Multiple-Choice Question Tips
None of the CMA exams are all theoretical, nor are any of them all calculations. All of the exams will require you to know formulas and to do various calculations. In each exam, there will also be some questions that are theoretical, however, and will take less time to answer. It is generally best to go through the multiple-choice questions once, doing the questions that you can answer quickly and skipping the ones that will take longer. When you finish that, then you will have a chance to view the numbers of the questions that you have skipped.

About half the time, you will see immediately what you have been doing wrong and you will be able to answer it right away. Finally, use the keyboard instead of the mouse to select your answer and move to the next question. It is really much faster than trying to hit that little circle with your mouse pointer. This will save you a few seconds on each question. Even if it saves you...
