ExamSuccess Multiple-Choice Questions

ExamSuccess provides multiple-choice questions that test your knowledge of the concepts covered on the exam and includes two modes:

1) Study Sessions are not timed and provide you with feedback about each answer as you answer each question and at the end of your study session.

2) Exam Simulation Sessions are timed so that you can practice your time management and provide feedback only after the exam simulation has been completed.

Answer explanations are provided for both correct and incorrect answer choices in both types of sessions and your performance is tracked for each topic so that you can highlight any weak areas.

ExamSuccess is available online and can be used on any Internet-connected device – any computer, any tablet, or any Smartphone.

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 Online database.
