Gleim helped me save time and to better study for the CMA test. You can keep track of how you are performing, what you need to focus on, what are your weakest areas, and what you are already doing well. If you have a question, the team responsible for responding to your questions is very fast and their answers are always enriching and clarifying. I already had the opportunity to study for the PMP test using other materials, and I think that Gleim is the best solution I've had so far because of its easy-to-use interface and similarity with the actual test (visually and in content). The method of studying and learning each unit helped me on saving time and at the same time learning at a deeper level. You do a diagnostic quiz, then watch the Gleim Instruct Videos, read the materials, do another quiz and essay question for each study unit, and every time you receive feedback of how you are performing. I always recommend Gleim to my colleagues and friends. The CMA Review System is very comprehensive, intuitive, and designed for self-studying in an easy way. I used only Gleim materials for every study unit since the content in the study system is so complete and up-to-date.
- Julio Damiao, CMA, PMP, Brazil
The Gleim Review System provided me great insights for the real exam. With the preparation with Gleim, I felt confident in the real exam session. Also, Gleim covers all of the areas in the CMA syllabus which is tested on the real exam.
- Shibu Pazhanimala, CMA, India
I felt the material accurately reflected the actual exam and I was well prepared because I used the Gleim resources. I followed the Gleim outline for studying and I was successful in passing the CMA on my first attempt. When taking Part 1 of the CMA I was nervous that the information I studied would vary drastically from what I was actually asked on the CMA exam and that was not the case at all. Using Gleim and putting in the needed study time helped me achieve a passing score and obtain my CMA certification. My Personal Counselor was very helpful anytime I had a question. I appreciated that the response time from the Personal Counselors was very quick.
- Denise Clary, CMA, MBA
The Gleim CMA Review System was the perfect program to guide me through my study plan. My favorite part of the system was the test bank. I liked being able to let the system choose my weak areas and continually test me on those areas until I had a better understanding. I tended to focus on the areas that I was good at, but knew I really needed to tackle those more difficult topics. The Gleim Review System makes it easy to study no matter where you are. I listened to the audio lectures when I was commuting, and viewed the visual tutorials at home and during breaks at work. I could not have passed the two part exam without the Gleim Review System and highly recommend it to any CMA candidate. I will continue to use Gleim to obtain my CPE credits and also if I choose to pursue future certifications.
- Colleen Nissell, CMA
I did my CMA using Gleim, and I recommend everyone to use it. It was very helpful for me, covering all the exam material in an easy, dynamic way. What I liked the most is their online access, that in addition to the books helped me a lot. The Review Course guides you step by step to achieve your goal and earn whatever certificate you're interested in. The question bank was also very helpful, it helped to simulate the exam environment. The Personal Counselors are very helpful when you need them. I surely recommend Gleim, and will use it again if I pursuit another certificate.
- Amjad Barhoush, Senior Accountant
The Gleim Review System, most importantly, helped me stay on track studying for the CMA. Both of my CMA exams were completed and passed on schedule, within six months, and on the first attempt. With a busy work schedule, the Study Planner helped me plan according to my availability and I appreciated that it helped me plan around days I would be unable to study so that these instances didn’t cause me to fall behind. I would suggest friends to use Gleim for several reasons. The material provided the right level of detail as well as examples, problems, and study material. In addition, the website was user friendly and easy to navigate. Lastly, it was helpful to have a contact at Gleim and any inquiries were always answered very timely.
- Emily True CPA, CMA
I like the way the course was structured. Basically, all of the units are well covered and explained in an easy way. Going through each section, you get the necessary knowledge and confidence to face the exam. Thanks to being able to access the study material via the internet, I could practice easily and I did not need to bring the books with me. Even more, it helped me to measure both my study and my progress. Yes, I would recommend it the Gleim course. I think it is useful support to get ready for the exam. For me the Personal Counselors are the "human part" of Gleim, and as such they are an important value added that Gleim provides.
- Michele Ferrantino, CMA
I liked that the Gleim Review System was methodical and easy to use. I used a competitor for the CPA test and it was very dull, boring, and seemed to skip around a bunch. My Personal Counselor was engaging and helped keep me on task with watching the videos and understanding the material. It made sense the way that Gleim takes you through the material. The Gleim System made it easier for me to study in many different ways and ingrain the information in my mind for the test. The multiple choice questions were very extensive and I felt more prepared going into the test since it was set up exactly the same way that the actual test was. I would, and do, recommend the Gleim Review System to others. Actually, one of my friends is using the Gleim System for the CPA certification.
- Andy Ayers, CMA
The Gleim Review System was THE essential (and only) tool I used to solidly pass both parts of the CMA exam on my first attempts. The printed and online resources worked perfectly together and provided me with study options to suit my style. The testing system is exactly like the Gleim system, so navigation was easy. After each test, I left cautiously optimistic, but I admit I was nervous…did I pass or not? The waiting was the hardest part! Well, my answers finally came. I scored 440 on Part 1 and 450 on Part 2! I recommend the Gleim system to prepare for any exam certification for which they offer study tools. If I am in the position to seek another certification, Gleim will be the first place I turn to ensure my success!
- Mark Andromidas, CMA
What I liked about the Gleim Review system is that I could use the online system every where I was, on any platform. Also, the lecture videos were very useful in preparing me for the CMA exams. I would certainly recommend the Premium CMA Review System to anyone wants to study for the CMA exam. Thanks to the Gleim Review System, I was well prepared and was able to pass both on the first try in the same testing window.
- Lorenzo Winia, CMA
The online Review Course was essential to me passing on the first try. The multiple choice quizzes gave me a great feel for the testing environment that I encountered during examination, both from a look and feel to learning time management which is critical for the exams. Gleim's Review Course is totally customizable, which I loved. The system lets you pick and choose what to test on while also directing you to your weaker areas as you go through the program. I would recommend the Gleim Review System to everyone who wants to take the CMA exam. The Review System is worth its weight in gold when preparing for the CMA. I would definitely return to Gleim for testing or educational needs in the future!
- Tyson S., CMA
The Gleim Review System benefited me in many ways, but two in particular stand out to me. First, the Gleim Review System really helped me to budget my time and set goals. Working full-time doesn't leave me much time to cross items off my personal to-do list, but the Study Planner made it easy to visualize a real goal and figure out how I could get from Point A, just starting to study, to Point B, actually sitting for the exam. The second major benefit was the structure of the system. The flow of the studying materials keeps the entire process from becoming monotonous. You don't just sit down and read a book for hours on end. You are actually testing what you already know, diving into the details, and then taking quizzes to really test comprehension. If a colleague or friend came to me inquiring about how to prepare for the CMA, I would absolutely recommend the Gleim Review System. The material is straight forward enough for someone like me who received a degree in finance to comprehend, but challenging enough that you will be more than ready to pass the exams. Gleim strikes a perfect balance. Maybe the best aspect of the Gleim Review System is how the quizzes and practice essays simulate the testing environment. When you get to the actual exam, you will have no surprises in regards to the process, layout, or functionality. I believe just being comfortable and confident is half the battle on exam day. I would certainly use Gleim for any other certifications I might purse down the road, and to earn CPE to keep my CMA certification active.
- Jacob Jarrell, CMA
When I started studying with Gleim, I was in the last trimester of pregnancy and soon after that, I delivered my first baby. This means I had limited time to use for my studying. Although it took nearly 2 years, I finally passed the CMA exams, which proves that the Gleim materials are well-organized for studying. I didn’t use any other studying materials, I just followed Gleim's Suggested Steps. If asked about Gleim by my friends, I will surely recommend it to them. Gleim is a reliable supporter to pass the exams.
- Fuse Ryoko
I would definitely recommend Gleim! The review system greatly helped me prepare for the exam by providing a realistic test setting!
- Catherine Ma, CMA
I bought one of the Gleim self-study books about 15 years ago, so I knew the Gleim materials were thorough and well organized. The fact that I was able to study on my iPad on the commuter bus was a big help. When I couldn’t be reading or watching the videos, I was able to listen to the audio lectures using my phone. The Gleim suggested approach was incredibly important to my success. I found the adaptive learning technology extremely useful because it allowed me to concentrate on my weak areas, especially during the intensive review days leading up to the exam. I loved seeing all my red bars gradually turn green after practice exams. I would strongly recommend the Gleim system to anyone pursuing the CMA. It has everything you need to make the best use of your time. The different delivery formats Gleim offers allows you to study productively in any environment, and the enormous problem sets mean you can practice until you know you’re ready for the exam.
