LearnFirst step in your preparation is to start understanding and learning the concepts. Start taking subjects one by one following the time-table.Now what should be your method of studying?

  • First a fast reading of the chapter should be done. Usually one page should not be given more than 5 minutes
  • Second reading should be slower, understanding each topic clearly.
  • Once the reading is done all questions given in the book should be attempted. First attempt all questions without using any answers and then check all questions at the end
  • You should mark your questions in a special way. i.e. the questions which were correct in the first attempt should be crossed and there is no need to attempt these questions again…all other questions which were incorrect should be done on next revision and follow the same steps of crossing the correct questions at that time.

ReviseRevision is a very important part for achieving success in any exam. You remember only 20% of what you read after 24 hours, so multiple quick revisions are very necessary. See timetable for the frequency of revisions required.PracticePractice is the most important part of your preparation and should be given 100% focus. Once you have completed your first revision, it’s time to take mock test. mock test helps a lot in preparing you for exam day and also highlight your weak areas.Group StudyForming a study group helps in discussing queries and getting a better understanding of the subject. If you have friends taking CMA FOUNDATION exam, then you can form a study group with them or else you join an online forum for forming a discussion Group.Exam DayYou should be completely relaxed and rested for the final exam day. Now, when it comes to the exam hall most would get nervous and do certain things which might get you in trouble, like checking the answers with others, trying to copy, etc. Do not do those things, because it will cost you your future and the most important thing- Please take all the required stationary.
