Practice Exam Questions

There is no better way to prepare for the exam than practicing exam questions. Your CIA prep course will have a test bank of thousands of past exam questions for you to work with. Use it!

Make time in every study session to take at least 2 different quizzes. One should be a review of the topics you covered in the past. The second should be a quiz on the topics you are currently working on.

Answering exam questions helps you understand the topics covered on the exam, remember important facts, and improve your test-taking skills.


Pick a Study Time

Are you a night owl or an early bird? Study at times when your brain can effectively and efficiently process and absorb information. From my personal experience and from results of neuroscience researches, early morning is the ideal time to do studying and reading for me.

Some people can’t study in the morning because they have kids who need to get to school or daycare. Other people can’t study at night because they have other responsibilities. It doesn’t matter when you study. Just make sure you pick a study time and stick to it. Being consistent is everything.


Set a Study Schedule

Making study sessions short and daily will help a lot in comprehension and retention of concepts. Ensuring that 25 minutes a day to study a concept is better than studying everything in a day. Give the brain a space to rest and recover.

Remember consistency is key. If you want to pass the CIA exam, it’s not a sprint: it’s a marathon. Slow and steady passes the exam!


Explore Ways to Study and Take Advantage of Them

Think about your average day and figure out a way to maximize downtime and pick up study time. This could mean a bunch of different things based on your learning style.

Per esempiu, listening to audio books while stuck in traffic or in the train on your commute to work is a great way to take advantage of your downtime and increase your study time.
