About five years into my career as a tax accountant at a small CPA firm, I made the switch to the Risk Advisory practice at EY, serving mainly internal audit clients. I had my CPA license but quickly realized that I had a lot to learn about the field of internal audit. My goal in pursuing the CIA certification was not just to add more letters to my name. I knew that through studying and sitting for the exam I would gain valuable knowledge that would help me serve my clients in my new role.
I chose Gleim to help prepare me for the CIA exam based on multiple recommendations from co-workers, and I was not disappointed. I learn best by “doing”, so my favorite part of the course was the practice exam section. The exams are incredibly helpful because answers are explained, so you can ensure you do not make the same mistake twice. If any questions are unclear, the course material goes into more depth and is very easy to reference. I was pleasantly surprised when I sat for the exam and felt like I had already answered the vast majority of questions during my practice tests. Not only did this help me pass the exam, but I also gained confidence during the test when I saw questions that I had already encountered during my preparation.
The whole Gleim experience is very user friendly and, most importantly, effective. Thank you Gleim!!!
