Hi everyone, I'm determined to take 3 CIA exams ASAP so I can start looking for potential opportunities in Internal Audit. I've purchased the Gleim learning system Part 1, but I found that their study unit outlines are not detailed enough. And because I have no prior internal audit or compliance experience, I'm very concerned that I won't be able to fully understand all CIA materials just by studying the outline. Can anyone share with me their thoughts on this?

The study outlines don't go into details. They present contents in bullet point format, like a 'Study Guide' you had in college, rather than a textbook that explains things to you. A Gleim counselor told me that the book they're going to send me is the same exact material, and that more learning will come from doing practice questions which they use as another learning tool. But I'm not sure how just following a study guide will work for me or for anyone? I have the option of returning my Gleim account, so I was also wondering if the IIA Learning system can be better? What else should I read to get an in-depth understanding of internal audit?

I was also told that I needed 40-50 hours on average for each part of the exam. I want to take the exams ASAP andm y plan is to study for 2 hours a day for a month for each part. Would this be realistic? From your experience, how long ahead should you schedule a test date?

Thanks everyone for your input!
