Success on the CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) exam requires many things – including knowledge of the material, time management skills, an understanding of how the exam is graded, and insight into what to expect at the testing center.

The next CMA candidate webinar, “The CMA Exam: Test-Taking Tips and Strategies,” will cover all these things and more. It will take place on April 28 at 10 a.m. EDT and will feature presenters Lisa Beaudoin, CMA, CSCA, CAE, IMA senior director of business development; Amy Ford, CMA, CPA, senior associate faculty member, Western Illinois University; and Brent Streeter, CMA, director of finance, TE Connectivity.
