CMA Part 1 Review by Anvar abbas from Doha - Qatar

I am Anvar abbas from India. Working in Amalk Holding Qatar as a F&B Cost controller. When i decided to do CMA for career up gradation luckily I reached to Mr. Emad and he explained me about the course and its scope also he shared some demo classes. Demo it self was very interesting, the way of concepts explanation and scenario base examples were very useful and I decided to join. Once I started attending online classes my misconceptions about online classes totally cleared. Live class section are very interesting and through interactive sessions students can clear doubts and queries related to the topic. The way of teaching and subject knowledge is much appreciated thing in this learning portal . One of the major highlight is, the portal is arranged in very useful way and any time members can access and watch the classes. Thank you Mr. Emad that you have presented some of the boring finance subjects in a very interested way. Anvar abbas
