Yay! I did it! (GCAP & CIA)

| 2 Comments | 2 TrackBacks

I passed the exam! I will now hold two certifications:

Certified Government Auditing Professional (CGAP)


Certified Internal Auditor (CIA)

I'm so excited! No more studying my butt off for exams -- that is until next month when I go back for my Masters and start taking a different kind of exam. ;)

There's still some additional paperwork and other formalities that need to be completed, but that actual exam part is done, and in a couple months I will officially have both designations.

The CIA exam has four parts to it. I passed Part I in May 2002. I didn't sit for it again until May 2004, when I sat for and passed Parts II and III. In November 2004, I sat for and passed the CGAP -- which only has one part and also counts for Part IV of the CIA.

Go me! :)

Ah, the exam is over! I studied all day yesterday and crammed in as much studying as I could this morning (the exam wasn't until 1:30 in the afternoon). I sped read through the last 40 pages while in the exam site parking lot! It's hard to know for sure how I did, but I think it's quite possible that I passed. Maybe even likely. The results will be mailed by December 15th, so I only have to wait about a month to know; which is nice.

After the exam, I went to visit Danielle and Jamie. Danielle and I went out to dinner at Bennigan's, then went back to her place with take-out for Jamie, and the three of us talked until 11pm or so I think. My cheeks hurt from all the smiling and laughing! Great to see Danielle so much happier!

I am sitting for the Certified Government Auditing Professional (CGAP) exam on Thursday in San Diego. So I hope to stay away from the computer until then so that I can study. I even took tomorrow off work. I may actually still stray, but I'm really going to try to remain focused so I can pass!