- Phillip Dennis
Gleim has a very comprehensive review system, and the online questions covered all of the material needed for the exam. As a business professional, Gleim has helped me manage my time wisely. I will definitely tell my friends to take advantage of Gleim package. I will use Gleim for my CPE and other certifications going forward.
- Irene Mao
The Gleim software was absolutely essential to passing the CMA exam. The sections were divided into bite-sized lessons which were easy to review. In addition, I really enjoyed the Gleim Instruct videos which helped explain some of the questions and concepts. The books are really helpful, especially on the go. The personal counselor is a great resource that helped me before and after the exams. I would definitely recommend Gleim to others and I look forward to using the software for CPE credits or other future certifications.
- Sarah Mazzie
I'm currently a senior financial analyst with a Fortune 500 manufacturing company. I decided to pursue the CMA designation because my work experience related closely to the content of the exam and my employer encouraged financial professionals to pursue this designation. The Gleim software and testing materials for the CMA exam are excellent. The Gleim Review System benefited me by providing a systematic, methodical means for passing the exam. I studied for and passed both exams within a period of 4.5 months while working a demanding full-time job. The system enables you to quickly absorb key concepts and provides a huge bank of test questions. I didn't want to spend a year studying for an exam. I wanted to pass it efficiently so that I could move on with my career. Gleim enabled me to set this ambitious goal and achieve it. I would tell a friend that if they are interested in efficiently studying for and passing the CMA exam then they should immediately contact Gleim to buy the books and online access. These two combined are the key to success.
- Daniel Roebuck, CPA, CMA
Among the materials that I used, the Gleim CMA exam format is identical to the actual exam windows. This helped me to get familiar with the format of the questions and to practice questions within the time frame. I studied for about one month before my scheduled exam, and the Gleim materials helped smooth my areas of uncertainty. The multiple choice questions alone had already well-prepared me for the exam. Thanks to Gleim, I finally accomplished my goal to become a CMA!
- Kathy Chen, CMA, Canada
I found the material very useful and straight to the point. What I liked the most is the huge amount of preparation questions that are available for every single chapter. Personally, I benefited from Gleim Review System and its exam preparation techniques as well as the amazing personal counselors who were always available to provide me with advice and help me whenever I needed help. I also can't forget the experts who helped me when I needed any clarification. So, I strongly recommend the Gleim material to whoever thinks about becoming a CMA. I will keep using the Gleim Review System for my CPE Hours.
- Mai. AbdelAzim , CMA
I bought Gleim and never did I question it. It was a great product and it was just like the test. I was very well prepared and passed both my tests on the first try! I asked my Personal Counselor some questions and she always responded very quickly and efficiently. She always had an answer!
- Cassandra Reese, CMA
Gleim provided me not only with the materials necessary to pass the exams, but also the tools to help me prioritize and plan my studies around my busy schedule. The Gleim self-study program is the most convenient and organized program to help anyone (yes, anyone) pass the exams
- Cristian Cano, CMA, CPA
When my company pushed for a certification and selected CMA, we found the program content to be very attractive and enhancing. However, being a non-native English speaker has brought forward an additional difficulty. This is where the Gleim Review System became very instrumental in preparing me for the exams. Not only does the material offer a great deal of concepts and knowledge in a concise and productive way, it helps to effectively plan the hours of study and the necessary practice to timely address the exam questions. Also, being able to properly simulate the testing environment added to the level of confidence and preparation required to successfully perform on the exams. I highly recommend the Gleim Review System.
- Fernando Portes, CMA (São Paulo, Brazil)
The Gleim material was pivotal in my success and I cannot thank you enough! I was able to clear both parts of the exam on my first attempt and in the same window! The combination of offline reading material, audio courses to listen to when traveling, and the vast online Test Prep helped me immensely! The approach of breaking out the study material into smaller modules/sub-sections works really well. The ability of the Test Prep to create tests based on your 'weaker' areas is a great feature. Finally, the study planner helped me stay on track by sending me regular notifications on modules that were due. Overall, Gleim is an excellent package and I would recommend it to anyone aspiring to be a CMA!
- Deepak Nagpal, CMA
I passed my Part 2 CMA exam using Gleim, and I strongly recommend Gleim since it delivers the needed information in a clear and direct way. The study materials they offer are more than enough to help you pass your exam. Also, the Personal Counselors are very responsive. Thanks Gleim!
- Ahmad Badawy, Egypt
The Gleim CMA review system prepared me extremely well for the actual exam in a variety of ways: (1) the educational content in the course mirrored the actual content on parts 1 & 2 of the exam; (2) the Gleim sequential study system exposed me to the appropriate course material, reinforced the material learned through repetitive practice, and provided the answers to the questions I had answered incorrectly; and (3) the unlimited amounts of multiple-choice question, practice sessions was invaluable in the learning process.
- John White, CMA, CHAE
The Gleim Instruct videos were the most helpful for me, as they related some confusing accounting concepts in ways that were common to every day business. Additionally, the thousands of multiple choice questions were a big help, and I found that the actual questions on the CMA exam were very familiar because of using the Gleim practice tests. It also allowed me to study at my own pace.
- Chris Garrand, Division CFO
I reviewed with Gleim for Part 1 and I have to say that the material and the data bank were amazing and designed in a systematic and easy way. It was easy for me to move from a chapter to a chapter. I used Gleim again for Part 2 and again the material was very well structured and it was easy to follow. I passed the Part 2 exam and I am a CMA now, thanks to Gleim material. I genuinely advise any friend to use the Gleim material because it is well structured, explained in a very good manner, and it is easy to follow. The data bank was comprehensive and covering all the materials.
- Mohamad Bachar Saidi, CMA, United Arab Emirates
The Gleim Review System offers bite size materials that allowed me to take advantage of my limited time and helped me to focus. I could download the audio to learn when I was on the way or running around. The questions are very similar to the exam. It helped me to familiarize myself with the content and the style of the exam. In a nutshell, the system benefited me a lot! A must have product that you will never regret!
- Alan Li, CMA
I have to say that Gleim helped me effectively pass my CMA exams. As a Senior Manager in a bank, I can hardly find free time to study. I depended on the Gleim material solely. The materials are written professionally and the online system is great. I advise anyone who wants to pass CMA to depend on Gleim.
- Ahmed ELsakka, Kuwait
I used the Gleim self-study module and cleared both parts of the CMA on the first attempt. I sincerely thank Gleim for coming-up with such a comprehensive and robust module which ensures success. I rate Gleim CMA product very high from a standpoint of its simple user interface, in-depth course content and exam-like multiple choice questions.
- Parth Vyas CMA, MSA
After 10 years of working experience, I chose to study for the CMA to sharpen my knowledge. The biggest doubt I had about this venture was if it would be possible for me to go back to my study regime since I had lost the touch with preparing for exams. After searching online for study materials, it didn't take long to finalize upon the Gleim CMA Review System. I found that the package was very well designed and after couple of weeks, I decided to finalize exam dates and plan studies around those dates. The next difficult decision was to have both the dates in same exam window. Thinking about it now, appearing for both parts in the same window would have been nearly impossible had Gleim not been as good as it was. I do not have the words to thank my Personal Counselor. Her words of wisdoms were immensely helpful. I have no doubts that Gleim is very capable of equipping everyone, including students and working professionals, to prepare for the exams in shortest possible time. This review system is the best value for your money that one can get and more than enough to boost confidence level required to successfully clear the exams.
- Sarang Bhandari, India
Not only did the Gleim Review System prepare me with the material to pass on the first attempt, it also made me feel comfortable going into the exam, as I knew exactly what to expect. Gleim worked well for me because of the variety of mediums through which one can choose to study. For me, I really grasped the concepts through the professor-led instructional videos, as the professor gave me ways to remember theories and formulas that I would not have remembered otherwise. My personal counselor assisted and cheered me on along the whole way as well, which is a neat feature that I was thankful to have. I would recommend Gleim to anyone, as they are easy to work with and help achieve positive results.
