The official ISACA book is absolutely worthless. It's like reading a dictionary, a dictionary that repeats sentences, is overly wordy and reading is like eating cardboard. The ISACA questions CD however is highly worth it and very close to the questions you'll end up getting. Combine that CD with this third party book and cd and you'll be set. Good luck.
I also reviewed the ISACA Audit Standards, Guidelines, and Procedures before the exam.
Caveat: I have broad experience in products & software engineering. There were very few topics in the book (maybe just one) I did not have at least a passing familiarity with, so YMMV.
Preparing for and taking the CISA exam is a painful and frustrating process. I used this book in combination with the CD of 700+ questions from ISACA. I work as a network security professional, so I also relied heavily on my own experience and the experience of my colleagues. I interviewed colleagues extensively, particularly those with bank auditing experience and background in the financial industry.
My own background includes 10 years as a Network Administrator. I had few worries about the technical material: my main concern was how to think like an auditor. In that, I found this book very helpful. I read through it more than once. The chapters introducing audit concepts I read three times, taking notes and paying close attention. It was important to learn how to translate my technical knowledge into the framework of auditing: concepts such as auditor independence, material evidence, chain-of-custody -- these were issues that were new to me, or at least new in this context.
I strongly recommend the book to technical people who need a way to shift their viewpoint into the mindset of an auditor. There is a structure to auditing that is not covered in most IT training, and thus is new to us. But the knowledge gained is immediately useful and has real-world applications, especially if you already work in the IT security field.
For familiarity with the actual CISA exam questions, I recommend use of the CD available from ISACA. The exam itself is full of ambiguous questions. Even now, I don't know if my passing score reflects actual auditing skill or luck in interpreting the questions. The exam was also grueling due to uncomfortable seating with very little elbow room. It's an unpleasant ordeal all the way through, but I did gain a lot from the process of studying for the test and I hope the certification will be good for my career.
I think the book is great and there are hundreds of prep questions through the cd and book. HOWEVER, I found at least 2 cases so far where the answer letter is wrong. The description of the correct answer is correct, but the actual letter does not match that answer. Be careful.
