Took the CISM on 12/16, provisionally passed. Received the official pass and score report today (12/26). The test took about 1.5 hrs to complete.

Scaled score 613



Information Security Governance
574


Information Risk Management and Compliance
644


Information Security Program Development and Management
598


Information Security Incident Management
637



Preparation
I bought the manual but after reading a few pages I feel like the book would be better as a reference than a review source, it's pretty dry. Instead, based on trying to read the manual and advice often given here, I used the Q&A database as my only preparation. From my experience, I'd say maybe 20% of the actual exam questions were similar to the Q&A database questions.

Thoughts
Overall, I thought the Q&A database practice questions and the actual exam were pretty straight forward. Now to submit the paperwork.

    @averageguy72.. A Very big Congratulations to you. Just for the sake of others who lurk around for information on how to passed the CISM. You're saying you only used the Official ISACA Q&A as your only source to study for the Exam?

    @scankloud

    Correct, I only used the Q&A database to prepare. Edited the post to clarify, just realized I had "Q&E" rather than "Q&A".
