CMA Part 1 Textbook and Questions Update July 2018 – for 2019 CMA Exams

The CMA Part 1 Textbook, Questions, and Flash Cards have been updated with all of the current accounting standards that will be tested on the CMA exams beginning in January 2019, including the new revenue recognition standard. A detailed list of changes is not available because the changes, particularly where revenue recognition is concerned, were extensive throughout all of Section A. There are no significant changes to the syllabus, accounting standards, or textbook in Sections B through E. Current students can access the updated materials in My Studies.

Updated videos for changed topics in Section A are coming soon and will be posted in My Studies as they are recorded.

Note: The newer accounting standards covered in the July 2018 update will not be tested until the January/February 2019 testing window. Candidates studying for the September/October 2018 exams should continue to use the previous version of the materials, which are all still available in My Studies through October.

    I want to sit the CMA part 1 in October this year; can I make it because i am just beginning to study?

    If you have enough time to study between now and October, yes, it is not too late to start. You need to plan about 150 hours of studying for each part of the exam. You have about 70 until the end of October. If you can study 2 hours a day, then you will have time. Most people take 4-6 months to prepare for each part.
