    Hello all,
    I am looking at purchasing a review course to help me with study for the exam.  I see Gleim, Surgent, Becker that seems to be good options.... Any suggestions, or comments on which one I should go with?

    Use any of them as long as they are approved material and valid for the coming exam. Once full syllabus is studied once, then Focus more on practicing MCQs and reviewing the  Exam support module provided by IMA

    Hi Isabelle,
    I haven't used Surgent and Becker (Becker's offering is relatively new), but have used Wiley, Gleim and Hock and can say that they all have great materials. Would highly recommend signing up for a trial period with each of them to review whether you like their offering (i.e. textbook, instructional videos, supplemental materials, mobile app, etc.). In any case, any one of these self-study courses will be sufficient in passing the CMA exam. You just have to try them out and choose the one you like best. Out of these, I would say Hock has the best value for money offering, as it is priced a bit lower compared to others. But just to note that Wiley and Gleim have also lowered (and began offering larger discounts) ever since Becker started offering CMA study course materials in 2021. 

    best regards.

    I ended up choosing Gleim and like it a lot. I compared all options last year and made a little decision analysis, highlighting favorable or negative attributes of each.
    Gleim, Hock, and Wiley were the leading choices.

    Also, if you have time, you can wait until Black Friday for some really good savings. 

    This is also a helpful site that compares for you and offers some of the best discount codes:
