About the Author Yen

Hello, I am Yen and I took a 2-year journey to study and complete the CMA exam. After some struggle with local coaching classes, I decided to self-study using Wiley CMA books. In this blog I want to share with you how I did it with my limited command in English. I passed the two parts on my first attempt.

    Hi Yen, I must say all of your blogs are very important for someone like me who is working and trying to manage study along with work. You have put it up in simple words and words of wisdom makes it worth to read all what you want to share. Best wishes to you.

  • Huy says:

    Hi chi Yen,
    I’m Huy from Vietnam, it’s great to know your journey to CMA through which you have definitely put a lot of effort and hard work. I am considering joining CMA next year and would love to hear your experience, it’s great if we can meet up in Saigon, Vietnam if you are available.
    All the best.

    Dear Yen (and Sarang as well as other students in VN),

    I am a foreigner currently living and working in Vietnam. After some research about the CMA certification, I am also interested in starting to study for CMA. It is quite relieving to know that the exams can be taken in Vietnam. However my background is Sciences (BSc n MSc) and I am not sure if I can just dive into Wiley and actually study for this thing.

    Are there any offline/online resources that are useful for people residing in Vietnam? It would be cool to be able to connect with others who are also studying for the CMA.
