Examination Study Tools 

To help you prepare for the CMCA examination, CAMICB has developed a study guide from a content outline that is the basis for the CMCA examination. This guide is intended to help you manage your preparation for the CMCA examination. It is important for you to become familiar with the content outline and the knowledge areas. The specific knowledge areas have been developed to assist you in studying and each area describes the responsibilities and associated tasks performed and the comprehension needed to successfully practice community association management.

You may also choose to purchase the CMCA Study Kit offered by Community Associations Institute (CAI), which includes six individual guides to these topics:

  • Drafting Rules: How Community Associations Maintain Peace & Harmony
  • Bids & Contracts: How to Find the Right Community Association Professional
  • Meetings & Elections: How Community Associations Exercise Democracy
  • Reserve Funds: How & Why Community Associations Invest Assets

CMCA examination preparation includes utilizing the CMCA Handbook, Study Guide, Best Practice Reports, Guides for Association Practioners and more.  See all the recommended preparation materials here.
