CIA Diagnostic Quiz

Take our CIA Diagnostic Quiz and identify your weak areas!

The Gleim CIA Diagnostic Quiz provides a representative sample of 40 multiple-choice questions for each exam part to help identify your weak areas before you start your exam preparations. You should use this tool to determine how much time you need to devote to studying particular topic areas.

It also emulates the Pearson Vue testing environment so you can see what questions will look like in test conditions.

Take the Diagnostic Quiz to determine your current abilities. Once you have completed the Diagnostic Quiz, you will receive an email with your score and performance breakdown by topic. You will also be able to access a Review Session, where you can study answer explanations for the correct and incorrect answer choices of the questions you answered.

Candidates who have already begun using the Gleim CIA Review System should skip the Diagnostic Quiz and immediately follow our steps for using the Gleim Review System, which incorporate study-unit-specific diagnostic testing.

If you are close to the end of your studying process and are ready to work on specific techniques that will help you succeed on the actual exam (i.e., question-answering techniques, time management, etc.), the Exam Rehearsal is just what you need!
