CISM - 2/2/2018
CRISC - 2/23/2018
CISA - 3/27/2018

Passed CISA today! Mission accomplished of completing the ISACA trifecta this exam period. Just in time before I start my new job on Monday. What a relief! For my studies I used the QAE database for all three exams. I completed around 1900 attempts on the CISA questions. To be completely honest, the CISA was harder than I expected. For whatever reason, I thought it was going to be easy. Anyways, I'm done with the certs for now and plan on focusing my efforts towards completing my degree. :)

    Thanks! Honestly studying for the CISSP months prior established a solid foundation and understanding of the concepts required to clear these exams. The QAE databases are awesome and we’re a huge help!

    I found sitting the CISSP exam 5 months before the CISM was a massive help. The CISSP gives you such a great basis for the other exams.

    And the ISACA Q&A is an awesome resource too!

    I have also passed the CISA exam and I am having a hard time finding a job in IT Audit , security or a related field, i live in Nigeria and do not mind an entry level job or even volunteering for a while to gain experience.
    My local chapter says there are no positions currently available to volunteer for, so there goes that option. Any suggestions friends?

    Congrats. I passed the same 3 ISACA certs (CISM, CISA, CRISC) in 1 week each using just the DB. I think it's more than sufficient for these exams.

    Woww!!!
    Congratulations. I am preparing for the CISA and I am using the question database of 2014. Do you think this with the official study guide will do the trick? Of course in addition to other online questions. I am a security analyst (contact person at my company for security audits) and I am CISSP Certified.
    Will love to hear from you.
    Congratulations again.

    Thanks for mentioning that. Will the 2014 database do the trick? What database did you use?

    Good job Bro. I am from Cameroon but live in the USA (so many jobs for that CISA certification). Look for jobs in other countries around Africa. I can guarantee you'll find one. I say so because I have been looking too. Look for jobs in Banks and mobile telephone companies all around Africa. Western countries are not so much into sponsoring visas for foreign worker especially given that the skills are available around them.

    I think that sounds good. I’d probably get the latest DB questions and use the guide only for reference. Especially since you have CISSP.
