Gleim CIA Review was a fantastic partner in assisting me in earning the CIA certification. The personal counselors that Gleim provides gave me insight based on their experience with prior candidates that helped me feel confident in the Gleim method. If the time comes that I need to earn another certification, I'll certainly turn to Gleim and recommend others do the same.
- Andrew Grady, CIA, CFE
Gleim is the most effective way to prepare for the exams. It is straightforward and the explanations are easy to understand. The flexibility to study at own pace and the mobility to do it online helped me the most as my job requires me to travel internationally.
- Ek Chuan Ng, CIA, Singapore
Not only were the Gleim course materials a great aid in helping me to pass sections 1-3, but the Gleim team was also amazing to work with. From the purchase of my materials and throughout studying, the folks at Gleim were supportive and encouraging. They provided great tips for success and followed up with me regularly to help keep me on target. Great materials and a really great group of folks! Could not have asked for a better experience! 5 Stars.
- Jodie Hausel, CIA
I would definitely recommend Gleim for CIA review. Gleim prepared me to pass Parts 1 & 2 on my first try. All of the topics presented in the exams were sufficiently covered by Gleim. The downloadable books were great for travel and easy access when not connected to internet. I was very happy with the Gleim pass guarantee and the counselors were always there to aid in my preparation. I very much appreciate it and I would recommend the system to any future candidate.
- Julia Maldonado, CPA, CIA
After purchasing the Gleim CIA Review, I started studying for Part 1 in mid-February and within four months had passed each part of the exam on the first try. The Gleim materials are comprehensive, well-organized, and easy to navigate. The materials provided multiple ways to review the information, including videos, slideshows, and quizzes, as well as the tools to track my progress. The Study Planner is a great accountability tool and the “Study Session” feature provides immediate feedback to assist the candidate in firmly grasping the concepts presented. I would recommend this system for those who, like me, require more than just a book!
- Angela S., CIA
I used the Gleim Review System for Part 3 of the CIA exam. Part 3 appeared to be the most difficult part due to the amount of content covered. The Gleim Review System included a large amount of practice questions and also provided detailed explanations for each correct and incorrect question answered. I would definitely recommend the Gleim Review System for anyone pursuing CIA certification.
- April Bailey, CIA
I found that the Gleim review system was very helpful for my CIA exam preparation. The materials are well organized and the superb assistance I received during my study was highly valuable. Additionally, it provided me with solid knowledge and stronger self confidence. Gleim will be always my first recommendation for CIA exam preparation. Gleim is my partner in success.
- Musab Alobaidli, Kindom of Bahrain
I relied on the Gleim Review system to pass all three parts of CIA exams within two and half months. I really liked the full variety of contents within the review system. The materials helped me be efficient with my studies. I am currently using Gleim to prepare for my CMA exam too. Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful review system.
- Hong Zhu
The Gleim Review System helped me pass the third part of the CIA exam. Being the most comprehensive exam of the three, I was initially overwhelmed by the amount and variety of material. The set-up of Gleim was unlike any other review system I have used in the past. I liked that I was able to track my progress as I moved along each chapter, from the initial diagnostic and audiovisual presentation of concepts to the practice questions within each chapter. The drill down feature in the Test Prep was helpful for reviewing results for a specific topic in a chapter so I could focus on weaker areas in my final review. There was more than enough practice questions which made me feel prepared as I was able to study the concepts rather than memorize the answers. I highly recommend the Gleim Review System to anyone who is planning to sit for the CIA exam.
- Priscilla, CIA
I think the Gleim review was overall a great tool because of the multitude of tools that can be used depending on where you are at or the type of study sessions you like to have. I think the books were great at addressing what topics were 'must know' compared to those that were 'you should be familiar'. I would definitely tell a friend/colleague to use Gleim as well due to the amount of practice questions included (definitely get the whole package with test questions). Gleim came so well recommended to me that I paid out of pocket to use it versus the company sponsored company which was not up to par with Gleim.
The Gleim program was very easy to use and prepared me well for the CIA tests. After using the program, the actual tests seemed easy. I would definitely use Gleim again and recommend it to anybody looking to pass the tests on the first try.
- Paul Grabarek, CIA
Let me use this opportunity to let you know that the material provided was above and beyond what I could have expected. I am wholeheartedly attributing my success in the exam yesterday to the Gleim material.
- Anthony Hamilton
I chose Gleim because I wanted to use a self-study system, and felt Gleim was the best value and bang for my buck. My manager suggested Gleim when I originally began studying for Part 1. It was also good to see Gleim change over to the new 3 part exam very quickly. All in all, I would suggest using Gleim for the CIA test down the road.
- Tom Burget
I could never have passed the CIA without the Gleim CIA Review System, which I used to pass all three exam parts. The CIA exam is not to be taken lightly. The exam requires a broad understanding of several concepts. The materials provide a necessary learning structure to prepare you to take and pass the exam. The test preparation assists in determining learning needs, and confidence to master these focus areas. Thank you Gleim.
- David Pearl
The Gleim Review System was organized and the study assignments were reasonably paced. The study guides provided a good overview of the topics covered by the exam. This allowed more efficient and focused study time than reviewing books on my own. If I had a friend who inquired about Gleim I would recommend the Gleim review courses, if available for the particular certification in question. The programs work if you follow the instructions
- Kathleen Smith, CIA
Fantastic Review System! So flexible, and every minute spent going through the material in the review system is worth it! Use the Gleim CIA Review System, and follow the instructions! Never give up, and maintain a positive attitude. I did just that and I passed my CIA! The Personal Counselors are really helpful in providing guidance throughout my journey in the review system.
- Pek Yoke Tee
I think the Gleim CIA Review System is the leading and proven studying option for the CIA exams. It is very comprehensive, well executed, and continuously improved upon by the Gleim team. The entire Gleim experience was essential for me to pass all my CIA exams. The materials are well written with sufficient details. From the beginning, I learned what I already knew and what I needed to work on. Having a personal counselor available for support helped to pull the whole experience together. I appreciated the large database of practice questions and the ability to create different tests. The tools to analyze test results such as understanding why answers are correct/incorrect, being able to ask for further guidance from the Gleim accounting experts, and real-time updates to my performance analysis are all impressive features of Gleim. The Gleim system is a highly recommended studying approach for CIA candidates.
- Jennifer Louie, CPA, CA, CIA (Canada)
Thanks to the Gleim CIA package, I was able to pass all my CIA papers in one sitting! The summarized CIA material and tons of online question and answer study sessions were immensely helpful. The Gleim material's ease of use and relevant question bank makes it the go-to resource for CIA prep.
- Omoniyi Fabarebo, CIA, CISA, CISSP, Senior Consultant (Nigeria)
I passed the CIA part 3! I only used the Gleim study materials for all the three parts. I found the materials very helpful, and the questions were prepared in such a way that a thorough understanding of the subject is assured. When I wanted clarification on a couple of questions, I received very prompt and satisfying replies. Keep up the good work! I will come back to Gleim if I decide to take any other course.
- Sankar Prajan (Bangalore, India)
During my preparation, I studied the Gleim materials thoroughly. I would say that the topics are well structured and helpful in understanding the concepts. The ability to review incorrect answers and focus on weaker areas was helpful. I would certainly recommend Gleim when preparing for the CIA exam. In my opinion, Gleim has carefully tailored their materials to accurately represent the exam, and I would like to use Gleim for other courses.
- N. Chandrasekhar, CIA
The Gleim materials were very helpful in my preparations because they were easy to use and indicative of the actual exam's set-up. Gleim's method was easy to comprehend. The materials allowed me to see my weakest areas and were representative of what the exam covered.
- Francesca Musco, CIA
I found the Gleim system to be very comprehensive; it provided a thorough breakdown of all the topics and reinforced learning the concepts instead of memorizing questions and answers. I liked the structure of the system and the ability to track my progression. The materials were extremely beneficial because they explained why answers were correct or not, prepared me for the time limit on the actual exam, and gauged my progress throughout the study process. Gleim is an excellent resource. I have already recommended Gleim to a co-worker who is taking the CIA exam as well.
- Krista Rogozinsky , CIA
The Gleim CIA Review System provided me with a structured, focused exam preparation. I followed the recommended steps and benefited greatly. The Review System provides detailed performance reports for each part of the exam. This allowed me to focus my studies on my weakest areas. Over a 6 month period, I was able to pass each exam on my first try with the Gleim method. I would recommend Gleim's Review System to anyone pursuing the CIA certification.
- Brian Harris CIA
When I first began preparing for the CIA exam, I used a competitor. I had a difficult time understanding what I needed to focus on and what
wasn't as important; I ended up failing on my first attempt. Gleim offered a clearer approach. The Review System was very structured and
focused on the topics that were the most important. Additionally, Gleim allowed improvement on weaker areas. I have already recommended the Review System and would do so again. Three of my colleagues bought Gleim
based off of my experience and recommendation.
- Richard Belohuby, CIA
The Gleim Review System is easy to follow and mimics the style of the actual test. The personal counselors are always available to answer questions [about how to study and the exam process] which provides a sense of comfort. Also, the versatility and accessibility of Gleim was beneficial for studying on my iPad or listening to audios while at the gym.
