Totally feel bummed.. i really felt the same as successrealm post.. was feeling good going in and out.. but i guess it wasnt good enough icon_smile.gif

I have 15 years of IT operations, Service Desk, Server Admin and even Technical Sales experience. Passed Security + last Feb 2015 and was studying for the CISSP on and off beginning March.

1.Shon Harris AIO & MP3's
3.Eric Conrad 11th hour
4.Cybrary Videos - Kelly Handerhan (excellent)
5.Keith Barker CBT Nuggets
6. Total Tester
7. Syngress - Study Tests

I was trumped up by the 'BEST' questions as well misinterpreting Security Ops questions, was so looking forward to getting a break from studying, but i guess the journey is not done icon_smile.gif

Thanks all for your encouragements, tips, and invaluable insights, without this community, i would be worse off icon_smile.gif Now i'm totally looking forward to passing this and posting my PASSED post.

    Sad to hear CLICK, but liked your determination/overall spirit icon_thumright.gif. Seems you were not too far, may just be 4-5 questions max.

    Best wishes to you.

    You'll be fine CLICK. Add transcender into your studies as well. Most of us get the pass on the 2nd or 3rd attempt.

    Great positive outlook.

    Have you also looked into adding the paid version practice questions from as others have used?
  • successrealmsuccessrealm Member Posts: 104 ■■□□□□□□□□
    Yeah CLICK, I feel your pain. icon_thumright.gif

    Reschedule for a month from now. I went ahead and got the Transcender pkg as well. Work will pay for the test if I pass.
    Chin up, we are GOING to DO this.....icon_study.gif

    Thanks guys, really can't do much without this community. Yeah successrealm i'm re-scheduling ASAP.. i agree i'm not too far off, surprisingly i saw like a lot of questions asking for specific answers, such as the type of protocol to be used in a scenario, etc, that was about a third of my exam,, i guess what threw me off were the vague questions with choose the 'BEST' answers.. but reflecting back i know exactly where i messed up... hoping to post my PASSED note soon enough.. appreciate you guys help and encouragement..and yeah.. i'll be hitting the transcender or cccure exam preps now too.... thanks again and all the best to those who are still on their way to passing icon_smile.gif
