Additional CISA Prep Material 

Books recommended by exam participants

Cannon, D.L. et al (2006):
CISA: Certified Information Systems Auditor Study Guide, paperback with test- and bonus CD, Sybex
> link UK (discounts) > link DE

Based mainly on the 2006 CISA curriculum. Contains an introduction on role and organisation of IS Audit in internal auditing as well as with assurance service providers.

Unfortunately not very many questions and not always fully correct, but easily readable. 

Keele, A.; Mortier, K. (2005):
CISA Exam Cram: Certified Information Systems Auditor (Exam Cram 2), paperback and test CD, QuE
> link DE

Very brief and based on the pre-2006 CISA exam structure. A well understandable, quick read which leaves a bit of an empty stomach. Contains a good number of sample questions and 200 questions on CD.

Both books are more handy than the ISACA CISA Review Manual and in principle complete and correct, but not in all details. Both come with a CBT CD containing sample questions.

If you are interested in the technical side of CISA, you may fancy this book:

Stewart, J.M. et al (2005):
CISSP: Certified Information Systems Security Professional Study Guide (Sybex)
> link UK (discounts) > link DE

Covering the technical and security aspects in more depth than the CISA books. Includes 800 exercise questions on CD.

For a general overview on IT processes beyond the CISA Review Manual you probably like the ITIL v3 introduction:

Office of Government Commerce (Ed., 2007):
ITIL Service Lifecycle (Official Introduction) Paperback
