    I would suggest you to buy on the ISACA website. If you are a ISACA member, you do get a discount. All the best.

    Default Passed

    I passed the CISA on my first attempt!

    Now if anyone can help me find a JR IT Audit position within the GTA (Toronto, ON) I can start building my requirements!

    Study Tips:
    -I registered and attended the Official CISA Exam Prep Course (every Saturday morning) It was fairly expensive and some instructors were better than others. But all in all I did pass...

    -Do ALL the sample questions from the CD. MEMORIZE the answer and reasons as to why its not the others options.

    Default CISA Certification Timeline and Pass Rate Statistics

    1. How long does it normally take for ISACA to certify from the time CISA certification application gets submitted? I submitted the application on the 3rd of August 2011 by fax.

    2. Is there any way to know what the overall pass rate for CISA June 2011 exam is? Are there statistics on past CISA exam pass rates?

    1. I understand it can take up to 8 weeks. I suspect their crack team of geriatric snails shift from scoring exams to processing endorsement applications. Be prepared to wait.

    2. The CISA historically has a pass rate of 50% from published results. It has been improving, but it is by no means an easy exam.

    I sent in my application last week on Wednesday by fax. I called to verify that it was received and for some reason a few pages were missing. I then resent via email. On Friday I got back an email saying they are reviewing the application and the portal says the application is complete. I hope it won't take 8 weeks to get the certification.

    Please give me any advice you can about the exam
    First question...how much experience do you have in IS auditing? The more the better and the easier it is to pass and the easier it is to make recommendations on what to study.

    Received my notice from ISACA yesterday. I am officially a CISM

    Documents submitted August 19th
    Endorsement received August 24th

    6 day turn-around! That was even faster than (ISC)2.

    Did you guys get an email or did you check the ISACA site to find out they had completed your endorsement package. I emailed mine in on Saturday. we will see how long it takes.

    I got an email on 9/2 that they had received my application package, but as of right now they haven't bothered to move it from the 'unreviewed' pile.

    It befuddles me as to why their exam scoring, and certification process, are so lengthy.

    I checked my status as of today and it says unreviewed, I suspect I will be waiting the entire 8 weeks. I noticed the people that have a CISA/CISSP cert seem to get there notification back faster than those of us without.

    You could very wel be correct, as for either the CISA or CISSP, you must have documented work experience to qualify for either designation. The CISM gives a 2 year waiver if you have the CISSP, which also does not hurt matters (not that it was needed, but it never hurts).

    I checked mine today, it says 'Complete-Under Review'. I received an email about receiving the application on Aug 10th 2011. Not sure why the delay is. Any ideas?? anybody on the same boat?

    I got an email from ISACA today they need more information about my years of security specific work experience. I used my time in the Military, I sent them everything they should have needed. I guess they need my Discharge paperwork from the military to prove that I was really in the military.

    Angry CISA exam/prep regret

    I feel like I have made the biggest mistake starting the CISA course. I purchased the manual, and then part way through realised there are an additional 330 pages "IT Standards, Guidelines, and Tools and Techniques for Audit and Assurance and Control Professionals", which are really just 330 pages of lists after lists, which I will never be able to memorise. So I have blown my money really. Big mistake, If I knew I would never have wasted my time and money. I feel like I have been conned.

    If anyone can assist I would be grateful.
