Selecting Gleim for my CIA exam preparation was a great choice and helped me pass all three parts of the exam within 4 months and receive a 2017 William S. Smith Certificate of Honor. I learned about the Gleim CIA Review System from friends and colleagues that have used it in the past. It was highly recommended by everyone using it, with very good results.
The Gleim system is a very thorough and comprehensive tool that was a perfect fit with my busy schedule. It takes you step-by-step explaining in great detail all the different areas of the CIA exam.
It provides real everyday examples that give the user a practical view of the topics and their implementation in real-life cases. In this way, you really understand and grasp the theory, which helps substantially in the exam preparation.
Both the books and the online materials provided are easy to follow and are designed to provide a broad understanding of the underlying concepts. The summaries, the tips and the outline format are easy to study and remember, and this reinforces the understanding of the theory.
The multiple-choice questions and the exam simulation is very similar to the CIA exams, and it gets you acquainted and familiarized with what to expect during the three parts of the real exam.
Gleim was one of the factors that helped me pass the CIA exams on the first attempt and obtain the 2017 William S. Smith Certificate of Honor. I would certainly recommend the Gleim CIA Review System to all CIA candidates.
