Well, the CISA test saga has come to an end. I took the test on Saturday and will receive the results of the test in ten weeks. You would think that for a pseudo-technical certification that ISACA would have the technology to return the results more expediently.

Unlike the CISSP test, which I found to be pretty easy, this test was no cakewalk. Unfortunately for me, there weren’t a lot of technical questions and the business process questions were very subjective. As such, there were some questions were all of the presented answers seemed reasonable.

Since I already have a highly-regarded, industry-recognized professional certification, the CISSP, I will more than likely not take the CISA test again, whether I pass or fail. I am just not willing to pay $300 to take a grueling 200-question, four-hour test ever again. I’m done.

  2. Do you have the CD of exam questions

    #2 by Fm — June 8, 2004 @ 1:00 am

  3. None of the 700 questions on the CD are on the test…wouldnt it be nice to find a copy of the 2004 test itself

  4. how long after the exam did you get your email telling you, you passed?

  5. Seven weeks–it’s a pretty long wait. Good luck.

  6. Hello, I have passed the exam with a score of 82 this year. The highest in our chapter was 84 (Hyderabad, India), dont know how good these scores are when compared internationally. But can you tell how your position has improved after qualification? I am a fresher as far and am looking to my first employment. Thank you.

    Thanks for the reply.

  8. Hari, I am actually not a good person to ask. Since I was already performing large scale information systems audits prior to getting the certification, my position didn’t change much. However, I will make manager in my firm this year partly because of my CISSP, CISA, and CISM certifications.

    #8 by Nugget — August 27, 2004 @ 11:13 am

  9. 82 (scaled) is a good score. But in the US, I have met people who scored as much as 95. I passed this year. Btw, if you got your CISA certification then look for a job with some of the big 5(4) firms. Passing the exam without any experience is a tough deal and you have done well.

  10. hey Nugget,
    Thanx,and sorry I wasnt checking ur site. And yes, I am on the Job hunt. Just started. Got an interview in Deloitte the day after, something do with Risk and Internal controls. And have applied to PWC as well. Am actually surprised at how wide is CISA, and the areas are quite new to me completely. I still am confident of doing well. Luckily for me I also did SAP financials and also know a few security tools, so am hopeful of getting a decent job. Still am a bit worried on the experience front.
    well thats it,
    will keep u posted on how things turn up.
    A parting question, can you point me to resources that talk about Audit Risk, the Risk management process and the various steps in it?
    Thanx again
    Good day
    Hari.

  11. Hello all. I recently took and passed the CISSP and sit for the CISA in June. I welcome any and all hints, tips or tricks to help me pass the exam. Also, what is the best way to get IT Audit experience? I’m currently a Network Engineer with a Telecom carrier.

  12. i am new to this exam i dont even know what the questions look like. please i need idea of what to do to pass this exam. if you are a cisa can you please share your experience on what i can do or books to read. thanks.

    #12 by emman — May 2, 2005 @ 7:48 am

  13. Hi Eman,
    I have passed the CISA 2005 exam with a score of 81. I heavily relied on the CISA study manual and the 650 questions and answers CD, none of these questions came in the real exam but they really did help as it got me familiar with the style of questions that would come up in the exam. I also glanced through COBIT it will give you a good idea on IT controls. However, I must note that I work for the Big 4 and I have around 2 years experience in IT auditing which was of big help to my passing this exam…all the best :)

  17. Hi
    Can anybody give me question and answer set for CISA 2007

    Thx

    #17 by Vishal — December 11, 2007 @ 5:26 am

  18. I took the CISA this Dec and even after lots of experience in IT auditing and substantial study for the test… I have no idea if I passed or not. About half the questions I know I got right. but the other half it seemed there were always two answers that would be reasonable. So much subjectivity and sometimes just poorly worded questions make it a very hard exam. Anyone attempting this should know going in that it’s not going to be easy.

    BTW, I used the question banks from ISACA, exam matrix, and I paid for the Certifiedinfosec material as well.

    #18 by Greg — December 14, 2007 @ 8:48 am

  25. Hey i just got the results for the dec07 exam i got 620, anyone knows what that stand for percentage wise? i past since i have 9 years experience in IT (not auditing), lots of questions rely on real life IT experience and there are lots of terms you should know from the manual. if you study less then 2 months for it with no experience dont expect to pass it…

    #25 by Shai Canaan — February 5, 2008 @ 8:14 pm

  26. Does anybody know the percentage of those passing the CISA exam. I am considering taking the test, but I would like to know how the odds are. It’s a 500 dollar exam.

    #26 by Ivan — February 11, 2008 @ 5:01 pm

  27. i passed! well, after failing twice.. most of the questions are really subjective, i’ve encountered a lot of questions, in which the choices appears to be correct, the passing rate from what i’ve seen from prior years would be roughly 50%.

    #27 by cool ganzee — February 19, 2008 @ 10:25 am

  28. Hi All,

    I took the CISA test in SFO on 14 June 2008.

    The test is very, very subjective. It is not based on any real-life experience that I am aware of.

    I purchased the over-priced study guide from ISACA. It was not useful. The questions were worded differently from the test. The questions in the study guide was worded more objectively. The correct answer can be dissected. The questions in the test were subjective with very little information. I felt I was prepared.

    I await the results in 6-8 weeks.

    #28 by Lawrence — June 18, 2008 @ 1:27 pm

  29. Same feeling about the subjective questions / answers. Based on the sample test questions I took, I would say it’s like half of the questions, I am not sure if my answers were right or not. No clue really. To many questions I felt there are at least 1 more (or more) good answers. Even in the tests I took before, sometimes the correct answer was explained in a way that didn’t really satisfy me, I felt like in many cases I could give a similar plausible explanation for another of the answers, too… I guess it’s the same thing with the exam questions, too.
    I worked about 6 years in IT now, support kind of work mostly with networks/servers; vulnerability assessments, antivirus systems etc. as far as IT security is concerned.
    No clue how I performed, guess I’ll just hope and see.

    #29 by Endre — July 4, 2008 @ 5:09 am

  30. I also took the last CISA Exam (June 14, 2008).

    I’d say the questions were pretty much tricky – as they’ve always been. I really do hope for the best though as I put in quite some effort in preparing for the Exams.

    Cheers All!!

  33. I also took the CISA Exam(June 14,2008).

    Just got the result via email.Fortunately i have passed it with a score of 637.

    I am already a CISSP with 6+ years of Information Security and Data Center Experience.The exam was tricky ( not in technical terms) but it require thorough reading and some experience . You cannot tell any thing about the result until you receive it :)

    I wish every one best of Luck

  37. Congratulations for all of you who passed! I failed with 416 points, and unfortunately weakest points came from my strongest areas (audit process, governance). This was my first try and I believe last too. Anyway, I got the learning points out of the process and I’m glad about it! I don’t have IT technical experience at all so in that respect I felt the test was very difficult! ;=)

    #37 by Yolanda — July 23, 2008 @ 1:01 pm

  38. Got my results by email yesterday. I passed with 543. Work Experience will be huge factor in determining your grade. I am an internal auditor with 2+ years experience, mostly operational audits, not too many IT audits under my belt. If you are considering doing this exam purchase the 700+ Review questions on CD and read the manual of course. The exam questions will be trickier but the questions will help you focus. You will not know how you did when you finish the exam because the questions are extremely subjective. Good luck to all of you

    #38 by Antonio — July 23, 2008 @ 1:20 pm

  40. Hey guys, This is Anil from new Delhi, India. I have also got through the exam with 606, in the first attempt. Could anybody shed the light on the scores. Whats the highest score for June 2008.

    #40 by Anil Chopra — July 23, 2008 @ 9:46 pm

  41. Is the scaled score important or just passing the CISA exam is enough. Would the employers look at the scores objectively.

    #41 by bingo — July 23, 2008 @ 10:24 pm

  42. Employers do not care about the score you get on the test whatsoever. They only care that you have the certification. At our firm the certification is used to enhance and supplement your existing work experience in the field of IT audit.

  47. I passed my CISA with a score of 812! ~~

    #47 by Woody Simons — July 24, 2008 @ 10:45 am

  48. Woody Simons, how is that possible? Quote from isaca.org:

    The CISA exam consists of 200 items. Candidate scores are reported as a scaled score. A scaled score is a conversion of a
    candidate’s raw score on an exam to a common scale. ISACA uses and reports scores on a common scale from 200 to 800. A
    candidate must receive a score of 450 or higher to pass the exam. A score of 450 represents a minimum consistent standard of
    knowledge as established by ISACA’s CISA Certification Board.

    #48 by Sjoerd de Boer — July 24, 2008 @ 3:57 pm

  49. True. 812 is out of the scoring range.

    I passed with an even 700 though. If you look at the way the GMAT is scored, a 700 is in the 90th percentile and a 750-800 is in the 99th percentile. so an 812 would be in the 110th percentile (or something like that!)

    #49 by Outsider0506 — July 24, 2008 @ 8:45 pm

  50. True. 812 is out of the scoring range.

    I passed with an even 700 though (1st time taking test). If you look at the way the GMAT is scored, a 700 is in the 90th percentile and a 750-800 is in the 99th percentile. so an 812 would be in the 110th percentile (or something like that!)

    #53 by Larry — July 26, 2008 @ 7:52 am

  54. Does anyone know how to calculate your percentile given your total scaled score?? If so, please help by posting information here.
    Will we get to know our percentile score when the results arrive by postal mail? The email only contains the scores, and not the percentiles.

    #54 by Anony Mouse — July 27, 2008 @ 10:57 am

  55. passed with 656. scored lowest on the “easiest” sections (DR). I did not spend much time on the DR material figuring it was the most straight forward. However, they made all the DR questions extremely tricky. I am really just an accountant pretending to be an IT auditor, but have 11 years experience & CIA, CMA, CFM, MBA.

  56. I passed the CISA despite having low scores (380 and 256) on Protection of Information Assets and Lifecycle, service, support. How would I apply for the certification?

    #56 by Jack — July 28, 2008 @ 11:22 am

  57. Took the exam in London. Spent two hours on the 200 questions. Passed on 606. Would sitting there another two hours have improved the score? In my opinion, no. You either know the material, or you don’t. I am a financial services internal auditor working in investment banking, comparatively recent starter in the IT audit field (3 years experience).

    #57 by ET — July 29, 2008 @ 1:11 am

  58. yes, agree with previous post. i only spent about 2.25 hours taking the test. i quickly went back through, but changed only two answers (though I was tempted to change many more). i think the 4 hour time limit is deadly – meaning it allows you too much time to second guess yourself. go with your first instinct and answer each question one time and one time only.

    #58 by matt — July 29, 2008 @ 5:02 am

  59. Passed with a score of 556.
    I’m happy I’ve put that project behind me now.

  60. I am studying for the December 2008 CISA. Can someone offer me some tips for passing? I have 4 yrs auditing experience. I do not like standardized tests though. I don’t care for high marks, just enough to get me over the hurdle.

    #60 by Lawrence Uhger — July 31, 2008 @ 11:11 am

  61. I have 13 years of IT experience, including:
    a. Software Development & Design
    b. Software Testing & QA
    c. Design Documentation, SRS creation etc
    d. Test Plan and Test cases creation
    e. Management of Software Projects
    f. Program Management
    g. Managing IT infrastructure of an organization
    h. Setting into place procedures for backups etc.

    What I don’t have is Audit experience. Do you think that with my above experience, I fulfil the requirements for a CISA certification? (I have passed the exam, FYI)

    #61 by Anony Mouse — August 1, 2008 @ 12:28 am

  62. The best bit of advice is to:

    1. Attend a review class at your local ISACA chapter
    2. Review the CISA Review Manual 2008
    3. Go through each and every exam question on the CD sold by ISACA
    4. Understand the reasoning behind each and every wrong answer to give.

    Just do these things and you’ll pass no problem.

    On study tactics Sikander, you asked about certifiedinfosec.com

    Overall I would say this is the most valuable tool. Only thing I don’t like is that the questions asked are exactly what is in the course, verbatim, so it gets a bit redundant, but it makes you learn it. Allen Keele puts out a great product.

  72. In my experience you will have a better result with CISSP. I have both CISSP and CISA. The CISA is like a ‘rider’ on your car insurance. It enhances the experience, but you still need the basic coverage.

    This is my opinion, your mileage may vary ;)

  74. I took the June 2008 and ended up with a 731 with two sections scored at 800 even. I’m in the USA. My lowest was a 680 or something.

    If you have the experiance like they say you should and take this stuff seriously, then this test is very easy to pass. Read their material cover to cover and understand it. Do the questions and understand them. BTW: I have my CISSP too… That one is probably easier to STUDY to pass. The CISA I think requires better judgement, which comes with experiance.

    #79 by Wangawanga — June 15, 2009 @ 5:21 am

  80. Some people have wondered how to convert the raw score to a percentage of questions where you selected the correct answer. I’m not sure if this is possible since the score you receive is weighted; that is, a correct answer in Protection of Information Assets weighs much more than a correct answer in some of the other categories. As I recall, the same is true for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery. I’m an auditor and passed the exam (June 2008) with relatively little IT experience using Exammatrix (basically just answering all the questions and reviewing some of them twice), reviewing the ISACA questions, and using a valuable textbook entitled CISA Certified Information Systems Auditor Study Guide (relatively inexpensive at $37.79) that has quite a few sample questions on a disk that comes with the book (as well as questions at the end of each chapter) and text that I found easier to comprehend and more succinct than the other souses.

