Thanks for everyone in this forum for your feedback on the exam.

I have about 20 + years in IT. doing various things such as Firewalls, IDS, Unix Admin etc.. Also have a Bachelors in Computer Engineering and Master's in Computer Science.

My wife took care of the kids while I studied on the weekends. If you are planning to have kids, take the exam ASAP. You don't want to miss out on life.

I read, Eric Conrad's 2nd edition, 11th hour and supplemented it with Shon Harris on some concepts. Glanced over NIST documents etc.., Official CBK 2015 Review Seminar Book (Co-worker passed this to me)

As for testing, I bought transcender, end of chapter questions with Shon Harris, questions from the official ISC2 book CBK and
CISSP Exam Prep Questions, Answers & Explanations.

As for the exam, i felt like i wasted lots of my time in going into details. Everything was very high level and I answered lots of the questions based upon my experience and not from any book. Lots of answers were very ambiguous so I took the best guess. I had one break after finishing all questions and went back to do the review.

Let me know if if there is anything else you would like to know.
