Ah, the many threads on people studying and taking the CISSP exam, so I am adding my commitment here!

Background -
IT in US Navy 96'-2000', after that a few years as sys admin, then moved into info security/SOC experience, now doing Info Security Officer for medical industry (HIPAA compliance, risk assessments, vulnerabilities, et cetera).

Taking the CISSP exam, June 19th. Company will re-imburse for the exam, if a pass. icon_cheers.gif






Study materials -

1) CISSP Study Guide (nook/tablet version) Eric Conrad-2nd Edition
2) CISSP 11th Hour (nook /tablet version) Eric Conrad----Will use this as others have, for last week or two before test to really drive it home.
3) "Sunflower” CISSP study guide .pdf link http://www.kilala.nl/Sysadmin/Images/CISSP_Summary_V1.1.pdf
4) CCCURE (thousands of practice CISSP questions/$25) https://www.cccure.org
5) CISSP "Combined Notes" found here on techexams http://www.techexams.net/attachments/forums/isc-sscp-cissp/5583d1406742120-passed-cissp-yesterday-cissp-combined-notes.pdf


Hopefully, that should cover it?
(I cannot do Shon Harris' book, it is simply something that my brain will shutdown on. She did great work, and during her life she undoubtedly was a great asset to the CISSP community, but I've looked at the book, and I have to say that it's not for me. Other's have had great success with it, and it covers all, but uh....eeeeek!)


Off to study, and any advice would be greatly appreciated. icon_study.gif

    Infinitely curious to see how the reduced domain structure and newer question format will work/look like. Almost curious enough to go spend an hour and a half and take the "new" exam and see for myself. I have my own suspicions as to what to expect having taking the exam on paper, the concentration on the computer but old system and dozens of other psychometric exams both computerized and paper based.

    Please let the community know your thoughts afterwards.

    Will do, beads! I'm sure others will chime in after April 15th, and adjustments will be made to study tactics, if any "needed".
