As many CIA exam candidates are aware, the IIA released new Standards that were effective January 1st, 2017. It is important to note that new Standards are not tested on the exam until at least 6 months after their effective date, so the earliest that the new Standards will be tested is July 1st, 2017. We will update the CIA materials in advance of the new testing date after the IIA confirms when testing of the new Standards will begin. […]

Because the CMA and CIA Exams do not need to be taken in any particular order, many candidates ask, “Which part should I take first?” I will answer that question for both the CMA and CIA exams. On the CMA Exam, the topics are not connected between the exam parts, so you will not get questions on Part 2 that are related to Part 1 topics, or vice versa. Therefore, I recommend that that you look at the exam syllabus […]
