comes with flashcards. If you need more in-depth explanations I would purchase that learning system. Use coupon code CM14C to receive a 10% discount.

      If you study 3 hours each day and score at least 80% in your practice exams, I think you could be ready in 3 months. But it all depends on how you study and your overall performance in the practice exams. Best of luck :)

  23. Hi Nathan,
    Thanks for your explanatory answers for the candidates questions, which intern helped me a lot in different scenario.
    I have recently registered myself with Morgan international for CMA course with class room training
    I would appreciate if you could suggest me for the following:
    1.Do you have any idea about this institute? as my induction is going to start this wed 26th Feb’14
    2.As you mentioned in one of your answer above that you have attended the classes but apparanty which doesn’t turn in satisfactory result, so you did a self study to complete. I felt taking class for the preparation of CMA, i have a gap of 7 years from the books; I have Bachelor in BBM + MBA. The content which has seen in the Part 1 and Part 2 which are more similar what I studied in past classes. What I felt is that if I attend the class room training we will be able to get many ideas from the tutor as how to attend each questions and techniques of answering. Do you suggest class room training is best for the candidate who is having a gap of 7 years from the study?

    Regards
    Javed

    • Javed,

      I’m not familiar with Morgan International’s program or effectiveness in preparing CMA candidates.

      As far as taking classes, I didn’t have a good experience. That’s why I didn’t pursue my CMA credential during that time until years later.

      Because you have a 7 year gap, perhaps a classroom setting may be quite helpful. You’ll have an instructor readily available and will help you understand the concepts in the exam.

      Let me know if you have any other questions.

      Nathan

  26. GARY JENKINS says:

    Hi Nathan,

    Is there anyway to find out tips for what may appear on the essay part of the May-June part 1 CMA exam?
    I’m ACCA and the tutors would always provide tips for the next exam sittings but i can’t find one website that advises students where to focus their essay studies on (these ACCA tips may be correct or wrong but at least its an educated guess as to where to focus your studies).

    Are the essay part of the exams random for each student or would say Budgeting appear on the essay part for all May – June exams and then say variances appear in the next sitting?

    Will the essays contain variances and budgeting and costing etc? or just focus mainly on area of the syllabus?

    Any advice you can give would be appreciated as I understand the syllabus quite well from my ACCA days but am trying to find more info on the exam and can’t seem to find any definitive information anywhere on IMA’s website.

    • Nathan Liao says:

      Hi Gary,

      Those are very good questions. Unfortunately, I’m in the dark as much as you are. The ICMA doesn’t publish anything related to the content that will appear on the exam on a per test window basis. That would help for sure.

      Assume that any topic can appear on the essay portion of the exam. To give you somewhat of an idea download the files found on this page and get a feel for the type of questions you may get asked.

      My advice to candidates is to know all topics at an expert level. That’s what I had to do and there were no surprises on exam day.

      Does this help?

  27. Hi Nathan,
    I am working professional with 6 years experience and done my MBA in finance. My part 1 exam is after 30 days. I have been preparing for myself from last two months with Wiley. I have read entire theory once and also completed questions from online question bank once. However I have noticed that most of the times, its taking more than 90 seconds to arrive at correct answer. Another most important thing is I have not spent any seperate time to prepare my self for essay questions till the date. I am thinking that if I prepare well for multiple type questions & spend enough time on reading theory, it will automatically help me to prepare myself for essay answers. Everyday I get 3 hours to study. What strategy you would like to suggest me to have best use of remaining 30 days to feel my self confident about exam.

    Regards,

    Jeet

    • Nathan Liao says:

      Jest,

      Make sure to practice mock exams more than once. Are you scoring at least 80%? Speed will come with practice. At first it’s OK to be slow. It’s normal. The more you practice, the faster you’ll become.

      If you know the content very well, it will definitely help you in the essay section. Having said that, I advice you to go through some sample essay questions to understand how they are structured.

  28. Thomas Kwak says:

    Hi Nathan,

    Many thanks for your kind advice.

    It really helps me compare CMA review courses.

    By the way, I live in Seoul, Korea and I passed CPA exam 4years ago. And now I am working in the accounting team in a korean comapny.

    If you were me, which course would like you choose?

    And as I am a foreigner, I feel nervous for the essay. If you have a good idea to prepare the essay, please let me know.

    Thank you and have a nice day!

    • Nathan Liao says:

      Hi Thomas,

      If I were you, I would probably go with Gleim given your CPA background. This learning system will provide you with enough information to successfully prepare for the exam, including the essay section.

  29. Can you give me tips in answering essay part?

  30. hello nathan,
    nathan i want to buy your study guide course, please tell me it will prove best for me to pass exams??? coz i want to appear in exam in this October?

    • Nathan Liao says:

      My Study Guide is a companion guide to a full review course. It provides the best exam tips and strategies, but by itself is not enough.

