ICMA Gold Medal Winners

  • The Gleim Premium CMA Review System was instrumental in my winning the ICMA Gold Medal for achieving the highest score in the Jan-Feb 2017 testing window, largely because of Gleim’s phenomenal test bank with adaptive learning technology and accurate exam emulation. The video lectures were instructive, the books were concise, and the presentation of the material was well-organized, but it was the online test bank, providing the ability to create, take, and review practice exams and study sessions covering any and all exam topics of my choice…

  • I took both sections of the CMA exam during the 2015 May/June testing window. I had just graduated from college and had 2 months of free time until I started work. I wanted to use this narrow window of time to work towards my CMA designation, and knew that choosing the right study materials would be very important in achieving this goal. After doing a bit of research online I decided to use Gleim. I am pleased with the decision I made.

  • In the CMA exam window September/October 2014, I achieved the highest score out of all test takers. The foundations of this result were a thorough understanding of the topics as well as practice in tackling the multiple-choice questions. In both areas, Gleim products were perfectly useful to me. With the books I got general information about the exam as well as specific exam taking strategies. Furthermore, the content was easy to learn given the well-outlined units with definitions, explanations, sample questions and sample essays.

  • The CMA offers a variety of benefits – professional, networking, salary – so I decided to pursue the credential. I purchased the Gleim CMA Parts 1 and 2 and could not have been happier with the decision. The text made the content easy to read and comprehend, with preparatory questions sprinkled in at just the right times to reinforce key points. The Test Prep Online was invaluable as a practice tool and diagnostic – I was able to readily assess whether or not I was prepared to take the exam using this tool.

    Gold Medal
  • I used the excellent CMA review materials from Gleim to prepare for my CMA examinations and received the ICMA Gold Medal for achieving the highest scores in the world in the May-June 2012 testing window. Gleim’s CMA study package offers several key features that I found very useful: first, Gleim’s textbooks introduce key contents in a succinct and easy to understand manner. Second, the online practice questions reinforce the key concepts and techniques in a format that is as close to the actual CMA exam experience as possible.

    Gold Medal
  • 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.

  • The Gleim review course provides a robust mechanism to prepare for the CMA exams in a user-friendly way. The online materials coupled with vivacious lectures not only gives insights into the wide course content but also facilitates easier/deeper understanding of complex topics. The course is relentlessly intuitive, encouraging students to improve their scores with each review question.

  • The Gleim CMA Review was foundational to my success on the CMA Exam. The Gleim books laid out the material in an order that made sense, and helped me build my knowledge of relevant topics. The examples in the chapters and practice questions were very similar to the questions that I received on the exam, from wording to content.

    Bronze Medal
  • The Gleim CMA Review was a vital component of the strategy I used to successfully pass the CMA exam. Gleim’s study materials were succinct, easy to follow and accurately reflected the material tested during the exam. Furthermore, Gleim’s bank of study questions were worded exactly like the exam itself and had me prepared and on the lookout for “trick” questions.

  • 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!

  • With the support of my local IMA chapter, I decided to sit for the CMA exam during the summer break before my final semester. However, an unexpected trip scheduled later that summer meant I only had two and a half months to study and take both parts of the exam. I immediately began researching several of the prominent review courses and found that Gleim worked best for my style of learning.

  • I was wrapping up my third year of college when I decided to sit for the CMA exam. I began studying for the CMA exam in the middle of May after classes were finished and sat for both exams within a six-week time period. Gleim’s Review Books and Test Prep were instrumental tools that I used on my way to being awarded the Priscilla S. Payne Student Performance Award during the May-June 2012 testing window.

  • I was in the first semester of my senior year of college when I was introduced to the IMA and the CMA exam through the IMA’s Student Leadership Conference. I decided that during winter break that year I would study for and take the CMA exam. To achieve that goal I used Gleim’s CMA exam review materials. The CMA Review books expertly outlined all the material that the exam covered and the example questions in the back of each chapter reinforced the concepts.

  • Good study materials are of course essential to grasp the CMA curriculum. But personally, practice was the key. Practice helped me gain the knowledge and understanding to solve even the most difficult questions. Practice reveals your weaknesses and will show you where to put additional effort. Practicing with as many questions possible will prepare you to deal with the time pressure during the CMA exams.

Gleim CMA Customer Success Stories

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.
