    1. Hi Alia,

      My understanding is that the India CMA is only recognized in India. The US CMA is recognized globally.

  1. Hey sir, i am doing ACCA right now, i have a few questions, will it boost my career options even more? And what professional papers should i take that allign more with CMA? And suppose i dont like part 1 Of CMA but Part 2 was enjoyable, can i filter out jobs that are more in related to contents in part 2? Thank you

    1. Hi Khalid,

      ACCA would give you a solid foundation in accounting principles and is useful for audits and tax practices. With the CMA, on the other hand, you’ll have the skill set to make financial decisions for a company and hold management accounting or executive positions. CMAs tend to have higher salaries.
      Another advantage of the CMA is that it’s a globally recognized certification, while the ACCA is mostly recognized in the UK and commonwealth countries.

      I compare those certifications in the blog posts below:
      https://www.cmacoach.com/acca-vs-cma/

      The IMA offers all members the jobs.imanet.org platform where they can find and apply for jobs that are the best match for their skills.

    2. Hi Sir , I am Monisha
      Currently studying MBA
      Wanted to attend 1st group intermediate CMA India exam ,, is this platform also for CMA India?

  2. Hi Nathan,

    I’m currently back in school to fulfill the required accounting education credits to sit for the CPA exam. I’m thinking long term here — is there any benefit to obtaining a CPA license first, working public accounting for a few years, then obtaining a CMA later on when I decide to work for a private company? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks so much!

  3. Heyy, i’m going to join cma course. Im not sure regarding my interest in studying the course but i can work hard.Should i pursue with cma?

    1. Hi Aysha,

      My suggestion is to go for the designation that suits your career goals best.

      If you’d like to work in management accounting, then the CMA is a great certification to help you achieve that goal.

      Have a look at the following article to learn more about this certification and the steps to obtaining it: What Is a CMA? The Facts About Certified Management Accounting

      My goal at CMA Exam Academy is to help everyone pass their exam the first time.

      If you have any other questions, please let me know.

  4. Hi,
    I’m doing CMA US along with BBA.
    Now i am in 2nd yr. I joined CMA in First year.
    Is it compulsory that complete CMA in 3 year.
    Our tutor doesn’t even complete Part 1 and 2 .
    Can i prepare along with BBA. Please suggest a solution. In which month I can attend exams.

    1. Hi Ansiya,

      It’s best to focus on the CMA during your last year in college, not before.

      According to the CMA Handbook: “If both exam parts are not successfully completed within three years of entering the certification program, any passed part will expire, and the CMA entrance fee will have to be repaid.”

      The best way I can help you pass the exams is via my 16-Week Accelerator Program.

  8. Hi sir,
    I have done 10+2 from the arts stream in 2013 & I did not complete my graduation, but I have completed diploma in accounts & tally & now also working as an accounts assistant. can I do CMA without complete graduation?

    1. Hi Ridhima,

      The CMA certification requires you to have a bachelor’s degree that comes from a regionally accredited or Distancing Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC) accredited university or college.

      Please note that you can submit the educational requirement to IMA either prior to taking the exam or no later than 7 years after passing both parts of the CMA exam.

      Hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

    1. Hi Goutham,

      It is possible to study for the CMA exam while doing your bachelor’s degree.

      It’s best to focus on the CMA during your last year in college, not before. The exams are hard, and since you have to pass the 2 parts within 3 years from the enrollment date, it’s best to make sure you’ll have enough time to focus on the CMA.

    I have a plan to give part 2 exam in February 2021 but I m not confident enough for the exam..i m getting on an average 75% in Wiley test bank..but 85 to 90 was my target..is this Wiley test bank enough to practice to clear the exam in first attempt ?

    1. Hi Niladri,

      My recommendation to you is to go back to the textbook and review the topics that are tripping you up when you practice on MCQs.

      You may also reach out directly to Wiley to advise you on how to best utilize their study tools to guarantee your exam success 🙂

    I am an a economic graduate, I feel that this major is useless . Is that true ??

    1. Hi Dharmenda,

      The best way to assess your exam readiness is through practice exams. If your test bank offers exam simulations, I recommend practicing on them until you consistently score 86% or above on them. That’s when you’ll know you’re ready for your real exam.

      Good luck!

  42. Sir
    I have attempted one time but unfortunately I couldn’t score well…and I’m totally confused what should I study and wr I have to focus..

    1. Hi Anumol,

      What study materials do you currently have?

      Would you be interested to enroll in my coaching course so I can guide you step-by-step to your exam success?

