Wiley CMA Review combines excellent technology and quality study materials in their user-friendly CMA review course.

Their CMAexcel course provides you with free electronic updates and comes with unlimited access until you pass so you never have to worry about them expiring or being outdated.

Wiley CMA is the only review course endorsed by the IMA. In fact, it replaced the previous IMA system, the CMALS.  Let’s review the pros and cons in more detail:

Wiley CMA Strengths

1. Multiple-Choice Questions in Textbooks

cma excelUnlike the other learning systems, Wiley CMA 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.

2. Packet 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.

3. Exam Simulation Close to the Real Thing

Their online exam simulation resembles to the actual exam giving the candidate an opportunity to get acclimated to the exam format.

4. Performance Tracking System

wiley cmaexcelIt includes a system that tracks your progress and helps you understand the areas that you are proficient in and the areas that need more attention.

5. Supplemental Information

With the purchase of the system, you also get exam tips, a glossary, and a bibliography.

6. In-Depth Content

The content is presented in an organized manner and is detailed enough for all levels of competency.

7. Exclusive 10% Discount

Wiley CMA has graciously extended an exclusive 10% discount to you, a member of the CMA Coach community. To redeem your discount, simply use the coupon code CMACOACH during checkout.

Wiley CMA Weaknesses

1. No Money-Back Guarantee

Among the top 5 CMA prep courses, only Gleim and CMA Exam Academy offer a money-back guarantee.

2. No 1-on-1 CMA Coach

Unlike CMA Exam Academy, Wiley does not offer a personal counselor, and unlike Hock, they don’t have a forum for additional support. But if you are convinced that Wiley is the best but would also like a personal counselor, check out CMA Exam Academy.

3. The Price Tag

The cost of Wiley’s review system is the most expensive costing $1,795. However, Wiley has offered an exclusive 10% discount to you, a member of the CMA Coach community.

4. Online Simulation Exam Limit

There’s a two-year limit from the date of purchase to access and use the exam simulation.

My Suggestion

Wiley CMA review course is fully backed by the IMA. Wiley also has been publishing review courses for the CPA exam for over 40  years. There’s something to be said about that.

For $1,795 (after the 10% discount), you get their entire set that includes the textbooks for both parts, the exam simulation for two year,  an interactive online self-study course, and supplemental guides and information.

The material is suitable for candidates who need a detailed review of the content in the exam and who need extra practice multiple-choice and essay questions.

Don’t forget to use coupon code CMACOACH during check out to redeem your exclusive 10% Discount.

    Hi Nathan,

    I have recently (Feb 2016) registered myself for the CMA! I need your help in deciding on which course material should I go for. My confusion is between Gleim vs Wiley.
    Please give your expert comments and suggestions on which should I buy.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Hi Nathan

    I have gone thru the above link and find info given very useful. Could you please confirm the text books provided with the review is from Wiley (as understood from the picture) for Premium CMA Coaching / CMA Exam Academy Review purchase or if it is a different brand.

    And please also let me know that since I reside in an international location, will I have to pay any import duties?
