EXAM RESULTS IN - PASSED!

I used this in conjunction with the ISACA question and answer books available on their site. This book did a good job of giving me the basics while the question/answer books gave me a good feel for the kind of questions asked on the exam.

Don't rely on the questions in this book to offer much in the way of actual exam preparation - those questions are NOTHING like the questions on the exam, but the fundamentals taught in the book are essential.

It seems to give a good introduction to the CISA exam requirements.

A good introduction to information system auditing topic, especially when you're preparing to CISA. I found that almost all question on June 2008 CISA exam are covered by this book.