      Check out my CMA Exam Academy. I personally train CMA candidates to prepare and pass the exam on their first attempt.

  31. Hi Nathan,

    I am planning to self-study for CMA exam .I have electrical Engineering degree.,no Accounting degree ,.I am not intending to take training ,just self study,?
    what is the best course for me and is it enough alone ?

    • Nathan Liao says:

      Anas,

      Because you will need in-depth materials, I recommend Wiley CMAexcel. Their system is great for candidates with little to no accounting background as it covers all topics in detail. Use this link and get a 10% discount when entering Wiley coupon code CM14C.

      • many thanks Nathan,

        what about about hock , from what I read it is good for my case -with no accounting degree -and it is cheaper.
        please your feedback on this,if I can use it instead of wiley.

  32. Jennifer says:

    Hi,

    I am planning to enroll for CMA but needed a bit more clarity on whether it is better to enroll with a local vendor who provides classroom training along with the study material , exam prep papers etc or should I be better off ordering Wiley/Gleim for self study?

    Please let me know which is better and which course is better in terms of quality and price.

    Your feedback will help me alot! Thanks in advance.

    • Nathan Liao says:

      Hi Jennifer,

      Do you learn better with an instructor or on your own? That’s the most important question to ask yourself.

      If you prefer to learn with an instructor, then taking a class will be a better fit. But be weary of classes that last for only 1 to 2 months. Those are too short in my opinion. To adequately prepare for the CMA exam, the minimum is 3 months. How long are the classes you are considering taking?

      If you prefer to self-study and look for quality and price, Gleim is the way to go. An even more affordable alternative is Fast Forward Academy. They are worth checking out. Feel free to email me directly if you have more questions. I’d be glad to help :) nathan at cmacoach.com

  33. Hi Nathan
    I couldn’t get through CMA multiple choice question in two attempts (Part-1), I understood, I am not succeeding to understand the questions properly. what is your suggestion to me to pass the CMA exam
    Thank you

    • Nathan Liao says:

      Biju,

      Are you self-studying or have you taken a live course? If you are self-studying and have not found success, I would recommend that you go to an instructor-led course to help you through the content. Check out CMA Exam Academy.

  34. continuation to my previous mail, My English language is average ,how can I overcome this problem

  35. many thanks Nathan,
    what about about hock , from what I read it is good for my case -with no accounting degree -and it is cheaper.
    please your feedback on this,if I can use it instead of wiley.

  36. Nathan,
    I have been using the Hock review, and in all fairness to them, have not been able to put the time in studying due to working full time. The last thing I feel like doing after work or even on the weekend is studying. Am I kidding myself thinking I can actually pass the CMA with little or no time to study for it ? I just took part 2 of the exam last Friday, 100 MC questions in 180 minutes. You barely have enough time to read some of the problem questions let alone spent time working on it. I know people pass all the time, however I feel the time alotted is not enough on average to fairly pass the exam. I am curious as to your thoughts.
    Thanks. Barry

    • Nathan Liao says:

      Hi Barry

      To pass the CMA exam, it’s key to spend at least 2 to 3 hours each day studying. It’s a very rigorous exam.

      TO be able to tackle the MCQ section in the exam, I would recommend that you spend a good amount of time taking mock exams. Don’t worry about speed in the beginning. That’ll come naturally. Focus on answering questions to the best of your ability. Once you get a score above 80%, then start to work on speed. It’s totally doable but it’ll require practice and commitment.

      Nathan

  37. Amy Hale says:

    Hi Nathan,

    What review do you think is best for me? I have a degree in Accounting, a CPA, and work as a Controller so I am heavy on the accounting side. However, I have been out of school for 17 years and haven’t taken a test since! I learn best on my own and money is not a problem as my employer will most likely cover the costs. Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated!

      Gleim came to mind right away as I read your question. Their course is well suited for candidates with a good accounting background like you do. If I were you, that’d be my choice :)

      Let me know if you have any other questions. I’m always glad to help :)

  38. Well, I am having very hard time to choose between Wiley abd Gleim. I am giving myself just two months to prepare for both part. I KNOW…. that’s pretty ambitious, but that is not really my concern now. Both wiley and Gleim look interesting, but which one is actually best for me to reach my goal. I learn faster and better when I practice and I don’t reading too much. I like going straight to the point, get some understanding, then practice and master. With that said about me, which of the two books will be the most helpful.
    Note: I have basic knowledge of accounting and finance.
    Thank you in advance for your help to decide.

      Hi Bignon,

      It definitely is ambitious but at the end of the day it’s a decision each one needs to make.

      Regarding your question, I think the course that would fit you best is ExamMatrix or Fast Forward Academy. Both have adaptive learning test banks that challenge you based on your weak areas.

      If you are looking to mainly practice and not read much, I would go for either one of them. Both are excellent choices for what you are trying to accomplish.
