October 2016 Grading Complete; Pass Rates Announced

CMT candidates taking exams in October 2016 challenge at the lower levels, while Level III candidates seem to have had better preparation. The following detail is shared by way of information only and is in no way intended to establish an ongoing policy or set an expectation for upcoming exams. With over 925 candidates taking exams in October, candidates completed the Level I, II and III exams with these results:

Exam              Passing Score    % Passing
Level I                 79                          56

2017 Curriculum To Be Available in January 2017.

The 2017 edition of the Market Technicians Association curriculum for the Level I, Level II and Level III exams will be available near the start of the new year. These books are available for purchase directly from Wiley at this link: CMT Curriculum.

Book Pricing

The price for the book at each level is $225.  You can purchase the curriculum in e-book form now but the printed copy is not yet available for sale just yet. It will be available in the next few days. When the printed copy is available for sale you will be able to purchase both the printed copy and the eBook as a bundle for the price of $270. The eBook is available for download immediately after your purchase and will be viewable on the VitalsourceTM  platform. The printed copy of the book will arrive through normal shipping.

Content Changes

The new curriculum has minor updates on all three levels compared to the previous editions. Students who purchased the 2016 curriculum in anticipation of using it for 2017 may find that their study source is acceptable enough to study since the changes for the 2017 still follow the same topics, even though improved readings have been substituted in some cases. However to help in this regard we are making a complete list of the readings available here (see below).