      Thank you,
      Nathan

    And 1 more thing is syllabus going to be changed by next year?
    I have appreared for Inter CA from Indian Institute of Chartered accountant and cleared 1st group.
    So how much will that help me to clear CMA exams?

    1. Keep an eye out for my daily emails. You’ll be getting my 3-part video training on how to become a CMA. It’s totally free 😉

  47. Hello sir,
    I am viswanathan from India. I am planning to write my cma exam in September October window. I would be in internship for may and June (free on Saturday and Sunday). And from July I would majorly be free from Wednesday to Monday(classes only 2 hours) can you please suggest me a study plan. My dad is suggesting Wiley while i more inclined towards a book which would give more questions in relevance to exam mode. Can you please reply soon sir. I would like to start preparing from may 3rd 2019.
    Yours thankfully,
    Viswanathan

    1. Hi Vis, it’s best to use a review course to study for the exam. Textbooks alone are not enough. Click here to compare all the courses and choose the one that best fits your needs. Thanks, Nathan

  48. Hi Nathan,

    I had enrolled for the CMA course more than a year ago. But I never really got the time to study. How do I start ?? Also, Do you reckon I wait until 2020 as the syllabus is changing.

    1. Hello Rama,

      I’m going to share with you a study plan in my free video series. You’ll get an email very soon. Please keep an eye out for it. If you follow it, it’ll be a good start.

      The exam will change in 2020. I think there’s still time to study for at least one part this year. There’s no need to wait until 2020 especially since you have study material already.

      1. HELLO SIR
        I HAVE COMPLETED MY +2 AND I DECIDED TO TAKE CMA.
        COACHING IS ALSO COMPLETED.
        I WANT GIVE MY FIRST ATTEMPT IN JUNE BUT I’M AFRAID OF PROMOTION TO ESSAY QUESTIONS.I WANT TO QUALIFY IN MY FIRST ATTEMPT.I NEED YOUR SUGGESTIONS FOR THIS

        1. Hi Mokshitha,

          Now that you’ve completed your coaching, you can spend the remaining time practicing on mock exams and reviewing the more difficult concepts. Practicing on exam simulations before your exam is a great way to assess your knowledge and identify the topics that you need to improve on.

          I’ve emailed you several training videos which contain more exam prep strategies and tips. Make sure to check them out as well 🙂

  49. Halo sir ,I have written my CMA final group 3 last attempt and awaiting for results…and going to attend final group 4 in June 2019 ..help me sharing the study plan..

    I am 20years old boy !!
    I have selected CMA as my career. I am going to attend the intermediate group 1 papers in this December. I am in the initial stage of preparing for my exam. After seeing my syllabus I got feared and how could I pass this in first attempt. So please guide me sir !!

    1. Hi Mohankumar,

      Since you mentioned the intermediate group, I believe you’re preparing for the Indian CMA certification. Unfortunately, I currently coach only for the US CMA exams. I’m sorry I can’t help you…

      Wish you best of luck on your exams!

    1. Hi Sreenidhi,

      I’ve included a weekly study plan for each part in this study guide. It’s also packed with valuable strategies and tips to help you prepare for the exam more efficiently.

      Let me know if you need anything else.

  52. Sir I’m planning to take cma usa part 1 exam on October… Plz give me the plan and advice to pass the exam at the first try….

    1. Hi Binoy,

      My advice is to practice a lot on mock exams and aim to score above 85% on each section AND on the full mock exam. This will be a good indicator that you’re prepared for the exam.

      Also, make sure that you fully understand the logic behind each answer; and don’t forget to practice on your speed and memorize all formulas to be able to recall them quickly, so you can comfortably answer to all 100 MCQs within the allotted 3 hours on your exam day.

      IF you feel you need more help with your CMA exam preparation, please consider enrolling in our coaching course.

      Good luck!

  53. Hi sir,
    I am a student from India and currently pursuing degree first year BBA. Sir, I am so eager to be a cma but firstly I need to finish my degree. Though I have 3 years to get to cma I would like to start the preparation iself know, so I can simply pass the exam after my degree. So it would be a immense pleasure if I can know that where should I start and what kind of preparation should I start now.

    1. Hi Mohammed,

      You can actually take the exam even if you haven’t completed your degree yet. As a student, you’ll get substantial discounts on your exam fees and the IMA membership. As for the education and experience requirement, you can fulfill them within 7 years after passing the exam.

      The knowledge you’ll gain while studying for the exam will help you land a good job and will get into management accounting faster.

      To learn more about the steps you need to take to become a CMA, check the CMA exam roadmap here.

