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.

    @Kaiju, it's been a while. Since I told you, I will update you in regards to the CGEIT exam. Lots of things have happened in my life over the last three years. I'm planning to write about it... with titles like" Why you should never give up or keep your dream alive" something like that. I was able to take the exam last month and passed with 622.
