A month is fine. I only did the test database and felt ready when I scored at least 80% in each domain. Don’t just memorize the answers though. The test is fairly easy, especially compared to the CISSP

Like the test dump database? 3 hrs a day is doable in a month.

I studied for about a month and then crammed the week before the exam 😁 I used the book and the database from ISACA. Passed it. Now officially a CISA! 😊 Good luck! 🍀

One month is fine. I Used the Official ISACA Online question DB (not memorizing but understanding what the question was looking for) and read the official study guide one time through and felt prepared for and passed the exam.

If my goal is product mgmt/analytics, is strategy consulting the wrong way to go? New grad at a T2, I picked up some classes and realized how much I liked working with data.

Pre-COVID, consulting felt like the career accelerator, but I had an offer as a BA at a FS company that I'm regretting not taking now. Worried I lost my chance to reapply in the future since exp/skill reqs tend to be higher at senior BA roles.