      And to get more familiar with the exam content before diving into full study mode by enrolling in a CMA review course, I recommend you to order the textbook for part 1 on promotion here and read through it in the meantime.

      Hope this helps! Let me know if you need anything else 🙂

  54. Hi,
    I’m doing my degree 2nd year and planning to do CMA with my 3rd year. Please tell me about the book I should refer to study CMA so I can write my CMA exams next year.

  55. Sir ,

    I joined CMA and i decided to attempt 1’st exam in september and i am so worried about the exam. Sir i need your help to pass the CMA in 1’st attempt . I want to know the essay type question it eassy or difficult please tell me

    1. Hey Jishnudas – I know the exam may seem scary and the anxiety may even interfere with your ability to study and memorize new formulas and concepts. But I encourage you to try to adopt a positive attitude – it’s the key to keeping you motivated to study when you know that you CAN do this and you WILL pass the exam. Make a study plan and divide it into small steps that you feel you can complete – following it will make you feel more confident and by the time you complete it, you’ll feel prepared for your exam and ready to crush it.

      If you feel you need more help with your studies, consider enrolling in a coaching course.

      As for the essays, the difficulty may vary: some candidates get really easy essay questions, while others may get complex essay questions that require a lot of calculations. If you don’t have a test bank, I recommend you to acquire one to help you become more familiar with the exam format and practice on retired CMA exam multiple-choice questions and essay questions. It’s a super important study tool!

      If you have any other questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

      And remember to stay positive. You got this! 🙂

  56. Sir I will give CMA foundation exam on June 2016 syllabus .sir is there any trick or how to study ,so i could clear foundation in 1st attempt

  57. Dear Nathan,

    This is a great job as this really really helpful for the students who really want be clear with what they are doing.

    your answers are to the point as well as very clear.

    Im currently working in QATAR and going to start CMA US. but I have a small confusion as why you recommend only the US CMA.

    1.) Lot of countries have their own CMA and it helps only withing their countries. and why only US CMA has this wide recognition in the world..?
    2.) What are exemption i will get in ACCA , If i complete CMA US.?

    Your answer would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Hi Charith,

      CMA US is the gold standard in Management accounting, it is highly respected and recognized by businesses and organizations in most countries and even in the countries that have their own CMA certification.

      Passing the CMA exam will exempt you from the following papers:
      F1 Accountant in Business
      F2 Management Accounting
      F3 Financial Accounting

      Cheers!

  58. hi…
    i am planning to attend the cma exam in may. portions are completed for both parts.but now am confused about which part i should take first?

    1. Hi Shahid,

      It’s best to take first the part you’re most familiar with. Generally, my students find part 2 easier.

      Good luck on your exam! If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to reach out 🙂

    1. Hi Shakir,

      If you have a test bank, practice a lot on mock exams. Make sure your score is above 80%. Once each section is above 80%, start taking full mock exams of 100 questions each until your score is above 80% as well.

      Also make sure you’ve memorized all formulas – you may practice writing them down by heart and fast repeatedly until you can recall them quickly.

      Hope you’ll pass this time, Shakir 🙂 I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!

  59. Hi,

    This is the first time when I have heard about it and really keen to complete this but not sure about time challenge etc

  64. Hi Nathan,

    Thank God I found this page. My name’s Von and I’m working as an accountant for a new firm in the UAE. This is my first time to work as a full time accountant involving end to end accounting process, budgeting, decision making, etc. And that was what led me to want to learn management accounting more. I’ve done my research and tumbled upon a number of certifications such as CIMA, ACCA, CFA, CMA, and others. I was particularly interested at CIMA and CMA and actually torn between the two. But a mentor has told me that it’s better to take CMA because it will not take longer than CIMA. And CMA is most suitable for people with bachelor’s degree and more relevant in the UAE. Anyway, after much thought, i have decided to go for CMA. However due to budget constraint, I wouldnt be able to enroll in an exam preparation center. Hence, I’ve come to this page googling on how I can self study first and prepare. So thanks to you Mr. Nathan. Your help to us is much appreciated. God bless you more!

    1. Hi Von. Your mentor was right – the CMA certification is getting more and more popular in UAE. I’m happy to hear you stumbled upon my blog and I hope my experience will truly help you in your journey. 🙂

  122. Hi Nathan,

    I received the exam cheat sheet. Looking forward to the Structured Study Plan as well. I am a CA (India) as well as CIA – I am planning to give both parts together – is that a good idea?

    1. Shabbir, I always recommend to take one part per exam window.

      The exam pass rate is so low that taking two together will decrease your chances even more.
