She believed that CMA certification is necessary with her greater interest in accounting. The shorter time commitment is also a pull factor.
Soon after she started, Fifa got a new job that required additional time and commitment. After some struggles for a few weeks, she decided to put CMA on hold.
Fifa’s CMA Exam Study Journey
Her first post. Fifa talked about how she finally decided to for the CMA exam after considering three options – CGMA, CMA and CPA.
She shared her impression of Gleim CMA Review materials — the great, the good and the could-be-better.
Fifa defined the term “honest studying”, the issues she encountered during the studying and her progress so far.
Fifa wrote about her struggles on identifying weaknesses in certain topics, and finding ways to be more mature in her CMA preparation journey.
In relation to her post on the CMA study, she talked about her study techniques, pointing out the importance of giving more time to study.
Fifa admitted that the studying has been tough. Her new job added the challenge to balance study and work.
After a few weeks of breaks, Fifa couldn’t resist to restart her CMA studying again. She found a tutor who introduced her to a helpful seminar at a university. She shared her findings here.
Continuing her previous blog, she shared more findings from the seminar, including which review course the experts believe is the best, how CMAs can utilize the title for career development, and the possibility of CMA in Arabic.
Fifa is too busy to write regularly for us, but may blog once in a while when she has the time. My best wishes for Fifa’s success!
