    Default CISA Sep 2013

    Hi all,

    I have completed CISA Exam this morning.
    I spent less than 3 hours.

    The pattern of those questions is similar to the Questions & Answers DB by ISACA, thought I did not have time to do them all.
    I only spent about 6 hours yesterday to do about 250 questions.

    Besides, I feel CISA is easier than CISSP.

    Now i am waiting for the result....

    Any one sit the same exam with me today?

    Default CISA Sep 2013

    Hi,

    i did the CISA test today, too.

    Well, i also did not practice too much (about 15 hours, with the Practice QA DB test prep software from ISACA). I think i saw about 500 questions of the sotware.
    But I have a M.Sc. Degree in IT-Security and I'm working as an Internal (IT) Auditor for 5 years.

    In my opinion, the question were far away from the software. At least, i cant remember to have seen one of those from the cisa exam in the test prep software.

    Questions were "ok", the problem is, there were - imho - a plenty of questions where you simply had to guess between 2 possibilities which seemed equal to fit as a correct answer.

    I hope i passed .... we will see .... 5 weeks till scores are mailed.

    Good luck to others

    Totally agreed.
    For me, about 20 questions can be guessed (only an answer is reasonable), and i found some questions were asking same things or ideas. e.g. feasibility test, etc.

    Good luck to all.

    Hi, I took it in Hong Kong, there were about 120 people.

    Some were students, and many were working.
    I saw at least two from Mainland China.

    will see....

    AndiSmith : I think the two set papers are only in different order. only the score from same set of questions would have fair scoring to determine pass or fail. (also world-wide for one version)

    aaa...it is great to have such a forum to discuss about the exam!! I took the CISA exam last Saturday too. Waiting for the results...pray pray... The database questions actually are somewhat tricky. I just cross my finger to pray that I have good luck in guessing some of the questions in the exam...and some questions are pretty detail.

    Good luck to everyone!!

    I took the exam in Los Angeles on September 7th. I believe they said there was about 85 people there, split into two conference rooms at an upscale hotel. I thought it was actually easier than the practice questions database because the questions were way more straight forward. Or at least they tricked me into seeming easier and I failed anyways. I'm studying for CISSP in the meantime while waiting for the results. I realized that when the first 50 questions were taking an hour that I would be there the entire exam. I finished about 10 minutes before the deadline.

    I took the exam on Sep 7th in Chennai, India. I prepared with the CRM and the Q&A Practice DB. I felt the questions in the practice DB was tricky. However, the questions in the exam seemed more straight forward compared to the practice DB. I'm awaiting the results, though not sure what to expect, as people often mentioned they thought they did well but the answers were incorrect. Keeping fingers crossed. Will the email results be automatic or should I set the preference somewhere in ISACA website or somewhere else to receive the results in email?

    It depends on how you told them to notify you when you signed up. I received an email claiming the results may be posted in as little as five weeks from the exam through email.

    I'm hoping we get the results around next Saturday. I think they may process this quicker because they emailed stating it could be just five weeks to see the results.

    I just passed the SSCP exam on Saturday while waiting. Lots of crossover content.