  87. Passed June 2009 with 584 points. Finishing test in 2,5 hours – when not sure with answer I believed in intuition.

  88. can anyone from india who has passed the exam provide me guideline on how to pass the CISA exam ? Also what is the pass percentage of people passing the exam.please if possible can someone give me their contact number ?

    #88 by guhesan — August 16, 2009 @ 9:49 am

  89. I cleared my CISA on my first attempt woohooo… Also congratulations to all who have passed.

    For new ones it only requires a little dedication. I used Sybex CISA Study Guide, its a great book to get you started and most importantly you will need the set of practice questions from ISACA. You should also read CISA Review Manual as it is considered the bible for this exam, but in my opinion the book is very bland. You need to hit your head with the book to stay awake to go through it :)

    Best of luck to all the future aspirants.

  90. Hi all, How did todays’ exam go btw!?,well did my part..fingers crossed now!;)…felt like most of the questions had more than one correct answers!..nd some questions were cheeky!.did you guys find that 2?
    And by when can we expect the results to be posted or be made available online?

    Thank you!

    #90 by Abhilash — December 12, 2009 @ 2:20 pm

  91. I didn’t think the test was that bad. A lot of questions were really tricky. But if you broke them down and subtracted the wrongs answers it seemed clear. But I wont know until they mail me the results. Sitting for four hours straight to answer 200 questions, urgh.

    Funny thing a lot of the after market books I bought on the CISA exam. Well they covered things that weren’t in the exam.

    Odd thing they say you cant bring in beverages. But if you brought in water bottle with a cap, that was ok.

    #91 by Edward — December 12, 2009 @ 2:52 pm

  92. Hey,

    Gave the test in Karachi. I was amazed to see that atleast 30% of the questions were from the practice tests I had done.

    But the test was a bit tricky. I didn’t get time to go through my answers, which worries me when I think about it.

    But I’m relieved that its finally over. Had the best nap in months yesterday! :D

    #92 by Ali Hassan — December 13, 2009 @ 12:00 pm

  93. Hi Abhilash,

    Yes I did feel the same.

    I am an IT security professional with about 7 year’s experience. I hold certificates such as SCJP, CISSP, ITIL V3 Foundation and ISO 27001 L.A.

    I have almost spent 4 months preparing for the CISA exam.

    I did find CISA exam neither easy nor difficult. That having said I am not too sure whether I will pass. There were about 25-30 questions where you could easily eliminate 2 options but the other 2 options seems to be confusing.

    I completed answering the 200 questions in about 3 hour. The remaining time I spent revisiting those 25-30 questions. Out of these 25-30 questions, I modified my answer for at least 6 of them. So now I am very anxious about the outcome.

    The results should be typically published in 8 weeks from the exam date. You should be receiving an email regarding the same.

    Thanks

  94. Hi Mr. Ali Hassan!
    I read you did cisa isaca test in karachi, i did it also in dec2009. you wrote that aprox 30% of the questions from your test were from the practice tests. could you pls send this test to me cause i think i’ve failed once again and need more studing aid?
    thnx! 1tfun@gmx.at

    #94 by karl — January 7, 2010 @ 4:13 am

  95. I am sitting on egg shells waiting for the test results.

    When I looked at my resume after reading all the CISA manuals, I changed to use the same verbage as in the book. I have actually gotten more hits. Putting CISA on it will really make it shine.

    #95 by Edward — January 15, 2010 @ 6:56 am

  96. I just got a email from ISACA about the exam. When I saw I got the email I started to hyperventilate and scrolled down and saw my score was 454. The passing score is 450. Wow I just squeaked by, BUT I DID IT.

    Doing the happy dance now.

    #96 by Edward — January 28, 2010 @ 3:18 pm

  97. Oh my God, its result time already! I’m hyperventilating!

    Where are you from mate?

    And how did your exam go? What were you expecting before the result?

    Congrats! :)

    #97 by Ali Hassan — January 28, 2010 @ 3:26 pm

  98. I am in Boston Ma, USA.

    The exam was intense but not hard or easy. I had studied 6 hours a day for 2 months. To tell the truth the best book I found is the CISA review manual along with the sample test Q&A. In hindsight I should have concentrated on that book.

    I was expecting to either fail or pass by a few points. To prep for the exam I took a lot of nootopics vitamins with some Ritalin and Xanax.

    Now I want to move to back to LA and get my old apartment on the beach back. I will be styling again. WOOO HOOO

    #98 by Edward — January 28, 2010 @ 4:06 pm

  99. Hey,

    Passed here too! :D. Got a 521.

    Karachi, Pakistan here

    Screwed up due to over study and lack of sleep on the last day. This whole wait was really gruesome and I’m glad its over! :D

    Now I’m gonna kiss this job goodbye. Yee Ha!!

    #99 by Ali Hassan — January 28, 2010 @ 4:32 pm

  100. Hi I just got my result. I passed the exam with a score of 521. I wish everuone the very best.

    #100 by srkamath — January 28, 2010 @ 8:11 pm

  101. Hello,

    Congratulations for who passed the exam. I received my score today, it is my first attempt, and I passed with a 593 score. Actually I prepared so well for the exam and I really expected a much higher score, however, I’m glad I passed. Good luck for anybody looking to take th exam. By the way, despite lacking good organization the CISA review manual is the only resource that covers the exam content entirely, and the questions database from ISACA is great too.

    #101 by Mustafa Nasser — January 28, 2010 @ 11:19 pm

  102. Hi Ali Hassan,

    Can you please tell me which materials you used? Thanks!!

    #102 by Bismark — January 29, 2010 @ 12:50 am

  103. I passed with a score of 538. I think exam was tougher this time. 5 people i know didnt make it.

    #103 by Ahmed — January 29, 2010 @ 1:34 am

  104. Karl and Bismark,

    Study material, questions provided by ISACA.

    #104 by Ali Hassan — January 29, 2010 @ 4:30 am

  105. First to all to all my homies who passed, how many times have you read that email saying you passed? I have lost count!

    Here is how I passed it and what I would suggest.

    I started out with an after market book and they suggested reading more then one book to give you a different over view. I read 4 of them plus the CISA review manual. The vast majority of the after market books are horrible. They make you drill down on information the test doesn’t cover. The CISA review manual is so dry and intense and is not an easy read.

    So I would suggest first reading “all in one CISA exam guide”. This is to get your head into that mode. It is the closest to the CISA review manual but written with a better flow. When you take the practice test at the end of each chapter, the questions you got wrong make a note of them. Now create what I call a brain book. All the questions you got wrong look them up in the book and write them down in your own words. Now dive into the CISA review manual. Also get the test CD and review Q&A from ISACA.

    Also another book that is half way decent is “CISA exam secrets” by Mometrix media. It is a cliff notes style book and it gives test taking strategies.

    Realistically I was reading 70 pages a day and a 100 on a good day. After around 30 minutes I would get up pace the floor and take a few deep breaths.

    Hope this helps.

    #105 by Edward — January 29, 2010 @ 6:20 am

  106. Got my results yesterday. Passed. Only used the Cannon study guide. Took notes. Did questions after each chapter. 45 total study hours over a 1 month period. Have staff audit experience only. The night before exam, reviewed notes and had a delicious steak dinner. The secret to passing is chewing slowly so you can savor each flavorful bite – no steak sauce necessary.

    #106 by wyfod — January 30, 2010 @ 1:43 am

  107. Just kidding about the steak dinner… I really suggest the Cannon book. Audit work experience will definitely help. All the technical stuff (IT related) you can learn from the book. Make sure to do lots of questions because it will prepare you for “the most, the least, the best, etc.” type of questions in the exam. Good luck.

    #107 by wyfod — January 30, 2010 @ 1:51 am

  108. Well wyfod being an auditor helped you. I assisted with audits at my last company but wasn’t familiar with the terms. Also I get test anxiety really bad. I might know the subject cold but during a test I freeze up. So I study so much that it takes over my mind and all I think about is the subject. Of course getting a prescription for Xanax worked wonders.

    Seeing at the cost of the test is $415 to $595 and is only offered twice a year I didn’t want to leave anything to chance. If I had failed my career would have been put on hold.

    I do agree taking a lot of practice test really helps out.

    #108 by Edward — January 30, 2010 @ 6:01 am

  109. Edward, congrats. My audit experience was with a public accounting firm. It might have made the difference. However, I also want to give credit to my brain.

    #109 by wyfod — January 30, 2010 @ 12:36 pm

  110. What can I do?
    I passed the test and asked my X company to sign off that I did do auditing and security for them. They wont return my phone calls or emails. And to think before the layoff they said they would help me out.

    #110 by Edward — February 10, 2010 @ 7:44 am

  111. Hey Edward,

    Would love to discuss the situation with you in detail. Ad me on Skype so that we can talk. My ID is alihmemon

    #111 by Ali Hassan — February 10, 2010 @ 7:50 am

  112. I just got off the phone with ISACA. They said the person who signs off on you does not have to be your supervisor. Just someone that worked with you and can verify that you did security or auditing.

    #112 by Edward — February 10, 2010 @ 3:09 pm

  113. what time is the CISA exam? is it a standard 8am-noon?

    #113 by Jason — April 19, 2010 @ 7:01 am

  114. What happened to me is.
    Mine was given at a local college lecture hall.
    Check in is from 7:30 to 8:30.
    You have to show your invite and a photo ID.
    You are assigned a seat. There was a empty seat on both sides of me.
    The doors close at 8:30 with no one else admitted.
    They go over do’s and dont’s. You fill out the answer sheet with the required personal infomation.
    At 9:00 the test starts and you break the seal on the question booklet.
    Every half hour they write on a board of time remaining.
    Do not take this test lightly.

    #114 by Edward — April 19, 2010 @ 7:32 am

  115. I am taking the CISA this June and I am started to be a little concerned. I have read and practice the firts 5 chapters in te Office Guide and teh CD-Romm. I am starting tomorrow the last chapter, DR and BR. I ordered the Sybex book which, I hope, will arrive in 2 days to help me out in the last month of study. Any tips for the last month of study?
    My backgroun: Master in IS and auditor for 4 years. Thanks!

    #115 by Onward — April 29, 2010 @ 3:59 pm

  116. I feel your pain, really, I was there. I read the Sybex and it was just ok. There was one part where they talked about manager’s doing empire building, which rang a bell at my last company. The test its self really doesn’t go deep into technical aspects. I took those tests at the end of each chapter. On every question I got wrong I researched why I got it wrong. I get test anxiety really bad. I know the answer but I freeze up. I went to my doctor and they gave me a prescription for Xanax and it helped. When taking the test it is ok for you to write in the book. I underlined key words. Then I scratched off answers I knew that were wrong. Although I was told you cannot bring coffee in, I did see people bring in bottled water. Also I would suggest bringing in a chocolate bar with a high coca count. There is a chemical in coca that is similar to caffeine but doesn’t overly stimulate you brain. So when you hit heart break hill and your brain is starting to fog over, eat some of the chocolate.

    #116 by Edward — May 4, 2010 @ 6:14 am

  117. Hi Guys,

    I took CISSP on 8th May and while I was preparing for it,in April, I decided to register for CISA too as some of the topics overlap. CISA is scheduled on 12th june.I have 1.5 yrs of experience as a network security specialist.

    Now I am left with less than a month to prepare for CISA, which I have now realized is too less.So I am in a dilemma whether to defer the date or to give it a shot.Your advice would be highly appreciated.

    Cheers

    #117 by John — May 16, 2010 @ 8:17 am

  118. I read two chapters of the Sybex book and did the questions and I feel is not quite on the “same track” and the official guide, so I dropped it since I don’t want to get confused or waste my time in the last 3 weeks. I am studying the official guide, practicing with the official CD-Rom and studying also the Peter Gregory book “CISA Exam Guide” which I find veyr much in line, although, easier, that the official guide, which is good to make you understand some difficult concepts; then go back to the offical guide and you will undertand those areas much better.

    #118 by Onward — May 16, 2010 @ 8:27 am

  119. John:

    You have until May 27th with a $100 fee to defer the exam.

    How are you doing on the practice exams? My scores were in the 70s and I still passed, barely. If money is an issue then I would defer.

    How much background do you have in auditing and security? If this is a new area to you it could be a tough sell.

    Think of the little train that could and keep saying yes I can. The only way I can think of you passing the exam is when you wake up you study for an hour, take a break and then back to study. Really concentrate on the CRM and the test CD. From what I heard a lot of questions on the test CD are also on the test.

    #119 by Edward — May 16, 2010 @ 9:18 am

  120. I have masters degree in computer networks and couple of years experience in network security(firewalls,asa,ids,vpn) and no experience in audit as such.I have not even started with practice exams, I am on first chapter of CRM, but cissp concepts are quite fresh and thorough.
    Money is not an issue,but is it worth just giving an attempt to get the idea, so that I am better prepared for December?or should I defer it?

