I Pass The CMA Exam!

My CPA Journey: Day 10


February 15, 2013

Need to work on MC #2 of SU2.

Moving On To SU3: Cost Allocation Techniques

My CMA journey: day 10

I am also starting SU3 today. This module covers cost allocation techniques such as absorption vs variable costing, joint product and by-product costing, overhead allocation and allocating service department costs. There are 7 sub-units and I expect to spend a fair amount of time going through each of them.

This exam content is also included in the CPA exam. For those who have recently taken BEC, you will be happy to know that cost accounting covered in BEC is essentially the same here.

    Hi Stephanie, I am only able to see your My CPA Journey blog upto Day 10. Is it because you have not uploaded the remaining yet or should I subscribe anything else? Thank you very much for your help.

      Hi Rajeev, you are right, didn’t have time to write it properly after that (writing the journal took more time than the studying)… but will find a day to organize my thoughts and rewrite it out for you all 🙂
