CISSP passed

Passed the CISSP at the first attempted. It was a grulling exam, I decided half way through I was not coming back for a repeat.

It took me 5.20hrs to complete, I had 32 questions reviewed but I didn't have the engergy to review them. The exam took it toll on me.

But I passed, i don't know by how much, but I passed.

Betst of luck to everyone else doing the exam.

One bit of advise, I wrtoe out "I'm going to pass and don't give up" and placed it within view and each time things got though I had a look at it.

    I have the Shon Harris 5th AIO book but it bored the pants of me.

    One thing, I had the exam booked 3 years ago when it was paper based but cancelled a week before due to work commitments, since then we had a baby so I've been studying on and off.

    Also my experience started 10 years ago as a network guy, then 3 years later started security, so I've the experience and qualifications in other areas that helped.