- Brandi Dominique, CMA
I scored a 430 on Part 1 and a 460 on Part 2 so the materials obviously contained the material or helped me get to the answers I needed! Gleim was extremely helpful from the initial sale of the product to obtaining the materials and questions related to the exam. The questions in the Test Bank and the detail in the books are the best part of the course. There were so many questions on the exam where I felt like I had completed a similar question (or many of them) from the Test Bank. The book gives enough detail without being too burdensome. The practice essays also gave good practice on the mindset needed to take the exam, even if the essay questions were more challenging on average than the ones on the exam. However, the materials replicate the exam experience extremely well. I had very positive experiences during my studying with the Personal Counselors. They were extremely helpful when I had questions and when new materials came out and we needed a bundled purchase to come to the office for the employees taking the exam. They were extremely enthusiastic during my studying as well.
- Corey Mitleider, CPA, CMA
I selected the Gleim program to pursue my CMA because of the robust test bank of practice questions and competitive pricing. The lessons provided careful explanation that were appropriate for my varying experience levels in the topic areas. I was very pleased to have comfortably passed both parts of the exam within a year using Gleim.
- Bryan Kelly, CMA
I have passed both the papers of CMA. I want to thank the Gleim team for their support and thank Gleim. The review system helped me to know the topics to be covered. The test preparation helped me to understand the exam and to know my weak areas. My colleagues are also doing the CMA and I recommend them to use Gleim.
- Ashish Mohideen, CMA, United Arab Emirates
I wanted to express my sincere gratitude to Gleim on helping, supporting, and encouraging me to pass the CMA exam, especially during the last 18 months. The Gleim Review System has benefited me personally by improving my skills and competencies and by providing me the necessary tools and knowledge to pass the CMA exam. I would tell my friends and colleagues that if you want to pass the accounting exams successfully and accomplish your goal, go for Gleim. It is the best.
- Rami Bannayan, CMA, UAE
I'm so glad that I did the right decision by choosing the Gleim materials for CMA. They are absolutely perfect for an average person with basic accounting and finance knowledge for self-study. I successfully passed the both parts from the first attempt within the two consecutive testing periods. My actual results for the both parts were approximately 10% higher than the rehearsal exam results.
- Jumshud Sultanov, CMA Azerbaijan
As a professional, the desire to further improve myself while meeting the demands of my career and family was the biggest challenge I faced in obtaining my CMA certification. So many people told me I needed to spend a lot more money on a different product, but Gleim was able to provide me with all the materials (and more) than those overpriced competitors offered. Gleim's products allowed me to study on the go at any moment I could carve out while still meeting my professional and personal obligations. I would never have been able to pass both tests on the first attempt had it not been for the quality and flexibility Gleim's study materials provided. I would recommend the product to anyone I know and will likely be using them again soon!
- Becky DuLac
I liked the way Gleim's Personal Counselors guided and motivated me all the time. I also liked the variety of questions with detailed answers to help you understand the topic. Gleim Review system helped me to understand the topics, read big questions quickly, and answer them in short time. I would definitely recommend Gleim. It benefited to me, it should be beneficial for others who are pursuing the CMA and want to pass it quickly.
- Murtaza Pitolwala, Sultanate of Oman
I had been trying to prepare for the first exam on my own but wasn’t able to find enough content online to really get a strong understanding of the material. I had been concerned about adding the cost for a study system like Gleim, but realized that I needed to make that investment. Gleim Online was structured in a way that showed you immediately what you didn’t need to focus on by giving you a quick quiz before you start a new topic, which really helped streamline my studying. Don’t wait to make the investment. I waited on my first exam and didn’t have enough time with the material so I wasn’t successful on that test. After fully using the study system for my retake of part 1 and for part 2, I passed both exams. I am currently really excited to not have to study for another certification!! Gleim will be my go to resource for CPE credits moving forward.
- Sarah Weems, CMA
I highly recommend the Gleim system to anyone interested in obtaining their CMA certification. I have to say that I don't believe I would've passed on my first try without the Gleim Review System. It really provided an accurate representation of the topics that will be covered by the exam as well as the type and format of the questions that will be asked. The material was right on the money. It made my preparation focus on what is important. Well worth the price, also!
- Eugene Wojciech
Gleim has a CMA preparation product designed to fit your most effective style of learning. The workbooks contained everything I needed to know, including sample exam questions. I passed both on the first try! I am now a freshly minted CMA!
- Patrick Riggsbee
Gleim did an excellent job in accurately reflecting the exam information. The materials were very informative and prepared me for the exam. Thank you very much for the help and support.
- Vrinda Narayanan
Without Gleim I would not have passed the CMA exams. The online exam training was fundamental in passing the exams. The online class room was always available, no frustration because of server downtime or interrupted training sessions. This means you have a stable and well working environment, which for me as a user is very important. User interface was clear and easy. Progress and average scores were also clearly shown. Materials were up to date and aligned with the CMA examination.
- Carlos Fernandes, CMA, Netherlands
I followed the Gleim recommended study instructions and passed the CMA. I would tell my friends to buy Gleim and don't look at others. I am planning on using Gleim for my CIA studies as well.
- Hikmet Serim, CMA from Istanbul, Turkey
I took both Parts of the CMA within a month and never would have been able to do so without Gleim. The thousands of test bank questions, essay wizard, comprehensive text and personal guidance from a counselor were the keys to my success. Will surely be using Gleim products as I move on to my next certifications!
- Judah Schwartz, CPA
The Gleim study material and test prep process were instrumental to my successful passing of both Part 1 and Part 2 of the exams. They very accurately reflected what was tested on the exam, and there was no material in the test that I felt unprepared for. I was very well taken care of throughout the whole process, and I felt like Gleim was very interested in ensuring that I passed the exam. I felt fully supported and the material prepared me quite well.
- Mike Crabill, CMA
I'm very excited to have passed both CMA exams on the first try, and Gleim was exactly what I needed! It provided the perfect amount of structure for studying to be sure I got through all the necessary material, enough practice questions to measure my improvement, and made sure I had no surprises on exam day.
- Rebecca Hampel, CMA
An affordable, condensed yet thorough outline covering almost every possible test question. The Gleim system allows you to tackle the hardest test questions with confidence! I love how lightweight the textbooks are. I took them with me everywhere!
- Laura Moore, CMA, CPA
After graduating from the University of Oregon with a degree in Accounting, I knew I wanted to solidify my knowledge by pursuing a career in accounting. However, after 2 summers as an intern at a public accounting firm, I knew that the CPA wasn't the right fit. When I discovered that my best subject in school was represented by the CMA certification, I was very excited to move forward. I heard about Gleim from a third party and inquired about more information. Gleim has fantastic materials that got me where I needed to be to succeed. With the help of Gleim, I was able to pass both exams within the first testing window.
- Gavin Arblaster, CMA
I am glad to share my success with the CMA examination; I passed Part 2 in the last testing window of 2014 with a score of 400 and Part 1 in the first testing window of 2015 with a score of 370. I owe my entire success to Gleim and its team for the quality materials and systematic approach that enabled me to understand the concepts thoroughly and approach the exam with confidence. Thank you Gleim for your contribution towards shaping better Financial Managers across the globe.
- Halan Manoj Kumar, CMA,Kuwait
The Gleim methodology not only gave me the knowledge I needed to pass the CMA Exams, but the confidence I needed as well. I can say without hesitation that the Gleim Review System was the sole reason I was able to pass both parts of the CMA Exam on my first attempt. I have already spread the word about how effective and thorough Gleim is, and I plan to communicate the superior benefits of the Gleim Review Systems to my finance colleagues moving forward.
- Shane Convery
After sitting for the CMA exam with a competitor and failing, I switched to Gleim. Using Gleim, I felt like I had a better understanding of the materials and was able to pass the exam, despite the addition of three more rigorous units. I would definitely recommend Gleim and its comprehensive system.
- Husam Meshal, CMA, Jordan
The Gleim CMA Review System is really good; its materials prepare you for the exam and the exam environment. I like the multifaceted components of the Review System. They really help. Once you have completed the entire system, you will be ready for the exam. I will definitely recommend Gleim to my friends that are preparing for the CMA. Thank you, Gleim!
- Qi Xu, CMA
Gleim is a great resource. My coworker recommended that I should use Gleim since it helped her pass the exam as well. For Part 1, I was confident when I sat for the exam because I felt all the practice questions prepared me well. Part 2 was a little more challenging because the content was more dense, but I still passed. I would only recommend Gleim to friends and colleagues. It is the best resource and will provide the best chance of passing the exam.