- Rebecca Mondonedo, CIA
The Gleim Review System was beneficial because of the extensive coverage it provided. It helped me grasp the more difficult points. The material was user friendly and the feedback was useful. Gleim is the best learning experience I have ever had. I would use Gleim again for the Certified Public Accountants exam.
- Sangeeta Halabi, CIA, Qatar
I recently passed the CIA exam utilizing the Gleim Review System. I attribute my success to Gleim! I felt that the system provided me with a structured study plan and guidance throughout the process. My personal counselor was very knowledgeable and responsive. I would definitely recommend the Gleim system to anyone preparing for the CIA.
- Ashley McWilliams, CIA
Gleim thoroughly covered the information that was presented in the exam. Additionally, Gleim's materials allow you to review what questions you answered incorrectly and explains why that answer is wrong. I will recommend Gleim to others who have an interest in obtaining the CIA designation.
- Jian Wang
I tried using two other products to prepare for the CIA exam and failed under both systems. The language was too simplistic and did not prepare me for the actual exam. I switched to Gleim and found it to be far more beneficial. The language of the Gleim materials was comprehensive and
similar to the IIA testing format, which was very helpful. Additionally, Gleim tracks your performance and shows which areas are your weakest. If I choose to pursue the CPA designation, I will use Gleim.
- Khanim Babayeva, CIA
My success in passing the CIA exam on the first attempt was largely due
to the benefits of the Gleim Review System. This system is comprised of
many elements that made learning the material more efficient and
effective. The online aspects of the Review System allowed me to go
through some questions while commuting to and from work, as well as
traveling to other places. This allowed for a better use of time and
further enhanced the knowledge absorption. The Gleim method made
studying for the CIA exam more interesting and rewarding. Not only did I
gain the certification, I also had better insights into the topics that
were previously covered in my own studies. The performance tracking gave
me the confidence I needed for each of the CIA exams. The results told me the milestones I had achieved before going to the practice exam, which in turn, prepared me for the actual exam. Gleim has tons of questions that helped prepare me for the exam. By explaining why answers were correct AND incorrect, I was able to understand the information on a deeper level. In summary, I was able to pass all 3 parts of the CIA exam in approximately 3 months because of the Gleim Review System. I would like to thank the people working at Gleim, especially the sales personnel and the personal counselor, for being very helpful and tactful. I would recommend Gleim to my colleagues and friends.
- Nick Chia, CIA, Malaysia
Gleim helped me feel prepared for all three parts of the CIA exam. I would recommend Gleim to anyone interested in obtaining the CIA certification! This system won't let you down!
- Devin Harmon, CIA
Thank you Gleim! Your method was perfect and made me successful in every part of the new 3-part CIA exam, always in the first try. Again, thank you very much Gleim.
- Marco Melucci, Italy
The Gleim Review System outlined the topics I needed to know to pass each part of the exam on my first attempt, and explained the subject matter in a way that was easy to understand; it avoided unnecessary jargon or technical terms. The exam questions helped me identify and concentrate on my weakest areas. It was also beneficial that there were explanations for both correct and incorrect answers, which helped me understand the reasoning behind each question. This was especially useful when I would guess on a question. The Review System accurately mimicked the exam itself, which was beneficial the day of the actual test. I would recommend Gleim to a friend or colleague, because the system was easy to understand, follow, and use. I will definitely use Gleim if I decide to pursue further designations.
- Christopher Dennen
Gleim helped me by simplifying the studying and review process of my CIA Examination. It thoroughly prepared me for the exam. Even though I have been really busy in my office, Gleim was there all along to keep me on track. I finished everything in three months, who can better prepare you for that? I would recommend Gleim to colleagues or friends by asking: "Do you want to pass the CIA on the first take?" Gleim promised me this, and it indeed delivered.
- Ally Rannie Nicdao, CPA CISA CIA, Philippines
I was so pleased with the Gleim material that I have already recommended it to my friends and co-workers. My favorite part of the Gleim Review
System was the Study Session, which would provide instant feedback on my answers, and explain why I was correct or incorrect. I studied over my lunch hour every day, and passed all three tests on the first try. The entire process took less than one
- Rob Showalter, CIA
I found the Gleim materials and process unbelievable. If I ever take another certification exam, I will definitely use Gleim. The rigor, detail and quality were a terrific way to study. I spend about 3 hours a day commuting, so listening to the information after studying and taking the quizzes was a big help. The software tracking allowed me to zero in on my weak areas in preparation for the exam, which was a great way to maximize the impact of my study time. I completed all 3 CIA tests (passed each the first time).
- Michael M
I would like to thank Dr. Gleim and his team for making the CIA and CPA Review Systems! I purchased preparation materials for both exams and was able to pass all 3 CIA exams and 4 CPA exams on the very first attempt, save for Regulation, which I passed on my second try. Despite the overwhelming nature of the information, the Gleim materials covered each subject thoroughly and really helped me in understanding difficult points. I am pretty sure I will use Gleim materials to maintain my certifications, so thank you very much again!
- Askar Kantarbayev, Internal Audit Manager, Eurasian Group LLP, Astana, Kazakhstan
The Gleim CIA Review was perfect; thanks again for the great exam preparation. I passed all exam sections on the first try by preparing with Gleim.
- Daniel Placa, CIA, United Kingdom
I'm very grateful to Dr. Gleim and his team! It was an amazing journey from doubtfully surveying the Gleim website to arriving at the conclusion that Gleim is really perfect! Gleim's approach starts with confidence and guides you with maximum efficiency through the exams. I would even say you should forget everything you know and strictly follow the System for Success handbook recommendations. Gleim's Review System gives you the knowledge and confidence to pass.
- Evgeny Kilin, CIA, Russia
I found the Gleim Review System to be extremely beneficial in my preparation for and passing of the CIA exam. By following the steps outlined by the Gleim materials, I was able to study in a disciplined and efficient manner. Prior to taking each part of the CIA exam, I was extremely confident in my knowledge of the test subject matter and the scope of the exam. I am very thankful for the assistance and guidance
that my personal counselor provided me. He responded promptly to my inquires and reassured me that I was on track to successfully pass the exam. I am very grateful to the entire Gleim team.
- Robert Weintraub, CIA
The Gleim study materials have been very useful in preparing for the CIA examination. I cleared all 3 parts in the first attempt, and am now a Certified Internal Auditor thanks to the Gleim study material. Personally, after taking Part 3 of CIA, I felt that the Gleim material on Part 3 was excessive, but equally necessary to get the concepts right. Thank you once again for facilitating my success.
- Sachin S., CIA, India
Gleim provides all the tools necessary to pass the exam via a precise methodology. The Gleim Review System covers all subject matter pertaining to the exam. The coverage is precise and there is no overload of information. No doubt, Gleim material is more than enough to pass the exam. I am planning to use Gleim for the CMA exam as well.
- Abdul Nazar, CIA, United Arab Emirates
This was my last exam. I used the Gleim Review materials. The Gleim System was able to provide me with a different perspective and an introduction to additional topics/questions that differed from the other study program I had used.
- Myles K, CIA
The Gleim review system is an organized and systematic approach to studying for the CIA exam. If the suggested study approach is closely followed, you will have no issues with passing the CIA exam! I will continue to take the online self-study classes for my required CPE for the CPA and CIA.
- Marsha Hopwood, CPA, CIA, CRMA, FLMI
For someone coming from a non-traditional, non-Accounting background, the pursuit of becoming a Certified Internal Auditor can be a daunting challenge. By using the Gleim Review, I was well-prepared and knew what to expect on Exam Day. The material is presented in a straight-forward, easy-to-understand format, which allows you to focus on improving your weaker areas as exam day draws nearer. Not only did I pass all three exams on my first try, I was also able to gain a great deal of knowledge from the Gleim material that I am putting to practical use in my career. I recommended Gleim to all of my colleagues pursuing the CIA designation. My personal counselor was an added bonus whom provided encouragement, advice, and helped me avoid common pitfalls such as falling into the memorization trap. I highly recommend anyone pursuing certification to choose Gleim as their preparation study system.
- Jeremy Wright, CIA
I chose the Gleim System to study for the CIA exam because my counselor was there to help me focus my efforts when my busy work schedule forced me to put off studying until just before my exam date. My counselor was able to provide me with a study plan that focused my efforts and made the amount of material less overwhelming. Additionally, the Gleim System is easy to navigate and the score reports and graphs are easy to read. Also since it is supported by various browsers, I was able to move around my apartment to study from my computer, to my tablet, to my phone when I needed to change my scenery or sit in a more comfortable position. Thus the Gleim System fit into my schedule and allowed me to study anywhere, anytime. I would tell a friend that Gleim is the way to go for the CIA exam review, especially when it comes to cost and personalized help.
- Mayra Villalta, CIA
For me, the success stories were a great motivator. If it worked for someone else, that meant it was worth trying. Given that I had tried other methods and fell short on two parts, I gave the Gleim review a try. It felt good being in control of my own success. The exam became second nature after using the Gleim system. It isn't a gimmick. Studying starts being fun because you are not memorizing the content, but understanding the materials. We all get desperate once we have attempted these exams once or twice, but Gleim really works.
