Jeff Aguilar recently passed ISACA’s CRISC exam and added that distinction to his CISM certification. We asked him to provide his perspective on the exam-taking process.
Exam Preparation: I went with the standard exam-prep strategy. I obtained ISACA’s official review manual and practice-exam questions. As I studied, I realized that experience alone would not be enough to successfully pass this exam. I also leveraged ISACA’s LinkedIn CRISC group, which was helpful in discussing various questions and exam subjects. I ended up dedicating about 15 hours a week to my preparation.
