Study for the Exam

Looking for study resources for the CMA (AAMA) Certification/Recertification Examination?

Here are a few sources to get you started:

  • Exam Content Outline  |  Use the CMA (AAMA) Certification/Recertification Examination Content Outline as a road map for tracking all the exam topics you need to study.

  • Textbooks  |  Obtain current medical assisting publications that cover areas listed in the Content Outline. The AAMA does not offer a practice test for the entire CMA (AAMA) Certification/Recertification Exam, nor does it endorse any practice exams by outside publishers.
  • Test Your Knowledge  |  Every medical assistant needs a good working knowledge of Anatomy and Physiology and Medical Terminology. This is your opportunity to test how much you know about these topics. The CMA (AAMA) Certification Examination may include questions on Anatomy and Physiology and Medical Terminology, but none of these particular questions will appear on the CMA (AAMA) Certification Examination.