- Vukosi Sondlane, CIA, South Africa
The Gleim system gave me a structured platform for progressing through each study unit. It was easy to track my progress and manage my time expectations, the latter being essential to exam preparations. Gleim's goal is to help you pass the exam with the minimum amount of time and effort expended. Trust the process and you will pass! I will use Gleim for any future exams I undertake!
- Peter Swail, ACA, CIA, Ireland
I have over 30 years experience and 20 of that is in audit. I thought it was about time to get the CIA designation, but I'm about to turn 50 and I wasn't sure if I could do it. I was also concerned that certain areas might be weak points because I hadn't worked with them. The Gleim system allowed me to quickly identify strengths and weaknesses, and then focus additional study on the weak areas. After I passed part 1, I had complete confidence in the system and was able to pass all three sections in just a few months.
- Thomas Bishop, CIA
I would like to take a moment and express my appreciation to Gleim for the well written and easy to use study materials for the CIA exam. I passed all 3 sections on the first attempt within a 4 month period. I have used Gleim previously to pass both the CPA and CMA exams so I expected nothing less from this material. Easy to use, well written, web based for mobility, and a live counselor to help keep the study plan on track. It is difficult to ask for a better package than that.
- Eric Quattlebaum, CPA, CMA , CIA
The Gleim system allows me to do my review at my own pace, while the performance history shows me where I am weakest. I focus more on my weaknesses while maintaining my strengths. I used this strategy on all three parts of the exam. I would recommend Gleim to others and if asked why, I would simply point out the many people that have passed using Gleim, including myself. Gleim is a proven system and it only requires personal dedication.
- Wilbert Macabenta, CIA, UAE
The Gleim materials really helped me to stay focused and the material was easy to understand. The Gleim review is great for those who have
busy work schedules or who may not be confident with some of the information. It helped me to note the weak areas and how I could make improvements. The Gleim staff was very professional and nice to work with; they provided tips and encouraged me to keep moving forward. Gleim has helped increase my confidence because it helped me to achieve a milestone in my career. Subsequently, I have been able to help my firm
with the knowledge that I have gained from using the Gleim materials. For these reasons, I would highly recommend the Gleim Program to any one
interested in taking the exam.
- Sonya Williams, CIA
The Gleim Review System was personally beneficial to me because it presented information in a logical order that built upon key concepts, so that I could actually learn the material instead of "cram" the information in preparation of an exam. The tools in the program also helped me plan out my study time and prioritize my weaker areas as the review progressed, so that the final review time could be spent on areas that needed more attention. I would strongly recommend the Gleim Review System to anyone attempting to pass the CIA exam. I would recommend following the steps outlined in the program and taking advantage of all of the pieces of the system (reading the book, audio review, online quizzes, practice exams, exam rehearsal). All of the pieces of the entire system complemented each other and allowed me to not only learn key material but retain it for later use "on the job".
I would consider Gleim for continuing professional education. Personally, I am not interested in CPA, CMA, or EA, but I would bet that the learning systems are great products.
- Nathaniel Sives CIA
After having my daughter, it was time to finish the last exam to earn my CIA designation. I studied off and on for months, just going through the 2,000+ questions Gleim offered to practice for the exam. I went to take the test and sure enough, I failed. Disappointed with all hope lost, I called Gleim to see if there was anything else I could to pass this exam. My Personal Counselor recommended I purchase the full Gleim Online Review System with Exam Rehearsal. Still devastated, I obliged and purchased the review system. Shortly after starting the review, I realized I had been studying wrong the whole time. My goal was to get a 100% on each practice test and would achieve this by memorizing the answers to questions, which does not help when the questions are worded differently on the actual exam. The review system taught me to understand the concept, rather than memorize answers. This trait ultimately led to me passing my exam on the second try and I am now happy to say I am a Certified Internal Auditor. I am confident the advice of the Personal Counselor and the Gleim Online Review System lead to my ultimate success.
- Jill Holak, CIA
I can not say enough good things about the Gleim Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) review course. Being very busy with work as a manager with numerous associates reporting directly to me, home life and other matters requiring my attention, the Gleim study format and test bank of questions were excellent for helping me prepare for the CIA exam. After signing up with Gleim and strictly following their study methodology and utilizing all their resources (e.g. personal counselor, Gleim staff for answering study material, etc.) I passed all three tests (Parts 1, 2 and 3) on the first try and I would recommend this review course to anyone who wants the best chance to pass.
- Donald Bodnar, CIA
I purchased and used the Gleim System to study for all 3 parts of the CIA exam. I found the Test Prep questions were extremely useful and they simulated the actual test environment very well. I would definitely recommend Gleim to anyone wishing to pass the CIA Exam. Thanks Gleim!
- Terry Jackson, MBA, CIA
The course was very well developed and the material very conducive to my learning and lifestyle. For the first couple of weeks after I began studying, my exercise habits stopped and I was beginning to feel it in my alertness level and overall stress level. I then figured out that the Gleim on-line study course did not prohibit me from studying and exercising at the same time. I downloaded the audio portion to my iPhone so I could listen to the audio portion of the lessons while cycling, running, or walking. In addition, if I was exercising on the bike, elliptical, or treadmill at the gym, I could also take tests, quizzes, etc. This helped to reduce the impact on my lifestyle. The planning calendar [Study Planner] was very useful at keeping me on track and letting me know when I was getting behind. The reporting mechanisms in the on-line course helped me to know exactly where I needed to spend my time before taking the exam. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who was contemplating the exam.
- Fredrick Pieper, CIA, CPA
I have used other CIA test prep materials before and I can say that the Gleim Review System does an excellent, and superior job of preparing you for the exam. The Gleim system allows you to focus less on your proficient areas and more on areas where you need extra help. I couldn't have done it without Gleim.
- Dominique D., CIA
The Gleim system was very comprehensive. Its multifaceted review was very useful. I would definitely recommend Gleim to others.
- Lorenzo Festl, CIA
Gleim Review System is a focused, time-saving, and excellent study material, hands down! -
- Sanjay Gokhale, CIA
Gleim provides all the tools necessary to prepare in well an efficient and flexible manner for the CIA Exam. The most benefits from my perspective are the study materials and the large number of true and false questions and multiple-choice questions. The tools of Test Prep online were helpful to identify weak areas and to concentrate the effort to subjects where it is needed. The valuable advice and guidance of my personal counselor who knew what has worked for most successful candidates helped me keeping on track to success.Ã? I would tell friends to trust the experience of Gleim in preparing thousands of CIA candidates to pass the exam. What has worked for them has worked for me. The study materials contain all the information you need which are subject of the exam questions. Unlike other exam providers Gleim avoids an information overload.
- Dirk Betke, CFSA, CIA
I value the repetitive testing nature of education systems, an ability to pre-test my knowledge and visibly see my weak areas. Where I feel Gleim shines is in the provision of a hands-on personal counselor. My counselor was in contact with me immediately when I purchased the Gleim system, and monitored my progress, initiating communication at milestone points (80% through the exam part, pre-test simulation, etc.). I find test questions where there is an explanation as to the wrong and right answer and why, is key to absorbing the underlying concepts and to assimilating the favored terminology. I would use Gleim for ongoing Continuing Professional Education purposes.
- Graham Tranter, CIA
The guides are easy to digest and make great reference points when used with the online questions. The online question database is the key to passing because you are easily able to understand why you missed questions instead of just memorizing the right answers. It's a great study system and I highly recommend it. It was suggested to me when I began to pursue the CIA and that advice was perfect. The online questions are easily accessible and I never had any system problems that interfered with my studies - reliability is high on my list.
- Traci Wright, CIA
I passed the CIA exams with the aid of the Gleim review system. The Gleim learning method was very effective in helping me acquire essential knowledge within a short time frame. I passed all three exams on first attempt within six months. The Gleim approach, through audio/visual presentation and compact reading materials, facilitated knowledge acquisition in a systematic and efficient manner. The rich multiple choice question database did not only help consolidate what I have learned but also polished my exam technique. In addition, the responsive question and answer interface with the counselors helped me in clarifying and overcoming the challenges I faced in dealing with some difficult subjects.
- Amy Wong, CIA
I passed CIA exams using the Gleim materials. The Gleim Review System benefited me personally in many ways. The study planner helped me to come up with the time budget and the automated emails alerting me if there is a gap between planned and actual completion dates made me to stick to the study plan. True/false questions made me to crystallize the concepts and helped me to select the right response out of other distracting alternatives. My counsellor supported me and encouraged me well throughout the preparation. I certainly recommend the Gleim review system because it is the method for success in the CIA exam!
- Venkata Bendapudi, CIA
The course outline and the test prep were very useful- they allowed for efficient preparation for the CIA exams. It took me three weeks to study and pass the CIA Part III exam, and 2 weeks for the CIA Part I and II exams. Without the test prep, I probably would have required a longer time to prepare for the exams. I would tell colleagues that Gleim is definitely value added and a must, in my case, for efficient completion of all CIA exams.
- Wendy S, CPA, CMA, CIA
The Gleim Review System was amazing and was vital in my preparation for the CIA exams. Using Gleim I successfully passing all three parts on the
first attempt! The online system allowed me to study, review chapters and do test questions everywhere and from various devices including my
cell phone, tablet and iPod. I would advise anyone who is serious about passing the CIA exam to use Gleim!
