CMA Exam – During the Exam Tips

By: PRC Staff

What should you focus on during the CMA Exam? Have you given much thought to that? Don’t overlook these essential tips to help you stay focused and confident during the CMA Exam.

  1. Read Everything.
    Make sure you read the question text and all answers, even if answer “a” looks like the correct answer.
  2. Answer all the Questions.
    If you attempt all questions and still can’t answer some questions, take an educated guess and answer them. There is no penalty on wrong answers.
  3. Funny Answers.
    These are usually incorrect.
  4. Time Management During the Exam.
    This is, by far, the most important skill for passing the exam. If you manage your time properly during the exam, you will have plenty of time to answer all questions and review them.
    Flag long questions, flag questions that need complicated calculations, and questions you don’t know the answer to. Once you’re done with easy and short questions, go back to the questions you flagged; you will have more time allocated for these questions, and you will have guaranteed that you have answered those easy and short questions.
  5. Don’t Change your Answers.
    If you are not 100% sure you need to change your answer to a certain questions, then don’t. Your first guess is usually the correct answer. Do not change it unless you are certain that you had selected a wrong answer. Wrong answers are mostly the result of not reading the question correctly.