    #120 by John — May 16, 2010 @ 9:37 am

  121. Guys,

    I cleared the test.Thanks for the info on this page.
    Score is not mentioned in the email,when do we get that?

    #121 by John — May 26, 2010 @ 9:11 am

  122. I m a grad from Information Security, I am taking the CISA exam on June 12/2010. Any one same like me here?

    #122 by Nick — May 26, 2010 @ 11:51 pm

  123. Do you think Questions on CISA exam are like the ISACA Questions and Answers format?

    #123 by Nick — May 27, 2010 @ 9:22 pm

  124. So are there really a lot of questions taken from the CD? I’m just curious what percentage most of you are getting while doing the practice questions from the 2010 CD? I am getting like 65-70% on the “new” questions that I haven’t seen before. Getting worried.

    #124 by HCT — June 6, 2010 @ 8:43 am

  125. Go to a doctor and get a script for Xanax. Works wonders during the test.

    #125 by Edward — June 6, 2010 @ 4:45 pm

  126. Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you could lose.

    #126 by Edward — June 7, 2010 @ 8:14 pm

  127. Sit my CISA exam yesterday. FYI: Two or three questions were straight from the test exam, couple more were close to the test exam too. Others were pretty inline with the overall mood of the official text exam too. Cheers and good lock to everyone! George

    #127 by George — June 12, 2010 @ 8:57 pm

  128. Took the exam on June 12th…and I agree with George…lots of material from the study guide. I actually came back and read the book after the exam to countercheck my answers….Looks like am anxiously waiting….no idea how the scoring works though!

    #128 by Martin — June 13, 2010 @ 8:33 am

  129. Well the wait is the worse. Half who take the test fail it. But when you get that email you passed, there isnt a drug like it.

    #129 by Edward — June 13, 2010 @ 7:56 pm

  130. For some reason, i felt that june 2010 exam was really tough. I was so very confused with the options as most of the questions had few options that were pretty close. Is there anyone, who felt similar experience.

    #130 by vijay — June 15, 2010 @ 1:47 pm

  131. Welcome to your own personal hell for the next 8 weeks.

    #131 by Edward — June 15, 2010 @ 2:12 pm

  132. June 2010 – More questions focussed on Biometrics and Fireextinguishers……
    I wrote in Chennai, India.

    Lets keep our fingers crossed for 8 weeks….

    #132 by Arul — June 19, 2010 @ 3:13 am

  133. It looked like the whole test covered only IS audit and BCP/DR. No specific question on Networking, database or program life cycle appeared in the test.

    #133 by Saad — June 22, 2010 @ 6:08 am

  134. 6 more weeks for the result….huh

    #134 by vijay — June 28, 2010 @ 7:25 am

  135. LOL, passing the test is only part of the battle. Once you pass you have to have someone endorse you for the last five years. Past people at previous companies will not answer your calls no matter what they said while you were there. No it doesnt matter to them that your entire future rides on this endorsement. Reminds of a line from a Alice Cooper song, I only know hell is getting hotter, devils getting smarter all the time.

    #135 by Edward — June 28, 2010 @ 7:47 am

  136. I wrote the exam on the 12th of June and it was a bit hectic .. now I am having nightmares waiting for the results! I wrote in SA and was totally blank when I left the examination room!

    #136 by Lee-Anne — July 18, 2010 @ 8:53 am

  137. When I left the exam I joked with someone outside, could you stick a pencil in my eye to see if it is less painful then the exam. Honestly I was burnt out for 3 days afterwards.

    Yes Lee-Anne the wait is painful but when you get that email saying you passed, there is nothing sweeter.

    #137 by Edward — July 18, 2010 @ 10:08 am

  138. With cram session study material I referred question dumps of 4 years of CISA exam and couldnt find much of use out of these dumps.I felt that not all the sylalbus was covered in this exam.

    I appeared from Chennai,India and biting my nails with tensed heart to see my result which is being very ambiguous one like how others also feel.

    Good luck to all

    #138 by vimal mani — July 19, 2010 @ 2:57 am

  139. The sweetest email I got was below and I did the happy dance for days after that.

    We are pleased to inform you that you successfully PASSED the exam with a total scaled score of 454. A scaled score of 450 or higher is required to pass, which represents the minimum consistent standard of knowledge as established by ISACA’s CISA Certification Committee. Your official score letter and application for certification will be sent by postal mail.

    The second sweetest email is below.

    Congratulations! We are pleased to inform you that on 8 June 2010 the CISA Certification Board approved your application and awarded you the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) designation.

    Now I have the over whelming feeling of confidence. When I go on job interviews I can say yes I am certified and endorsed.

    #139 by Edward — July 19, 2010 @ 5:00 am

  140. has anyone obtained the results of the June 12, 2010 test? I can’t wait, it was been almost 5 weeks now…I know they say 8 weeks but I just wondering, thanks!

    #140 by onward — July 19, 2010 @ 5:25 am

  141. I checked my test date and when I got my email notice and the time in between them was 47 days. So if they use the same format then on July 29 everyone should be getting “that email”. Maybe one day sooner due to one less holiday.

    #152 by shahid — July 30, 2010 @ 3:03 am

  153. Do what I did.

    I did my studying and took the test and there is nothing else I can do. So its out of my hands.

    So I went about my day and did all the stuff I normally would do.

    If the ISACA has your email they will send you a email on your test status.

    #153 by Edward — July 30, 2010 @ 4:11 am

  154. Edward, I do want to thank you for putting the info on timing out though. I had been searching everywhere for someone to say what it had taken previously… I’m sure it’s variable on how many people take the test, how many tests get run through (since it’s paper… good lord) and who knows what else at ISACA. So please… don’t stop sharing that info!

    #154 by Cory — July 30, 2010 @ 5:35 am

  155. Well the test results WILL be coming out any day now.

    Now I was thinking if I failed I would have to change my strategy on taking it. Something’s I knew were not on the test so I knew I would have to pay so much attention to them when I studied for the next exam.

    I was thinking of calling to find out what the pass/fail rate was on the exam. I heard the failure rate is 50%. Then I was wondering how many fail to get the endorsement. Once you get that sheep skin and lapel pin you are part of an elite club. I know I sound a little snotty but think of it. You passed a test with a 50% failure rate and you have at least 5 years of verifiable security/auditing work.

    Here is what I have seen on job interviews.
    Some companies have said oh you passed that test and that means what? They really don’t know what it is. Other companies are very impressed and putting CISA on my resume has gotten me interviews. Even though with the economy is in the toilet, I am getting roughly 4 interviews a week. If I had a degree I would be getting more.

    You don’t spell out CISA but say “sea-sa”. Also on ISACA, you say “I-sack-ah”. You know you have to earn 40 CPE credits a year to keep your cert. There are tons of freebie courses. I recently took an online one for VMware and security and got 3 CPE. There is another one coming up I would have to pay for but they show you how to do a full risk assessment in 5 day. At the end of the year there is a week-long conference in Vegas (ya baby) and you would earn 38 CPE.

    #155 by Edward — July 30, 2010 @ 7:08 am

  156. The quote I got when I asked a contact in the certification department at ISACA was:

    “At this point the results are still with our testing agency. The results will be released early August but we do not have a firm date for the release at this time. Appreciate the patience as I understand the wait is hard.”

    #156 by Larry — July 30, 2010 @ 8:41 am

  158. Here is what I am seeing on this board.

    A lot of people here took the CISA test very seriously and really prepared for it. I have a feeling that most if not all of the people here did pass the test. When you take preparation and add it to opportunity the result is success.

    Just hang in there, good things are coming.

    #158 by Edward — July 31, 2010 @ 5:02 am

  159. Friends, I believe the results would be out for sure max by next weekend and shud be declared most probably around 5th August…. Its really really too tiring to wait for so long patiently and then when the last bit is remaining our curiosity is on peaks levels….. its like the entire elephant is out yet the tail still remains to be moved out…. All The Best for the results to all who appeared for the cisa june 2010 exams…..

    #159 by piyush chavda — July 31, 2010 @ 5:24 am

  160. I sat CISA in Nairobi, Kenya. I had not been anxiously waiting for the results, but after reading your comments above, I have started getting anxious……and now eagerly anticipating……..I hope I get a sweet email.
    Thanks all for sharing your experience.

    #160 by Alfax — August 2, 2010 @ 1:51 am

  161. Anyone know how many people take the test? Just curious.
    Thanks.

    #161 by Cory — August 2, 2010 @ 7:12 am

  162. Seriously, I m losing my mind waiting for the stupid score.

    #162 by Mounir — August 2, 2010 @ 2:41 pm

  163. You know what..we/I did our/my best on this exam, studied hard and the result will be PASSED, lets be more optimistic even if we fail it’s not the end of the world!

    I just don’t care any more

    #163 by Tariq — August 2, 2010 @ 8:51 pm

  164. @Cory I found answer of your question in the ISACA 2009 Annual Report (http://www.isaca.org/About-ISACA/Press-room/Documents/2009AnnualReport.pdf)

    Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA)
    Number of exam registrants: More than 24,000
    (June and December combined)

    #164 by Gosho — August 3, 2010 @ 4:21 am

  165. @Gosho – Thank you! So, with 24000 applicants, say 12000 take the test in June… so they have to score and calculate a weighted result for 300 tests a day… I wonder if they do the whole thing by hand? :)

    #165 by Cory — August 3, 2010 @ 6:22 am

  166. From what I have seen on the answer sheet I believe they are done by machine. I have read if you disagree with your score you can petition the ISACA for a fee to hand score your test results.

    You may think this test was the worst you took. I took one that was the test from HELL. It was a strategic adaptive test. You have to study a manual that was three times the size of the CISA manual. You would be asked 8 to 10 questions. If you got all questions right they would only ask you 8 questions. All the answers were correct but one was more correct. They would ask you a question and if you got it wrong they would ask you two more similar questions. When you got to the ninth question you know you got something wrong and would be sweating bullets and ready to pass a gold brick.

    #166 by Edward — August 3, 2010 @ 6:46 am

  167. not getting discouraged by wat my friend EDWARD said here.. But , I feel, everyone who’s checking out the websites ang googlin…. had infact, prepared well for the exam. Guess no one can wait for the results… I hope and I pray I clear too.

    #167 by vikram — August 3, 2010 @ 10:18 am

  168. Vikram is right. They are taking tooo much time. I wish results be declared soon. I am waiting eagerly. I wish thay declare today itself. Does anyone know the tentative date of results??

    I wish all the best to all examinees for the best results.. regards,
    CA. Akshat

    #168 by akshat vithalani — August 3, 2010 @ 12:01 pm

  169. ffffffffffffffffffffffffffff…ok. I m not checking my email untill Saturday…F*** it.

    #169 by Mounir — August 3, 2010 @ 12:34 pm

  170. OK who wants to make a bet that Mounir will be checking his email in a hour.

    #170 by Edward — August 3, 2010 @ 12:40 pm

  171. Still waiting…I can’t stand opening my e-mail account and continuously refreshing the page. I am gonna lose my mind. God, help us all

    #171 by ufuk — August 3, 2010 @ 3:44 pm

  172. Edward I think every 30 min :D , I have a BlackBerry so as soon as they send it I will know, but I did last Dec exam and they declared the result in 7 week but I wasn’t really prepared so I failed but this time I really studied hard hope we will pass.

    ISACA web site these days not normal its on and off maybe this is the reason!

    #172 by Tariq — August 3, 2010 @ 8:34 pm

  173. The result should have been declared i wonder y isaca is taking dat long to declare the result this time coz previously they have been decalring result before eighth week starts ……

    anyways i think they will declare it today ……..

    i dont know how would it feel then……………

    #173 by shahid — August 3, 2010 @ 10:56 pm

  174. also one more thing ppl…. Due to XYZ reasons… the ISACA email might get filtered/delayed. The best way to check the result will be on the http://www.isaca.com .. my certifications section. All the best folks. Wish me luck too ;)

    #174 by vikram — August 3, 2010 @ 10:57 pm

  175. How one can be sure that myCertification section of myISACA is updated immediately after results are published ?

    #175 by Saad — August 4, 2010 @ 1:44 am

  176. I just got ISACA postal mail for next December exam – for registration. It was sent on 22nd of July 2010. Does it mean I failed, or everyone got that postal mail nevertheless they pass or fail the CISA exam?

    #176 by Vex — August 4, 2010 @ 1:51 am

  177. Vex after I got my notice that I passed the exam, I got those emails. I found them comical.

    #177 by Edward — August 4, 2010 @ 2:04 am

  178. @ Vex : I don’t think so. They would very clearly state if you’ have cleared the exam or otherwise. Waiting Waiting Waiting……

    #178 by vikram — August 4, 2010 @ 2:41 am

  179. Edward thanks for this information. Uhhh, so there is a hope I passed :). Good luck to everyone :)

    #179 by Vex — August 4, 2010 @ 2:41 am

  180. I too am getting sooo nervous. I cant wait until the scores are posted.

    #180 by WU — August 4, 2010 @ 8:08 am

  181. It seems to be weird or what I don’t know ???

    There is absolutely nothing to be seen under the page
    “ISACA > My ISACA > My Certifications Bookmarked Print My Certifications”

    It’s just empty….. what do you understand of this ????

