The CGEIT exam

To earn a CGEIT certification, candidates must pass the CGEIT test with a score of at least 450 (out of a possible 800) and have at least five years of professional experience in IT governance management, assurance, or control. The previous experience requirement must have been within the last ten years preceding the application date for certification.

The CGEIT examination runs a multiple-choice format and consists of a long, 4-hour session (240 minutes) with 150 questions. The examination tests the candidate’s knowledge of Information Management and IT Governance principles and practices, as well as technical content areas.

ISACA uses and reports scores on a common scale from 200 to 800.
  • A candidate must receive a score of 450 or higher to pass.
  • A score of 800 represents a perfect score with all questions answered correctly.
  • A score of 200 represents the lowest score possible and signifies only a small number of questions were answered correctly.


The exam is not taken during this training course. Exam session needs to be booked directly using the ISACA website. My personal training experience shows that delegates have the highest chance of success if they sit the exam approximately two to four weeks after completing the training course.

    Exam Simulator

    After 20 years in IT, and more than 10 years since I was dealing with ISACA exams, I’ve decided to give something back to the community. I hope you will find this free exam simulator valuable when studying for the CGEIT® exam.

    Review Manual

    A copy of the current CGEIT® Review Manual is essential (in theory) for any exam candidate. Unless you already have your copy, you can purchase the CGEIT® Review Manual on the official ISACA CGEIT website.
    ISACA store


    The “Questions, Answers & Explanations (QAE) Manual” was publicly available a few years ago (definitely, when I was taking the CGEIT® exam). Its purpose was to guide and assist question writers, making them more skilled in writing exam questions.

    The ISACA Glossary

    People taking the ISACA exam are generally quite experienced, so it may sound like a joke or an easy way to “fill the gaps” on the website, so UX design is better 🙂

    However, believe me, after passing more than 200 exams, I can say that each organization/certification body has its “flavours” and sometimes slightly different definitions of common topics. So it’s valuable to at least take a glimpse at a glossary once.
