More IIA Exam Medal Winners Passed with Gleim

  • Gleim was a great choice to help with my CIA exam preparation. I really liked having multiple learning methods available including the books which I used to learn the concepts and online practice tests which were helpful in learning how to apply them to different scenarios. It also helped to be able to see explanations for why an answer was right or wrong at the end of a practice test. The flexibility of the system and feedback to pinpoint areas I needed to work on really helped balance the demands of getting up to speed in a new job while also preparing for the exam.

  • I have worked as an ICT Auditor for almost ten years in a big European bank. I was already holding my CISA certification when a dear friend of mine and fellow auditor introduced me to the local IIA chapter and to the CIA qualification: I have to thank him for having suggested the Gleim books to me (which he already used for getting his CIA) and my company for having supported me.

  • The Gleim CIA review is the perfect CIA preparation program for working professionals. Its bite-sized lessons allowed me to conveniently fit in study time whenever I had a spare moment. The lesson materials did a great job of thoroughly explaining all the internal audit concepts. The layout of Gleim’s practice exam sessions was identical to the actual exam experience, including font, color, instructions, the calculator, and navigation buttons. Consequently on exam day I felt very comfortable as I moved through the exam questions.

  • The Gleim CIA Review played an integral role in my passing of the CIA Exam part on the first try and earning the Silver Medalist Award for 2011. Gleim’s study materials thoroughly covered each topic for every part of the exam, and reinforced those concepts with relevant multiple choice questions at the end of every study unit — many of which were patterned after past exam questions. The answer selection for each question was extremely helpful in that it not only provided the reason for each correct answer, but also the reasons why the other responses were incorrect.

    A.J. Hans Spoel Award – Silver Medal
  • Gleim was instrumental in my passing the CIA examinations. During four-plus months of hard study, I passed each of the three exams on the first try, largely thanks to Gleim’s printed and online study materials.
    I was impressed by the quality of the materials and the ease-of-use of the Gleim Personal Classroom website. The Calendar feature was very helpful in keeping me on track, and the reporting features provided multiple methods to track my progress and highlight my weak areas. I made particular use of the Performance Graphs, which made it easy to pinpoint where I needed extra work.

  • I passed all CIA Exams on the first attempt within 6 months and I was pleasantly surprised to be notified by the IIA that I was the winner of the Kurt Riedener Bronze Medal Award for my outstanding performance on the 2013 CIA Exam. I used the Gleim CIA Review System for my preparation of the CIA Exam and I was very pleased with my experience. The Gleim CIA Review System enabled me to acquire the essential knowledge in a short time frame in a highly efficient and effective manner. The study books are easy to read and digest.

  • It is an honor and a pleasant surprise to be the student award winner of 2016. I think I would not be able to achieve such high scores without the help of Gleim CIA Review. I was a student while preparing for the CIA exams so I did not have much experience. The Gleim CIA review system provided lots of great examples and interpretations of conceptual problems, and it really helped me understand how to apply internal audit concepts into real world applications.

  • As the awardee of the 2014 Dr. Glenn Sumners Student Award for the CIA exam, I would highly recommend the Gleim CIA Review program. I used the Gleim CIA Review books to study for all parts of the CIA exams and found the program extremely helpful, particularly the practice exams. The program not only helped me understand necessary concepts, but also tested my understanding through multiple in-class exams on actual CIA exam questions as well as online practice questions.

Gleim cia customer success stories

  • 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
  • Gleim was a very reliable study system that prepared me to sit for the exams. The online questions were especially helpful. During the exam, I remember thinking how the questions being asked were topics well covered in the Gleim study guide. There are other people in my department getting ready to sit for the CIA exams and I told them I had a very good experience with Gleim.

    Craig Barke
  • 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
  • The Gleim Review System benefited me personally on many levels. I was able to schedule my study time with my regular schedule of family and work. The book and the website are broken up into easy to manage sections so as to not feel overwhelmed with the amount of information. The website is well designed with multiple types of study materials, i.e. audio files, multiple choice questions, chapter summaries, etc. I was particularly pleased with the Gleim Access Until You Pass and Personal Counselors, both of which made me feel as though the company and the Personal Counselors were fully invested in my passing of the exam. I have already turned many of my fellow auditors onto Gleim. Gleim is the best study material available, and I should know. Nothing compares to Gleim.

    Naomi Pipes, CIA
  • 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 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
  • The support from the Gleim Team, particularly the personal counselors, makes it a very student-friendly and well-designed study package for the CIA exams. I am sincerely thankful for their unwavering support during my studies. I always got feedback to my queries, providing me with information and assisting me in diverse ways – all without hesitation. I passed all 3 exams at first sitting, within one year. The Gleim study package is excellent. Taking the CIA exams was just like going through one of the Gleim online practice sessions. I have gladly recommended it to others and will continue to do so. Ironically, it was recommended to me by a friend so I suppose Gleim has lived up to its name

    Mercy Harrison-Indome, CIA
  • I made sure to utilize the Gleim Instruct Videos. It made it seem like I was in a classroom again, except I was able to determine the “class time”. Personally, I learn and comprehend material better with practice. Gleim’s vast amount of practice questions greatly facilitated studying and comprehension of the topics. I would absolutely recommend Gleim to others that I know. In fact, that is how I heard about Gleim!

    Zach McCracken, CIA
  • The Gleim materials helped me pass the exam because they were very comprehensive of all the exam topics. All of the topics I saw on the exam were covered in the text or in multiple choice questions. I appreciated the numerous questions in the test bank, I never felt like I was just memorizing the answer to the questions. I also found the Gleim Instruct Videos to be very helpful. The different outlets to study (read, audio lectures, videos, Personal Counselor, and quizzes) helped me prepare in numerous ways and kept the material interesting. I would highly suggest the Gleim materials. My Personal Counselor was a great resource in my studies and always offered good insight.
