Textbook (Printable PDF)

The Textbook is the core of the HOCK CMA Exam Preparation and is easy-to-read using clear and straightforward language. Our textbooks are comprehensive and detailed with complete examples so that you can fully understand the concepts regardless of your work experience or how long you have been out of school; there is no need to purchase other textbooks. The Manufacturing Input Variances textbook sample is an excerpt from the current edition of our CMA Part 1 textbook. You can also download the CMA Textbooks’ Tables of Contents.

ExamSuccess Multiple-Choice Questions

ExamSuccess provides multiple-choice questions that test your knowledge of the concepts covered on the exam and includes two modes:

1) Study Sessions are not timed and provide you with feedback about each answer as you answer each question and at the end of your study session.

2) Exam Simulation Sessions are timed so that you can practice your time management and provide feedback only after the exam simulation has been completed.

Answer explanations are provided for both correct and incorrect answer choices in both types of sessions and your performance is tracked for each topic so that you can highlight any weak areas.

ExamSuccess is available for Windows and Mac computers and does not require Internet access after the initial registration, and in an online version that can be used on any Internet-connected device – any computer, any tablet, or any Smartphone.

As of November 2016, the number of questions in ExamSuccess is 1,420 for Part 1 and 1,118 for Part 2.

Essay Questions

While preparing for the CMA exams, you will use written-response essay questions in the same style and format as the current exam questions. Detailed answers are included for each question.

Electronic Flash Cards

The Electronic Flash Cards are a popular study tool that provide an interactive flash card experience by intelligently scheduling cards based on how well you already know the content of each card. Rather than simply acting like a big stack of flash cards in a digital pile, the Anki software gradually introduces new cards and provides an effective, efficient way to study without causing information overload. By mixing new cards and old cards at regular intervals, learning and retention are maximized. The Manufacturing Input Variances flash cards sample (requires Anki) gives you a sample of the flash cards that you can try.

As of March 2016, there are 691 flash cards for Part 1 and 563 for Part 2.

Mock Exam

The mock exam with new questions not used elsewhere in the study materials provides a measure for your exam readiness and is a solid review before taking the real exam.

Personalized Study Plan

The Study Plan guides you through what to focus on during the different weeks of study for each exam, but you can adapt it to fit your individual schedule using our online Personalized Study Plan. By selecting a date to begin studying and a target exam date, a Personalized Study Plan will automatically adjust the standard Plans to your schedule.
