HOCK CMA Study Plans

Studying for and passing the CMA Exams is a mission that requires dedication and hard work. From our experience at HOCK with thousands of candidates, we know that planning makes this process much easier.

How much time do I need to study?

There isn’t one “right” answer to this question. Our Study Plans provide guidelines for how much to study in terms of weeks, assuming that you study 8-10 hours per week and have a basic background in accounting. Depending on your personal and professional obligations, and your previous experience with the exam topics, you can easily adjust these plans to be shorter or longer.

While studying, there will be some topics that you find difficult. HOCK students can always contact us and we will help you as much as possible. Also, keep in mind that you do not need to have 100% knowledge of 100% of the exam content in order to pass. At certain points you will need to decide whether the extra time spent learning something is worth the extra knowledge gained.
