Preparing for the Exam
A wide range of study options can help you prepare for the CMA exam, from self-study, to online instruction, to live classes. The resources below will help you assess your readiness and aid in your preparation, allowing you to take advantage of flexible and convenient learning tools.
The IMA Statement on Ethical Professional Practice communicates the values and ethical standards that guide each member's conduct in the workplace and throughout the examination process. The principles of the Statement are tested on the CMA exams, and candidates are responsible for learning the Statement contents.
Exam Support Package
New candidates joining the CMA program receive six months free access to the Exam Support package on the IMA Learning Center, beginning on the day they pay the entrance fee. The CMA Exam Support Package includes a glossary of terms, Exam Resource Guide, downloadable and printable multiple-choice and essay practice questions, as well as an online assessment tool with multiple-choice exams for Parts 1 and 2.
One of the benefits of the CMA program is flexibility. You can study at your own pace and take the exams when you're ready. There are many ways to prepare for the CMA Exam–in a live classroom, a virtual classroom, or on your own. You should select the method and materials that best match the way you like to study.
