CIA exam #1 here I come

Toronto, 2012.10.10

I've signed up for the first of my CIA exams. With the waiver I've secured for exam number four, technically I'll be halfway through when I complete this exam.

Needless to say, completing the exam and having signed up are different things. I haven't even taken the step of registering, yet.

But I'm on my way. I finished the practice quizzes in the book and got a 77% average. I've got three particularly weak chapters (two on the mechanics of audit, one on fraud) so I know what to dig into next.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.
