Now that the CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) exam has been revised, it’s more important than ever to make sure you’re prepared. To help, IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) offers special live webinars, held three times per year, that invite candidates to learn from seasoned experts about what it takes to study for and pass the exam. Note: CMA candidate webinars are not eligible for CPE credit. 

The first candidate webinar of 2020 will take place this spring and will feature Lisa Beaudoin, CMA, CSCA, CAE, IMA senior director of business development; and Amy Ford, CMA, CPA, of Western Illinois University, discussing “The CMA Exam: Test-Taking Tips and Strategies.” Beaudoin and Ford will help candidates prepare for the CMA testing experience during this one-hour interactive discussion. Areas covered include:

  • Effective study approaches
  • Time management strategies
  • Exam grading insights
  • What to expect at the testing center

Look for registration details coming to your inbox.

If you missed last month’s webinar about the multiple-choice questions, it’s still available in archived format on YouTube. Beaudoin and cohost Ford led a webinar titled “The CMA Exam: Navigating Multiple-Choice Questions.” A recorded version of that webinar is available at this link.

And finally, on August 18 at 10 a.m. ET, Beaudoin and a cohost will offer a webinar titled “The CMA Exam Essays: Everything You Need to Know!” focusing on how to optimize performance on the essay section of the exams for a better score. Areas covered include:

  • How the essay responses are graded
  • How to maximize your point-earning potential on each essay
  • How to manage your time wisely

Registration details will be made available as the deadline approaches.