- Maurice Jones, CIA, CFE, MBA
The Gleim Review System allowed me to work at my own pace in a format that was conducive to my learning style. The Audio lectures were great for listening to while I traveled or doing chores around the house. I have recommended Gleim to a couple of my colleagues gearing up to take the exam.
- Antionette Sehon, CPA
The Gleim review system was amazing! It is extremely well thought out and designed to not only help you understand the information you need to pass the exams, but to help assure you comprehend and retain the core body of knowledge needed to work in the profession of internal auditing. I would urge anyone considering a review course to not waste time trying to determine which review course is best, as Gleim IS THE BEST!!!
- Dale V. Jones, CIA
I passed all parts of the CIA exam on the first try thanks to Gleim! I was able to create an effective study plan based on Gleim online, Gleim's practice tests, and the book. The practice tests and the Exam Rehearsal helped me feel confident I was adequately prepared before each exam. The material is both in depth and simply presented. I recommend Gleim to all my
- Rachel Howell, CIA
I would like to thank all the great team at Gleim. Now I get the CIA designation and the CMA certification with Gleim. It gave me all confidence that I need to achieve my goals. I recommend to every one who wants to get CIA or CMA to depend on Gleim. Save time and money and go directly with Gleim to make our dreams happen. I intend to continue with Gleim to get the great certification (CPA).
- Alaa Bakr, CIA, CMA
I am writing this review because I am one of those people who are skeptical about reviews, I decided to give It a try after reading the success stories, to my pleasant surprise it worked, I passed both the CIA and the CPA exams. I would not have passed without the Gleim Review System. The structure provided me all that I needed to succeed on the exam. The Personal Counselors exceeded my expectation. I have already recommended the Gleim Review System and will continue to refer it to all potential CIA and CPA candidates. I will continue completing the CPE requirements with Gleim.
- Dan Ssozi, CIA, CPA
I purchased the Gleim Review System to prepare for (and pass!) Part III of the CIA exam, and what a fantastic system! This was my second attempt to pass Part III, and since I had purchased a different review system before, I knew I had to try something different. I particularly liked Gleimâ€™s built-in Study Planner, which kept track of my progress daily, and Gleimâ€™s extensive study bank of true/false and multiple choice questions. They really mirrored the content on the actual exam. I NEVER would have passed had it not been for Gleim, and I would definitely recommend the Gleim Review System to others, especially if they have (unsuccessfully) used another review system as I did.
- Scott Harmon, CIA, Afghanistan
If you want to become a CIA, Gleim is the way to go! I followed the study steps suggested by Gleim full kit study materials and passed ALL 3 exams from first try. The materials are well adapted to cover all you need to know in order to pass and the real exam looks easy. I tried other providers study kits and the study materials focus was not aligned with the real exam program. I am very happy I discovered Gleim and I would recommend it to everyone planning to embrace CIA.
- Silvia Caraman
I had been studying with a competitor's review materials for several
months but only started using Gleim materials and questions about a month before my exam. I definitely feel as though Gleim got me to pass. The material was more in depth, easier to read and digest, and the questions were more challenging.
- Erin Mire, CIA
I have passed the last part of my CIA examination today and have qualified as a CIA. I have passed the CMA, CPA and CIA certification exams using Gleim. With adequate effort, Gleim (courseware and support) is a sure way to pass these exams.
- Ramakrishna(Ram) Vasudevan, CIA, CMA
I found Gleim very convenient, very easy to understand, especially with the additional audio explanations and text provided. The feedback to questions was instant. I would tell friends and colleagues that I found Gleim extremely useful and having done the CPA Review as well, that is the best resource out there to ensure success on the first attempt if the study guide is followed.
- Ivana Mathias, CPA, CIA, Canada
When I decided to become certified, a colleague recommended Gleim and so I used Gleim review books and test prep software to prepare for the CIA exam. As a new auditor with no accounting background, I relied on Gleim to help me pass. I would definitely recommend Gleim to anyone looking to earn this certification.
- Tania Costain, CIA, CGAP, Canada
I passed part 1, 2 and CCSA. Part 3 gave me a little trouble and I also tried material from a competitor, but went back to Gleim, where I felt that the content is more conclusive and realistic. You need hard work but the material from Gleim is adequate to prepare for this exam. Generally people say just do the questions, but this time I read the material and then did the questions which re-enforced the principals. Questions change but the principals remain the same, that's what worked for me.
- Ajay Goli, CIA, CCSA, South Africa
As one who decided later in her career that it was important to sit for
the Certified Internal Auditor exam, I turned to the name that I trusted and got me through the CPA exam thirty years ago - Gleim. And as someone who had never taken a computerized certification test, the online course was beneficial as it provided me with the tools and the confidence to take the examination.
- Sara Mikuta
I used the Gleim system to prepare for the CIA exam. It took me about 60 days from the time I started to pass the exams. The online tutorials and tests were a great way to study for and prepare for the exam. The system complemented my busy schedule.
- Bart Zaiger
Thank you again for your CIA online review product. I've really enjoyed while preparing the exams with it, and, of course, it is very effective. I've passed exams on the first try and acquired useful knowledge that I can apply in my everyday work. Based on my impressions and experience I strongly recommend to all my colleagues, buying and using Gleim courses for preparation for the exams and using in their work. I wish the Gleim team all the best!
- Andrey Zakharov, CIA, CISA, Russia
Thank you for the study material for the CIA certification. I passed CIA 1 and CIA 2 and I'm currently studying for CIA 3. I found the material really good, clear, complete and in line with the exam.
- Valeria Laspina, CIA Candidate, Italy
For me, the most beneficial component of the Gleim Review System were the practice exams. The feedback provided by the practice exams helped me to better understand and remember the subjects covered. After taking several practice exams, my scores improved, giving me the confidence I needed before taking the actual CIA exam. Most importantly, I learned a lot of new things from the study materials. I have been able to apply the newly acquired knowledge to my audit assignments even before I completed the examination process. This is the primary and long-lasting benefit I received from this experience. I would definitely recommend the Gleim Review System to anyone who wants to prepare for their certification exams.
- Edwin Alcantara, CIA
I am very happy to inform you that I passed the last part of the 4-part CIA exam (part 3) and obtained my CIA certification. I am also glad that I used the Gleim system to prepare for all parts of the CIA exam. I would recommend Gleim to any candidate to prepare and successfully complete the CIA exam. The Gleim method of learning, which I think is combination of understanding the concepts, practice and learning from your mistakes, is very effective.
- Abdirahman Mohamud, CPA, CIA, CRMA, Saudi Arabia
The Gleim system helped me pass the new exam in the three part format in less than three months while working full time. The layout of the materials and the flexibility of using the test bank questions was very helpful. I felt confident and prepared going in to each exam and was able to pass all three parts on the first attempt!
- Leslie M.
I have finally completed all four parts of the CIA exam and finally became a Certified Internal Auditor. Throughout this phase, Gleim provided me with perfect guidance and I completely owe my success to Gleim. I did not only passed the exam, but also had the sweet feeling of learning a lot of information.
- Firat Gulenc, Istanbul, Turkey
Two weeks ago I took successfully my last CIA exam (part IV) and obtained my CIA designation. To a great extent, for all four parts I relied on the Gleim studying materials. As a result, I passed all the exams on my first sitting. The Gleim materials are very flexible and user-friendly. What I appreciate most is the amount and diversity of questions (especially in the Test Prep) as well as the opportunity to go through any marked/incorrectly answered questions whenever I have time. From my experience so far with CIA exams, I can assert that understanding and applying the audit concepts is what counts most.
- Ivelina Georgieva, CIA, Bulgaria
I used the Gleim Review course for parts 2, 3 and 4 of the CIA and passed on the first try. I'm 37, married with children and working full time in addition to traveling for business constantly, but with the Gleim online system, audio reviews and printed material available everywhere I went, I was able to complete all exams and pass on my first try.
Thank you Gleim Review..Highly recommend!!
- Jaime Castellanos
I think clearing exams on the first attempt says it all about the quality of Gleim study materials. I have noted that one needs to just follow step by step guidance given by Gleim in preface of the book and success is theirs. I am highly recommending Gleim to all those who consult me about CIA study materials.
- Nalin Mistry, CIA, Oman
Thank you for all the help and assist throughout the last few months. I have passed all 3 parts of the new 3-Part CIA modules with the first attempt within a time frame of 4 months, with the help of Gleim products and services.
- Heinrich Joodt, Namibia
I really thing that the Gleim Review System Is a very effective CIA exam preparation tool. I have used it to prepare for all 4 parts and passed them without fails. So, I think that the examination results are the best indicator of the worth of Gleim Review System. I will definitely recommend the Gleim Review System to my colleagues and friends and it will be my first choice for preparation of other certifications.
- Lubomir Todorov, CFE, CIA, Bulgaria
The Gleim Review System is ideal for busy professionals. The system allows you to focus on areas where you need improvements. Therefore, I studied less time than recommended and passed each part on my first attempt studying with Gleim. It also has a larger bank of questions than competitors that prepares you very well to the exam. This is the system I would recommend to anyone who wants to study and learn efficiently.
- Stephanie Coache, CPA, CA, CIA, CRMA, Quebec Canada
I passed the CIA exam - all parts, first time I took them. Thanks to Gleim's EXCELLENT review materials!!!
