I have passed successfully, waiting now for the official results. I've studies for almost two months (around 2-3 hours daily) I do have good experience in Incident Management/Risk Management so I didn't spend a lot of time on these two domains.

I finished the exam in 2 hours and 30 minutes, I believe the finished the 150 questions in around an hour an half then I reviewed all the questions.

I've used the following materials:

Official manual (which was boring, dull and I honestly didn't finish it)
Questions and Answers DB, was good.
Cybrary CISM (really good) CISM (also good but Crybrary is better)

My advice is to do your best, I only took the exam when I felt confident. It was scheduled last week but I was not really prepared thats why I rescheduled till today.

On a side note 90% of the exams I took in my life were in another city (and sometimes another country :D) this one is no different. I live in Santa Cruz and I took the exam in Santa Clara which was 40 miles away

    I've just got my official score

    We are pleased to inform you that you successfully PASSED the exam with a total scaled score of 512. For your information, your exam results by area are provided below.

    Information Security Governance

    Information Risk Management and Compliance

    Information Security Program Development and Management

    Information Security Incident Management

    I have to say I'm a bit disappointed because I expected a higher score. I clearly scored high in the areas I know most (Risk and IM) but my score in Governance is low although I was scoring really high in practice.

    Overall not bad for 2 months study. Now I need to fill in the application
