The CMA Part 1 Study Materials have been updated, and all of the updated materials are available for current students to download in My Studies.
Changes in this December 2017 update include:
- Textbook: Information covering old accounting standards that are no longer tested was removed, topics were re-ordered to follow the LOS order, and some long examples were removed or shortened to focus on the core principles and concepts tested on the exam.
- Videos: Several videos were re-recorded to reflect changes in accounting standards.
- ExamSuccess, Essays, and Mock Exams: Questions that included previous accounting standards have been updated, and some questions were re-categorized to match the new textbook.
- Study Plan: Where necessary, the study plan was updated to reflect the latest updates to the textbooks, questions, and videos.
None of the changes are major, and if you are currently studying Part 1, you do not need to re-study anything. If possible, you can switch to the new textbook when you reach a major new topic, but the previous book can still be used for the exams in 2018 if that is most convenient for you. If you have any questions about these changes and how they relate to your studies, please contact us and we will be glad to assist you.