- Sarah Bee- MBA, CIA. Senior Lecturer, Seattle University
The Gleim system provided a structured, comprehensive study plan that enabled me to pass the CIA exam on the first attempt. I would recommend it to anyone planning to become a Certified Internal Auditor.
- Anthony Smith
Gleim is awesome! Having a personal counselor to consult with as needed was extremely helpful, especially when deciding on a study schedule. The materials and methodology I applaud because of the ease of use and was also very easy to understand and apply. I plan on using the Gleim Review System to study for Parts 2 and 3 of the CIA exam and I'm seriously considering using the Gleim Review System to study for the CPA exam.
- Donnetta Hanson
Thank you, Gleim! I passed all parts of the CIA exam using only Gleim material. Following your recommended method of study was key to my success on the exams.
- Levi Dickerson
I have passed the 4th and final CIA exam as of yesterday. I used the CIA Gleim certification study guides to accomplish this task and though I did it gradually, part by part, I have achieved success. I want to thank the Gleim organization for all of their support through the years. I would have never been able to do this without you. I graduated from college many years ago and wasn't sure how well I would adapt to this process. I am deeply grateful.
- Sam Lisuzzo
Recently, I took the CIA exam and passed. I was so comfortable during the exam that I had seen everything in the Gleim review material. Nothing was out the world; however, there were 4-5 questions, I had no clue about and I had made educated guesses on those. Personally, I would score Gleim review material a 10 on a scale of 1 - 10. It is 100% guaranteed that it will help a candidate to pass the exam. The books are well detailed, online software is user friendly, and the support of personal counselor is available all the time with minimal response time. I would recommended Gleim to everyone out there who would like to become a CIA in their career.
- Rahul Singh, CIA
I have used Gleim material for my CIA exams and have passed all parts on the first time. Gleim has the most comprehensive collection of questions. I would tell my friends that, the way Gleim has put the units together helped me comprehend the whole idea and the essence of every unit. It was very clear and effective. I am thinking of taking the CMA and would definitely use Gleim.
- Ahmed Ayad, CIA, Australia
The Gleim material is very flexible and user-friendly, what one needs when using Gleim study material to understand the concept and not to expect the same questions to appear the day of the exams. It should be emphasized that Gleim offers the best materials for student who are doing home study, it does not require a teacher to explain. Buying Gleim study material is like buying the keys to success and it saves costs and time. For those who want to move with their careers fast, then Gleim is the answer! If CMA was offered here in Africa I would have gone for it but unfortunately it is not here.
- Christopher Hankwembo, CIA, Zambia
I found the Gleim study materials to be comprehensive, motivational, and fun. In particular, my success in passing Part 3 of the CIA exam was in large measure attributable to the quality of the Gleim system, which I recommend for anyone attempting to earn this certification.
- Joe Lynch
Just letting you know I passed all CIA Exam parts with the wonderful assistance of the Gleim study system. I'm now a CIA. Thanks for all your help! If I ever need help with another certification in the future, I will definitely choose Gleim again.
- Gerard J. Kroll, CIA, CGAP
I successfully passed my CIA exam in November 2011 and your review materials were of invaluable assistance to me. The books were very well designed and straightforward, providing a deep understanding of what the CIA exam is all about. Your Test Prep was an effective tool in testing the acquired knowledge and evaluating my progress. I am about to take on the CPA exam soon and will certainly keep using the Gleim Review System. Thank you very much for your excellent products.
- Henri Dilli, CIA, Germany
The Gleim Study System was so easily comprehensible that even complex topics could be understood easily. I used the system for all four papers and passed them each on the first sitting. I would definitely recommend this system to anyone who is considering the CIA certification. I'm considering the CPA later and I'll definitely be using the Gleim System for my studies. A BIG THANKS the Gleim team for such a great job in putting together such great study materials. Excellent job.
- Hamphroy Francis, CIA, Jamaica
I used Gleim for Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the CIA program. By using their materials and following their study plan, I was able to complete all 3 parts successfully on the first attempt, in less then 3 months without needing any additional resources.
- Colin Williston, CA, CIA
The Gleim System for Success equips CIA candidates with a timeline for preparation based on the number of hours dedicated per week, a structured approach on how to prepare for the exam, insight to the material included on the exam, tips on how to improve test taking skills and personal counselors that provide timely support during preparation. Through the use of this system coupled with the study materials and test prep software, I am happy to report that I passed each of the CIA Exams on my first try!
- Nicole Dove, CIA, CRMA
With some hard work and lots of repetition in my studying style, Gleim provided me with an excellent framework for me to learn and practice the material, strengthen my weaknesses and pass the exam. Thanks Gleim!
- Caterina V.
The Gleim material was very representative of the examination. Also, I found the organization of the material to be extremely helpful, particularly the online pre-tests to identify areas that needed special attention. That really helped me use my available study time, which is
limited, very wisely.
- Pat Patten, CIA, CISA, CRMA, William S. Smith Certificate of Honors Award recipient
After an unsuccessful challenge to Part II of the CIA exams, my supervisor recommended the Gleim review program to me. I've used the Gleim review to complete Parts II, III, and IV and was successful in obtaining my CIA certification. The study guide and practice exams were very useful in expanding my depth of knowledge and giving me a better understanding of the material. Thanks to Gleim I've passed. I would definitely recommend Gleim's CIA review program and would tell a friend that it works. The context, format, information, resources and materials will provide you with the basis you need in order to achieve your desired results.
- Joe Kelemen, CIA
First I would like to thank you very much and the members of Gleim for the valuable support I have had during my studies for the CIA. I completely rely on and trust Gleim materials and before applying for any other certification, I will choose the certification for which there are available materials through Gleim. I had a lot of benefits from Gleim materials, in addition to studying the CIA, I also had a valuable source of knowledge covering the different subjects of the CIA certification. In addition, the questions in the test preparation software gave me guidance on how to think about and understand the topics and to not only memorize information. If a friend asks about about Gleim, I will tell him that based on my opinion and experience, Gleim organization provides valuable materials for studying the CIA. Also Gleim members provide valuable professional support for the applicant. I would certainly use Gleim materials for studying the CMA, I am looking forward to starting the CMA and then the only source of materials that I will use is Gleim.
Gleim helped me prepare for the CIA exam because of great study questions, very similar to those in the test. One of the great advantages of Gleim is the test environment for the practice exams, you can't get nervous if you did those tests. It is a great tool, is not expensive, and is of top quality. I will definitely recommend it.
- Nelson Moreno, CIA
Thank you so much! I followed the Gleim process exactly, and it was very helpful. Once I completed all the sections I used the test prep software to review questions...A LOT! I also went back to pages I marked in the book to review information I couldn't grasp as easily as the other information. I have highly recommended the entire Gleim process to friends wanting to pass the CIA exams, and will continue to do so in the future. I think it's a good way to get through the material tested on each exam and to practice questions.
- Sarah Price, CIA
I am very grateful to the Gleim team for their support over the last 6 months. I decided to take the CIA exam as part of my development plan and committed to have completed within the financial year. Managers at work considered it ambitious but I did not really realize. To be successful, I would say that candidates need to have a defined work program, stick to your program, and have some kind of motivation/personal goals to complete it. Honestly, some parts of the CIA content are dry and it is a real pain to go through the material. Gleim materials provided me with "synthesis"of the main material. Also it was
quite user friendly (easier to read!) than the normal material with key concepts, references to IPPF when required and key examples. Also the
Gleim team assisted me with defining a work program, setting short term goals to be ready for the "D" Day. The software (with MCQ) is very
useful as it also provides "techniques" to prepare for the exam. Lastly, the Gleim team was very responsive and returned all my questions
with detailed responses! Gleim advertises that they promise candidates to pass exams the very first time. I was very skeptical but must confess
and admit that it did work for me. I would encourage CIA candidates to work in collaboration with Gleim. It is an investment but you can quickly expect a return on it!
- Nicolas Roth, Australia
The Gleim material was recommended to me by several colleagues. The structure helped to guide my studies, ensuring that I used study time to the fullest. After working through each unit, I felt as though I had a much better understanding of the topics. The practice tests through the test prep helped me to improve my multiple test question answering skills.
I took my first CIA exam today and passed on my first try. The Gleim study material was very useful - there was no material on the test not covered in the study material.
Thanks for the support!
- Kailyn H.D.
Previously, I was using a competitor's program and failed twice. Then, I changed to Gleim and bought the Test Prep Software. I really don't have much time due to my audit schedule, so I tried all the questions going section by section. And then, I analyzed the answer and if I still didn't understand, I did further research to understand the questions and answers. I tried to finish all questions within specified time suggested by Gleim. I still had a feeling from answering the first question that I'll pass, and yes, I passed my last and toughest paper thanks to Gleim!
- Siti Rahmah, CIA, Malaysia
I tried other study materials, but my real success came with the use of Gleim. The materials are exceptionally well organized and the ability to create customized tests for areas that need extra attention makes Gleim a must have for successful studies.
