Passed CISM today. None of the questions from Q&A DB and online preparation test appeared in the exam. Only experience and in-depth knowledge on the subject helped to crack the exam. I have core network and network security background with ccie and moving towards info.sec domain.

My exam preparation plan:
Studying for cissp for last 6 months. Did Security+,CEH & CPISI on the way to understand the concepts in depth and finally planned to take cissp but had some doubt in passing, so postponed cissp for couple of weeks and took cism to test my subject understanding. Had gone through the youtube video's & purchased Q&A spent around 5 days to prepare for the exam.Studying for cissp helped me to understand the cism domain concepts.

Exam day:
Didn't study any thing on the exam day. Reached the exam center 2 hr early in the morning ( considering peak hr. traffic in Bangalore). spent 3.5 hrs to complete the exam. Didn't review any questions thinking my first choose would be a best answer. Now,waiting for the mail and official score card from ISACA.

    K-9 - I see that you already have CISSP so I'd say passing it soon won't be far from reality. bowing.gif
