Hello to all,
I finally passed part 3 in 3rd attempt. It was not easy but the battle is finally over.
I used IIA Learning System material (books and practice questions), Gleim (just practice questions), Exam Matrix, and peaked a little bit to Wiley`s practice questions and books, and read some of IPPF literature. But relax, you don`t need all of this to pass. IMO, the best time/effect relation in order to increase your chances to pass, would be IIA Learning System + one additional material with practice questions.
For learning the theory for the exam, I like the concept written in IIA Learning Material hard copy books. I also like how Gleim has organized video lectures and presentations (try the demo), and If you more prefer this concept of learning, and not old school learning from hard copy books, maybe you should try it with Gleim. But when I was reviewing their questions (more than 2000), and than compared them with exam, I felt that they actually cover more stuff than it is actually need (especially for the financial part – exam questions are more simplified). Wiley`s book I don`t recommend to use, it is not really user friendly.
I passed my CIA part 3 exam this weekend and I can’t describe how happy I am after being studying for more than probably 8 months to approve this last part. The first time I failed. I believe it was even more difficult since English is my second language.
I would like to thank all your comments, advice, and recommendations. It was a blessing to find this site. It became my guide.
I studied from Gleim and Wiley book and CIA excel. The last week of preparation I dedicated my time to practice questions and exams from both software and also took the IIA exam practice questions and whenever I failed a question I reviewed the reason and the concept behind.
Hope this helps others
Hi, I appeared for CIA part 3 and I cleared the same in first attempt. The key to success to crack part 3 is to grasp the concepts thoroughly and solve as many questions as possible. I solved all the question from Wiley’s question Bank plus ExamMatrix. The questions are tricky but one need to read them carefully along with the choices. I followed the exclusion method before deciding on the final solution. I studied Wiley’s only and focused on question Bank.
I failed Part 1 twice. The first score was 539 and the second was 576. I was really confident the second time around. I studied on my own and used both the Gleim test prep book and the Wiley test bank questions. I’m really discouraged and cannot afford to keep taking the exams only to fail. (It’s expensive.)