- Kerry Bailey, CIA, CPA
I have used the Gleim review courses to study for both the CPA and CIA exams, and they were instrumental in helping me pass each part of both
exams on the first attempt! Gleim is well worth the money, and I recommend their products to all of my friends and colleagues! The practice exercises and tests contained in the online review course perfectly replicate the true exam experience, and will prepare you for what you can expect on test day. The outlines in the study workbook are concise and easy to follow, and they contain many diagrams and exhibits that will help you understand the material more efficiently. And the best thing about this program is that if you need any help on any topic, Gleim Accounting Training Consultants are there to answer your
questions. I want to thank all of the staff at Gleim for putting together such an amazing review course!
- David Edwards, CIA
Thanks for your assistance throughout my preparation for the exam. I must say Gleim materials was more than sufficient in assisting me to pass the exam. The combination of the manual and test prep was so fantastic not just for the CIA exam but better understanding the study units. I used Gleim approach for each of the topic in the study units. This really assisted me in that I got a better understanding of both the topics and also the way questions are structured and the expectations of the examiner. I will refer my colleague to you as I always do.
- Gbenga Babatunde, CIA, Nigeria
Gleim material is designed with utmost attention to detail which provides high level of conceptual clarity to the candidate. It also distinguishes itself in presentation of material in such a way, which stimulates the learning process to the vital points in a practical way. The volume of practice questions provided as a part of software download along with explanations leaves no stone unturned and is a path breaking way to success if handled well by the candidate.
- Vikrant Tanksale, CIA, Oman
Gleim materials were of high professional quality and the software is user friendly. It is thorough in content and any candidate determined to pass only needs to supplement the study with quality
effort from their side. The update features and built in system to track progress are worth mentioning. Concepts covered were well written, crisp and short for the candidate to know the basics and master exam content. In some cases, we need to supplement our preparation with other methods. I used the book and software very extensively and put in over 75 hours for each of the part. My preparation and my professional experience including CMA came in very handy. The way software is designed prompts the candidates to assess their readiness to take the challenging exam. In a nutshell, Gleim materials are great tool providing immeasurable value. I would recommend Gleim publications for its flexibility and high quality content. In fact, I have already recommended to two of my friends and they have purchased the materials from the authorized dealer in India.
- Ramesh Lakshmanan, ACA, ACMA, CIA, CMA
I have used Gleim review course to pass both the CMA and CIA exams. Perfect course - just what you need to pass!!!
- Tarek Bastami
Personally I felt that Gleim materials are very informative and precise. In addition, there is a feature to analyze my weaknesses and help me to focus on those. This is excellent Study Materials. Value for money!!!
- Marco Lee, Malaysia
I am very glad that I chose Gleim Review System; thanks to my mentor, who has been a CIA for many years. I met her a year ago and expressed my interest in the internal audit area; she recommended the Gleim Review System. I purchased the system online right away. I never regretted a day. I have found it very helpful in providing the most updated knowledge and business trends that the world is embracing. It also organized knowledge and information in a concise, systematic fashion so I did not have to read 10 books to find the same information. I have earned my MBA degree and taken many accounting courses. If I have to prepare for the exams alone without Gleim system, it would have taken me much, much longer to pass the exams. The Gleim system compresses 10 financial courses and two-year classroom study into 5-6 units that did not take me more than 3 months (I don't believe you have to have a MBA degree to understand Gleim review.) The system refreshed my knowledge. It helped with passing exams, it was also useful in my work life; e.g. situational leadership, negotiation skills, etc. I completely recommend the Gleim review system to anyone who is interested in writing CIA exams I personally may, in the future, look into the CMA exam.
The Gleim Review System changed my life. Prior to the Gleim Review System, I was studying an extensive number of hours over several years. This affected my life, my family, and my stress level. After purchasing the Gleim Review System, I was able to concentrate my studying and pass the FIRST time around. Something I couldn't do with the materials I had been using. If your time is valuable or you need extra assistance, then the Gleim Review System is the only way to go. Gleim gave me all of the information and questions I needed to pass. I honestly feel like I was ready to give up on the exam. It was Gleim that showed me the light. Thank you. I owe my success to Gleim.
- Heather Lucas, CPA, CUCE, CTGA
I used the Gleim review system to complete Parts 1-3 of the CIA (I had Part 4 recognition and didn't need to take that part). With the Gleim system, I was able to organize my studies to successfully pass all 3 parts the first time. I was able to accomplish this while working full-time, caring for my three children, and juggling schedules with my wife who was also completing her master's degree while working full time and completing an internship. Frankly, I would not have completed my CIA without the assistance of Gleim and highly recommend your
learning system to all who seek professional certification. Thank you so much for your help!
- Gerard Kroll
I appreciate the excellent support and service by Gleim. Gleim review materials itself provides a complete reference and insight required for the examination and along with my experience as an auditor, helped me to clear examination in the first attempt.
- Sarath Kumar
I have used other materials for my CIA exam prep and unfortunately I was not successful on the exam. I switched over to Gleim as a last ditch effort. I was able to pass section 4 after using Gleim to prepare. I feel as though Gleim is very thorough with the information provided in the study materials. I also believe Gleim provides a great explanation as to why a particular answer to a question is right or wrong. I truly believe its just as important to understand why an answer is wrong as it is to understand why it is right, and Gleim has truly perfected this.
- Della J.
The good thing about Gleim materials is the Practice Exam focus. I was able to complete all the parts on my first attempt despite having very limited study time. I work in a lean audit department, so pressure on time is always high. I have already recommended Gleim materials to my friends still taking the exams. I jokingly told them Gleim is exactly what the doctor ordered! It was great using your study kits.
- Patrick Katuruza, CIA
The Gleim Review System was exactly what I needed to pass the CIA exam. It provides structure to your study plan and allows for flexibility with a busy schedule. I also found it helpful to communicate with the Personal Counselor at Gleim who helped me review my study plan and answer questions along the way. I would not have passed the CIA if I didn't use this great system!
- Amanda Barnhart, CIA
With profound gratitude and a deep seated appreciation, I wish to inform you that I passed the CIA Part 1 examination. At first I thought all the testimonies were mere marketing strategies, but I just witnessed that - "it is real". With Gleim, success is indeed assured on the first attempt, albeit with proven hard work. As I continue to pursue the remaining parts of the exam, I thank the entire Gleim team for their commitment and support to ensuring nothing is left for those determined to succeed.
- Chinedu Umechukwu, Nigeria
I was completing part 3 of the CIA whilst on parental leave and I wanted to get the exam finished before I went back to work, and I was finding it challenging studying with the printed materials. I first chose to purchase an example exam in order to see where I was in terms of readiness for the exam and scored 60%, I knew I needed some more support. When Gleim contacted me with the opportunity to purchase the bank of questions I thought that would be a really helpful option and it was. In particular I found the ability to select different sections to focus on useful as this allowed me to complete a practice 20 or 30 questions in between looking after my daughter. Perhaps one day I would score 50% in the business process section and with some practice I saw this increase to 85%. Once I was completing 90 questions at a sitting with 80-90% I knew I was ready and this all occurred in the space of 3 weeks.
- Natalie Barrett, CIA, New Zealand
The Gleim product and materials were helpful in assisting me to pass my 3 parts (didn't need to take 4th part) all on the 1st time. I would
recommend the product to a friend. The book was very clear and did a great job of covering all the detail you needed to study for to help you
pass the exam. I appreciated the personal consultant that stayed with me through the process, checked in and made sure I was staying on track. I also liked the feature at the end of each section, if you provided any feedback that needed attention in any way, you had a response from Gleim to help you with questions, frustrations, etc within 12-24 hours. I definitely would not of passed without the study materials that Gleim provided.
- Jamie Majerus, CPA, CFE, CIA
I have passed all four parts of the CIA exams within the period of three months all thanks to GLEIM Review. The CIA programme felt simpler and manageable. I therefore commend GLEIM study system it really works. I passed Part I on 17 September 2012, Part II on 01 October 2012, Part III on 05 November 2012 and Part IV on 15 November 2012. Thank you to the Gleim team.
- Innocent Khumbudzo Tshiruruvhela, South Africa
I liked the Gleim System because I was able to study anytime, anywhere through their website. The study materials allow you to focus on weaknesses, was on target with exam questions, and you are able to tailor your studies. I would certainly use Gleim again as it provided me with ease of study and proven results. I passed all 4 parts on the first try.
- Vivian Portunato
I feel really prepared to the test; it was not difficult. The test felt like a normal study session, just easier! Thanks Gleim!
- Nelson Moreno
I would like to thank Gleim for the wealth of studying material that was provided with the CIA Gleim Review System. I found the Review System to be thorough and this helped me prepare in all the areas I needed in order to pass the exam. I especially liked that the subject matter was broken down into manageable sections and related questions. The wealth of sample questions helped tremendously also because it tested the subject material in different ways that enabled to get a complete understanding of the concept. I also liked the customer service that I received; representatives got back to me right away whenever I left messages. I would definitely recommend the Gleim Review System to anyone and I do plan on using Gleim's materials for CIA CPE requirements. Once again, thank you for your support.
- Karen Chin, Specialist, CIA
I've used other materials and I think Gleim has been the best by far. The test questions and materials more closely match those on the actual test.
- Christian Riley
I just took my exam this morning and PASSED! I followed the Gleim plan by the book and felt very confident walking into the test. Gleim makes
learning the material so manageable! THANK YOU GLEIM!!!
