    Default CISM Exam Experience

    Guys, couple of questions about the exam experience.

    When you end the exam, do you get the results on-screen or do you have to get a print out from reception?
    If you answer a question can you also mark it for review?
    Is the exam interface pretty similar to the QA db?
    I know its difficult to work out, but percentage wise, what roughly do you think the pass mark is? I know the scaled score pass is 450 out of 800 (56%) but I'm just trying to gauge roughly how many of the 150 questions you need to answer correctly!

    - No printout; just the preliminary pass on screen. Email confirmation received on a later date reporting that I officially passed.
    - Yes you may mark questions for review.
    - The interfaces are not identical, but I don't see how or why that matters.
    - Not sure of the actual %, but if you know your stuff then I don't see why that should matter.

    Worthless attempt. Questions are weighted and there are research questions that do not count towards the final score. Best advice I can give you is to just get this thought out of your mind.

    Good advice...thank you.

    Need to just relax a bit and focus on drilling down on my weaker areas.
