Juggling school and work while preparing for the CIA examinations was difficult. Enrolling for a formal review class was not an option for me at that time. I am glad I chose Gleim CIA review system because it afforded me with the flexibility I needed.
The Gleim Review Books are very comprehensive yet succinct. They provide cross references to standards and implementation guidance, and thoroughly outline the exam syllabus. The fully customizable online practice exam has an abundant test bank and it simulates the actual examination environment well. It helps you understand questions by providing explanations to the answers as well as comments from the experts. The performance analysis also gives you tools to evaluate which areas you are doing well and which ones you need to focus on.
I would definitely recommend Gleim to CIA candidates especially to those who desire to study on their own pace and schedules. Study strategies vary for each person and the Gleim review system can work seamlessly with any preferred method.
