Entrance Examination Syllabus Reference Material

The purpose of this reference material is to assist you in reviewing your technical knowledge of selected topics listed in the CMA Entrance Examination Syllabus. The questions illustrate the range in type and depth of knowledge that may be tested in CMA Entrance Examination questions, but they do not represent simulations of the style and composition of CMA Entrance Examination questions. This material contains a selection of problems and cases as well as their solutions, most of which focus on a few related topics. Some, however, are teaching cases that integrate several Syllabus topics. You are cautioned that the set of illustrative questions in this material does not cover the entire range of Syllabus requirements. It would be a mistake to conclude that in the next CMA Entrance Examination the omitted topics are less important or less likely to occur than any other.