- Fahad Shariff
As someone who has limited time, Gleim made it easy for me to create a study schedule that I could adhere to while still receiving the maximum benefit. The small daily commitment allowed me to build my knowledge over a planned period of time, but the schedule was flexible enough to accommodate for life's interruptions. Gleim utilizes multiple ways of learning and makes it easy for you to feel confident. For each test, I knew I would pass because Gleim gave me the confidence that I was fully prepared. I would recommend Gleim to anyone that is looking to obtain a certification; the lessons are incredibly well done.
- Justin B. Merritt, CMA
I knew that if I wanted to pass the CMA exam on the first try, I would need help. I chose Gleim based on the recommendation of a friend and I could not have been happier with the results! I passed both parts of the exam on my first attempt and in less than a year. I have already recommended Gleim to a friend of mine that is thinking about taking the exam. I am aware of Gleim's aviation materials, and it may sound strange, but it has always been a dream of mine to become a pilot. I think that it is time to reward myself for my hard work and do something that I have always dreamed of doing.
- Matt Ellerbrook, CMA
The Gleim Review System benefited me by creating similar testing conditions to the actual exam, which allowed me to properly prepare myself. Additionally, the ability to review the questions that I answered incorrectly allowed me to understand why my answers were wrong and to learn the material more thoroughly. I would recommend Gleim to my friends and coworkers. I would tell them to follow the system and use all the parts to their fullest. Gleim understands that everyone learns differently, and the Review System works with every learning style. If I decide to pursue the CPA designation in the next year or so, I will definitely use Gleim.
- Michael Allen, CMA
I personally benefited from the Gleim Review System because it was well organized. I was able to break up the chapters to fit my schedule, which allowed me to better utilize my time. I recommended the Gleim CPA Review System to a coworker and he ended up purchasing all 4 parts. I will use Gleim to study for the CPA as well.
- Brian Valenti, CMA
I learned about the Gleim CMA Review through internet research; its numerous positive reviews made choosing Gleim a simple decision. Gleim offers a comprehensive coverage of the CMA material, which allows you to obtain a thorough understanding of the topics. I used Gleim for 7 months, and was able to pass both parts of the exam with an aggregate of 950 out of 1000 marks. I want to thank the Gleim team for providing extensive coverage of the material, a personal counselor who helped me along my way, and answers to my questions on a timely basis. I would definitely recommend Gleim as the best review course for the CMA, and would use Gleim again.
- Priyamvada Trivedi, CMA
With the help of Gleim’s Full Review System, I passed both parts of the CMA! I loved everything about the Gleim materials, especially the ability to study at my own pace and utilize various tools to ensure I was fully prepared on exam day. I really liked the quality of the review questions in the book and online, including detailed explanations for correct and incorrect answers. I highly recommend Gleim study materials for all CMA candidates.
- Leslie McCalla, CMA
I appreciated the systematic approach that Gleim took regarding what to review and when to do so. As soon as I reviewed Gleim's approach, I was able to easily set up a study schedule. I think the best part of the Gleim materials was the variety of questions available; this was probably the biggest benefit for me. I had a great experience with Gleim and would recommend it to friends and coworkers.
- Lisa Marsh, CMA
Having limited time due to various activities and responsibilities ranging from business, leisure, to family matters, Gleim online products were sufficient enough in terms of content and realizing the objective. Its study methodology supported me throughout this tough, long journey. It has the perfect self-study material supported by a large pool of multiple-choice questions, essays and helpful counselors and provided the flexibility I needed.
- A. Mustafa Dag, CPA, CMA, CIA, United Arab Emirates
Gleim has a great reputation; there are a lot of positive reviews from other people that have successfully passed their exams using Gleim. I, too, had huge success using Gleim for my CMA preparations. I think that the feedback from the online practice quizzes gave me just the information I needed in order to focus on my weaker areas. I would definitely recommend Gleim to anyone looking to pass the CMA exam. I plan to use Gleim to study for the CPA in the future and for my Continuing Professional Eduction as well.
- James Stavig, CMA
The Gleim materials helped me focus on the concepts and helped direct my efforts by pacing my studying. If I pursue the CPA designation, I will use Gleim. I would also recommend these materials to friends and colleagues.
- Kyle Fleener, CMA
Coming from a third world country has never been a barrier in achieving my goal of becoming a Certified Management Accountant. At first my goal was just to pass the exams, but I felt that was not enough. I wanted to excel! I carefully chose the best review course, which is Gleim! Gleim offers the best way to review, and at a very fair price! I am glad that I chose Gleim! I will recommend this system to other CMA candidates!
- Ma. Victoria Ilano, CPA, CMA
I wanted to further my career and realized that obtaining my CMA was an obvious next step. However, it's been over 15 years since I did any type of studying, so I was really concerned about how to prepare for the exam. I selected Gleim because of its multi-pronged approach to studying - it literally approaches the study process from every aspect - audio, visual, and hands-on. Gleim gave me a structured format so I knew I was focusing on the right topics, and provided instant feedback to assess my strengths and weaknesses. My favorite part of Gleim was that I could vary the practice exams according to what I needed to focus on; questions I'd never been asked before or topics I was struggling with were very helpful. I took the unusual approach of testing for BOTH parts in the same test window and passed both on my very first try! I have already been recommending Gleim to other colleagues who are preparing for the CMA exam and will continue to do so. Thanks so much for creating this great review system!
- Claude-Helene McIntyre, CMA
I used Gleim study materials to prepare for the CMA exam. I have a full
time job, so I did not have time to sit in a classroom to prepare for
the exam. I benefited from Gleim's self study format a lot due to the
fact that the study guides are comprehensive and cover all the content specifications outlined in the CMA exam very well. Gleim breaks down the coursework into study units, which are further divided into separate parts, allowing me to grasp different topics quite quickly. Also, Gleim's question bank is vast; I was not surprised by any questions on the actual test. When I started preparing for the CMA exam, I thought it would take me more than a year to pass both parts. However, with Gleim, I was able to pass both levels in just under 6 months. I would definitely recommend Gleim to other friends and coworkers who plan on taking the CMA exam. Also, I would use Gleim to prepare for CPA certification.
- Neha Shukla, CMA
My line manager at work recommended I use Gleim to prepare for the CMA exam. He said it is the most comprehensive system that truly prepares you to pass the CMA exam; he was certainly right. I personally plan for every goal in life, and this is how Gleim supported me. Gleim provides a study plan with a proven track record that increases the probability of passing the CMA exam on the first try. It sets an effective plan for the challenging goal of passing the CMA exam. Gleim uses comprehensive knowledge transfer outlines, which explain all the CMA content, and then they couple those outlines with great practice exams that really do emulate the real CMA exam. I recommend to any person considering to pursue the CMA designation, to use Gleim, because it certainly helped me and many others become CMAs in the most effective and efficient way possible.
- Khaled Al Taher, CMA, Saudi Arabia
I purchased the Gleim CMA Review System in March; I took the Part 1 exam in June and the Part 2 exam in October. I was able to pass both parts on my first attempt. The review system was put together well. The online materials were an invaluable asset in assessing my knowledge. Additionally, it provided exam conditions with regards to the allotted time and the different types of questions that were part of the actual exam. Upon leaving both exams, I felt that every question was thoroughly covered in the Gleim materials.
- Joseph Herndon, CMA
I used the Gleim review system for the CMA exam, and passed both parts on my first try. I really think the key for passing the exam is following the Gleim Guarantee for Success steps that are outlined in the program. Each part of the exam is broken down into sections, to give you an in-depth understanding of what you are learning, and to build upon that knowledge as you proceed. I would highly recommend the Gleim system to someone who is sitting for the CMA, CPA, CIA etc. exam. It is practical, affordable, and really helps you to retain the information come test day. The system really works!
- Grace Oludiji, CMA
When I started thinking about studying for the CMA exam, my friends informed me that the Gleim Review is the best for me. Personally, I prefer practice over endless reading, and the Gleim materials were perfect. I will certainly consider Gleim when planning for future certificates.
- Mohammed Alarifi, CMA, Saudi Arabia
I started the CMA in January 2014; Gleim made me confident enough to take both parts of the exam within 6 months. The breakdown of study material and the layout of the review system is just simply AWESOME. This allowed me to grasp the entire book for Part 1 and Part 2 very easily. I really liked this step by step approach. I would like to thank the Gleim team for the excellent review system they have for CMA exam. Without it, success would have been far more difficult to achieve. I am currently studying for the CPA exam, and I have chosen to once again use Gleim! I will definitely recommend Gleim to everyone!
