CISA prelim pass 9/27
I took the CISA today and got a provisional pass page at the end. Didn't get a printout of my results, but I was relieved to see the pass notification.
I used the following material to study.
ISACA CISA official study guide 27th edition - Spent about 5 1/2 weeks, pacing myself with reading a chapter a week.
ISACA CISA Q&A database - This database gives you an indication of what the test will look like but many of the questions frustrated me because a lot of them appeared to be created in an attempt to confuse you. Did all 1000 questions and I never got over 72% on the practice exams, which got me a little worried for the exam.
cisaexamstudy - Hemang Doshi's material simplifies the major concepts that come from the official study guide. I only watched his ytube videos.
- The exam: I took 3 hrs with four breaks mainly because I drank a lot of coffee and water in the morning. The exam questions seemed to be easier than the Q&A database. The questions were mostly a single sentence in length and very straightforward, meaning they didn't create the questions in an attempt to confuse or make you second guess what they were asking. The answers almost always had two options you could immediately disregard and two options which seemed to answer the question. Roughly 20 questions were super easy where you could answer the question before reading the entire question.
