Not technical enough. I was able to pass it after studying around 8 hours a week for 7 weeks right after I graduated

^ yes applying for it when i get yoe

Not that technical in my opinion

That’s a good point tysm! How long did you study for the exam?

All ISACA exams are far easier than you think...

Yes and no... certain domains are closer than others... keep in mind they say no 2 exams are exactly alike

Did any of you use the textbook? Or just do the questions bank?

EY 1 you should do some research on the CISA exam ☺️ all the info is on the ISACA site, you obviously have to pay for the study material

Interested to hear how people learn project management. I have done PRINCE2 exam and read PMP materials, but I find these are too textbook theory based. Real life projects seem to be very different and a lot more complicated. I often do not know what needs to be done unless someone tells me. I believe you can learn these things on the job, but I am keen to expedite this with some books or courses. Are there any resources that are particularly helpful?