- Andrea Eaton-Jackson
Gleim Review System really helped a lot. I tried to answer the questions on the software after studying every unit. It was never a burden to study or to solve questions because I am really interested in the profession and also the language was really easy to understand. I would definitely recommend Gleim if someone asked.
- Murat Gunaydin, CIA
I LOVE Gleim!!!! Nothing else compares to the quality of my study materials with Gleim.
- Jovanne Hughes
I used the Gleim materials for my CIA exams and found it extremely useful, easy to understand and a great value for money. I would and have recommended Gleim to my colleagues. Oh yeah, EXCELLENT customer service as well.
- Lakesha Ross-Duncan CIA, ACCA
I passed Parts 1 and 2 of the CIA exam thanks to Gleim. I bought the complete set of Gleim review materials and just followed their advice. I can tell you for sure that it really works. What I like about Gleim is that it is well structured and the concepts are very easy to grasp. Therefore, if you commit yourself to a clear study plan, you will definitely ace your exams.
- Witikind N'Dri
One of the critical elements for successfully completing a certification program is choosing the right exam preparation system. For me, I knew I had to find a system that could help me to pass the exams, be reasonable in cost, and not require me to attend classes. Gleim fulfills all of these needs, so I chose it and passed my CIA examinations. I recommend Gleim to other candidates, and I am planning to use them for my CPA certification. Thanks.
- Abdel Latif E. Salih - CIA, CMA & MBA
I found the Gleim Review System, mainly the Audio parts and the on-line tests very helpful. I was listening to the audio parts while driving. By doing so I was efficiently using otherwise unproductive driving time for thinking about the CIA exam concepts. I have already recommended Gleim to a few colleagues of mine in Romania and Slovakia as a very helpful tool for preparations for the CIA exams.
- Vladimir Gonda, CIA, Slovakia
This review course really helped me focus my study sessions on what was important and relevant to pass this part of the CIA exam. I feel very strongly that I would not have passed the test without Gleim review. I appreciate your help and assistance in getting this far. Now on to Part 3!!!

One of the critical elements for successfully completing a certification program is choosing the right exam prep system. For me, I knew I had to find a system that was geared toward my busy schedule and study approach. I'm a busy professional and don't have extra time to a attend class or read numerous text books. When I ultimately found the Gleim system, I knew I had found the right study program for me. As I started seeing successful results when I completed the CMA certification, I continued to use the Gleim system to complete the CFM, CIA, and CPA credentials. I'm proud to say that I now have four major accounting certifications and could not have done it without Gleim. What's truly unique about the Gleim system is the variety of study options included with the overall system. Users have the option to use hard copy, online, or audio materials. For me, the online materials were very convenient as I could access the data much quicker. Plus, when I'm traveling, having the online or audio option was much more convenient to hauling around heavy books. A huge plus. The greatest benefit achieved by using the Gleim Review System is obtaining my accounting certifications. Having these credentials has given me a huge boost in my confidence level in working as a controller and interacting with my peers. It helped provide me with the credibility I needed to succeed in my profession! I would absolutely recommend Gleim to others. Best system on the planet. I would use the Gleim Review System a hundred times over again. They have refined and perfected their system over the years where it's become nearly impossible to fail an exam if a candidate follows your guidance and puts in the prep time.
- Robert Crow, CPA, CMA, CFM, CIA
I just passed the CIA Exam with Gleim and wanted to say thank you for your support, and the study materials which I found very valuable.
- Norbert Tschakert, Ph.D., CPA, CFE, CFF, CITP, Salem State University
The course materials are to the point. They help you to focus only on the relevant material and to finish in less time.
- Praveen Jha
For my CIA and CMA I used only the Gleim products. Believe me, if you use Gliem, you won't need any other reading materials for CIA or CMA. I'm a glaring example of that. I passed all parts of CIA and so far CMA Part 1, in one attempt and Gleim products helped me a lot in my endeavor. Currently, I'm preparing for my CMA Part 2 and again with the help of Gleim materials alone. After passing my CMA, I'll go for CPA, insha allah and that would also be with Gleim, no doubt. I wish all the success for Gleim and its readers. I must also appreciate the prompt and constant support that I've received from Gleim.
- Dewan Mohammad Ziaul Hasan, CIA, Canada
I am delighted to report on my great experience with your excellent CIA Review materials.
I successfully passed the CIA Exam in November 2011 and your Review materials were of invaluable assistance to me. Thank you very much.
- Henri Dilli, CIA, Germany
I passed all parts of the CIA exams on the first try during the last 10 months. Gleim has been instrumental in my success and I would like to
recommend anyone who has aspirations in passing this exam to seek the assistance of the Gleim materials and/or counselors. I had comparable
success in my EA exams, passing each exam on the first try within one year as well. Gleim does not claim to know what will appear on the test they just provide the materials to cover the entire
course contents and leave it up to the participant to study. Study the Gleim material diligently and enter the exam center with confidence. I am currently doing the Certified Government Auditing Professional (CGAP) exams and it is a pity that Gleim does not have materials for that exam.
- Dion Mc Donald, EA, CIA
I wanted to extend a sincere thanks to the Gleim team & their materials for helping me pass the CIA Exam! The materials are laid out well, and the information is presented very clearly! I couldn't have done it without you!
- Mohammed Zubaier Ahmed, CIA, Bangladesh
The Gleim Review System was essential in helping me study and pass the CIA exam. I found the study material straightforward, easy to follow and practical. I purchased the Gleim Review System and followed the study plan that they provided, which was a roadmap to completing and passing each of the four parts of the exam. The Gleim Review System's pretest, review study material, test, and review the problem areas, allowed me to grasp each of the parts with ease and confidence. Also, as a working professional who travelled on a regular basis, Gleim's test prep for pocket PC and test prep CDs allowed me the freedom to study anytime and anywhere. Given the depth of material and easy review system, I would recommend Gleim to
anyone seeking to pass the CIA exam. Since I became a licensed CIA in October 2011, I am considering Gleim as one of my sources for obtaining my continuing professional education (CPE) credits needed to maintain my CIA license. Thanks again Gleim for your help.
- Fredrick W. Lee, CIA
I successfully completed the CIA examinations in 2011 and my success came from following the Gleim study plan and sample tests. I continue to praise your product to my non-certified coworkers and will always be a fan.
- Bob Lightfoot, CPA, CIA, CRMA
I was really pleasantly surprised by the Gleim materials, especially the book. The lucidity and the simplicity with which it is written induce you to study. Gleim study aids are especially fabulous for average students Thanks a lot Gleim, for enabling me to clear my CIA Part-I on the very first attempt. Keep up the good work.
- Purab Chatterjee, India
I passed all 4 parts of the CIA on the first try. It took me a 2 year span to find time to study. With full time work, kids, house work, it was not
easy to find time and pass the exams. I am thankful for the materials which I purchased from Gleim which were very good. I worked hard but the materials were tremendous help.
- SJ, CIA
I have earned the CIA designation. I must say your Gleim System is excellent and I passed all four exams at the first trial. I also tried a competitors but yours is much more sophisticated than the others. Thank you very much.
- Shiro Honjo
After having gone through the CPA exam and the intense studying that goes along with that, I was not sure whether or not I was ready for the full commitment it takes to study for and pass another multi-part exam. Between working a full time job and planning a wedding, my days were jam packed. Gleim provided me with the necessary tools and a realistic timeline to assist with studying for and passing the CIA exam on my first try. Throughout my busy schedule, I was able to find the time suggested on a weekly basis to read through the study units, watch the online lectures and take the practice exams. Going through all of the practice questions was vital in my preparation. I found that as long as I was putting forth the effort to go through the materials, I was able to succeed and am now a Certified Internal Auditor. Thank you Gleim!!"
- Stephanie Lazerson, CPA, CIA
The Gleim study system was helpful for busy people like me struggling to balance work and family time. It provided me a structure to follow. I diverted many times from my study plan that I set-up due to heavy work commitment as well as family. Some questions in the Gleim material similar to what were tested in the exam. On my actual exam, I managed to complete all questions and gave myself 30 minutes to review flagged questions and a quick review of all questions for a final round. The personal counselors were quick to reply my queries during my study. My investment in the Gleim study system is indeed a positive ROI. I've successfully passed Parts 1, 2, and 3 (exempted Part 4) using Gleim study materials.
- Gerard Chan Chee Cheong, Malaysia
I want to let you know that the Gleim study materials were instrumental in my success for passing Parts I, II, and III of the CIA exam (exempt for Part IV-Professional recognition). The quality of the answers to the multiple choice questions is absolutely astounding. Not only does Gleim explain the correct answer but also explains the three other erroneous answers. Also, the quality for the price is excellent.
- Michael E. Parietti, CPA
Thank you so much for all of your encouragement and support in helping me pass Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the CIA Exams! (I am exempt from Part 4.) Your product kept me focused on pertinent information without wasting time on irrelevant information. As a busy wife and mother of two sons, who works full time as well as referees basketball at night and on weekends, time is very important to me. This course allowed me to focus on the important items in a structured manner that I needed to stay on target for being ready to pass these exams. The questions were relevant as I found that a lot of them were on my exams. I will definitely recommend Gleim to other CIA candidates!