    Hoping for the best to happen ??? Hope for the Positive Email to be received in a day or two max…..

    #181 by Piyush Chavda — August 4, 2010 @ 11:00 am

  182. I m not looking..

    #182 by Mounir — August 4, 2010 @ 11:36 am

  183. OK I keep reading about the stress a lot of people are going through waiting for their scores. It almost seems people are making it worse for them selfs. The test scores will be released any day now. You have done everything you can and its out of your hands.

    The only thing we don’t know is what day. They said 8 weeks and we are coming into it.

    Do what I did. I went about my life and did all the things I normally would do. When I got that email from ISACA it totally caught me by surprise.

    I know this may be little help to people but there is the serenity prayer.

    God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

    If it is to be then it is to be.

    #183 by Edward — August 4, 2010 @ 11:37 am

  184. great
    Edward.

    i like the way u think n prayer u mentioned.

    #184 by shahid — August 5, 2010 @ 12:20 am

  185. the area under “my certifications” was empty yest .. yes.. i think now they’ve updated it .. but still results are not out!

    #185 by vikram — August 5, 2010 @ 3:14 am

  186. I am now tired of refreshing myCertificatin page and have lost all hopes.

    #186 by Saad — August 5, 2010 @ 3:51 am

  187. myCertification page contains only frames :(

    #187 by Saad — August 5, 2010 @ 4:13 am

  188. imagine if u gonna receive a mailer saying that you have “CLEARED” the exam… wat wud u feel …??? :)

    #188 by vikram — August 5, 2010 @ 4:29 am

  189. Will foget/ forgive my sufferings while waiting !

    #189 by Saad — August 5, 2010 @ 4:54 am

  190. A Passing score is all I ask for!

    #190 by Amjad — August 5, 2010 @ 5:15 am

  191. thats wat we all ask for … A PASSING SCORE. Btw , my african friend had also prepared for the exam, he’s bothered bout how much will the exam score wud be.. not just PASSING!

    #191 by vikram — August 5, 2010 @ 5:34 am

  192. THIS IS HOW MYCERTIFICATION PAGE IS AT MY BROWSER.

    CISA Certification Summary
    Certification Status: Not Certified – Exam Registrant – Results Pending Overall Score:
    Exam Language: English Exam Location: 8680-Lahore, Pakistan

    I think there is some problem wid the browser who is just seeing frames doesnt mean that result has been updated……………..

    but it has to b updated……………

    TODAY MAY BE ……… I GUESS TODAY 5TH AUG.

    #192 by shahid — August 5, 2010 @ 5:42 am

  193. May be only those who have passed see only frames !

    Just kidding :)

    #193 by Saad — August 5, 2010 @ 6:00 am

  194. Since they said 8 weeks vs. equivalent of days I’m going to say tomorrow or even Saturday… And if they’re having issues… maybe even longer. At this point I don’t care if I failed – I just want to know. This would be an interesting study in human behaviour.

    #194 by Cory — August 5, 2010 @ 6:10 am

  195. I just looked at the dates. On 8/7 it will be 8 weeks. As in you getting your results on this Saturday, no. I do not think they work on Saturday. Judging by the time I got mine, results will be out in the late afternoon, Central Standard Time.

    Why I got my results early and now they seem to be running late is anyones guess. Maybe so many took the test and it created a back log.

    #195 by Edward — August 5, 2010 @ 6:45 am

  196. this whole week was horrible…checking mails every evening and early morning….this phase is bad..at least today the mail from ISACA shuld be in my mailbox

    #196 by Anagha — August 5, 2010 @ 7:34 am

  197. Guys,

    Apparently, according to my very informal research, the last year, when the test was on June 13th, they delivery teh results on August 6th.

    If we apply an analogy, it could be today the day…

    Fingers Crossed … Good Luck everyone!!!!

    #197 by CR9 — August 5, 2010 @ 8:02 am

  198. I have never ever waited so anxiously for any of my previously attempted professional certification exam results…. this wait has tested all the limits of my patience and have learned some good lesson on controlling your patience for any of your tasks to be completed….

    #198 by Piyush Chavda — August 5, 2010 @ 8:02 am

  199. Fingers crossed….GOD!!!!!

    #199 by Anagha — August 5, 2010 @ 8:09 am

  200. Which thing will be first done…updation of your profile “My Certifications” or u will receive mail first?

    #200 by Anagha — August 5, 2010 @ 8:11 am

  201. There is a proverb on patience which is “Patience Always Bears Sweet Fruits” …. Hope this proverb would be proven right to all of us and would be receiving the sweet sweet email of “CISA Exam Notification” saying “PASSED” in our respective mail boxes….. ALL THE BEST TO ALL THE CANDIDATES.. ITS NOW JUST A MATTER OF FEW HOURS I HOPE AND THE WAIT WOULD BE OVER FOR GOOD… GOD BLESS ALL…..

    #201 by Piyush Chavda — August 5, 2010 @ 8:15 am

  202. To tell the truth Anagha I am not sure. I didnt check the web site but got the notice in a email.

    #202 by Edward — August 5, 2010 @ 8:23 am

  203. sAAD:………………….

    MAY B U RRIGHT .

    I CANT SAY ANYTHING FOR SURE . BUT I HOPE I MAKE IT

    #203 by shahid — August 5, 2010 @ 11:53 am

  204. Oh no results just came to me…FAILED…I was hoping for passed..

    #204 by Ford — August 5, 2010 @ 11:56 am

  205. My co-worker Art just got his congradulations. He passed with a 657. Anyone else?

    #205 by Ford — August 5, 2010 @ 12:07 pm

  206. Ford I am not rubbing it in but what was your score? They do break it down by domains. Least you know where you were lacking so you know what to study harder on.

    #206 by Edward — August 5, 2010 @ 12:08 pm

  207. hey Art..Congrats..can u check to see whether the passed status appears on ur ISACA account (myCertifications) too…

    #207 by Abc — August 5, 2010 @ 12:18 pm

  208. @Guys who are thinking a pass = certified, umm nope.
    You get certifed after a few years after you PASS the test.

    #208 by Al — August 5, 2010 @ 12:21 pm

  209. @chevy… not encouraged by the assessment the test will get harder. ugh. haven’t received results yet. but am really eagerly waiting now.

    #209 by Cory — August 5, 2010 @ 12:24 pm

  210. Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end.

    Life is often much like a chess game. Sometimes to move forward we have to temporally move backward.

    #210 by Edward — August 5, 2010 @ 12:25 pm

  211. Al once you pass the test you down load the endorsement form. You have people fill it out and you fax it in. If you have all the right stuff in about 2 weeks to 2 months you get your cert.

    #211 by Edward — August 5, 2010 @ 12:32 pm

  212. @Ford – what time zone are you in? Wondering how long the emails have been churning… haven’t heard anything yet. I don’t blame you for feeling bad. I will be seriously dissapointed if I don’t pass.

    #212 by Cory — August 5, 2010 @ 12:33 pm

  213. congrats to all those who passed, and commisarations to anyone who failed. it is even more excrutiation knowing that the results are out but the emails haven’t hit everyones accounts yet, mine included!

    #213 by Mary — August 5, 2010 @ 12:35 pm

  214. you wouldn’t think that the time zones make much difference??

    #214 by Mary — August 5, 2010 @ 12:37 pm

  215. time zone lets me know how long the emails have been being sent. if Ford is in Eastern US then it’s been over 3 hours… if he’s in Pacific then it’s only been about 30 minutes… and it could take longer. I’m figuring they are sending about 12k and can do so many per second etc…

    #215 by Cory — August 5, 2010 @ 12:40 pm

  216. oh… and looks like it’s been about 40 minutes. the stamp on the site is pacific

    #216 by Cory — August 5, 2010 @ 12:41 pm

  217. @Alicia. So sorry! Ouch. that’s soooo close. I hope you’ll try again.

    #217 by Cory — August 5, 2010 @ 12:47 pm

  218. Congrats to all that passed! My condolences to those that didn’t. I am anxiously waiting for my result as well and, at this point, just want closure to this godforsaken saga. Just curious, what was the email subject title?

    #218 by HD — August 5, 2010 @ 12:55 pm

  219. And then you wont dare open it

    #219 by Mary — August 5, 2010 @ 1:00 pm

  220. Thanks guys! This wait is KILLING ME!

    #220 by HD — August 5, 2010 @ 1:02 pm

    #221 by HD — August 5, 2010 @ 1:08 pm

  222. I’ve waited long enough so I’m just going to open the email immediately upon receiving it. In terms of celebrating a pass, I’ll be celebrating with a new job!

    #222 by HD — August 5, 2010 @ 1:11 pm

  223. I’m hitting the local watering hole regardless of whether I pass or not!

    #230 by Birgit — August 5, 2010 @ 4:17 pm

  246. Has anyone in NY got their results yet?

    #246 by Kay — August 5, 2010 @ 6:07 pm

  247. If Alabama received scores and I’m in Florida, it looks like the distribution is relatively random. Perhaps by member number, last name or otherwise. Don’t think I’ll sleep much tonight.

    #247 by Janice — August 5, 2010 @ 7:12 pm

  248. Anyone from Pakistan has yet got results ?

    #257 by Saad — August 5, 2010 @ 9:14 pm

  258. Saad couldn’t possibly be manually else it would take ages.

    #258 by Amjad — August 5, 2010 @ 9:27 pm

  273. Welll, it seems it was a stupid joke to give us all a stressful and sleepless night….. but it was wl targeted to all the cadidates awaiting their results. Well done Tom, ART, …. i believe every1 has spent time checking their emails frequently event more frequently. isn’t. ISACA will not declare results to just one part of the US. it has to be for all @ once.
    Today, probably, ISACA shall declare results..

    Wish you all the best.. CHEERs

  288. I think there is somebody trying to fool us..He said that he passed with 821 score. Please note the maximum score is 800. They are playing us, the results not yet arrived…

    #288 by ahmed — August 6, 2010 @ 3:00 am

  289. so actually no one got the results yet!

    #289 by Tariq — August 6, 2010 @ 3:04 am

    #292 by Muyo — August 6, 2010 @ 3:21 am

    #293 by Muyo — August 6, 2010 @ 3:31 am

  294. @ Muyo true because last time every one got the results in the same time + it’s late night in US so if there is email coming it will be after 3-4 hours at least

    #294 by Tariq — August 6, 2010 @ 3:38 am

  295. yeah Edward the peeps that saw their results where are they defend your claims

    #295 by Muyo — August 6, 2010 @ 3:45 am

  296. First of all there are two Edwards on this list.

    Why some people are getting their scores now and others are still waiting is anyone’s guess. What goes on behind at the ISACA closed doors is a mystery.

    To all the people who did pass could you do a quick write up your experience and what study methods you used. Also include all books you read.

    This will help out the people who did not pass.

    #296 by Edward1 — August 6, 2010 @ 4:05 am

    #301 by Sam — August 6, 2010 @ 5:39 am

  302. Here is what I think is happening.

    They have a program where they get someone’s score and they manually enter it into their file. After they have done a batch a second program goes through all the done ones and sends out the email of a either pass or fail.

    I bet there are only a few people doing this and there are a lot of test scores to go through, so it is going to be slow.

    I also feel they are not hiring temp workers to do this because they are concerned there will be a planted person who will put in a passing score when they should put in a failing one.

    #302 by Edward1 — August 6, 2010 @ 6:01 am

  303. the post number 314 with my name is fake, I havent received any email yet. Some is just playing around.

    #304 by Khizer — August 6, 2010 @ 6:26 am

  305. Bill, it shall not take more than 2-3 Hours to notify 12k users @ once. since these are text messages and their messaging system shall be easily processing 15-30 messages/sec.

    #305 by Bangash — August 6, 2010 @ 6:26 am

  306. Jerry!, if this is the case why dont they say this to public on their website. All the candidates are stakeholders and shall be notified by any means of communications at least we will not further waste our time checking emails more frequently.

    #306 by Bangash — August 6, 2010 @ 6:36 am

  307. I can’t wait to write a paper from the attitude of people on this blog, every body seem to be guessing,all blame to ISACA who can’t issue out an official statement

    #307 by Muyo — August 6, 2010 @ 6:37 am

  308. Any posts claiming to have received scores are false. Per a call to ISACA, they have not even received the scores from the testing firm yet. The current statement is “by the end of next week.”

    #308 by Legitimate — August 6, 2010 @ 6:39 am

  309. I also called the Chicago office (HQ) and the lady said another 7-10 days. She confirmed that they have not yet released any result.

    #309 by Saad — August 6, 2010 @ 7:28 am

  310. Just to add that I called ISACA about 30 minutes ago (number as per previous post) and received the same message, or rather, ‘the results will be issued some time next week, date not yet known’. Art, you sound pretty desperate to get people believing in you again – the truth coming out has obviously spoiled your fun. Are you behind all of the ‘results received’ posts, or just some of them?

