    I'm taking the exam on Saturday as well. I have the other C certs from ISACA and I found that the best resource for me was the job practice areas for each: CISM Job Practice Areas

    Review each area and make sure that you can describe them to yourself. If you're unsure as to how to describe an area (in ISACA terms), focus your efforts there.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the reply and i also feel that one should know the Job practice area which are referenced as task and knowledge statements in RM. But maximum votes on this forum is for the QA database as a good resource.
    What is your view?

    I've never used the QA database, but it certainly seems to be a popular study resource.

    I'm concerned that I'll learn the questions and won't learn the material. As the QA database doesn't (appear) to have the same questions as the actual test, I think it may not be a good fit for me. Everybody is different though and if you can use it to identify your strengths and weaknesses, go for it.

    Best of luck!

    Hi Dustervoice

    I am averaging 74% in DB so far. Reading the explanation for the questions which I am getting wrong.

    Lots of security certifications, yet the more I learn, the further I have to go...

    2 days before? Dumping isn't going to help a lot at this point. Relax, get some good rest over the next two days, and bust it out.

    I am not advocating "dumping" im saying read questions to sharpen your understanding of the tone of Isaca questions. Not memorizing questions that obviously wont be on the test.

    All the study is done, maybe a last review - now all remains is to take the test you've been preparing for for at least 3.5 months (some much longer...)

    Good luck everyone - see y'all on the other side
