I began my professional certification journey by obtaining my Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license. I considered various review providers and ultimately invested in the Gleim Review System. I had great success with the system, passing all four parts upon the first attempt. I knew that when I made the decision to become a Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), I would once again use Gleim to prepare. With my busy work and family life, I needed an effective but efficient study system.
It was tremendously helpful to have access to online practice questions, which allowed me to study wherever and whenever I had time. Explanations for why an answer was right or wrong were available immediately, which was crucial in my obtaining a comprehensive understanding of the concepts tested. The reports feature helped me focus my studies on my weak areas and track my overall performance. I have always been an anxious test taker, but utilizing the Gleim simulated exam gave me confidence while taking the actual exam.
Using the Gleim CIA Review System, I passed all three parts upon the first attempt within four months! Not only did I pass each part on the first try, I was awarded the prestigious 2016 William S. Smith Certificate of Honor for my exam performance. I highly recommend the Gleim Review System to everyone who wants to achieve their professional certification goals.
