I passed both parts of the CMA exam in the Sept/Oct 2013 testing window. I also won a Certificate of Distinguished Performance for scoring one of the highest scores on the exam. I plan on attending the 2014 IMA Annual Conference in Minneapolis to accept the award. I used Gleim Study material for both parts. I decided to use Gleim based on reviews I read online which recommended Gleim for candidates who had an accounting background and who preferred to study on their own. The books and Test Prep prepared me very well… I did almost 3000 practice problems in total. The actual questions on the exam seemed easy in comparison to the Test Prep. Gleim is the most affordable and comprehensive review material out there. The illustrations are easy to follow and the Test Prep is awesome. You can identify your weaknesses and customize your test questions to improve on those areas. The recommended 75% proficiency level was fairly accurate. My average for the 3000 questions was around 80% and I scored in the top 1%.
