How do you become Exam Day ReadySM?

Before you take Part One or Part Two of the exam, you must complete the following:

  • 80 percent of Becker's lectures in each module 
  • Correctly answering 80 percent of multiple-choice questions and essays in the practice section of each module
  • Receiving a score of 50 percent or higher on both Becker Simulated Exams and Mini Exams. 

You only need to complete the above list for the section of the exam you're taking. So, if you're taking Part One of the CMA Exam, you'll want to make sure you've met the above list for Part One before you test.
