    I see these threads regarding testing dates... is the test only offered in a group setting once every quarter or something?

    ISACA's certification exams are offered twice a year (at June and December). Due to popular demands, CISA and CISM exams are offered three times a year (June, September, and December).

    I'm in the beginning stages of prep for the CISM as I'm about to finish studying for the CEH. I plan on relying on the ISACA question database a lot, after a couple of reads of the review manual. I've read quite a few posts here where people say the question DB is more helpful than the review manual.

    I finally decided to pursue the CISM too... I just spent a small fortune on the official ISACA material; CISM Review Manual 2014, CISM QAE 2014, CISM DB 2014 and the bleeding membership.

    Can the CISM RM only be purchased through ISACA?

    I plan to take CISA again in this december. I failed by 25 point last year, and did not want to go back; but, now my job might require CISA. In fact, it requires more into CRISC, but I do not see lot of materials for CRISC. So, I'll take CRISC in June 2015. You can purchase ISACA materials through Amazon.com.
