Did the remote proctoring, which was a nightmare to try and get working. PSI's support was not able to help me with two separate devices. Guess what their solution was?.......Use a different device. Frustrated beyond belief!

Once I was able to figure everything out myself, I was about 3 minutes late taking the exam at which point was able to begin after scanning the room, arms, ears, and glasses. It took me about 2:30 to go through all 150 questions, flagging 18 of them. I decided to accept my flag answers as is, and passed. Now the wait for official results........

    Congratulation from those of us who have been putting off the CISM for years now!
    What study aides were the most help to you?

    I only used the QAE to study, didn't finish the questions or take a pre-test. The CISSP mostly prepared me for this exam.

    I used the same approach for both CISM and CISA. Having CISSP under my belt was a big help because there is a lot of content overlap with the study material.

    Do the CISM QAE database items explain why the correct answer option (key) is correct and why the incorrect answer options (distractors) are incorrect?

    Yes it does which is why I find it so valuable.

    I really don't want to spend the extra $$$ on the QAE, but that feature does make it (in)valuable. The non-member pricing is currently $400. What is the current member pricing?

    It's worth it, since these questions are all the retired ones from the actual CISM exam. $399 is the non-member pricing, $299 for members.
