The Wiley CIA Exam Review Focus Notes are developed for each of the four parts of the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) exam sponsored by the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA). The purpose of the focus notes is to digest and assimilate the vast amounts of knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) tested on the CIA exam in a clear, concise, easy-to-read, and easy-to-use format. Each of the focus notes book topics is organized in the same way as the Wiley CIA Exam Review book topics, that is, one focus-notes book for each of the four-volume review books. The four-volume Focus Notes books will supplement and complement the existing Wiley CIA Exam Review books. Volume 3 is entitled Business Analysis and Information Technology.
