CMA General (3)
No, you may take the exam Parts in any order (for example, take Part 2 before you take Part 1). This is true for the CMA, CPA, and CIA exams.
Yes, we offer payment plans on any materials $299 or more.
While our competitor’s payment plans are available only to US residents and require a credit check, our payment plan does not require a credit check and is available to students around the world. With the payment plan, you can choose an initial payment of 20%-50% of the purchase price and then pay the balance over 2-4 months.
From the IMA’s CMA Handook: Candidates are allowed to bring a small battery or solar powered electronic calculators restricted to a maximum of six functions – addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, square root, and percentage are allowed. The calculator must not be programmable and must not use any type of tape. Candidates can also use the Texas Instrument’s BA II Plus, HP 12c, or HP 12c Platinum calculators when taking the exams. The Hewlett- Packard 10BII is valid, but no longer available to purchase. Candidates will not be allowed to use calculators that do not comply with these restrictions.
Note from HOCK: The BA II Plus comes in a Financial and Professional version. The version allowed on the CMA exam is the Financial version.
We have some examples of basic calculators on our page dedicated to what calculators you can use on the CMA exams.
