Well, I had a terrible experience at the testing center. My test wouldn't start, and the lady working had no idea how to rectify the problem. Finally, after 45 minutes of waiting for tech support, I was able to start my test. She was doing something wrong because clearly she wasn't given the training to administer these exams. Regardless, an hour later I finished the test. Saw the generic provisionally passed on the screen and went on my way. The exam seemed more like a reading comprehension exam than an information security management exam. I don't think I'll pursue other ISACA exams if they're all written in a similar fashion. Question, did anyone else get a print out of some sort saying provisionally passed? She said my score was submitted and I was good to go. I have no confidence that my score was actually submitted. Any way to find out before the ten days? Will ISACA web site update with provisionally passed or anything like that? PSI exams is crap compared to Pearson.
I completely agree. I haven't had the pleasure of testing with PSI yet but Pearson nailed it, very professional, center, people. It's a money issue, Pearson is probably way more expensive, that's why they went the PSI route. PSI, however, I've read only bad reviews online about them. Congrats BTW!!!
Questions were a bit weird to be honest. Questions in the bank were more to the point, relevant. I guess as long as you understand the principles and scenarios then you are good to go.
That is a great way to describe the questions! I found myself reading a question, saying an answer in my head, and then having to correlate that to whatever wacky way they were describing!
you nailed it
