Does anyone know how close do the actual CMA exam questions are as compared to Wiley CMA test bank ?May 14, 2018 at 11:52 am #1796549AnonymousInactive
I passed both CMA tests first try with Gleim CMA. The gleim bank is harder than the test. I just took far and I think CMA part 1 was more difficult. There's a lot more math and you need to have a lot more formulas internalized. I'd recommend gleim cma test bank if you can get it. Felt very prepared.May 17, 2018 at 10:55 am #1800343
Thanks for the reply AF
I have already purchased Wiley CMA test bank 🙁 and now I am stuck with it …..i didnt really do that well in FAR , infact I got my lowest score @ 77…and if CMA part 1 is harder and then god bless me 🙂
btw – how many hours did you put in for cma exam part 1 ?May 17, 2018 at 11:33 am #1800397SKParticipant
I used Wiley cma test banks for the CMA exam and they prepare you well for exam. Part 2 exam had two questions from Wiley cma test bank.
The more you practice MCQs….of all sections mixed together, the more predictable the exam will be.May 17, 2018 at 1:40 pm #1800583AnonymousInactive
I probably put in about 125 hours for CMA part 1 and like 75 for CMA Part 2. I also got a couple of questions straight from the Gleim cma test bank on my part 1.May 19, 2018 at 6:06 pm #1802974McGeeAndMeParticipant
Gleim recycles some CPA questions in their CMA prep. Which is why you get questions that take 5 minutes to calculate dealing with FIFO and LIFO and other topics that are simply absent on the CMA exam. So Gleim is harder than the actual cma exam… in part because it's sometimes prepping you for a more difficult exam.
My only real complaint with Wiley cma (so far) is the full length exam prep. I'd like there to be more, because it feels like you can burn through them too quickly. I may end up buying Power Resource's full length tests to supplement. It's $100 for full length practice exams for both sections, so may be worth it. I don't want their book or MCQ test bank tbh.May 31, 2018 at 4:02 pm #1815604
I wrote my part 1 exam today – it was so heavy on calculations… partly left one of my essay questions… did anyone else face a time crunch ? Fingers crossed, hoping for a miracle 🙂June 24, 2018 at 6:02 am #1843346
