Hi everyone,

I have just passed Part 1 of the CIA exam last Saturday after studying for 3 weeks using Gleim. I was so happy when the test admin printed out the unofficial exam result that I did scream and then felt so bad realizing that I was still in Pearson. Anyway, I just have one small tip. Everyone has their own strategy for preparing and taking the exam, but I think during the exam, if you run into a question that you can’t seem to answer or eliminate 3 out of 4 choices, don’t spend too much time overthink it. Instead, flag them for review later and when you go back, you will definitely be able to answer some of them because you now have fresh mind. I could answer quite a few questions at the end although I ran out of time. You never know, you could get a pass just because of the one or two points extra you get at the end, especially when the IIA doesn’t allow you to retake an exam in 90 days. Just my 2 cents. Hope this helps!
