What is ExamReady?

Exam candidates frequently ask, "Am I ready to take the exam?" HOCK's ExamReady™ progress bar helps you determine when you are ready.

How does it work?

  • ExamReady™ starts at 0 and counts up to 360, which is the passing score for the CMA exam.
  • Your ExamReady™ progress will increase with the completion of study units, videos, MCQs, essays, and mock exams.
  • You are in a good position at 230 to start your Final Review.
  • When ExamReady™ reaches 360, you are prepared to take your exam with confidence.

How do I see my ExamReady™ progress?

ExamReady™ is available to students who have CMA Review Complete materials, and to those who have purchased both the CMA Review Standard and CMA Videos. ExamReady™ shows on the Personal Study Plan in the PassMap.

What is the Personal Study Plan?

The Personal Study Plan is the latest addition to PassMap - HOCK's topic by topic learning system - that will guide you week by week through your studies based on your target exam date. If your exam date changes, the study plan will adapt your study schedule accordingly.

How does the Plan work?

We know that your study schedule changes every week, so your Personal Study Plan:

  • Is based on weeks rather than days.
  • Stays constantly updated based on your progress.
  • Shows you how much time you need to study each week to be ready for your exam date.
  • Automatically adjusts your weekly study time if you fall behind or get ahead.
  • Keeps you on track to pass your exam.

How do I set up my Plan?

The Personal Study Plan is available for CMA Parts 1 and 2. Students with the CMA trial can also set up a full study plan, and it will carry over when purchasing the HOCK CMA Review.

PassMap 2.0
HOCK is pleased to announce the release of PassMap 2.0 for CMA Parts 1 and 2. Both Parts are now available in My Studies.

PassMap 2.0 includes:

  • Shorter study units that cover only one topic each and include a study time estimate.
  • A resume feature that takes you right to where you left off.
  • A Resources section with all of the information about studying for the CMA exams in one place.
  • A more modern interface that is easier to navigate.
  • Easier navigation on mobile devices.

The original PassMap will remain available for the time being and students who want to continue with original PassMap are welcome to do so. MCQ and Video progress is saved independently of the PassMap, so students are welcome to switch at any time it is convenient to take advantage of the PassMap 2.0 layout and features.

If you have any questions about PassMap 2.0 or need any help using the materials or PassMap please contact us and we will be glad to help.
