I have 18 days to study for CIA EXAM Part 1.

I can dedicate 5-6 hours a day. Is that doable?

Hell yeah you can, part 1 is easy. Just actually study for it lol


you won’t know if you don’t try right? go for it, get in the best, most focused study sessions you can and hope for the best!

Just take as many practice questions as can, and understand for the ones you get wrong why and freshen up in those areas

I took CIA when I had about 10 years of experience (total years work, not all focused in audit). I took a few practice tests and spent a few hours familiarizing myself with the material. I took all parts in one sitting. I found it super easy. If you took Audit in college and have been working in internal audit for a few years and study a little, you should be fine.

That could be.


Read Gleim and do the practice questions. You'll be fine.

Easily doable. Gave it last year with pretty much the same prep

OP, did you pass the part 1 exam?

My boyfriend and I make 200K combined and live in NJ. We have $1000 in monthly car payments combined. That’s all we owe. Our credit scores are in the 800s. We have 50K to put down on a home. We have done the math and I know we can afford much more but he doesn’t want to buy more than a 400K home. I’m almost positive we can afford 500K and be more than ok. But then he starts to talk about how much kids cost and how we will be house poor and we won’t be able to afford kids. 🤔 Am I insane??

I am interviewing for a new IT Manager position. I started putting out soft feelers and then hit the hunt harder. The problem: I have one offer and need to give an answer by next Wednesday. I have two other opportunities that are in final steps but probably won’t have offers by next Wednesday. Both of the other offers will be higher pay but clearly are uncertain for offers. Do I accept the offer I have, which is a good one or wait for the other two to finalize and possibly miss out altogether?

I do like the risk realm, although I would hope to do something more technical in nature and not so much check box. Thanks ahead of time!
