Our Student Reviews

Hi Nathan, I am planning to take my CMA very soon… The Questions is: Do I need to attend any courses for that or the self-study tools are just enough? Given that I did my bachelors in Management and Economics…

 

 

Kavitha

How do you learn best? on your own or with an instructor? If the latter, I would recommend that you take a live class. If the former, a self-study course such as Gleim would be fine.

 

Sai

Gleim is great if you have an accounting background. If you don’t have one, Wiley would be the choice.
