Tutorial Profile

This instructor-led tutorial by CA controller akademie will have a clearly defined structure and content covering all subjects of the CMA® Part 1 exam, that is administered through the worldwide network of Prometric Testing Centers.

David Fairchild, our instructor, is himself a CMA® and CPA® and is writing test questions for the CMA® exam. Students highly profit from his experience and excellent hints of how to take the exam. We particularly focus on US-specific topics which are different to the European approach and that are highly likely to be new and difficult to the students. In addition, the session will review the CMA® learning outcome statements to familiarize students for the contents of the CMA®. The students will be asked to review these statements and to reflect their existing knowledge. They will be exposed to exam situations and essay writing. This exposure will enable them to sit the CMA® exam immediately or, if appropriate, target their further learning efforts more effectively.
