  1. Is the content of this Certified Information Systems Auditor Study Guide  different from classes or online courses? How?
    Similar in many ways. This book is an excellent source for your study. The scope of performing the actual audit procedures is dramatically larger than the scope of ISACA's exam for CISA certification. Content in CISA: Certified Information Systems Auditor Study Guide, 4th Edition is designed to help readers prepare and often pass on their own. Your individual performance depends on your starting level of technical understanding in both IT and financial audit. For successful study the book includes where to get free downloads of the official government auditing standards to provide the very best companion references to help you pass the first time.
  2. Is this the only book I need to pass the CISA exam?
    People learn in different ways, people also have different experiences in life, in technology and auditing. If you are already fluent in setup and administration tasks of computers, networks and the concepts of cyber security, then your focus is learning the auditing concepts and how to apply those objectives to IT. If you are from a financial background you should focus is learning how to apply auditing to the IT environment. The CISA exam is about terminology & theory.
  3. Is the content of this book able to fulfill the learning needs of financial professionals? How?
    Yes, the CISA: Certified Information Systems Auditor Study Guide, 4th Edition provides an excellent introduction on how to apply financial audit objectives to technical computing for a meaningful IT audit. If you are familiar with the IT hardware and understand basic concepts of how computers work, how software programs work and how networks work, you can expect to pass the CISA after a few weeks of independent study. If you get stuck, simply supplement your CISA study with videos or books by searching on "how __ works".
  4. Is any kind of exam-pass guarantee available for the book?
    Frankly no, the CISA: Certified Information Systems Auditor Study Guide, 4th Edition does not provide an exam-pass guarantee. Neither does passing the CISA exam provide any guarantee you will have a successful job in auditing. Just like everything else in life you need to put in concentrated effort to be successful. Depending on your starting level and available time this may be few weeks to a couple months of evening study. Read more often than you practice questions. Stay focused and don't go overboard.
  5. Does author David Cannon and contributors Brian O'Hara and Allen Keele provide support for questions?
    They try to if time permits. The book is a very cost-effective resource, but the price of the book unfortunately does not sustain personal support. You are encouraged to connect with them to ask questions provided you are respectful of their time. Each of these working practitioners runs separate business with ongoing commitments to those clients.
  6. Will this book benefit me if I decide to take a training course?
    Yes absolutely, this book is an excellent source to begin your self study. There is no need to take any Linux/Unix or MCSE server courses, Cisco router courses or CISSP training before passing your CISA. Success is about understanding nomenclature, theory and the concepts of auditing applied to technology.
  7. Will I learn enough to perform audits after studying for the CISA examination?
    No, for an important career saving reason. The CISA is your first official step to becoming qualified to be a junior member of the audit team.Content within the CISA body of knowledge covers very basic technology and audit concepts. The entire CISA exam is a starting foundation of common details you need for general high-level direction plus how to communicate with your team. ISACA and other review courses don't teach the actual audit procedures, and no audit tools.
  8. What is the next step to be an auditor, regardless of taking or not taking the CISA examination?
    Learn the IT audit procedures which are not part of the CISA examination. In addition Audit Standard ISO-27006 and ISO-19011 require all auditors to have a minimum of 3 days of audit specific training, functional training on the items being auditing and participate in 3 successful audits as junior team member before performing audit tasks as a regular team member. These ISO standards govern auditing in all the developed countries. Without a doubt, this CISA: Certified Information Systems Auditor Study Guide, 4th Edition is the right book to start your success.
  9. What is the real secret to successfully passing the first time?
    Follow the learning path provided in this book. Complete each chapter in order. Don't skip anything because you might think you already know it. Auditing is about inspection. All decisions are based on collecting the best evidence, performing an involved series of technical tests and letting individual test results tell the story. Auditing is dramatically more than running scanning software. It's best to start reading this book all the way through before reading anything else. Once the series of concepts is properly installed in your brain you can venture out to other content. Focusing on drilling practice questions is how the majority end up failing their CISA exam. Above all have some faith in yourself. You can do this.
