The M-100 course, while recognized as fulfilling the educational prerequisite to establish CMCA eligibility, is not intended to be a CMCA preparatory course. Neither CAMICB nor CAI assert that completing the M-100 will enhance examination performance.
CMCA exam preparation tools and reference materials offered or suggested by CAMICB are presented as one component of candidate preparation for the CMCA examination.  The use and/or purchase of any preparatory or reference tool is entirely optional.  CAMICB does not assert that use of any single tool or combination of tools will enhance candidate performance.  CMCA candidates are encouraged to develop a personal study plan incorporating a wide range of study tools and reference materials.
