    Post CISA Exam Prep

    I am seriously consider taking the CISA exam and I don't know where to start from for studying for the exam. I have a BSc in IS, but don't have any work experience at at all and i graduated in 2011.

    I was wonder if any of you guys can recommend review materials and pointers for studying and passing the exam.

    Thanks.

    Certified Information Systems Auditor - IT Certification - CISA | ISACA


    You might want to start working on getting experience first. Have you looked at other certifications that dont' require experience for full certification?
    Booya!!

    You don't need work experience to pass the exam. So don't worry about it. Some people don't study and pass the exam based on work experience. I'm a graduate with no experience in auditing and passed the exam. All you really need is to study and know well the concepts from the official manual. Practice the database questions until you understand the ISACA logic and thinking. That's all it takes.
