Hock CMA Weaknesses
1. No Money-Back Guarantee
Among Gleim, Hock, CMA Exam Academy and Wiley, only Gleim and CMA Exam Academy offers a money-back guarantee.
2. Discount With A Catch
Hock does not offer a deep enough discount to the CMA Coach community compared to Gleim & Wiley’s 10% discount.
3. No Guides
There’s not a hack’s guide or quick study section, as this course lacks some of the more useful tools that other companies include. Often, these supplemental guides include some great study tips and tricks, which are perfect come test time.
