    As you may have noticed there are many views to your question but no answers but I thought hummm lets say something....

    Well for a start there is lot of ambiguity in your quesns or questions with the extra 3 alphabets so firstly you may fix that.

    Now for the test or xam or exam with the extra 1 alphabet I believe it is too late to make any meaningful study effort unless you want to try and cram and get lucky..unlikely scenario.

    It is hard to understand how come you landed up here days before your exam and now wish to get an injection that will fill you up with the information to get through the exam. There is no such magic that can be delivered via this or any other forum. Spend some time to read the threads and you will see people have put in months of effort and multiple attempts to make it there and you my friend are trying to see if there is an easy way out. Well the good news is that there is an easy but lengthy way. Step 1, postpone your xam to this xmas or by six months, Step 2, read SH book again and it will get better, Step 3 read through this forum to see what is a relevant question to ask and if it has been asked before and Google is your friend there, it knows everything..it will read you mind or keystrokes and give you the answers you are looking for. So be a good IT professional and spend some time to gain information and not just pass an exam.

    I wish there was a vetting system on this forum or some credit limit before you can ask a question. It seems too easy to fill a form to get an answer.

    The answer to the OP's question is simple: postpone the exam.

    People need to be able to read and write prior to taking an exam. Especially one such the CISSP where tricky questions come at you from all directions.

    thanks guys for taking time out in answering my thread..

    there are two things here:

    u might conceptually understand something but may not memorise each and every functionality,disadvantages,loopholes with that technology, which is the reason why i am getting low score.

    its not that i havent understood anything but the tricky questions are bit difficult for me ...

    thats the reason i asked for a help , meaning which questions i can practice more to get aquainted with the pattern.

    i had done 3000 questions on cccure with 80% average..

    shon harris questions are really good in assessing concept , but theu touch base minute things as well(which bcomes difficult for me to rember)

    any help is appreciated... anyways am gng to attempt exam atleast for experience

    Just relax and take your time in the exam. You have six hours, so plan to use all of it. If you start to feel anxious, take a moment to move your mind into a calm, meditative place. This will give you the best chance of realizing the correct answers--consciously or unconsciously.

    Congratulations Sridhar :)
    Will be eager to know about your experience about it, especially around converged protocols as you were also worried about it :).
