I Passed!

  • 1.  I Passed!

    I just wanted to take a moment to thank all the participants on this forum for your valuable insight as it was a great help in helping me pass the exam this past Sunday (a little late to post this, sorry). Three months of study paid off!

    Resources Used:
    ISACA CRISC - Review Manual
    ISACA CRISC - QAE Manual
    • What helped me was as I went through the QAE, I would note the page number of where I could find the answer in the Review Manual, to add more context to the answer explanation. 
    Cybrary CRISC Course

    I wanted to reach the point in which I clearly understood why the answer was correct and why the other questions were wrong. It took me a few passes of the Review and QAE manuals (3 x Each) to truly understand the material, but at the end I was scoring 90%+ each time I took the sample exam.

    I hope this is of some encouragement to those of you still preparing for the exam, stick with it and study hard, you will get there!

    Congratulations on successfully passing the exam!

    I watched some of the Cybrary videos on youtube. Do you believe the Cybrary course was instrumental in your passing the course? I have also been looking at the ISACA CRISC course as well.

    I believe CRISC exam candidates who have a CISA certification (I don't) have a leg up on CRISC. I have a CRCM (Certified Regulatory Compliance Manager) certification so the question structure is familiar to me. I have been supporting technology for 5 years in all Domains.

    Hi Heather,

    I would say that the QAE was the most instrumental resource. I would rely primarily on the QAE and the Review manual during your studies and use Cybrary as a supplement.

    I agree, having another ISACA cert prior to sitting for the CRISC would definitely be beneficial, but your 5 years experience  will also be of great value!
