      Hi Nader, Amani is no longer active here, but you can find her at linkedin (she posted her link in one of her blog posts). I am not sure if there is a specific way to register in Jordan, but supposedly everyone around the world registers online through IMA website here: http://www.imanet.org.

      For materials, Amani uses Gleim and you can find the online version here: https://ipassthecmaexam.com/gleim-cma-review/

      You might want to contact Gleim if you prefers a physical text book. Regards, Stephanie
