Davis CISA Review Course


Robert has consolidated in this product the knowledge he acquired in obtaining CISA certification, providing instruction to CISA study groups, and authoring CISA knowledge diagnostic tests.  This is available as 6 CD-ROMs and 6 downloadable CD images (EXEs).

The CISA Exam consists of 200 questions to answer in four hours.  To learn about the requirement for taking the exam and the requirements for becoming a CISA review the material on the ISACA web site -  click here.   

On the ISACA web site you will learn a great deal about both the exam and certification including the fact that more than 60,000 professionals have earned the CISA since inception, so clearly many people agree: earning the CISA is a good career move.

You will also learn that the US Department of Defense (DoD) 8570.01-M "Information Assurance Workforce Improvement Program" manual names ISACA’s Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) certification among those approved for DoD information assurance (IA) professionals. The directive requires up to 80,000 professionals to earn one of 13 certifications including the CISA.

In addition to the prestige of the CISA as a stand alone certification, there is an advantage to those who plan to pursue The Institute of Internal Auditors' Certified Internal Auditor certification since The Institute of Internal Auditors will allow a person possessing a CISA certification to apply the CISA certification toward Part 4 of the CIA Exam - Business Management Skills - see The Institute of Internal Auditors web site for details .
