Great course content including working examples, not just endless video. Pocket guide by Alan Calder is included and an excellent product in its own right. The exam requires installation of a remote webcam monitoring tool, be sure to check with you Info Sec before installing it :-)

Cheaper than other options. I also did not need to take time off work to do it. The only downside was not being able to ask a live tutor questions. But it did the trick and I passed the exam by proctor a few days after signing up.

Excellent being able to study for this whenever you want. Much better than having to find the time to attend a physical or virtual class. Only wish IT Governance did more distance based courses for other areas such as ISO27001 & PCI-DSS! - Highly Recommend!
