Good afternoon everyone,

Due to the change in some of the content and domain questions %'s could you kindly help me in understanding where I went wrong or where should I focus

> I have written the CISA exam 4 times and failed my scores are as follows: 388,431,438 and 407. I have went over the CISA database, CRM and CBT nuggets but I just cant seem to pass. Any advice for the June 2016. I heard the focus would be scenaria based.

> Tips on study regiment and how much to study per week till D day.

    1. Read the manual
    2. Purchase Q&A Database.
    3. Search Amazon for a supplementary book. if youve failed 4 times then you might need supplementary material to clarify concepts for you.
    * The DB should only be used to get you familiar with the tone of isaca's questions as you are aware they wont appear on the real test.. good luck on your next try.

    I would read the manual, DB Questions, cybrary videos and also, use youtube for concept you don't understand, some really good videos that detail hard to understand concepts (mostly used this for understanding encryption). Best of luck.

    I'm a big believer in multiple passes through test content. The first time you read through study materials, you're often encountering concepts for the first time (and your mind is trying to make sense of them). The next time you read through them, the concepts should snap into place and what you're reading should make more sense.

    Read the Cannon CISA book. Take 40 questions daily from the included CD (installed on a Windows PC). When you've read through that, start reading ISACA's official guide. In the six weeks leading up to your exam, take 40 questions per day (new questions only from all domains) using the ISACA 12 month practice questions database. Take the online version so you can easily chart your progress over time. Don't burn through large numbers of questions at once. You will memorize questions once taken so space it out and focus on learning how to analyze questions, identify the wrong answers, and isolate the best available answer. When you get a question wrong, study WHY you got it wrong.

    You also need to refine your test taking skills. Study the words used to construct questions in addition to the content. For example, words like ONLY or ALWAYS are usually givaway methods to identify wrong answers.

    It looks like the CISA will have 50 fewer questions than it did previously, so you will have more time per question. The downside is that each question will affect your score more.
