Waqar is our first blogger for this CIA exam site. He writes for us every Wednesday.
I am glad to say that Wiley CIA focus notes are really something that I didn’t thought it would be — I mean I like them. Today I’m here with Wiley focus notes review, and why I find them helpful.
First thing which is the best about them is that they are really cheap. You can get the electronic copy for just $40 on the Wiley CIA official site. You can also get them on the Amazon 🙂 Do try them it won’t harm you in monetary terms.
2. Detailed and To The Point
I did not know that the notes would be detailed and at the same time they are to the point and focused… that’s why they name them focus notes 🙂
3. Good Explanation
Let’s get to the part where these notes are explained and I would say they are well explained. I did not buy the Wiley CIA text book and can’t compare the two, but I would say that these notes are great and really help enhance your knowledge on the subject matter.
4. Well Organized
They are really well optimized, and they help you go through the notes easily with everything so organized for you. Wiley has done a great job with the CIA focus notes if you ask me.
I would say buy these focus notes and give them a chance. For me, I love them and I think that I have put great use of my money because of the pros I described above. I am really happy that Wiley has improved so much. I used Wiley intensive review for the CMA exam. I did not like their slides (or should I call them notes) that came with the intensive review… but these CIA notes, I have only one word to describe them — awesome — and I mean it.
Lastly again I want to recommend these notes as these will help you prepare better for the exam and pass on your first try. I hope you find this review useful. A marvelous quote for my readers :
In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.”
Note from Stephanie
Thanks for the evaluation of Wiley focus notes. I haven’t got a copy myself so it is very helpful to hear your first hand experience.
Referring to your comparison of Wiley’s Online Intensive Review for CMA, I have to say that Wiley didn’t create them; it was originally developed by the IMA and Wiley started to help them update and distribute since 2013. This explains why the format and perhaps the quality is quite different.
The retail price of each focus notes is $40 from Wiley’s official site ($120 for all parts). Amazon price is listed below:

Howdy guys, I am Waqar Akmal from Pakistan. I am currently enrolled in MBA program (Third Semester) and have completed the CMA exam. I am now working towards the CIA exam.
