Hi All,

Passed CRISC yesterday!!

Study Resources:

1. 20% Kelly Handerhan CRISC videos - I thought the content was slightly off here from Kelly normally she is very good

2. 80% ISACA Q&A Database - This was the best resource for me. I did all of the questions which was about 30 hours worth. I read all of the answers even the incorrect. Concepts that I needed extra revision with I copied into a word document and read them a few times.

I did not need the review manual, but I do have a fair amount of experience and Im also CISSP and recently CISM certified which helped.

Tips: Know the difference between risk types (Inherent, Control, Relevance, Residual, Acceptance, Avoidance, Transfer, Mitigation) Know what a risk profile is and how its developed, know the difference between data owners and custodians,)

Hope that helps

    Congrats! I will be taking CGEIT next month. I was about to start studying for CRISC but CGEIT will be better for a position that will be opening in the spring. QA&E helps a lot for gauging comprehension of the material.
