    I just found out I failed and was hoping someone could help me figure out the best way to study for December. This year I basically took the Isaca practice database questions and studied them everynight for about a month. I made sure I went over questions missed and know I answered 100% of the questions. I was feeling confident based on that but the test was nothing close to the database. Some people have recommended boot camps. I am pretty new to the auditing world but need this cert to stay in my job. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Fr4ntav0

    Congratulations! You better update your profile with correct email address as ISACA would send any news via email.

    Does anybody apply CISA certification right after? I am puzzled if the verifier must be still with the employer that I worked for as my former boss had changed to work for another company.

    Yes Sirreee,
    Passed CISA. If you haven't received your email yet, like myself, login to isaca > myISACA. Click on the myCertifications tab. You'll see the result of your exam. I have a question though. How does a score of 450 translate to in % ? and 550 ? and 650 ? and 750 ?

    800 is the total mark. Then, I assume 450 is 450/800 = 56%. However, as mentioned from ISACA site, the score for every question is different.

    I am sorry to here that but there are very few exam which can be cleared by Q&As and CISA is certainly not one of those.. I highly recommend review manual for CISA. Its not an easy thing to read, at least not for me but its great.
    Also, this exam has a very practical approach and I think you need to have some experience to clear it (not necessarily for auditing but Risk assessment, IT Management, Security)
    Do try it again, its worth it and all the best!

    jennyclsa2012: no, your verifier for years previous does not have to be at your current employer..... you can get your former boss to verify for the years you worked under him/her, and then get your current boss to verify the time you have been working together. that's what i did.

    FYI: i submitted my CISM application the day we got our scores, and they just emailed me back to say they received it, today. hopefully now that they are charging $50 to apply, they will move a little more quickly with verifying applications. we'll see. i had my application ready to go just in case i passed, so it could be processed as quickly as possible.

    Hi Elizabeth

    Thanks! My problem is I worked for company A and I can ask my former boss there to be my verifier. However, my former boss already left company A. Then, what company email address/phone number I should fill as he no longer work for company A. Would ISACA send mail to the verifier to confirm? I am puzzled on it as all my former boss already the company that we worked together. Please help! Thanks a lot!

    I would just put down his current information and make a note on the application that he worked for the company when you worked there - out to the side, something short and simple. I think it will be fine.

    REMOVED UNNECESSARY QUOTED REPLY FROM PREVIOUS POST

    This is the only option I have as none of my superiors are working for the same organization any more.

    Would it increase the probability of being audited by ISACA of the application?

    @jennyclsa2012 - you may want to contact ISACA directly. The folks there are very nice and helpful. I don't see why your current manager can't provide the verification. In theory, the current manager hired you with the presumotion that you had X years of experience.

    I used the following:
    - CISA All-in-one Exam Guide 2nd Edition by Peter Gregory
    - CISA Study Guide, by David L. Cannon (this is most easy to read)
    - ISACA questions database

    Also I took the ISACA CISA review course offered by my local chapter, it was quite helpful and the instructors were great!

    I used the Peter Gregory book, the ISACA study guide and the ISACA question database. The ISACA study guide is hard to wade through, but I thought it was the absolute best source of information for this exam.
