I don't usually post reviews, but I wanted to post a review for this study guide since I just took the CMA test this morning and passed and the information is still fresh in mind :) This book was my main study tool. I started out a couple of weeks ago by reading each chapter (there are 17) and doing the practice questions that followed. This book provides a comprehensive review of material as compared to other books. I also bought the CMA Exam Preparation Study guide (another review book on Amazon) and even though that book provided good information, it was definitely not as comprehensive as the Kaplan book. I did find that the majority of questions on the real exam were covered by information in Kaplan. If you spend time studying this book, you will do well. Just as an FYI- I was scoring in the 85% range on questions in this book. I did purchase the AAMA practice test on their website (I highly recommend you do this) and scored 95% on that test after studying Kaplan. I found the actual test to be very similar in difficulty level to the Kaplan questions- maybe slightly easier. I did also do the questions in the CMA Exam Preparation Study Guide book and found those to be much more difficult and not as indicative of questions on the actual test. The other recommendation I have is that you purchase the CMA Smart Exam Prep app. I used the app throughout the couple of weeks to answer questions (there are about 200) and found them to be excellent review. There were many questions on the actual test that were very similar. So I highly recommend you also get this app. In Summary, study the Kaplan book, do the practice test, do the AAMA practice test and answer the questions on the app and I think you will be prepared to pass the exam. Good luck!
