Thanks everyone who shared their strategy to take any of the exams on this site. I can tell you that it helps in confirming that you are on right track of preparation when you start taking your preparation strategy in execution stage.
My journey for the quest for ISACA exams mentioned started on 21st March 2018 and ended on 9th June 2018.
My preparation for each exam is detailed below and hope it helps every aspiring exam taker.

CRISC:
Step 1. 5-Videos from Pluralsight on CRISC.
Step 2. CRISC review manual by ISACA (read end-to-end)
Step 3. CRISC printed review question-answer manual by ISACA (read end-to-end)
Step 4. Take exam next day.

CISM:
Step 1. CBT Nuggets videos.
Step 2. CISM review manual by ISACA (read end-to-end)
Step 3. CISM printed review question-answer manual by ISACA (read end-to-end)
Step 4. Take exam next day.

CGEIT:
Step 1. CGEIT review manual by ISACA (read end-to-end)
Step 2. CGEIT printed review question-answer manual by ISACA (read end-to-end)
Step 3. Take exam next day.

Took me longest time to prepare for CGEIT exam.

All exams were pretty tough and does help coming from 20+ years in IT background with CISSP, CCSP(Cloud Security by ISC2) certification and working in infrastructure security.

I'm grateful to my family for being patient during my journey and extremely grateful to God in giving me strength to sit too many hours (on an average 60-80 hours per exam) to pass these exams.

Hope this short summary helps in preparing your exam?

Thanks,
Ashok N.

    scada - Not sure if it has already been archived, but there was a CISM course by Steve Caseley. Personally, I found Kelly's CISM course in Cybrary better.