    #310 by Mary — August 6, 2010 @ 8:06 am

  311. PS, does anyone know of a CISA forum that requires a logon and password so that we can discuss the exams etc without wasting our time like this?

    #311 by Mary — August 6, 2010 @ 8:07 am

  313. I really think someone is playing games with everyone. If this is true then it is a VERY sick joke and personally find this behavior very immature. Finding humor in someone else’s anguish is a sign of a deep seated psychosis.

    #313 by Edward1 — August 6, 2010 @ 8:14 am

  314. Absolutely – I cannot fathom why anyone would find amusement in this. It can only be a child or, as you say, due to some kind of psychosis. It is definitely true that the results haven’t come out – anyone who doubts it, please call ISACA Certification on 1 847 660 5660

  324. Results have not yet been released. If you have heard word otherwise, they are incorrectly informing you. We are looking to the release by the end of next week. I have checked your record and find that you did elect to receive the email notification. When released, the email notification normally goes first, followed with the hard copy result letter.

    bit relaxed now….

    #326 by Bangash — August 6, 2010 @ 1:42 pm

  327. Just confirming one more time what we already know about it…

    Exam results should be released within 7-10 days or at the end of next week. When released, they will be released by hard copy result letter and a one-time email notification notice to those who consented to item #25 on the registration form and do not have a balance due on their exam fee. To ensure the confidentiality of scores, exam results will not be reported by telephone, fax or email other than the one-time notification email.

  332. Well, nothing in HK as well.
    I am also doubt that it will be late as well..
    However, I believe ISACA should send an email to notify the candidates about the delay of result, so that not make everyone expecting today but disappointed finally.

    #332 by Norman — August 7, 2010 @ 5:14 am

  333. Well its ISACA’s game and its their ball. So you have to play by their rules. Rather than rush to judgement on the results they are being very detailed. The end results will be very well worth it.

    #333 by Edward1 — August 7, 2010 @ 9:24 am

  334. Here in India waiting for the Results so very anxiously…. Being for the First Time that I am giving such a long time oriented result awaiting professional exam …. and it is realy really so very time consuming and patience demanding…..

    #334 by janak — August 7, 2010 @ 11:52 am

  335. What makes this certification so valuable is.

    It is only given twice a year. It is a very long and exhaustive exam. All the people I know have said after the test they felt like a wet towel that was rung out. Although you can challenge your test results they are usually on the money. You must have endorsements from the last 5 years or with 3 with school. When you show a future employer the certification or they see the lapel pin, there is no doubt that you know IT auditing.

    Now on the other hand. You can take the Microsoft or Cisco test week after week until you pass it. Also you can pass those tests and not even seen one of those systems.

    #335 by Edward1 — August 7, 2010 @ 12:53 pm

  336. OK I stand corrected. If you go for the Cisco CCIE you do have to take a test in a lab.

    But years ago when I was in school for my CNE there was on person who had that cert. One day we had to open a computer and they said oh so thats what inside.

    #336 by Edward1 — August 8, 2010 @ 3:48 am

  344. @ Arul: meaning we have to extend again for another week waiting the result..I thought this week is the schedule since they delay already for 1 week…Hope the reason of the delay is because they are increasing the quota of passing rate.. so that our prolonging agony of waiting will not be in vain…

  347. The protracted wait is somewhat understandable but the fact that they do not have a “firm” date of when results will be released is ridiculous. It’s not like there was an essay portion of the test that had to be manually scored. Multiple choice Scantron exams shouldn’t be that hard to grade…

    #347 by HD — August 10, 2010 @ 9:00 am

  348. ISACA should be ashamed of themselves. What take long scoring an exam that is multiple choice? Why is this exam still paper-based? What are their prices for books, materials, conferences, exams, membership, etc ridiculously overpriced? The answer is to keep cost down and maximize profits. Money making scam if I ever heard one!

  360. Who would you rather have work on your house?

    A carpenter who favorite saying is its close enough for government work. Did the job fast but sloppy job.

    Or a carpenter that took his time, made sure everything was perfect. When he got near the end if he saw a problem they went back as far as they have to make sure everything worked correctly.

    The people who took this test paid a lot of money to do so. So in turn you would expect the results to be very accurate?

    From what I have seen so far the ISACA is a very good organization. You can download free white papers, search for jobs, and be informed of upcoming seminars.

    You could take another cert that is maybe a few ambiguous questions and be informed right away and have no real support organization behind you. But then they don’t carry the weight of the ISACA.

    No offense, but don’t you think 9 weeks is a bit too much for a 200 MC question exam?

    There are other professional qualification exams that I have taken before that were all essay written (with at least 5 questions per paper) and they took 10 weeks to mark.

    #362 by edwards — August 11, 2010 @ 8:06 am

  363. Apart from the insult and certainly some immature gestures… I don’t know you, but I paid for everything in ISACA… These “free papers” and so on…I paid for membership, for the chapter (even if it is only for promote consulting firms).

    I am also very disappointed about how ISACA manages the test´s results… We play by their rules… They said 8 weeks, well, we expected the results on this week… Imagine, if this is a institution which planning everything… twice a year, specific rooms, dates, hours, proctors… and so on.. of course, planning their own deadline for delivery the results… And they are available to explain what´s going on…Very cheap beahvior…

    Let me tell you that we paid for that service… The service do not finish when we took the exam… It closes when they giving our score.

    I do not see either professional nor ethic put the announcement on Tuesday 10th, that “Exam Results Released the Week of 9 August…” Dude, if you knew there was a delay then put it the previous week, put it as soon as you know, but know the same week and one day after the week stared it.

    I do not want to think that this is the value of those kind of certification… I guess the value is the minimum level of Knowledge and experience that each CISA professional has it

    Anyway, I guess this part of this journey…

    #363 by Jeff — August 11, 2010 @ 8:20 am

  364. I’m going to have to agree with Jeff. We have given them more than enough time to grade our exams. It was a multiple-choice scan-tron test…I can’t imagine that it could take almost over 9 weeks to be able to give us a simple PASS/FAIL email. I have taken other exams for certifications that were also multiple-choice and within a day or two I got an email with a preliminary grade of PASS/FAIL. The true results were then sent via mail/email within 2-3 weeks. As for Edward1’s analogy to a carpenter, it doesn’t really work too well, since more time equals more money out of the homeowners pocket, if the carpenter couldn’t finish the job in a reasonable time, they would be fired.

    We’ll see how good their judgement is for when people who have failed the June 2010 test are scrambling to register for the December 2010 test within the discounted time frame. If they have any logical sense, they will extend that deadline.

  367. They will release on Friday the 13th just to mess with us. At least there’s a couple of days until early registration discount for December 2010 exams. Let’s hope most of us don’t need it, or if we do ;-) that our employers will pay for it.

    #367 by Could be anyone — August 11, 2010 @ 5:08 pm

  368. Damn! We thought our long wait is over. I almost can’t swallow the food I eat and can’t sleep at night. These past few days were so distressful, thinking of possible results. I guess we have to wait until tomorrow (Friday, the 13th). God bless us all guys!

    #369 by HD — August 11, 2010 @ 5:28 pm

  370. I guess we have to wake up again tomorrow early morning (Friday, the 13th). According to the past batches who took the exam, they have received their email notification FRIDAY morning.

    ISACA…if you read this forum, please send us the results not later than tomorrow so our agony will be over. ='(

  371. @ Anonymous – right. The mental torture is unbearable. I just couldn’t think I was able to withstand around eight weeks waiting for the result. And now on the ninth, it’s a matter of clock ticking for the most important email of our life so far.

    Keep the positive energy flowing! God bless and goodluck to all of us.

  372. OMG… since last August 6 we always have to wake up early in the morning and check our emails just to see if the sender was “EXAM” and hopefully/prayerfully seeing the “CONGRATULATIONS for passing the CISA Exam”.

    If by tomorrow (August 13, 2010) the results would be finally released then the long agony of waiting will be over. We already put our best effort during our review and the exam, next thing we should do is to let HIM (God) do the rest. ;)

    I want to greet in advance all the CISA Examiners this June 2010 CONGRATULATIONS! Let’s already claim the title. hihi *wink wink*

  380. You know guys, IMHO the reason of such long delay is the interface connecting a results database to ISACA’s bulk mailing system. Another one may be some cruel corruption of the results database in July so they need to rescan a lot of paper answer forms.

    also, any books, besides de office guide that you recommend?

  404. I have 14 years of IT experience. I used the 2009 review manual plus 400 of the practice questions.

    Questions are tricky, sometimes 2 and even 3 of the options are “right”, but you have to pick the best answer. This is when your past experience helps you out to pick the right answer.

    I recommend you do the same and study for at least 30 days, every day, 2 to 3 hours.

  411. Onwards roughly you missed by 13 questions. You got 137 right but you needed 150.

    Going in and signing your name you get 200 points. So a score of 600 divided by 200 questions gives you 3 points per question. But remember I said roughly. Some scores will have fractions to them.

    #411 by Edward1o1 — August 12, 2010 @ 6:14 pm

  412. That’s not true, remember there are 20 dummy questions on the test that are not counted towards your final score!

    #416 by Ben — August 13, 2010 @ 12:36 am

  417. Secrets to pass the exam are:

    1) Discipline- sacrifice your nightlife (party, gimmick) and turn your dining table into study table especially on saturdays and sundays (since i have work on Fridays)

    2) Patience- You need to streamline the review materials you would like to read (if the cover is interesting or if the font is your favorite). And digest it from your mind and heart. I just read CISA review manual 2010 (twice) and 900 questionnaires in CD. If you’re done with these materials, try to read CISA journals.

    3) Faith- trust yourself and offer your efforts to the Lord in everything you do during review.

    I did not ask the Lord to give me a passing grade. I asked him to give me strength in accepting whatever the results will be. =)

    #425 by Kinner — August 13, 2010 @ 7:38 am

  426. To the troll in post 412.

    If you go back to my post in 411, I did say ROUGHLY. Yes I am aware there are dummy questions in each exam. I actually think each exam has more and some have less. This would explain why one person got a 449 another got 450 and I got a 454. We are auditors and so we try to figure out how many questions we answered correctly. I am sure if you really wanted to you could figure out how many dummy questions there were.

    To all the peeps that got a passing grade, congratulations. I am sure you are still doing the happy dance. I did for days afterwards and kept reading that email over and over. Now go to the ISACA web site and down load the endorsement form, fill it out and fax it into them.

    For the people who did not pass. How I did it was, I started 3 months before the exam. Typically I spent 3 to 6 hours a day reading a CISA book. Once I finished one book I went out and bought another one. I would guess I was reading between 70 to 100 pages a day. It got to the point that all I thought about was CISA subjects. All the questions I got wrong on the practice test I researched why I got them wrong.

    #426 by Edward1o1 — August 13, 2010 @ 12:01 pm

  427. I’m told that there are some “control” questions on the exam that have NO right answer. ISACA is looking for patterns in the answers to look for cheating etc… So I imagine the exam scoring process is a heck of a lot more complicated than just running the scantron’s through a reader. If certain questions are answered incorrectly by a greater than “normal” number of people, maybe they revisit the question and make 2 answers acceptable. For sure it is not a simple “x out of 200” scoring system.

    #427 by Could be anyone — August 13, 2010 @ 6:53 pm

  428. “#427 by Could be anyone” that does explain a lot of things.

    The CISA is not your typical test. While they give the test they are constantly reviewing the test. Even though the ISACA is very accommodating still many do not pass.

    #428 by Edward1o1 — August 15, 2010 @ 7:41 am

    Bring a bottle of water and some semi-sweet chocolate bars into the exam hall. You will get thirsty and the chocolate will wake up your brain near the end of the exam. Some of the questions will scare you. Underline the operative word in the sentence. Think of yourself as the little engine that could and if you go down, you are going down swinging.

    #451 by MUstafa — December 10, 2010 @ 1:22 am

  452. Well this will be a stretch. There is more then one exam during the test. So if someone post a question and answer, you may not see it on your test.

    Besides don’t you think its odd that as a CISA you would be checking systems for people who are stealing and being less then honest?

    If you can not pass the test with out cheating maybe you are not cut out to be a CISA

    #452 by Edmondo — December 10, 2010 @ 8:55 am

  457. The results should be ready in 8 weeks. I finished the CISA exam in just over 2 hours. It was much easier than I thought it would be. 4 questions on my exam were copied verbatim from the official review or CISA self assessment.

    #457 by Wes — December 13, 2010 @ 8:00 am

  458. I took the exam on December 11. I m not sure about my answers but I can guess that I would have 140 questions which are correct. İf I say 75 percent to pass the exam I would fail but it is scaled score which is like a curve system like in the university I guess.

  460. Hey ppl. I appeared for the exam too. Now awating the results. This is my second time i’m giving it. Well, this time it went better than the last time. But I feel, the question pattern is such, that even after the exam , one can’t say for 100% sure that he/she will clear the exam. Another painful factor is that we need to wait for almost 2 months before the result comes out… Is 75% passing or is 50% passing , cos’ i know out of 800 we need 450 to pass it.

