Hi Team,

I Passed my CISM Exam on 2nd try this past weekend (Saturday precisely), since I passed my CRISC immediately after my first fail in CISM, I was much more immerged in Risk and I dealt with my weakest domain from the first try "Governance" and I did only the CISM QAE - Question Answer and Explanation Database all 1000 questions, I did 300 everyday and timing myself 2hrs for every 100 questions with reading the correct answers and the incorrect answers. Understand why I thought it was correct and ISACA thought differently. I did a couple of domains with Kelly Handerhand Cybrary.it videos. Most importantly, I used the Pocketprep app on Android - CISM Pocketprep App with 600 questions. I did all that questions and the explanations. and it made the entire CISM content easy.

At the end of the exam, it says you have PASSED the CISM Exam and I was excited then left the building with my shoulders high.

2 ISACA down (CISM & CRISC) and 2 left standing to be demolished (CISA & CGEIT)

I am now unto CISSP to face it squarely. Thank you team, all of your inputs really helped.

How did you study for your CISA to pass and how are you studying for the CISSP?

    For the CISA, the test bank AND the book. In the case of the CISA, there were parts I had not worked with (like EDI), but it is very testable--especially how it works. So, I would go with the ISACA Q&E and manual/book. All of their manuals are dry, but you can get a good understanding of how ISACA says things work.

    CISSP is Cybrary, Skillsoft, and ISC2 Study Guide.

    You need to purchase it from the ISACA website.
    I believe you get access to it for a minimum of a year.
