4.0 out of 5 stars Fully Prepared Me, Less Thorough Than CPA Prep 1 Aug 2013
By maggie smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I selected the Wiley Exam Review book to prepare for my CIA exam because I had used them for my CPA exams and found them to be thorough. The material is covered well; however, my complaint is with the practice questions. While the CPA books had hundreds of practice questions, the CIA book for Part 1 had less than 100 practice questions total. I will continue the use the Wiley books to learn the material, but I may need to look elsewhere for practice questions.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappoining, Look around before you buy 10 May 2014
By Ironman95 - Published on Amazon.com
I just took (and passed) Part 1 after preparing *only* with this book (no notes or CD-ROM). The two stars is because I passed and some of the material may serve as a useful reference later, but in full disclosure this book alone added very little value in preparing for the exam. First, the main material in the book is just a reprint of all the IIA Standards and Practice Advisories. Those are all available on the IIA webpage if you are a member. No discussion or value added, just reprint as far as I could tell. Then the other sections bore little resemblance to the actual test questions. I ended up relying more on gut and experience to pass. I found myself during the exam cursing Wiley/Rao (Author) for passing this off as a good study guide. I'll check with some colleaugues to see if the IIA material is any better. My suggestion though is to look around. This may appear cheaper than other guides on the surface, but once you factor in notes and test bank, I think it is pretty comparable to IIA and others. If this is the best out there, I'm very nervous about taking parts 2 and 3!
3.0 out of 5 stars Need more practice questions! 10 April 2014
By Mark Ashland - Published on Amazon.com
The theory is well presented, and required reading, but only 81 multi choice questions for a 125 question exam is absurdly low and definately could make the difference between passing and failing. The exam questions are so tricky passing will be in the low 70%'s range if you do pass. Perhaps Wiley is just trying to force people to buy their Test Bank which is only good for a year. Even that product is unusual though: Part 3 has 60% of the questions for some unknown reason. The parts are roughly equal in length so I would think the test bank parts would be equal too. If anything part 1 is the longest one (125 questions instead of 100 for each of parts 2 and 3) and the one you need to pass to get to the other parts. If you consider the Wiley books as a set of 3, the other parts are slightly better in terms of numbers of questions and they end up with 325 practice questions total in all 3 books for a 325 question exam. In my experience with these types of exams (I passed the CPA, the CFE, and the Md Bar - all on the 1st time), before you take the exam you should do 2 or 3 times the number on the exam. For example, I approached the LSAT and GMAT that way with multiple books and scored extremely high on both. Gleim is better in number of questions although they also have a test bank that's extra.

Yesterday I failed CIA exam part 1 but it was really close to passing: 67% instead of 70% so if only 4 of my wrong answers had been correct I would have passed. I will take it again but now have to wait 3 months. My only assistance was this book --- next time I will somehow get enough of the extra practice questions. Studying them after doing them and learning why you got some wrong is the key to passing this exam. Only 40-45% pass on their 1st time because it's worded so tricky and time becomes a factor also. I got to the end answering every question with reasonable answers but I finished with just 1 minute left from the initial 2.5 hours which made my review of the questions I had flagged after answering almost none at all. Having 5 minutes for reviewing the answers made for the flagged questions is important; that's why doing enough practice questions is important. It enables you to speed through some questions because some of the exam questions were the same or similar from the practice ones. You only get 1 minute 12 seconds for each question and that includes reading the question, reading the 4 possible answers, and making a decision as to the answer you want to go with. That's not a lot of time. The exam itself probably should give you the additional 5 minutes but since it doesn't you have to increase your speed from enough practice. It helps you learn it better than just constantly reading a lot of densely-written theory pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars DECENT but .... 22 Feb 2014
By Keva Griffith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is formatted after the CIA Exam 2013 structure. However, there is a limited number of multiple choice questions. However it is the best that I have seen so far.
