Greetings,

I passed the CISSP today after my 1st attempt. I studied every single day for 3-4 hours for a month and a half. I usually don't go on forums and post but i feel as I should share my study materials to help others down the road.

Study materials:
1.Eric Conrad 11th Hour
2.CCCure practice questions (6 months license for $49) https://www.cccure.com/cart/categories/CISSP/
3.CBT Nuggets CISSP videos (you can sign up for a free 7 day trial and view any of the videos) https://www.cbtnuggets.com
The CBT Nugs videos were very helpful. The instructor makes the videos very enjoyable and does great at explaining things.

PS. A lot of folks read the entire Shon Harris CISSP book...there is no need to go that far in depth. It is possible to pass the test without reading the book.


Next on the list is CISA... taking suggestions for any possible study material.

    Congratulations. What is your experience? I see a lot of passing threads but no one puts their experience in. This exam is mentality draining and you do need to know your stuff good. So telling people to only study from 1-2 reaources probably not a good idea.

    Congrats and great game plan! I've been on the same track using the exact same study materials. Glad to know that was all you needed. I'm NOT about to read the AIO.