- Prasad Bapat, CMA, UAE
The Gleim system is well organized and structured so that you can budget your time to complete the study process in time for the exam. The ability to do numerous practice exams was a real plus. In addition, the practice exams add a little more time pressure so that you can get used to answering all questions in the allotted time. I would recommend the Gleim system, and I certainly plan to utilize Gleim for CPE requirements.
- Ed Konrad, CMA
I am very happy that I have passed the CMA exams with the help of the Gleim Review in less than a year. It is a very well designed system that teaches efficient and effective use of time. Time is the key for this exam. The Review System is designed in such a way that allows clarification of concepts as well as mastery of any weak areas. The best part for me was the convenience of asking any relevant questions online and having them answered with thorough explanations. This was very useful while I was studying and it made the process much easier for me. I would recommend Gleim Review System to not only my friends, but to all aspiring CMA candidates as well.
- Rekha Bharani
The Gleim system was so easy to use and gave me a real sense of the actual CMA exam format. The material included in the sample tests was spot on. As a full time management accountant that travels internationally, I really enjoyed the many different study methods allowed by the Gleim system. I would recommend the Gleim system to anyone interested in pursuing an accounting certification. I actually already have the other cost accountant at my company enrolled with Gleim for his CMA prep. I am currently using the Gleim CPA prep for my upcoming CPA exams.
- Jed Carlson, CMA
I used Gleim System for the CMA Exam Part II. I had used another system in my first try and I was not successful. Since the beginning when I started using Gleim, I have had a better understanding of topics. In addition the coaching combined with the online support was key in clarifying questions and/or doubts during my preparation. The listening material was very helpful because while I was stuck in the traffic, I was able to study. I will recommend this method because I improved 100 points since my first try in the CMA exam part II.
- Horacio Salinas, CMA, Mexico
Gleim CMA review has been a reliable companion in my journey to CMA certification. Its flexibility allowed me to stay on track while I changed my country of residence 3 times. Gleim Personal Counselors have been of great support whenever I needed advice or a reminder to focus on my studies. Gleim practice test interface resembles real time test to such an extent that I could focus on the content 100% and it felt like another practice, rather then an exam. I shall recommend Gleim to other professionals seeking CMA certification as thanks to this product I have obtained mine from first attempt.
- Marina V. Voropaeva, CMA, Azerbaijan
I strongly believe that Gleim should continue what it is offering to students. I honestly do know some of the competition as my friends chose to study with them. I can assure you that they were not as confident as I was during the whole exam preparation. Some of them even got demotivated and stopped studying. I passed both CMA parts from first attempts thanks to Gleim's outstanding study materials and method. I would strongly recommend every person willing to sit for the CMA to study with Gleim and follow to the letter their study recommendations, time management tips as well as exam tips. When you go to the exam room, you will be so much in control that there is absolutely no way that you fail. Thank you Gleim! I closely worked with the counselors. They were very helpful. They instantly replied to whatever inquiry I had. They helped me set a plan for my studies. I followed it to the letter and here I am, CMA (passed both parts from first attempts). They followed up with me during and after the exam. It has been a real pleasure working with such professional and dedicated people.
- Lamia Raffoul
After I failed two times in CMA part one exam I was really frustrated and about to lose interest when one friend of mine who is a CMA recommended Gleim material for me. It was great experience for me and I am very grateful for you and for all the support Gleim gave me. I can summarize the benefits I got from using Gleim material and what makes it different than any other review material in three points. 1- Its very comprehensive and covers most of if not all areas examined in the CMA exam. 2- It trains you very well with how to answer CMA questions in the sense of time and how to get the information you require from the question in order to give the right answer. 3- The way Gleim divided each part into ten units and putting them in the right order allow me to understand the relation between them. I will recommend Gleim for all of my friends who are interested in doing CMA.
- Ahmed Selim, CMA, Dubai
Gleim CMA online review is very good for an accounting major student like me who seeks a quick and efficient review. I took both parts in the same testing window and passed on my first sit. Don't worry if you get low scores in the online review system as I feel like the questions are designed to equip us to be stronger than what the actual exam asks for.
- Lubing Zhang, CMA
I cleared my Part II first. It raised my morale and confidence in the materials since without any additional support just on Gleim study materials I cleared Part II which is considered more practical and many think needs one to one coaching, which I felt is all available in the
material. Part I was a challenge again with many things happening on personal/career front. But ultimately, I was successfully during my last
appearance in January 2014. Again thanks to Gleim. Lastly, I would further advise pupil that Gleim is the best and though you may have initial
setbacks I would suggest hold on to the rope (Gleim in this case) since we are preparing for a highest level of qualification in our career and such falls are only stepping stone towards success.
- M. Aslam CA(Ind), CMA(US)
I used Gleim to prepare for the CMA several years ago (the previous four exam format). I comfortably passed all four parts first time through. Last year, I again used Gleim for the CPA with the same result! So that is eight for eight using Gleim - I would say this system works!
- Bill Oaks
I took both parts of the CMA exam within one testing period so Gleim really helped me stay on top of my work and pace myself. The chapters were broken out into small parts which helped me divide up my time and not overwork myself in one sitting. My advice to friends or colleagues taking the exam is that it is important to follow through with all the steps suggested in the Gleim methodology and to not take any shortcuts. I would use Gleim for Continuing Professional Education.
- Roshni M.
I would like to thank all the great team at Gleim. Now I get the CIA designation and the CMA certification with Gleim. It gave me all confidence that I need to achieve my goals. I recommend to every one who wants to get CIA or CMA to depend on Gleim. Save time and money and go directly with Gleim to make our dreams happen. I intend to continue with Gleim to get the great certification (CPA).
- Alaa Bakr, CIA, CMA
I have passed the last part of my CIA examination today and have qualified as a CIA. I have passed the CMA, CPA and CIA certification exams using Gleim. With adequate effort, Gleim (courseware and support) is a sure way to pass these exams.
- Ramakrishna(Ram) Vasudevan, CIA, CMA
I passed the CMA exam and want to thank you and the Gleim team for providing such great study materials.
- Norbert Tschakert, Ph.D., CPA, CMA, CIA, CFE, CFF, CITP, Salem State University
I wanted to let you and the staff at Gleim know that I passed Part 1 of CMA on my first attempt!!! I'm very pleased with my myself and the study materials. In my opinion, "The Gleim method" is the best method. I knew it was; I was one of the last students taught by Dr. Gleim before he retired from UF back in 1987-88. I used the objective question study guide back then and benefited. I had put off pursuing certification after I graduated because I felt I would change careers but I never did. So after 22 years of work in governmental accounting I felt I needed to do what Dr. Gleim told my class years ago, and that was to complete professional certifications.
- Tina Certain
Your material is no joke. To say that I am very satisfied is an understatement. I would take the Gleim study material and challenge it to any competitor, any time. I look forward to studying for Part 2.
- Ryan S.
I used the Gleim series to pass the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) exam in 2000 and have used it again to pass part 2 of the Enrolled Agent (EA) exam in 2013. I have found all products of Gleim to be comprehensive, easy to use and the best source available on the market today for test preparation. You can not get better value for your money.
- Gene Sterett , CMA
I used Gleim book and test prep for my preparations and found them really helpful. I recommend it to all my fellow CMA candidate friends. Along with hard work, you can rely on the Gleim study material as your success tool. I am really thankful to Gleim for their support. The Personal Counselors were there whenever I needed them and given me prompt support. Keep up the good work!!
- Iftekhar Ali, CMA, UAE
I want to thank Gleim for the very concise but comprehensive CMA Exam Review. I passed both parts of the CMA exam the first time! Everyone I worked with at Gleim to get my materials was very pleasant and helpful. I recommend this review product to all who are interested in passing the CMA exam. Keep up the good work!
- Leslie Vaughan, CPA, CMA, University of the Pacific
Thanks to the Gleim CMA Review System, I was able to pass both parts of the exam in less than 5 months. I really think Gleim provides excellent review for CMA candidates.
- Jack Wu, CMA, Instructor at Chemeketa Community College
I feel that the Gleim study program provided me with the direction I needed to prepare for the CMA exam. I wouldn't have even known where to begin without it! My favorite thing about the Gleim aid is that it covers all of the correct answers in full detail; showing all of the work. I was able to learn from my mistakes and learn how to work through the problems. I feel like this has been a great tool, not only to prepare for the test, but to solidify my knowledge of the topics.
