CISM in December?

Hi Folks,
Anyone else taking the CISM in December?

I am currently studying using the ISACA Test Engine as well as the official guide. I am also tempted to attend the webinar by Krag Brotby a week beforehand. I'd rather not pay any more money out tbh, but the format does look good. Anyone ever attended his sessions?

    I didn't use Krag's class but I did use the test engine and Official Study Guide back in June and passed, if you have been studying pretty consistently with those materials and understand the concepts you should do just fine. Good luck!

    Hi micon55,
    I attended Krag's class last year and it was excellent. I would recommend it.

    I attended Krag's online class found it very useful. It helped me a lot in the CISM exam.

    Some questions about CISM exam:
    1) how similar are the exam questions respect to the CISM Questions database;
    2) which is the perentage to reach on CISM questions databased to be enough quite to pass the exam;

    If it is anything like the CISA exam engine, they will be worded very similarly to the exam engine in regards to syntax, structure, use of words such as MOST, LEAST, etc. It's kind of like the actual exam questions are a subset of the exam engine ones that you don't get to see until the actual test.

    The scoring of the exam is convoluted at best; ISACA doesn't reveal how they weigh each question and/or domain, or how many 'research' questions are in the exam. It's not graded as a percentage (the highest you can get it an 800, lowest is 200, and the cutoff score is 450. You can try to extrapolate that out to a percentage but I am positive it will be incorrect. I believe the exam engine wants you to have 85 or better, but I don't know if that is the minimum, or if it has a built-in cushion above the cutoff.

    Is there any way to reset the score on CISM Q&A database?

    I am not sure, unless you uninstalled it/reinstalled it...

    Krag does have a free CISM glossary document available, you can probably find it via Google...

    Hi Micon,
    Do you have the CISM manual?
  • sireesha19sireesha19 Registered Users Posts: 4 ■□□□□□□□□□
    Hi Zxbane,
    I am looking for CISM manual, is anyone planning to sell it?
  • da_vatoda_vato Member Posts: 445
    sireesha19, I am not sure how much a previous years manual will help you out as ISACA updates their manuals every year. I can't imagine there are drastic changes between each years version, but that is a risk that I personally would not take nor recommend to anyone.
