HOCK does not have a dedicated Mobile App; we make the materials accessible on all types of computers, tablets, and Smartphones without requiring an App. This allows us to focus on creating materials instead of keeping up with constantly changing mobile platforms.

However, we know that students like to answer practice questions while on the go, and through a partnership with Appitur HOCK does offer a CMA App and a CIA App with multiple-choice practice questions. The App is available for iOS and Android devices; search the store for “HOCK CMA” or “HOCK CIA” to locate the App.

The questions in the Apps are the same as in our ExamSuccess software and ExamSuccess Online.