- Jennifer Fulton
The Essays on the CMA has been the most difficult part for me; therefore I was not able to pass the exam because of this. So, I started using the Gleim CMA Essay Wizard. It helped me out on this. Now I have passed the exam, and earned the CMA designation. I encourage candidates to use The Gleim materials. It really helps. I am planning to pursue CIA designation, and will consider using the Gleim materials.
- Elhadi Elimam, CMA , Saudi Arabia
My employer communicated to me that they would help pay for the training materials, IMA registration costs, etc. I decided to begin my preparations in February of 2012 for the Part 1 exam in May 2012. I chose to use Gleim because I had heard great things about their study materials and a few co-workers suggested them. The study guide did a great job of suggesting a study rhythm and schedule to prepare for my 1st test. I read each section and completed the multiple choice questions. I also utilized the software package. After three months of hard work I passed the first round! I took a month off, then decided to go for round two! I used Gleim again for the 2nd test which was in October of 2012. I followed the same study habits and passed the second round! After achieving the two year experience requirement I received my CMA certification in August of 2013! I would highly recommend the Gleim Review System to anyone considering the CMA certification. From personal experience, I can testify to the fact that Gleim was a major reason why I was able to pass both tests on the first try.
- Kurt Riddle
The Gleim CMA review course is succinct and comprehensive in the material it provides. Each topic is reinforced with questions and essays that test all aspects to ensure reinforcement of key concepts. It is well organized and whether you are still in school, recently graduated, or graduated over 10 years ago, the material along with Gleim's support and study plans will ensure success on the CMA exam. By completing all of the study and essay questions, candidates should be well prepared for the actual exam. From my experience, the study materials were harder than the actual exam and the exam simulations made the whole experience less nerve racking, which
also helped ensure my success on the CMA exam.
- Robert B. Johnson, CMA, CPA
I am pleased to say I successfully passed the CMA using the Gleim Review System! The system enables participants to truly customize the program to meet his/her needs and time commitments. For me personally, I was constantly on the go, so having the books and audios as portable as possible was an added bonus. While flying city to city, I would carry my textbook and listen to the audios. The multiple choice test bank is customizable and user-friendly to see which specific topics within the course outline are your weaker areas and to develop practice exams to tackle those problem areas. One of my favorite things about Gleim's program is the ability to email/contact experts to gain further explanations to questions that you may have while studying. The experts efficiently get back with you with additional information to help you succeed. The Gleim team are personable and have a genuine interest to help you succeed!
- Ashley Gibson, CMA, CPA
Gleim was a well structured program. It has difficult questions that prepared me for the exam better than the other programs I have used. The Test Prep provided questions for each chapter on my computer which helped greatly, simulating a real exam. I have communicated this to my peers that are also starting to study for their CMA. I would definitely use Gleim again.
- Edee Rennick, CMA
I passed my CMA Part 2 Exam. The study materials were very effective, especially:
(1) The Gleim Online MC practice is the same as the Prometric testing computer screen layout. When I took the CMA Exam, I felt like I was doing a practice at home (no surprise and no panic). I tracked and budgeted my time.
(2) Audio Review helped me to understand and remember the outlines of each study unit.
Thanks, Dr. Gleim!
I scheduled both parts of the CMA exam while attending graduate school, working full time, and raising a 3 year old son. It was obvious I was going to need some help preparing. I purchased the Gleim CMA study program and passed both parts on my first attempt. It would not have happened without the structure and materials that Gleim offered. Gleim provided me a study plan that I was able to follow so I could stay on task with each study unit. I was able to take the books with me to study in my free time and use the online testing to assure I had mastered the material. I would recommend this review system to anyone that is considering taking the exam and I intend on using it for CPE courses in the future!
- Audrey Belden, CMA
While both CMA Exams were challenging in their own ways, the Gleim CMA Study System provided me a practical study outline and thorough body of knowledge that helped me prepare for and pass both exams in a short period of time. Not only has the certification provided more recognition within mt company and industry, but it also helped hone existing skills in management accounting that have proved valuable for internal reporting to my company's shareholders. I would highly recommend this system to anyone considering taking this exam. I have just recently purchased the Gleim CPA Review System and will sit for all four parts of the CPA Exam in the next 6 months.
- Bradley Comm CMA, CTP, MBA
Excellent review material. Out of 100 multiple choice questions and 2 essay topics there was only 1 question that I had no clue about. All other topics I believe were thoroughly covered in the review material. I felt very comfortable with the material on the exam and many of the questions resembled the type of questions that were part of the practice exams in the study material. Overall I believe the study materials covered for part 1 did a great job of preparing me for the content on the part 1 exam.
- Gary Kulczynski
I passed the EA Part 1 Individuals today. Gleim materials are amazing. This makes 10 exams in a row passed with Gleim! 1 more and I am done.
- John Dykeman, CMA, CPA
I benefited from Gleim Review System in different ways. The book was very well structured with "to the point" explanations. The software is extremely beneficial as it enabled me to build my own hand-made exam and study sessions, with the ability to track my performance to a very detailed sub unit level. Having a feel for the exam environment by taking the full exam scenario, gave me an edge while taking the live test. The essays provided were also of an added value as I was able to easily reply to essays questions in a quick and professional manner. I truly encourage my friends and colleagues first to pursue the CMA certificate, and secondly, to use Gleim's products. I will consider Gleim again for the CIA certificate which I will be considering in the near future.
- Ayman Awada, CMA, Qatar
I am enormously proud to have passed the CMA exam, and to have achieved my second professional certification. I passed each one on the first shot. If it weren't for Gleim, I wouldn't have passed. Thank you so much, Gleim.
- Daniel Bradley, CPA, CMA
I followed the Gleim suggested timelines for my study sessions, and was able to follow them while working full-time. While I found the exam to be difficult, I was well prepared and passed part one on the first try, with plenty of points to spare. Follow the system, it works!
- Susan Heltsley
The Gleim program helped me to identify my weaknesses and improve upon them. The suggested practice of utilizing the first 15 minutes of the exam (practice screen) to dump data onto my sheet helped me to calm my nerves and served as a great reference sheet during the exam. Before the exam, I reviewed the concepts I struggled with and wrote those formulas down on my data sheet to memorize for exam day.
Furthermore, the "True and False" section of the study materials helped me to understand the theory behind the concepts, making difficult subjects easier to grasp. I also enjoyed the slides, because they were relaxing to listen to and I believe helped me to retain information. I scored a 310 on part 1 twice, using only CMA materials. After using Gleim once, I scored a 420 and passed! I have finally passed both exams. Thanks Gleim!
- Carey C.
I passed part I back in January, first try. Only used Gleim. Thanks, looking forward to passing part II here in the near future.
- Andrew Boll
I have used Gleim review course to pass both the CMA and CIA exams. Perfect course - just what you need to pass!!!
- Tarek Bastami
I completed my graduation in 1990, but thereafter I could not continue my studies, but last year after a 21 year gap, I decided to restart my studies and registered myself for the CMA. After more than a 20 year gap it was quite difficult for me to reconnect myself with the books, but I must say Gleim made my task and life easy and today I have cleared my CMA. I am a CMA now and all that is due to Gleim which made my studies easy. Thank you Gleim and its team.
- Umesh Kumar Tulsiani, CMA, Kuwait
I have only positive things to say about your CMA study package. I followed the system and felt very well-prepared. I will definitely recommend to students considering the CMA -- what could be a better endorsement than the guy who just used it and passed?
- David Mona, CMA, Associate Professor of Accounting at Champlain College
I know that I wouldn't have passed the Part 1 exam without these materials. Gleim does an excellent job of helping with time management and making sure that all the material that will be on the exam is covered if you follow the study guidelines. Thank you for making such a great program. Well worth the money spent, and I'm diving into studying for Part 2 now!
- Brenda Turner
Thank you to Gleim and their team for helping me in my endeavor to pass the CMA exams. The study materials were a great guide in helping me determine how much to study and the appropriate subject matter. You can get through all of the materials efficiently and effectively by following the steps outlined in their program. I would recommend their materials to anyone interested in passing the CMA exams. Thanks, Gleim!
