Follow These Steps To Clear CMA Exams
step 1: Efficient preparation:
First of all, don’t panic. Knowing exactly what you need to do in order to pass helps confine your goal into something concrete and workable.
The passing score is 360 out of 500. This means that you do NOT need to maximize your score. Many readers fall into this trap of spending as much time as they need to “perfect” one study unit before moving on, thus seriously running out of time for the rest of review materials.
A smart candidate should “optimize” instead of maximize your study effort. Remember the 80/20 rule: set a comfortably high standard of 80-85% accuracy for your practice test questions.
Similarly, while you should cover all study materials, it’s okay to be confident in most but not all (say 80-85%) of exam content. You can always go back and go for a higher target when time permits.
step 2: Effective study
Being “effective” is different from being “efficient”. An effective student can learn more and perform better given the same amount of studying time.
step 3: More productive time
Getting adequate amount of sleep is very important so I don’t suggest cutting back your resting time for CMA exam prep. However, you can make better use of the time when you are awake but not physically out of bed.
I’ve tried putting the alarm clock in the opposite side of my room, and have my favorite snack ready for me to grab as an extra incentive. Once the routine is established, it is much easier to keep the discipline.
step 4: Multiple choice preparation tips
Multiple choice questions represent 75% of the CMA exam. Therefore, the characteristics of MC questions determine the style of the test. For example, MC questions are generally used to test a wide variety of topics but they usually don’t go deep, as in they cannot ask you to analyze a scenario. Because of this, you can expect the CMA exam to be a mile wide or an inch deep.
step 5: Multiple choice testing tips
The best way to get prepared is to study all topics of the exam. Other than that, these tips can help you avoid silly mistakes and make better educated guess on the exam day.
The multiple choice in the CMA exam tends to be more lengthy and complex than other professional accounting exams. This makes time management critical. Generally speaking, you can allocate 3 hours (180 minutes) evenly to the 100 questions, which means 1.8 minutes per question.
step 6: Essay writing tips
essays are graded using a standard scoring rubric to test your:
- Knowledge of the exam content
- Ability to apply concepts in real business situations
Ability to express clearly and logically in business writing
