    Could you post your score report sans name info? Give us an idea where you are falling?

    I did the same and then passed on the 3rd try. Second attempt I had missed by 7 points. What I did was took my time on the third attempt.
    1. Read the questions and looked for key words. Best, First, etc
    2. Eliminate when you can and flag if unsure to review for second pass
    3. Take a 2 min break after about 50 questions, I found that when I took a brake I could refocus on the question for them to make sense again :)
    4. Review the manual, things that are lists helps with sequencing in questions
    5. Make the time to review and go in thinking ISACA way. Some youtube videos out there good to listen to for review and concepts.

    Good Luck

    Check this guy’s previous posts. Based on those it seems he just doesn’t want to put in the time and study properly.