- Becky B Davidson, CPA, CISA, CRISC, PMP
I felt that the questions on the exam, overall definitely called for me to really scrutinize the content of the question and all of the possible choices. In a case where I did not automatically know the answer, I had to be very discriminating to rule out the choices to arrive at the best possible answer. I think the test study material and information from Gleim was extremely helpful in preparing me for success. I did put in a great deal of time preparing. I am very happy with the results of my effort and the assistance I got from the Gleim materials.
- Carolyn Schneck
Thank you very much for your support in helping me to pass Part 3 and 4 of the CIA exams! You and your organization have provided me with high quality training materials, excellent support, and timely answers to my queries. I will surely recommend Gleim to other CIA candidates.
- Adrian Catalin, CIA
I used Gleim to help me pass the Auditing section of the CPA exam. I have since used Gleim to help me pass Part 2 of the CIA exam. I am currently using the Gleim materials to study for Part 3 of the CIA.
- Meagan L.
Not only did Gleim help me pass the BEC section of the CPA exam, but I also used it for Parts I - III of the CIA exam. In regards to BEC I felt that the CPA exam materials I had through another company were not enough to get me to pass as it took me a few times. When I received Gleim I found the Audio Reviews to be very helpful as I used them in the car on the way to work. In addition the course materials helped me to stay on track. In regards to the CIA exam I found the books to contain all of the material that was tested on the exam. I felt truly prepared and was not caught off guard by any surprises. I would definitely recommend to anyone that in order to pass it is not enough to do the questions alone, but one must be very familiar with the terminology discussed in the Gleim books as well.
- Michael Bertha, CPA & Accounting Manager
I want to say thanks to Gleim as a whole for the preparation materials over the years for the CIA. I could not have passed and gotten certified without Gleim.
- Michael, Auditor
I successfully passed at first attempt all the parts of the CIA exam! I started with Part 3 in September and passed all the other parts in December! Despite having a full time audit job with assignments all the time around the world, I managed to pass the exam thanks to the efficient Gleim material! It is a reliable methodology, very reassuring for a full time auditor. The
personal counselors were very helpful and overall the material is very cost effective! I am so happy and confident that I've decided to pursue the CPA exam as well with Gleim's help!! Thanks Gleim!
- Mariem Boye, Paris
I used the Gleim CIA Review and earned the William S. Smith bronze medal award for 3rd highest score in 2009. I was very happy with the effectiveness and efficiency of your test preparation system.
- Jaime Raffo, CPA, CFE, CIA
I initially used Gleim for the Certified Internal Auditor Examination (CIA). I felt that it was easy to use and was helpful at pointing me in the direction that I needed to study to successfully complete the examination. As a result, I completed every part on the first try. Subsequent to that, I used Gleim to study for the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) examination and successfully completed each part on the first try. I think both preparation materials saved me a significant amount of time and energy which was important to me since I was working full time. I also found the Gleim staff both helpful and easy to deal with. I recommend anyone who is serious in obtaining professional certifications to use Gleim.
- William Scarborough CPA, CMA, CIA, CFE, CVA
I was exempt from Part 4 as I am a CPA, but took the other three parts this weekend and passed them. I wanted to thank you for the use of the Gleim CIA materials as they were a big help and very representative of the exam contents.
- Joe Seltz, University of Houston
The Gleim Online tools were perfect for me. I travel a lot for work so being able to study as my time permitted was a huge convenience.
- Julie, Barcelona
I want to let everyone know that it was the Gleim study materials and personal study counselor that was assigned that was the key to me passing the CIA exam. When I read that the pass rate was 40%, I knew that I was going to need the best study materials available. Following the Gleim five step study approach provided me with the answers,
information, and tools that I needed to take all 4 parts of the exam with the confidence necessary to PASS. I did need to retake Part 3 a second time and that is when the extra help came to my rescue. I called my assigned counselor for help and suggestions as to what I was missing and where I needed to focus my attention. Together we worked out a study plan that helped me understand the specific areas that I needed to review to maximize my study time. Following the study material and guidance from my "study coach" helped me pass Part 3 and earn the CIA designation. Thank you for all that you have done to help me achieve the CIA designation!
- Derek Johnson, CIA
I did the Part 1 CIA exam yesterday and was successful. I must say the Gleim System works!!! From following the step by step preparation process of completing the reading material and doing the quizzes. I was able to use the performance graph and target my weaker areas for
revision. My Personal Counselor was also a source of support with the phone calls and emails. I was also very comfortable in the exams, the screen, and everything was familiar, and I knew how it felt to do 100 questions beforehand. The exam checklist and exam advice also gave me confidence
going into the exam. Thanks again to the Gleim team."
- Simone Ramsay-Knight
Thank you! I was very pleased with my experience with the Gleim CIA system. You gave me a great start by creating a personalized study plan for me and recommended the right materials for my learning style. One area that I feel sets Gleim apart is the excellent and thorough explanations of problem solutions provided. Thank you again for an awesome product - I passed on my first attempt!
- Diane Peters, CIA, Internal Controls Manager
I have just received an e-mail from The IIA (USA) notifying me that I am now CIA certified. I used your material 100%. I passed all three parts on the first attempts; Part 1 in August 2010, Part 2 in December 2010, Part 3 in May 2011. I got an exemption for Part 4. I would recommend anyone studying or wishing to study the CIA program to use Gleim material. Thanks a lot to the Gleim team for helping me attain such a powerful qualification.
- Casper Nduku, CIA
I found Gleim's Review System to be comprehensive, informative, and extremely easy to follow. The resources and tools provided by Gleim helped me pass each section of the CIA exam with ease, and confidence. I would strongly recommend Gleim's Review System to any aspiring CIA.
- Manoj Jonna, CIA, CPA
The Gleim materials were very instrumental in attaining my CIA certification. I would recommend Gleim Publications to anyone who would like to obtain their CIA certification.
- Kevin Thomas, MBA, CIA
Thank you so much for the fast turnaround and the materials. My students will greatly benefit from them. You are a great organization to work with.
- David Dahlberg, CPA, Associate Professor at St. Catherine University
The Gleim CIA Review materials are excellent. Not only do I recommend them to my students, but I used them myself when I studied for the CIA exam. As a result, I was able to pass the CIA exam on the first attempt and received one of the William S. Smith Certificate of Honor Awards. I attribute my exam results to the Gleim CIA Review materials.
- Professor Ed Etter, Ph.D., CPA, CIA, CFE, Associate Professor of Accounting, Eastern Michigan University.
The Gleim Review System was instrumental in helping me pass all four parts of the CIA exam. The books were easy to follow and the test-prep
questions sufficiently covered the topics tested on each exam. The best part about Gleim is that you get assigned to a Personal Counselor who is there to answer your questions as well as keep you on track towards meeting your review goals. I could not have earned the CIA designation without Gleim!
- Frances M. Callahan, CIA
I passed each part of the CIA exam the first time with the use of the Gleim resources. The resources transferred the required knowledge and skills necessary to successfully prepare for each exam.
- Mark Zillinger, CIA
I would like to thank all the people at Gleim! I recently passed my CMA Part 4, and completed my journey to pursue multiple licenses, CPA, CIA and CMA. These materials are well-organized and easy to follow. Try to pursue multiple licenses just like I did after being inspired by Dr. Gleim!!
- Li-Yih Chiu, CPA, CIA, and CMA
Very good study material. A well-organized, comprehensive course, which helped me to pass the CIA Exam.
- Mohammed Kalim Shaikh
I am very happy to report that I passed both Parts I & II of the CIA exam. I would recommend to anyone to use the Gleim study materials to prepare for the exam. Also, the exam tips in the material were very helpful, particularly in the aspect of time management.
- Abdirahman Mohamud
Gleim is the absolute expert in providing the tools and methodology needed to be successful in passing the CIA exam. I took part 2 and passed today. Thanks again for enabling my success!!
- Mary Hinkle
I took the CIA Part 1 Internal Audit's Role in Governance, Risk Management and Controls exam and I have been informed that I passed. I really appreciate the Gleim education materials, which allowed me to better study and pass the exam. Gleim is part of my success and I will continue to study with the Gleim System. I have to say thank you very much for your support and good service.
- Ahmed Said
Thanks to Gleim I have passed my CIA Exams. I passed all three (Parts1, 2, and 3) the first time. You have an excellent self-study system, especially the tests on the computer. Thanks.
- Stef Borghouts, CIA
It was a very long and hectic journey but I was able to endure and pass each and every CIA and CMA exam on the first attempt by relying solely on Gleim. My study plan was simple! The more time I invested in your products, the more confident I felt and the closer I became to accomplishing my goals, and now it's finally over! I'm certified! Thank you for all your infinite help and support. I couldn't have done it without Gleim!
- Mohamad A. Mneimneh, CMA, CIA
As I studied and worked through my Gleim materials, it was easy for me to see why Gleim is considered to be a premier provider for CIA Certification learning materials. My background is in IT and I have a BA in Business Administration. However, by using my Gleim materials, I was able to sufficiently refresh my understanding of all processes and also learn many things that I had never been exposed to. Every Gleim employee I have dealt with has always been very courteous, professional, supportive and encouraging along the way, which made the difference for me. To summarize, Gleim has an excellent system in place to learn the materials needed to prepare for and pass the CIA exams.