    #460 by vikram — December 14, 2010 @ 4:51 am

  461. i don`t know about the real score i think in isaca web site they said 450 but if you ask people they said it`s 75%,any way we are waiting for passing result ,good luck every one.,in god we trust

    #461 by MUstafa — December 14, 2010 @ 6:27 am

  462. I did the CISA exam on Dec 11th. I can say that the only consolation is the need for 450 to pass it. The questions were stretched to the elastic limit

    #462 by sam — December 14, 2010 @ 7:22 am

  463. Ok you have taken the test and now waiting for the results. I highly suggest that you go on with your life and what happens, happens. It is what it is. In the beginning that is all I thought about but then I let it go. I thought if I failed then I would take it again. When I did get the email from ISACA I was surprised.

    If you studied hard then chances are you will have passed.

    As in figuring out the way they score the test. Let it go. You don’t have the inside scoop and you would be second guessing yourself. There are a million variables you don’t know about.

  464. Actually, since the CISA is scored on the same scale as the GMAT, GRE, and SAT sections it is reasonable to assume that the percentile scores on the CISA are within the same range as those other tests.

    #464 by Wes — December 14, 2010 @ 11:54 am

  465. It s weird that nobody is able to know this scoring system… well, we ll have to wait…

  467. What is the primary objective of IS Audit ?
    a) To check internal control relating to IS functions / assets
    b) to provide an opinion based on standards developed by professional organizations

    In my opinion, b is correct.

    #467 by Saad — December 22, 2010 @ 2:51 am

  468. Saad,

    Pay attention to the word Primary.

    Primary objective of IS Audit is to check internal control relating to IS functions / assets. A is correct.

    Option B; sounds like a judgmental opinion thing which is not the PRIMARY OBJECTIVE of IS Audit. Without checking or testing internal controls how can u detect, protect, recommend the controls for IS assets or functions. Standards used by one organization might not fit other, it might need compensating controls based on the risk based assessment.

    Hopefully, I was able to convey.

    Happy Holidays and God Bless.

    Cheers….

  469. Thanks Roger for well argued convincing response :)

    #469 by Saad — December 23, 2010 @ 4:38 am

  470. the exam was very very tricky.. there are questions that have two answers that are very convincing.. you can’t decide which is the BETTER answer..

    honestly i don’t know if I’ll be able to pass it.

    goodluck to us all.

    #470 by Hyperion — January 4, 2011 @ 8:31 am

  471. A question:
    An IS Auditor has found out irregularities while conductin an audit. What is the next action to do:
    a) Inform the law enforcement agencies immediately
    b) Inform auditee management
    c)Inform both auditor and auditee management

    I could not find the exact answer anywhere

    #471 by Saad — January 6, 2011 @ 4:01 am

  472. Saad,

    Your options seems to be incomplete. Anyways, based on your choices. This is what I think, the answer should be your question.

    c) Inform both Auditor’s and Auditee’s Management. So both the Auditor’s and Auditee’s Management are aware of the facts and there are less chances of fraud occurrence. You as an auditor should advise both management to seek legal advise.

    Reasoning : a) is not an appropriate action on Auditor’s part, he needs to make his and Auditee’s management aware of the facts.

    Option b) is not correct, what if Auditee’s Management has some contribution to those irregularities and they can override controls which indicates there could be a fraud occurrence by their Management.

    Here’s an article from ISACA….

  473. Based on past experience, does anyone know the most likely date the CISA exam results will be out?
    How did everyone else feel they did?

    #473 by forever hopeful — January 10, 2011 @ 1:58 am

  474. As per the criteria of 8 Weeks, the result should be out before Feb 10. The feeling of how we did can be answered after the results. All the Best anyways

    #474 by Saturn — January 10, 2011 @ 3:08 am

  475. What I am concerned is will we get a decent job after CISA with all the Hype around it. Reading the books and ISACA site, this seems an ultimate job, but dont know.

    #475 by Saturn — January 10, 2011 @ 3:09 am

  476. oh my god i can`t wait any more,really i need this mail”you passed” so now you are CISA

    #495 by Saturn — January 28, 2011 @ 5:12 pm

  496. I have not received any notification yet. For those that have passed, are your results showing up on the ISACA website in myCertifications?

    Also, what country are those people from that have received results?

    I am in Texas, USA. No email and the myCertifications page on the ISACA website comes up blank.

    #496 by justagirl — January 28, 2011 @ 5:48 pm

  497. @justagirl. I got my results at 7:10 am local time in Australia. Thankfully it was a pass. The email stated that

    “PLEASE NOTE: Additional information is NOT available within your ISACA online profile. In the next few days, your official score letter will be sent by postal mail to your Preferred Mailing address (HOME).”

    Which would explain why results aren’t on the myCertifications page yet.

    #497 by AussieOi! — January 28, 2011 @ 6:11 pm

  498. i passed the exam ^^.. got a score of below 450 in 3 domains..
    good thing the other 3 were high..

    Good luck everyone

    #504 by Robert1x — January 29, 2011 @ 1:44 am

  505. I don’t think CISM is being released at same time. The original email from ISACA said CISM being released on the 31st. Then a subsequent message came out saying there was an error and that it was the CISA results being released on the 31st.

    #505 by justagirl — January 29, 2011 @ 5:18 am

  506. This is the second ISACA exam i appeared…both the time result got delayed…anyway fingers crossed….GOD!

    #517 by forever hopeful — January 31, 2011 @ 7:15 am

  518. I called ISACA and apparently when I registered I didn’t mark the box to give them permission to relase my scores via email. My bad. So apparently I now have to wait for the hard copy results to be stuffed and mailed.

    #520 by piyushchavda — January 31, 2011 @ 11:15 am

  521. There is lot of confusion on the scaling of score. Per ISACA website, 200 is minimum possible score; if you do all wrong, you will get 200. 450 is 75 percentile (just adding 250 to all wrong). Some people say it is percentage, not percentile. Maximum possible score is 800. Can someone figure out the intricacy of the system !

    #521 by Saad — February 1, 2011 @ 12:16 am

  522. Did they say when they thought you would get it by mail?

    #522 by R. Millen — February 1, 2011 @ 5:21 am

    #523 by Joy — February 1, 2011 @ 5:28 am

  524. R. Millen–the lady I spoke with was very unspecific and anxious to get me off the phone. All she told me was “they will be stuffed and mailed sometime this week” and that the results would not be made available online until after all emails had been sent and hard copies mailed. I didn’t probe any further but I’m not sure if that means they won’t post the results until they are mailed or until after they think everyone has received their hard copy results.

    #524 by justagirl — February 1, 2011 @ 7:17 am

  525. Several other large scale exams work on an 200 – 800 point scaled score (SAT sections, GMAT, GRE, etc). 450 generally translates to the ~50th percentile. Make of that what you will.

    #525 by Wes — February 1, 2011 @ 11:06 am

  526. Info on scaled scoring. This document speaks specifically to a different test but the underlying theory is the same.

  528. I passed w/ 525… first time…What a relief… All the studying paid off! I can’t describe the feeling. I think this was one of the hardest tests I have taken because of the subjective nature of the questions…To those who passed, congratulations! To those whom the moment of victory has been delayed, take it again and as someone earlier said, we will be waiting to greet you!

    #528 by DaveL — February 10, 2011 @ 12:40 pm

  529. Did the notifications go out in the mail already? I have not received mine.

    #529 by Gary — February 10, 2011 @ 1:00 pm

  530. I called ISACA again Monday and at that time they were still in the process of printing and mailing the results. The woman was very non-specific and said they would be all mailed ‘by the end of the week’ and it would be at least a couple more weeks before the results were reflected online. I still haven’t received my results and the early registration deadline is tomorrow and I have doubts as to whether I will receive my results before then. I called ISACA today and they said if I receive my results after the deadline and don’t pass, I can email and request an exemption to the early registration deadline.

    #530 by justagirl — February 10, 2011 @ 1:20 pm

  531. Thanks for finding that out – its a little crazy that for a CISA test they cant update the isaca website to let you know if you passed??? Im going a little crazy waiting.

    #531 by R. Millen — February 10, 2011 @ 7:41 pm

  536. I am still waiting for the results and getting really mad at this very unprofessional behaviour of ISACA. It is now 16th of Feb, more than two months and still nothing heard from them. For God sake, when you expect the candidates to follow the hard deadlines and rules set by you, you should also set an example.

    The more I think abt it, the more I feel that ISACA is just a Mickey Mouse organisation without any sense of responsibility!

    Dear xxxx

    We recently received your application for the CISA certification. By passing the exam and applying for certification, you have taken a significant step in distinguishing yourself from other professionals.

    The processing of your application has begun and the time needed to complete it (up to 8 weeks) will depend on whether or not we have received all of your documentation (verification form(s), transcripts, etc). Should any additional information be required, you will receive a separate e-mail outlining the missing information.

    Thank you for your interest in ISACA’s Certification program.

  540. Hello fellow CISA test takers past and present!

    I go for attempt number 1 in June. I’m scoring between 60-70% on the 1000 guestion bank I bought from ISACA. My weakest areas are networking and IT Security Protection. I’m a CMA/CIA and I really want to get this. It will be the last certification I go for, honest! I bought the 5 modules from ISACA, the All-In-One book by Peter Gregory and CISA Study Guide by David Cannon. I’m finding the books quite a bit better than the ISACA modules. I’m still confused by the scaled grading but doesn’t a score of 450 translate into less than 50% correct?

    #540 by Russ F. — April 17, 2011 @ 4:41 pm

  541. I’m also scoring between 60-70% on the practice questions from ISACA. Anyone know roughly what percentage we need to pass the exam ??

    #541 by jason — June 8, 2011 @ 2:29 pm

  542. Dear Fellow CISA Examinees,

    Wish All the Best for the June 2011 Exam scheduled for 11th June, 2011. May you appear the exam with Confidence and Complete Concentration and then wait for the exam results.

    All The Best for the Exam once again.

    #542 by Piyush Chavda — June 9, 2011 @ 2:06 am

  543. A scaled score of 450 does not equate to a 50% score. I used the ISACA questions database and their online review course and kept doing questions until I scored a 90%. I ended up with a individual scores ranging from 475 to 750 and a consolidated score of 662. I never did receive a score presented as a %. I failed to indicate I wanted my results via email so unless they provide a % in the email, they no longer present them as a %.

    #543 by justagirl — June 9, 2011 @ 4:58 am

  544. Hello Fellow CISA Examinees,

    How was the exam for all those who appeared for CISA June 2011 today morning. I feel I performed well for the exam and now is the 8 weeks long wait to go by. Hope to get the PASSED email. by the 1st week of August.

  547. I have been an Auditor for about 3 years, I read the book and went over the questions on each chapter until I achieved 90% or better. Went to the test and felt unprepared. Looking back I should have read the book over and over versus the questions. Alot of the questions were very difficult with the way they were worded. I went through after the test and changed about 4 answers then said ok I’m done lol. I counted about 110 questions where I thought I was absolutely correct the others it was very close. I’m pretty disappointed in myself but hopefully somehow I will come through. Anyone have any advice or thoughts regarding my analyzation:)

  548. I took the exam on the 11th and found there were around 10-15 guestions were I could get it down to two choices but then it was a guess. I felt good about the exam and now must wait the 8 weeks but I think I’ll look at completing the CISA application with the relevant work experience and waivers. I’ll keep my guarded optimism to myself right now as I could be disappointed in the grade but I’m hopeful I won’t be. It was grueling exam . . . not something you would want to go through too often. If I get the CISA I’ll be done because I’m also a CMA and CIA. Plus my wife would kill me!

    #548 by Russ F. — June 12, 2011 @ 2:09 pm

  549. This is my third time taking the exam on my first two attempts I scorde a 444 and a 406. This time I felt like the exam was extremely hard and I guessed on around 15 questions. Then on around 12-15 questions I narrowed it down to two possible solutions. I really hope I can pass and get it over with..Best of luck all other candidates!

    #549 by Ronald — June 13, 2011 @ 1:57 pm

  550. Ronald…What were your results as far as calculating what you thought you got right etc etc on the first exam?

    #550 by Johnny — June 13, 2011 @ 5:55 pm

  551. Johnny…I came out thinking I passed and was confident did not calculate the questions. The second exam I did not study due to work and knew I failed.

    #551 by Ronald — June 13, 2011 @ 6:04 pm

  552. I was not up to the mark with the way I answered.Lots of questions were infact confusing and about 8 questions loks like repeated but been asked in other way.I dont know If I was right/wrong with my analysis.If am right I ll be through..Out of curiosity, Did anyone felt questions were repeated ? or its just that am confused ? Fingers crossed.Good luck everyone.

    #552 by Kishore — June 14, 2011 @ 10:48 am

  553. yes, questions were repeated and were asked differently. If one answer was answered wrongly, it gave you chance to correct it too. Likewise, if the answer was answered correctly, it would confuse you to rethink bout that answer also.

