Best Academy for CMA US is NorthStar Academy, the way Irfat sir teaches is excellent. His example is awesome, I am enlightened with the knowledge. Thank you NorthStar
After working for 2 years in corporate, I never thought I would be able to concentrate in classes & will be able to study. But one class gave me strength that YES I WILL be able to study & achieve my goal. The classes will be so lively with examples on topics that it makes you feel that the subject is actually not difficult and you will end up by loving the subject. Anybody who attend Irfat Sir’s classes would never say “Costing & Management Accounting” is a difficult subject. He teaches in such a simple way that my notion on Costing and Ratio Analysis being the toughest and boring subject changed into an easier and an interesting subject.