- Tyler Griggs, CMA
In 2008, our company made it clear that they preferred all Accounting/Finance Heads to have a CPA or CMA. When I found out that one of my competing managers at one of our subsidiaries had a CMA, I knew I had to get this certification. Reality kicked in when I went to the IMA website and saw the requirements to pass the CMA exams. I haven't been a student in a long time and my mind isn't as malleable as it once was, coupled with a demanding career, and not willing to sacrifice family time and commitments.... Ugh. How would this be possible? Nevertheless, I set out with my self study plan and grabbed my intermediate accounting textbook and dove in. It only took a couple days to realize "self study" was not going to work and I hoped against hope for an online study program--and that is when I found Gleim. I dabbled with a couple of the other brands but Gleim was better suited to my needs. I made a conscious decision to fully embrace Gleim's recommended study approach and not pollute the process with my entrenched study habits. My commitment was rewarded when I passed the first exam. Passing the first part, gave me confidence that I can actually do this. Sure enough, after one more winter and spring of stress and brain strain, I threw myself at the Gleim program once again for the second and final part--and the rest is history. Thank you Gleim, and especially thank you for the CMA test prep software. I spent tireless hours pounding through practice exams using this tool and concentrating on the questions that I got wrong. That helped immensely.
- Jeff Eiseman, CMA, MBA
One of the critical elements for successfully completing a certification program is choosing the right exam prep system. For me, I knew I had to find a system that was geared toward my busy schedule and study approach. I'm a busy professional and don't have extra time to a attend class or read numerous text books. When I ultimately found the Gleim system, I knew I had found the right study program for me. As I started seeing successful results when I completed the CMA certification, I continued to use the Gleim system to complete the CFM, CIA, and CPA credentials. I'm proud to say that I now have four major accounting certifications and could not have done it without Gleim. What's truly unique about the Gleim system is the variety of study options included with the overall system. Users have the option to use hard copy, online, or audio materials. For me, the online materials were very convenient as I could access the data much quicker. Plus, when I'm traveling, having the online or audio option was much more convenient to hauling around heavy books. A huge plus. The greatest benefit achieved by using the Gleim Review System is obtaining my accounting certifications. Having these credentials has given me a huge boost in my confidence level in working as a controller and interacting with my peers. It helped provide me with the credibility I needed to succeed in my profession! I would absolutely recommend Gleim to others. Best system on the planet. I would use the Gleim Review System a hundred times over again. They have refined and perfected their system over the years where it's become nearly impossible to fail an exam if a candidate follows your guidance and puts in the prep time.
- Robert Crow, CPA, CMA, CFM, CIA
I purchased the Gleim program for the two part CMA exam. Not only was the product an excellent quality, but the staff was extremely helpful from technical questions to general support. I would highly recommend the program to anyone with a basic knowledge of the subject matter.
- Heather Nusbaum, CMA
I passed! Scaled score of 410 on part 2. Thank you so much for all your help. I could not have done it without Gleim's study materials. They helped me brush up on the parts of the material that I was unfamiliar with--especially in the finance. I will keep my books as a memento of my efforts and will encourage all future exam aspirants to 'Go Gleim'.
- Edward R. Walker, PhD, CPA, CMA
I began studying for my Part 1 exam (scheduled June 1st) in early May and for the Part 2 exam (scheduled June 29th) in early June and thankfully I passed both parts in one testing window. The Gleim materials truly played a huge part in my ability to pass on the first try within such a short time period
- Jill Halverson, CMA, Assistant Professor of Business
I have taken the Gleim Review course in preparation for both my CMA (Certified Management Accountant) exams. I passed both exams for the first time, and I become one of the Youngest Certified Management Accountant by passing CMA exams at the age of just 20.Thanks to the awesome instructions, organized materials and very helpful sample questions. Thank you for preparing me for these difficult exams and for your encouragement and support to succeed! As one of the Youngest Certified Management Accountant I highly recommend this preparation to anyone taking their certification exams.
- Kumail Ahmed, Pakistan
Thank you for helping me make the CMA exams a success! I cannot thank you more for the everlasting support and encouragement that made it possible for me to even attempt a feat like the CMA! Gleim material is suitable for the time crunch that candidates experience. The Gleim group was always proactive in providing explanations whenever I needed. Thanks a lot, Gleim!
I was just informed I received The ICMA Bronze Medal for the January-February 2012 testing window. The Gleim materials were excellent. They helped me pass by dedicating less than 100 hours of study which I think is quite amazing. I will recommend Gleim to anyone who needs to study for CMA!
- Saif Lalani, CMA
I wanted to thank the entire Gleim team for my success on the CMA exam. I passed both parts on the first try with scores of 450 and 430, and I know I couldn't have done so without the Gleim system. The study material is excellent. When I took the CMA exam it felt almost as if I was doing another practice session in Gleim because the system looks just like the one used on the actual exam and the questions are of equal difficulty as well as very similar to those on the real exam. Add all this with the help and explanations I received when I didn't understand study questions and you can see just how much the Gleim system did for me. I'm not sure if I am going to take the CPA exam or not, but I do know one thing; if I do, I will choose Gleim to prepare.
- Mat Maloney, CMA
I successfully passed both Parts I and II of the CMA Exam using the Gleim Review System. I truly believe Gleim's focused concentration on the critical information prepared me for successful completion of the exam. I utilized the full system that included listening to the Audios for each study unit, reading the materials, taking the practice tests/exams in the books and online tests. The online quizzes and reviews were interactive and allowed me to focus on the questions I answered incorrectly with explanations of why answers were wrong as well
as why the correct answer was correct. I feel my time studying was utilized efficiently, which was the recipe for success. I would definitely recommend the Gleim Review System for anyone pursuing the CMA Exam.
- Melissa Pratt, CMA
The Gleim CMA Review System was thorough, accurate, easy-to-use, informative, and robust. All of the written lecture notes and books were relevant to the real exam content and learning outcome statements, and the test bank really enforced the practical application of the materials. If you use this system diligently and
really understand the materials as suggested by Gleim, the actual exam will not be a surprise and you will pass the CMA. No doubts. I would absolutely tell friends about Gleim. As a matter of fact, I have already told several! I am a big fan, and will continue to support Gleim in any way possible for its CMA course. I would use Gleim for any certification course it offers,
particularly the CPA and CIA. Actually, I used Gleim CPA materials to complement my other learning materials for the CPA, and it definitely helped. I feel that the additional Gleim questions
for the CPA very much reinforced the concepts and was very affordable. Well worth it!
- Joe Mathew, CMA, CPA
I had tried other products and was very disappointed when I took the test and realized that all the time and money I had invested was not effective. Gleim's study materials, by far, were the most effective, efficient tool that I used to pass my exams.
- Judy Moose, CMA
I was bound and determined to pass the CMA, but without the Gleim review course I wouldn't have. I tried doing it on my own, and I tried an instructor-led course that was a disaster, Gleim was the answer for me!!!
- Gerri DeRubies, CMA
I wanted to thank you for developing an excellent package for the CMA exam. Gleim helped me to get ready and to pass both parts in one testing window (September/October 2011). The study material was organized in a very logical manner and the practice tests were outstanding.
- Stani Kantcheva, CPA, CMA
I used the Gleim materials to prepare for the 4-part CMA exam. The Gleim materials were effective, educational, and are a continuing resource. I recommend the Gleim company and the resources that they provide.
- Allen Hobbs, CMA
Dec 14 2011--Date I found out I passed Part 2 of the CMA exam. I passed Part 1 in June 2011. This day will be remembered for a long time as it is a personal goal fulfilled. I solely used Gleim materials to study for both parts of this exam. I liked having a variety of study options, audio, visual, book and online resources. Thank you for a great study program!!
- Kristina Mueller, CMA
Today I found out that I passed the final part 2 of the CMA exam. I passed both parts of the CMA exam on the first try using your CMA Review materials. I got a 400 on Part 1 and a 390 on Part 2. Thank you Gleim! Great CMA test preparation products!
- Daniel Byrd, CMA
The Gleim Knowledge Transfer System is the most efficient and effective use of your personal time when preparing for the CMA exam. You have to get exam ready, become the best problem solver you can be under the duress of rigid time constraints. The exams test real world practical accounting and finance knowledge and your analytical skills with almost no emphasis on financial bookkeeping rules (assumed knowledge). The failure rate for exam writers is quite high, make a 100% commitment to the Gleim System and your success will be guaranteed!
- Chris Vincent, CMA
The Gleim study series is worth every penny. The study materials examples and problems are excellent and some of the toughest things you will see on the exam. I would recommend Gleim as a primary study resource for any candidate who is sitting for the exam. I tried a few of the other products but none came close to the Gleim study material. Thanks for giving me the tools to master the material and obtain my CMA!
