The Gleim materials were useful in aiding me to pass all three CIA exams within just over 9 months and to my surprise I was awarded the IIA Certificate of Honour.
I found the content within the CIA books to be both comprehensive and easy to absorb, especially when used in conjunction with the online questions database. The database is useful for identifying strong and weak areas, allowing you to adjust your studies accordingly.
I undertook my studies whilst working full time, looking after a young child and moving house, so I had a lot on my plate! The materials enabled me to study as and when I could and the questions database tracking allowed me to see what I had last been working on and pick up where I left off.
I would definitely recommend Gleim to anyone undertaking CIA due to the flexibility it provides. The mobile site was invaluable, allowing me to study wherever I was, in the car on my lunch break, having a soak on an evening or just laid in bed before going to sleep. Just to reiterate, if you choose Gleim you won’t regret it. Good luck with your studies.
