Anyone write CISM recently? Been with D for 5 yrs in Cyber practice and I’ve done strat, risk, assessment and implementation. 4 yrs outside exp. How long should I give myself to study before I give my CISM? What’s the best material to follow?

I know for the CISM there are 150 questions. Are any of these “practice” test questions? ISACA typicallly adds some additional questions. How many questions do you need to get correct to pass?