- Joe Ciarico, CMA
I have used the Gleim for EA and CMA and I was successful on both and will surely recommend you to any one.
- Sony Joseph
I found that if I followed the Gleim program as suggested, I scored very well. In all, I took three parts of the CMA, the first two under the old format and the second part under the new format. I passed each part the first time. Having the CDs, book, slideshow and practice exams gave me so many options for studying, it was extremely helpful. A day or two before each exam I would take a 100 question practice quiz to try to replicate the exam. That seemed to help me manage my time on the actual exam.
- Kristy Jorgenson, CMA
Gleim was an essential part of preparing for the CMA examination. I started taking the CMA exam in 2008 and used Gleim study materials for sections 2 and 3 of the prior (4-part) format. After I passed those sections, on the first time thanks to Gleim, I took some time to pass the CPA exam. With the CPA examination passed in June of 2010, I went back to finish the CMA. By this time the IMA had changed exam formats. Gleim was specifically important during preparation for the CMA Transition exam. There is such wide breadth of knowledge required to pass that portion of the exam. I remember being overwhelmed with the content but Gleim broke each area down into their essentials in a way which was easy to comprehend and more importantly, easy to remember during the exam.
- Travis Young, CPA, CMA
I found out this weekend that I passed Part 2 of the CMA with a score of 400. Thanks for your help throughout the process. The Gleim system definitely prepared me well to take both parts of the exams. Thanks again.
- Nathaniel Ravo
I initially used Gleim for the Certified Internal Auditor Examination (CIA). I felt that it was easy to use and was helpful at pointing me in the direction that I needed to study to successfully complete the examination. As a result, I completed every part on the first try. Subsequent to that, I used Gleim to study for the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) examination and successfully completed each part on the first try. I think both preparation materials saved me a significant amount of time and energy which was important to me since I was working full time. I also found the Gleim staff both helpful and easy to deal with. I recommend anyone who is serious in obtaining professional certifications to use Gleim.
- William Scarborough CPA, CMA, CIA, CFE, CVA
I passed Part 2 of the new-format CMA exam on my first attempt! I can't thank Gleim enough for the support and resources provided to me during my preparation. I've now completed the testing portion of the CMA certification process. I did 100% of the Gleim program. I've no doubt that anyone interested in attaining CMA certification can pass this rigorous exam if they commit to the Gleim materials. It's nice to feel over-prepared while sitting for a challenging exam like the CMA. The Gleim materials gave me the confidence to succeed, even in the face of my own self-doubt. I recommend Gleim to everyone who asks me about accounting exam prep.
- Chris Bisha, MBA, CMA
I couldn't have been happier with the Gleim system. The people at Gleim are exceptionally organized and knowledgeable. Gleim really wants you to succeed! Without Gleim there is no way I would have passed both parts of the rigorous CMA examination. Gleim is the elite product on the market. Ensure your success by signing up with the best in the business.
- Michael McWherter, CPA,CMA,CFE
I used Gleim to study for the CMA exam last summer. Putting in about 50-100 hours of study per part I was able to pass each of the four parts on the first try. In addition to passing, I earned the highest cumulative score for the four-part test for Summer 2010 and will be awarded the Johnson & Johnson Gold Medal by the IMA. I couldn't have done it without the Gleim materials and strongly recommend them to anyone who wants to pass the exams.
- Sean Gaffney, CMA
I found Gleim to be much more straight forward and efficient to use than other training materials. In fact, after reviewing my Gleim
material with a few friends, they switched to Gleim. Gleim helped me pass with 4 up and 4 down.
- Mitch Tobias, CMA
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Gleim for the comprehensive and well organized study materials that you produce. Thanks
to the Gleim CPA and CMA Review Systems, I have successfully completed the CPA and CMA exams, both within a single 18 month period. The combination of book, test prep software, audio CDs for my long daily commute, and online studies (inclusive of a live personal counselor), provided the information and training necessary to understand and pass the exams.
- Eric Quattlebaum, CPA, CMA
Thank you so much for the fast turnaround and the materials. My students will greatly benefit from them. You are a great organization to work with.
- David Dahlberg, CPA, Associate Professor at St. Catherine University
I used Gleim to study for the Part 4 CMA exam. Gleim materials were easy to use, informative, and very effective. I passed Part 4 on the first try with a very comfortable score.
- Stepan Babayan, CMA
I was very impressed with the quality of the materials and the effectiveness of the learning outlines. I particularly enjoyed the structure of each study unit since each had variety (visual presentation, multiple choice, true false, etc.). The support from my Personal Counselor was phenomenal.
- Nathan Alger
I decided to contact other CMA-students in the forum and to ask their assistance. A girl from Poland advised me to take my attention to Gleim's materials and namely CMA Gleim Online T - Transition Exam. I looked through the mentioned material and loved the content and the price. Apart the advantage of this resource was its comprehensibility and conciseness. It took me 3 months to study. In October, 2010, I passed the T-exam at last. I am very happy and thankful to the Gleim team for their work. They helped me to pass the last CMA exam and obtain CMA certificate. And all of this became possible due to the well-defined understanding of the students' needs and wishes, well selected tasks and their solutions, and concise and most effective writing materials.
- Olga Timanovskaya, CMA, Moscow
I would like to thank Dr.Gleim & his team for the excellent CMA Review System. I recently earned the CMA designation and relied solely on Gleim to get through the exams. In my experience managing time is the crucial factor on the CMA exams, and the [Gleim] Test Prep software trains you adequately. I would vouch that Gleim is indeed the
complete resource for success!!
- Varni Jathunanthanan, CMA
I recently passed all 4 parts of the CMA exam on my first attempt using the Gleim Review System. I had been out of school for many years and the Gleim system provided me with excellent study tools to achieve success. The study materials were exceptionally organized, easy to follow, challenging, and made learning fun. I cannot thank Gleim enough for their excellent products. I have now decided to continue to use Gleim in preparation for the CPA exam. Thanks to Gleim my career goals, which I once only considered a dream, are now turning into reality.
- John G. Dykeman, CMA
I passed the 4th part of the CMA exam. This was my 3rd attempt at the final exam, but the first time I used Gleim. I'm glad that I decided to try your product. The book and the website were perfect for helping me gain the knowledge and problem-solving skills I needed to finally pass the exam. Thank you!
- Erick Kjellberg, CMA
I would like to thank all the people at Gleim! I recently passed my CMA Part 4, and completed my journey to pursue multiple licenses, CPA, CIA and
CMA. These materials are well-organized and easy to follow. Try to pursue multiple licenses just like I did after being inspired by Dr. Gleim!!
- Li-Yih Chiu, CPA, CIA, and CMA
I used Gleim for Part 3 and Part 2 of the CMA exam and passed both parts, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I think Gleim Online quizzes and true/false questions are really valuable. I love the idea that study notes are very condensed, which saves a lot of reading time. Great job, thanks again.
- Jurate Baubliene
I stuck to my schedule and followed the study sequence recommended. I went into the test nervous, but confident, and came out victorious. Your system worked for me!
- Laura Keehn
It was a very long and hectic journey but I was able to endure and pass each and every CIA and CMA exam on the first attempt by relying solely on Gleim. My study plan was simple! The more time I invested in your products, the more confident I felt and the closer I became to accomplishing my goals, and now it's finally over! I'm certified! Thank you for all your infinite help and support. I couldn't have done it without Gleim!
- Mohamad A. Mneimneh, CMA, CIA
Thank you for putting together such a great tool for the CMA exams. With the Gleim CMA Review System, I was able to pass all of the CMA parts that I took on my first try. The convenience of being able to use the online, PC, and windows mobile versions meant I could practice questions anywhere, and helped me stay on track even when I couldn't find dedicated study time.
Gleim was instrumental in building my confidence to pass the exams. Because of the broad set of topics that the CMA exam covers, getting the practice with the Gleim system helped to make sure that I had covered all topics that would be graded on the exams.
I can't thank you enough for having such a great system and I am looking forward to adding the CMA designation to the CPA that I have ( I used the Gleim system for my CPA as well)! For anyone asking me about CMA or CPA study materials, I will always let them know that Gleim is the way
- Peter Temko, CPA
I used the Gleim program for Parts 3 and 4 of the CMA exam, and just received word that I've passed Part 4 and completed the program. Gleim materials were great, and the support was always prompt and courteous.
