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)
www.udemy.com 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.
    SCALED SCORES BY CONTENT AREA:


    Information Security Governance
    481


    Information Risk Management and Compliance
    567


    Information Security Program Development and Management
    450


    Information Security Incident Management
    559




    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
