CISSP difficulty vs CISA

Wondering what the difficulty of the CISSP is vs the CISA? It seems like there isn't one designated book/test bank to review for the CISSP, and that people spend a greater amount of time studying for the CISSP. So, I'm hoping someone who has taken both can compare the difficulty of them.

Thanks in advance!

    That's a difficult question, as they are very different exams; almost like comparing apples and oranges. The CISA is more process-driven towards technical analysis of information systems, something that the CISSP really doesn't address at all (if it does, it is just a subset of a domain.)

    I personally found the CISA more challenging, because it presented concepts and terminology and logic that I hadn't experienced before, even as an auditor.
    Working on: CCSP, definitely, maybe. On the twitters: @mcole1008
