    Yes, you do and the review system depends on your background and personality type that you will need. I am using gleim but I have educational in accounting and I am an english speaker. If you do not have a strong accounting back ground and you are not an english speaker I would not recommend gleim. If you are english is decent, I would go with wiley. If your english is poor I would go with hock because they go over essay questions frequently.

    I am thinking of purchasing Gleim also yet my company is paying for it so I want to make the best choice as I do not want to waste their money. I was wondering how you like it so far, as it seems to me the best fit for my experience level as well?

     I like it however with that being said I choose it specifically because i knew the multiple choice questions would be challenging  and I would be prepare on test day and I was I passed part 1 in October. I take part two in Feburary so I can really speak on that section just yet but for part one I had seen everything in my test on my review system  I must warn you gleim in my opinion does not teach you the material it Is truly a review so you already need to have somewhat of a strong background in accounting/finance. Also, multiple choice  questions in gleim can be very difficult so that could overwhelm some people.  I hope this helps.

    Hi, I am using CMA Exam Academy and I am quite comfortable with it.

    However, as Kritrina pointed out rightly, the selection of the course material would differ person to person and also from course provider to course provider.

    We as students don't have a clear picture of which one to opt for with so many of them existing in the market and therefore are caught in a dilemma of which one to go for.

    Going to be honest here, I wasn't a huge fan of Wiley when I was studying for the CPA exam so I ended up switching to Becker review material (paid for by my previous employer), but now I actually like using Wiley to study for the CMA exam.

    Like most of the candidates have expressed here, it really depends on your learning style so I'd highly recommend you to take advantage of their free trial session to get a good sense for each of the review course providers and decide for yourself. What works for someone may not necessarily work for you.

    I hope that helps!
