Have you heard of ExamMatrix CMA Review? They have been providing test prep software for accounting exam preparation for the last 20 years.
ExamMatrix CMA Product Offering
I would say a clear feature that sets them apart is the “Adaptive Learning” Software. I don’t have the data but I bet that most of their customers are attracted by this unique software capability.
1. The Only CMA Review program with Adaptive Learning Technology
The adaptive learning platform automatically identifies your weaker areas based on the performance of the practice questions. Then, the system feeds you more questions in these topics, and tracks the performance.
Instead of dwelling on topics you know anyway, or spending too much time manually marking the incorrect questions in review books, you can rely on this intelligent learning tool to focus on improving your weaker areas.
I have this walk-through video to show you how the platform looks and works:
2. Extensive Database with Full Explanation
ExamMatrix CMA offers over 2,400 multiple-choice questions, all with full text explanations. The question database is developed by a team of accounting professors with practical experience.
3. Over 80% Pass Rate
I cannot verify this percentage, but this is an impressive pass rate given the overall CMA exam pass rate is at the low 40%.
4. Pass or Refund Guarantee
This guarantee is available for all ExamMatrix’s test prep products. Customers need to spend a certain amount of time in the practice questions and attain 50% accuracy, together with other requirements, to get qualified. The requirements are reasonable in my opinion. It encourages candidates to make good use of the product before asking for a refund.
1. Not an Integrated and Guided CMA Review Course
ExamMatrix CMA is essentially a test prep software plus basic reference books. If you need explanation of concepts, study tips or talk to a personal counselor on technical accounting questions, ExamMatrix cannot provide this service.
2. Relatively Expensive
The complete set (part 1 + part 2) costs $599. In comparison, Gleim test prep software (plus books) costs only $290.
My Conclusion: Excellent Supplement
If you are looking for a guided review course, or an extensive review book covering all exam content, ExamMatrix may not be enough as a learning tool.
However, if you learn by working on practice problems, or you are looking for a supplement for practice questions, this could be an intriguing offer:
