CRISC passed 2/19
After passing the CISA in November, I decided to continue on to the CRISC while the ISACA mentality was still fresh in my mind. I only used the QAE database, as I had with the CISA, but if it weren't for some real-world experience this could have been a mistake. I had read up on other people's experiences with the CISA - many noting it was the most difficult of the ISACA exams - and overall I didn't think it was too terrible. The CRISC on the other hand was about 50% testing the material itself and 50% testing ISACA as a whole. I felt the questions were even more vague than I was anticipating and would encourage anyone attempting it to pay very close attention to the wording in the QAE questions because it will be at least that confusing on the actual exam. To make it even more fun, there were a couple errors in the QAE DB and after mentioning it to ISACA a while back I still haven't seen it corrected, so just be aware of that.In the end, I doubt my formal score will be a great one, but a pass is a pass. Good luck to everyone planning this or other certs.