    #553 by xyz — June 15, 2011 @ 12:00 am

  554. Took the 6/11 exam. First recommendation…DO NOT RELY AT ALL ON PRACTICE TEST QUESTIONS. If you want to pass read material and bag the questions. The sheer fact the test is based on choosing the best worst answer or the best wrong answer or the best of four right answers means that ISACA is not trying to certify professionals, but keep the pass rate down to look good. Having audited for over 8 years in IT with many certifications I can say that the CISA instead should test knowledge and not try to trick. Second it is time to throw out some things that IT auditors do not have time to do anymore like audit an entire project implementation, etc and instead add a regulatory domain which we are deal with now. ISACA spends too much time trying to keep the pass rate low.

    #554 by Michael — June 15, 2011 @ 2:55 pm

  555. I took it in December and got a 437, so I missed it by 13 points, at that time I did not have any of the ISACA material. I felt that if I had it I would have passed. This time I bought it and score 90% on the 200 question practice test. I went in very confident, but I left very disappointed in myself. Im not sure what I could have studied more. The test is very difficult. I would recommend the ISACA questions because they help you to figure out how the questions will be worded and how to narrow them down.

    #555 by R. Millen — June 17, 2011 @ 12:02 pm

  556. yes, i agree wid millen.. the question bank helps a LOT.. need to finsh the question bank, only then there’s a chance of clearing it. I bet on it.

    #556 by xyz — June 18, 2011 @ 11:34 am

  557. I took the exam twice now, one 8 years ago and got 73% (pass mark was 75%) and again last year and I got 443, I was gutted being so close both times. I feel that you have to know the CRM from cover to cover well. When I wrote in December I felt like the questions where such a waste of time, but you need to get into the frame of knowing of ‘how to think’ ISACA way. I have 9 years IT experience and somehow feel my experience does not help actually. The questions are ‘tricky’ and the answers sometimes makes you chose the obvious answer (which is actually a trap) as I have learnt twice now. I will be the Happiest person on the planet if I can clear this….. Good luck everyone……

    #557 by Shereen — June 20, 2011 @ 1:33 am

  558. Hi Friends,

    Does anyone have any idea as to How are the marks calculated ? Which Questioin carries how many marks or something like that. I wonder on the way they calculate on the passing percentile. This is my second attempt and hope for the best to happen for all of us. One and Half Weeks gone and 6 more to go…..

    #558 by Cisa Examinee — June 21, 2011 @ 11:09 pm

  559. Re the grading, I think 450 is the equivalent of 75%.

    The difference between the lowest possible score of 200 and the highest possible score of 800 is 600.

    450 is 75% of 600.

    Make sense???

    #559 by Stephen Smith — June 22, 2011 @ 10:49 am

  560. Regarding scoring…I have read elsewhere that they are weighted, and that there isn’t a simple “formula”. Some questions are worth more than others, and the decision about that isn’t made until all tests have been initially scored.

    I took it the first time in June 2011, and I am not at all certain how I did. I was scoring about 85-90 on the practice test questions, and I read the CRM about 4 times. I feel like I did what I needed to make sure I was prepared, but the test was still hard.

    Can’t wait to find out the scores.

    #560 by S Norton — June 23, 2011 @ 10:54 am

  561. We had someone come and train us and he used to work for ISACA, he told us that 50 of the questions are just thrown in there to see if they want to use them for other tests. Then for the rest of the questions they see how everyone does on them and if a bunch of people get one question wrong they will throw that question out. So they go back multiple times and review the scores and such. Hope that helps – also I thought the highest was 800 – not 600?

    #561 by R. Millen — June 25, 2011 @ 8:16 pm

  562. Stephen Smith , what you said makes sense ..

    Thanks

    #562 by TT — July 13, 2011 @ 5:59 pm

  563. As Stephen Smith posted:
    Re the grading, I think 450 is the equivalent of 75%.
    The difference between the lowest possible score of 200 and the highest possible score of 800 is 600.
    450 is 75% of 600.
    Make sense???
    —–
    and that might mean you need to get 150 out of 200 questions. WOW

    #563 by TT — July 14, 2011 @ 3:44 pm

  564. I also heard that if all of your questions are incorrect still you ll get 200 marks.In that case how marks will be awarded between 200 to 600 in question ?

    #564 by Kishore — July 15, 2011 @ 3:02 am

  565. But let’s not forget that it has been stated multiple times by ISACA that it is a scaled score. Not a cookie cutter test. There is quite a bit of analysis that goes into the scoring/grading.

    What bothers me about the 75% formula that you all are using, is that if you are adjusting a scale of200-800 to be 0-600 (in essence removing 200 points from the possible points), then wouldn’t you also need to remove the same 200 from the possible score? So really you would only need to get 250 out of 600 or 41.67%.

    I am just going to patiently wait for my score, and hope for the best. Good luck to you all.

    #565 by S Norton — July 15, 2011 @ 8:40 am

  566. Third ISACA Exam….hope result is out in time for this exam. GOD….:)

    #567 by TT — July 19, 2011 @ 4:23 pm

  568. It takes atleast 8 weeks to announce the results..So I dont think you can expect results before Aug 6th….

    #568 by Kishore — July 19, 2011 @ 5:08 pm

  569. But friend of mine took December exam and he got his result on 28th of January this year and the exam was on 11 of DEC, also if you see some comments above from people who got their resilts on 28th of JAN notice the date of the comments..

    Good Luck everyone…

    #604 by S Norton — August 2, 2011 @ 11:28 am

  605. Wow passed with a 636. I didnt use anything but the ISACA q and a database. I do have my CISSP plus a few GIAC certs so the was a lot of repeat material.

    Material I didn’t think was that hard it was more understanding the questions intent and identifying key words like primary, first etc. Taking the practice questions did it for me. Understanding all the answers to each question and not just the right one but why it wasn’t the others was the key.

    #605 by James — August 2, 2011 @ 1:31 pm

  606. Hey folks, I cleared it in the third attempt. Scored 490. But hey, I bet no one is celebrating as much as i’m doin! :)

    #607 by Raj — August 2, 2011 @ 2:25 pm

  608. Does anyone know what percentage on average fail and what percentage pass? And what does a score of, say 520 mean relative to others that took the exam? Does it matter to potential employers?

    #610 by Jay — August 2, 2011 @ 3:47 pm

  611. Hi Friends,
    Congrats to all. Passed with a score of 479. Have no clue as to what that means. But it says PASSED and that is all that matters. Thank God!
    For the benefit of others just used the ISACA material, read through the Manual once roughly and attempted the 1,000 question database around thrice.
    All the best to everyone.

    #611 by KK — August 2, 2011 @ 3:50 pm

    Only did the 2011 questions on the database once, 1 day before the exam. <1 yr IT Audit experience, but with 10 yrs of IT related exp. Think that contributed to the knowledge.

  624. @Adeel,

    You are left with not more than one and half month.CISA is an exam which cannot be passed on luck.If you think you are not confident enough then I would recommend you to deffer for June 2012.You will have ample time to prepare and yes you ll have to put more effort.Try completing the manual “atleast” twice and practice on 1000 questions.Good Luck!

  626. Words of hope

    I passed the CISA last year and was endorsed. At that moment I was “unenjoyed”. I was seeing some decent returns on my resume and I got a position doing somewhat security work for a large bank. Well a wise man told me update your resume every six months. Only this time I highlighted my audit and IT controls experience.

    Well the bank was having major problems with Euro bonds and cut my position just before Veterans Day. So I posted my resume on all the job boards and thought Thanksgiving is coming and I won’t see any activity until the New Year.

    I was shocked at the returns I am seeing. The week of Thanksgiving I have been on four interviews and have two set up for next week. The best thing I have heard is. I was talking to a headhunter and we talked about salary. I thought take my last consulting gig and ask for that full time. They said NO, with your resume you should be asking for 20 to 30K more.

    #626 by Bigboy — November 25, 2011 @ 4:52 am

    I am not going to sugar coat it is a hard test but people do pass it.

    I had the mindset if I go down I go down swinging.
    During my test, 30 minutes into it someone got up and left. Now that is a loser.

  630. OK the test is over and you did the best you could granted it is a very high stress test.

    Now go on with your life and wait for the email if you passed/failed.

    I know what I am saying is little comfort to you but the hard part is over.

    #630 by Bigboy — December 10, 2011 @ 9:05 am

  631. Man….I took it in another state after a 14 hour day for almost a week of work…The CISSP seemed to be easier….lol. This was a good test…Pass or fail…Ewwwwhhhh..I hope I passed…on every question…I could narrow it down to 2 choices…If you are going to take this exam get the ISACA study material….I got the Cannon (based on a recommendation), but got the ISACA manual on Wed and had a better understanding of their justification for the subjective questions….Good luck to everyone that took the exam today and I look forward to hearing your results (sorry for the spelling errors)…

    #631 by Shon Blaze — December 10, 2011 @ 6:38 pm

  632. Phew….. at last the tough part of giving the 4 hours long exam is over and done… now wait fot the even tougher duration of 8/10 weeks to go by for the results.. but feel we should let it sink in and forget, rather then wait with hawk eyes for the result… go by with your daily life n the results would pop in around start of february 12.. so fellow cisa colleagues… relax n look forward to enjoy your new year eve… dont worry be happy….

    #632 by pleasantpartner — December 10, 2011 @ 8:13 pm

  633. I took the exam on the 10th and noticed that most of the questions:
    Chapter 3 : many questions about post implementation phase.
    Chapter 4 : about 10 questions or more about backup while few questions about DRP
    Chapter 5 : Most of the questions about datacenter safety, hard disk Destroying, physical access
    But some important topic like IDS and IPS in this exam they not mention at all!

    From my experience on my last exam on June and this exam I noticed that they focusing on one area in each chapter in more details to see how depth your understanding in this topic which indicate that you generally you are having efficient idea about the whole chapter, and it is a clever way to do that.
    Do you agree with me in this point?

    Good luck to all..

  634. From what I remember on my exam is there was almost nothing technical on it. Yes I know it is not a technical test but a lot of the prep books I read on it did cover a lot of technical parts. Now from what I have heard is there is a couple of different test. So the person next to you chances are has a different test.

    #634 by Bigboy — December 11, 2011 @ 3:17 pm

  635. Hello Biplab …

    i chose the same answers as you did for the questions …

    This is from a datacenter design guide …
    Because of low humidity levels, static electricity was a constant problem.. and ..
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_center#Environmental_control

    and for the sensors …. of the given choices only Water was the the appropriate choice .. (Flooding)

    #635 by Karthik — December 12, 2011 @ 9:04 am

  636. I did this exams on 10th december, to me it tested a lot of wisdom. very few technical details. To prepare for Cisa exams is a real challenge.

    #636 by Settim — December 14, 2011 @ 1:40 am

  637. Settim yes it is. To me I couldnt study enough. I think I read 4 books on the CISA. Some were very good as in some were terrible. When I was talking to someone just before the exam started I saw someone who was carrying one of the worst books. I said to the person next to me, if that is the only book he has read for this test, he is going to flunk. At the end of the test and we were decompressing outside someone said one person got up after 30 minutes and left. I think it was that guy. Actually I had concentrated so hard during that test it took me 3 days to decompress.

    This test is very hard and not to be taken lightly but people do pass it.

    #637 by Bigboy — December 14, 2011 @ 8:31 am

  638. I took the CISA exam on the 10th Dec and i must admit it was one of the most gruelling exams i have ever taken.lets just hope for the best.

    #638 by betty — December 15, 2011 @ 6:12 am

  639. The goodness is that pple complain, but end up passing anyway. So we too say ‘hoolah, we are going to pass!!’

    #639 by Eddie — December 15, 2011 @ 7:32 am

  640. I have to admit this exam is the hardest I have ever taken. If you do a search on tough exams, CISA is listed near the top. I have heard of people that got high scores on this exam but they are very few and they did auditing for years before they took this exam.

    This exam is NOT to be taken lightly.

    After passing and being endorsed, I put CISA with my number at the top of my resume. I get some people who say oh gee that is nice but I get a lot more companies saying whoa you passed that exam. My response is not only did I pass but fully endorsed.

    Going over all the auditors book I realized I had pretty much did auditing and risk assessment/management in my past. At the time I didn’t realize what I was doing. So I have highlighted them on my resume even if they were a small part of my past jobs.

    #640 by Bigboy — December 15, 2011 @ 8:05 am

  641. Exam this time wasn’t easy especially of you are related to IT more than audit. As in the CISA manual they state that should be 68 questions from chapter 5 and 46 from CH2, I don’t think this is what happened with the exam this time.
    Anyway, we have to wait till 28th of January to see our result..

    Good Luck all,,,

    #641 by Tarq — December 24, 2011 @ 4:21 pm

  642. When you step into the hall to take the exam you almost expect a winged demon with horns on its head say welcome to the house of pain. Please take you seat for my torture. I understand you will agonize over each answer but remember you have only 72 seconds per question.

    #642 by Bigboy — December 24, 2011 @ 7:38 pm

  643. I have given the dec 2011 exam…ya it was not that easy but i have attempted all 200 questions..some were tricky…i had to read the questions twice or even trice..there are consecutive same right answares many times like b,b,b….a,a,a…c,c,c….god knows…!!

    waiting for the result..!!

