RE: Tips for CISA

Hi there,

As you don't have audit experience,
I would suggest that you attend a CISA preparation course
as early as possible! This will guide you on filling your gaps.

For me getting the "audit mindset"
is clearly more important than having the IT technical skills.

If you had an audit experience, I would have say,
like Cathie, "ok read the CISA review book and fix your audit knowledge".

I truly believe that alone and without an audit experience
it will be very difficult for you to make it, sorry.

Believe me take that course.

Hope this helps.

Boubacar, Cisa

I would also recommend reading all of the ISACA audit
guidelines and procedures, available on the ISACA website,
no log on

hey new guy

Basic tips:
- Read the Cisa Review Manual 2008;
- Train using the CISA question database;

Simple formula and it worked for me.

Good luck!