    #643 by biswarup — December 26, 2011 @ 5:52 am

  644. m planning to write cisa by june buh m getting really scared by d infrmatn m gettng here….

    #644 by temmy — December 29, 2011 @ 6:50 am

  645. My friend temmy,
    This is my second attempt, and I feel good about it this time. First time in June, I only manage to study just for two weeks and I didn’t look to chapter 3 at all, so I know why I failed but this time I prepared well and I think I will pass. However,if I did not pass, I will register for June and do it again, so don’t just read what is written here. Give it enough time and prepare well and you will have a high chance to pass..

    Good luck

    #645 by Tarq — December 29, 2011 @ 8:52 pm

  646. I took the exam on 10th Dec and I’m not sure really on how I did , regardless … If i’m doing anything I’ll be doing CISM next , even if I pass/fail CISA >.>;

    didnt feel the exam was hard… and thats worries me…I normally fail in this case (same thing happened when I took CISSP last year), anyway GL to everyone! half way mark and 4 more weeks of pain remain! (I’m waiting also for CISSP 17th Dec result so .. double pain I guess XD!)

    #646 by Falasi — January 7, 2012 @ 9:46 am

  647. me too, i dont feel the exam wwas hard or easy. i really dont know what was my performance. Now im just waiting for the result. by the way, my advise who will take the exam for june. Study the CRM and Practice questions, these are the key. Practice questions will surely help but CRM still the BEST eventhough its hard to UNDERSTAND. Good Luck to all of us :)

    #647 by BUR — January 7, 2012 @ 8:50 pm

  648. I took the exam on Dec 10, 2011 and just waiting for the results. Can’t say too hard or easy and that worries me. Coming from technical back ground , I realized solid experience in IT audit is very key to pass this exam. Anyway GOOD LUCK to everyone out there awaiting for test results and who will be taking in the near future.

    #648 by #ITaudit80 — January 10, 2012 @ 9:59 am

    That what we can do right now..

  654. third time around… hope this time I would get that elusive “PASSED” email from ISACA for my CISA Exam.. as I always believe… HOPE FOR THE BEST TO HAPPEN.. even if I dont clear, I have gained pretty good knowledge on security…. rest whatever is to happen wud be known in 3 weeks time.. all the best to all the cisa examinees.. God Bless All..

    #654 by pleasantpartner — January 14, 2012 @ 1:51 am

    #661 by pleasantpartner — January 27, 2012 @ 1:19 am

  662. If it has to be declared….it needs to be today before 17:00 else Monday….considering last year it was on 28th Jan’11. For June exams….results were declared on August 3rd … fingers crossed.

    #662 by Anagha — January 27, 2012 @ 8:42 am

  663. Any news…It’s January the 28th !!! 10am in the morning.
    Every minute every second is beating my heartbeat…Any mail notification in the mailbox is triggering the panic button…

    #663 by biplab — January 27, 2012 @ 9:08 pm

  664. man…. to know that I’ll have to face this again next exam (planning CISM after CISA)… idk…. I can see ISACA ppl holding our results and watching these post and laughing “One more day! ha ha ha!” >.>;

    #664 by Falasi — January 28, 2012 @ 7:21 am

  665. If you gave ISACA your email you will get the notice before you get your letter.

    I was considering on going for my CISM. Now I searched nation wide on indeed for jobs that wanted CISM or CISSP.

    CISM 2094 jobs
    CISSP 7801 jobs

  676. I friend of mine just received a mail from ISACA stating it will take some time for the results to be declared around 8-10 days more. I don’t understand the complexity of such disclosure.

    #676 by Bigmama — January 30, 2012 @ 11:35 pm

  677. I have a feeling we’d be getting the results today itself, lets keep the fingers crossed. And people do not take stress you’d be scored on how you performed and everyone gave their best so be positive and cheers !!!!

    Are you sure? I am getting very very tensed and the panic pain is ringing in my brain all the time.

    #680 by biplab — January 31, 2012 @ 6:52 am

  681. Guys ,

    There is no reason to be tense about this … we all know how we did .. and nothing is going to change by getting into a panic and spoiling your health .. just relax .. and what is to happen will happen ..if you did well you will pass.

    #681 by Karthik — January 31, 2012 @ 6:54 am

  682. today or friday…

    #682 by mucrubab — January 31, 2012 @ 6:59 am

    #684 by Lyoto Machida — January 31, 2012 @ 7:40 am

  685. Friends, I think all this panic and tension creation is all self created and needs to be contained by oneself only. One needs to be patient enough to handle the situation knowing that the CISA Exam results are always a waiting game and needs to be handled with a cool head on your shoulders. No offense to anyone my friends. Just that we need to understand that its only a matter of very little time remaining to know our results. All the Best to all of you my friends for the result… GOD BLESS….

    #685 by pleasantpartner — January 31, 2012 @ 7:49 am

  686. and, CISA goes to…….

    #686 by mucrubab — January 31, 2012 @ 8:40 am

  687. Our friends who suggested that we shouldn’t panic, we tried to do that but for me when I wrote here and find other people waiting with me and other saying we shouldn’t do that. All of these opinions are helping me to be more relax more than if I just stay silent which is really killing me, so please tolerate with us because for me, this piece of carton means a lot for my career and my financial position.

    regards,,,

    #687 by Tarq — January 31, 2012 @ 9:25 am

  695. I know of the biggest problems is the machines used to check the answers. Tech wise they are antiques and when they break down it takes forever to get parts. Also if too many people get a question wrong they review it and will accept two answers as correct.

  712. If you look back at the earlier posts you will see someone made multiple posts they got their results. Well the results had not come out yet and this was a sick joke on someone’s part.

    If you start seeing someone post they gotten their results and you have not, call ISACA to see if the results have come out.

    #712 by Bigboy — February 2, 2012 @ 6:48 am

  713. Only Chris announced that he got his result for this exam, no body else, so Chris please confirm that to be able to know at least we will get our result today or tomorrow, because I phoned ISACA and they told me it will be announced early next week, and small chance late on Friday.

    #713 by Tarq@gmail.com — February 2, 2012 @ 8:28 am

  714. For the first time in a month, I cannot load the ISACA login page with my credentials – I suspect they are updating the exam status message.

    #715 by biplab — February 2, 2012 @ 10:19 pm

  716. hi my friend, there is nothing like anyone been a “member” or “non-member” to appear for the exam. all are equal as far as the exam is concerned and their is no thing like member gets the results first and non-member gets it later. so relax and have a cool head on the shoulders and also try not think of any weird things. take control of the thoughts. God Bless. The results will be coming soon enough.

    #723 by Amine — February 3, 2012 @ 11:34 am

  724. I understand why it takes time to calculate our scores, but I can’t understand why they cannot set a solid deadline to release them. If on the day of the exam they would start out by saying, “Scores will be released Monday, February 6, 2012”, at least we would know to stop expecting it any earlier.

    #724 by thisissara — February 3, 2012 @ 1:13 pm

  725. I called them just now. They are releasing TODAY!

    #725 by thisissara — February 3, 2012 @ 1:21 pm

  729. Finally! *Passed:599* I used a third party study guide. Apparently purchasing the CISA study material/books/questions is not necessary. However, I do have experience as a regulatory auditor with emphasis in IT. Good luck everyone!

    #745 by malawi_baby — February 3, 2012 @ 8:47 pm

  746. I had gotten my notice that I passed with the score of 454. Talk about just squeaking by. For a while I wondered how good of a auditor I would be? Then someone told me what do they call someone who passes last in medical school, doctor.

    For all those who did not pass. You are not a failure. There were parts on the test you were not familiar with. You will be given a notice of where your weakness is. Now I know in the test book you can write in it. So when I read the answers I cross out the ones I knew were wrong. Also in the question I under lined the operative verb and thought about the correct answer.

    #746 by Bigboy — February 3, 2012 @ 8:55 pm

  747. I failed this time..
    Got 363 only…was my first time..

  755. For those that did not make it. Please do not give up!!!! Giving up is the actual failure. Try try again. My only advice is that you to read the latest CRM thoroughly and do practice questions by ISACA.

    #755 by nevergiveup — February 6, 2012 @ 7:27 am

  756. i did not pass. got 398. am very disappointed as a put my all into it.Itsreally depressing. anyone out there like me? would also appreciate if someone can help out with the CRM 2012.

  757. thank God i passed CISA exam on my first attempt.

    for those who didn’t make it, i agree with comment #755. don’t give up!

    my advice, focus on ISACA review materials (review manual + practice questions).
    create a study plan and stick to it but rest once in a while.
    google the terms you’re not familiar with. don’t stop until you understand the concept but don’t get too technical though.

    when going through the CISA manual, keep in mind the risks and the controls in each situation. there are too many of them, know which control is best in preventing or detecting the risks.

    most of all, pray..

    best of luck! :-)

  762. Hello fellow cisa candidates,

    I have done the exam last Saturday, it was tough but hope I did well. All of you who took the exam in June 9, “Best of luck guys”

    and to all who are planning to sit for the exam, prepare as much as you can, research as much as you can, the review manual is good but not enough, you need to do your own reseach, study, and for sure stay updated to all new technological trends.

    Good luck !

  772. I finally passed on my second attempt albeit narrowly with 466. I had made my mind not to do it for the third time but to instead focus on other areas such as CGEIT.for those who didn’t make it try it again though. this time begin reading the CRM early and thoroughly and make sure you understand and memorize the CISA cram sheet.Good luck. For those who made it congrats.

    #772 by betty — August 3, 2012 @ 12:31 am

    Other books wont help…

    Good luck to all those taking the exam.

    #790 by Halai — December 3, 2012 @ 6:47 am

  791. Well, if your doing any ISACA certifications or any other related to security, you need to purchase your own material. The book itself states u cannot..

    All the best…start collecting now…$$$

    #791 by Saturnson — December 4, 2012 @ 4:18 am

  792. I am sitting for the exam this saturday (Dec 8). I have been studying for 3 months! The time is ticking and anxiety is ticking as well!!

    I am going to watch a “Rocky” film before and go in with the mind of an Auditor and the Rocky theme in my head.

    #792 by ralph — December 4, 2012 @ 10:58 am

  793. Good luck to everyone sitting for the exam on Saturday. I am as well. Sometimes I feel like I Don’t know anything lol …
    Read the review manual, done previous exams that I collected, watch CBT Nugget video series on CISA. I hope this been enough since September.

    anxiety building up. I like ralph’s idea though, relax the last day and watch a good movie … then go to sleep with the mind of an auditor … a CISA.

    Any tips from previous exam takers would be great. Good luck again everyone.

    #793 by Wael — December 5, 2012 @ 8:00 pm

  796. I am not the smartest guy in the room but I am a pretty good test-taker and I passed the CISA exam on the first try last December. Here is a bit of last minute advice: If an answer contains the words “always” or “never” it can usually be eliminated from consideration so read carefully. Good luck tomorrow.

  801. You are right Eli,the exam was a tough one,tricky questions throughout.At a point i got tired of the tricky questions,i also felt my answers were wrong.None of the questions in the Practice CD was there.I did my best.Good luck everyone.

    #801 by Rowlane — December 8, 2012 @ 1:19 pm

  802. I feel the same way Eli and Rowlane … it felt confusing and tricky. I feel like I didn’t answer a single question right lol. Some of the questions were similar to those on the CD and previous exams, but the wordings were different which made the question harder.

    Maybe its just us thinking that way. Best of luck guys .. hope we all passed it. We’ll share our joy here when we get our results lol.

    #802 by Wael — December 8, 2012 @ 3:57 pm

  803. Oh ya the test is a bear. I had concentrated so hard on the test that it took me 3 days to unwind. Someone afterwards told me that 30 minutes into the exam the guy next to him got up and left. Now comes the hard part of waiting for your results.

    #803 by Ed — December 8, 2012 @ 4:44 pm

  804. Finished the CISA earlier today and I still have a headache! I felt confident going into the exam but deflated after it was all over. I pray I pass by divine intervention. I studied the book and 1100 practice questions but not sure it was enough.

    don’t give up.. just take it again.. even if you failed the exam twice, your life doesn’t stop there.. just move forward..

    just accept it.. just be happy to yourself and be proud that you tried your best..

    don’t give up! wishing you the best on your next exam..

  831. failing CISA doesn’t mean they are not worth it or they don’t have knowledge .. take the amount of knowledge you have gained while preparing for CISA.ISACA just certifies you ! goodluck with your next attempt !

  833. Hi,

    congrats to those who passed the Cisa december exam!

    personally, i used the official material to prepare for the exam. I read the review manual once, then used the Questions database 2012, then read the review manual again. i also dis the questions of 2010 and 2009. The review manual is very important, read it well!

  834. Eli, would it be possible for me to contact you regarding CISA if you dont mind.

  835. 8 weeks to learn I passed the CGEIT; another 2 weeks and my application is under review.

    Isaca’s miserable customer response time would not be tolerated in ANY other industry. Their lame excuse for wanting to release results at the same time is white wash. This is a fiscal strategy by an org. that doesn’t want to invest in new technology.
