Hi everyone I passed after a nice week long boot camp thru Training Camp. This boot camp was certainly good enough to fine tune my skills and knowledge that I already had. Nothing on my exam was a surprise to me and I finished in 4 hours which included my review.

Study Materials:

ISC2 CBK Participants Guide
Training Camp Supplemental Guide
Sybex Book (Mainly used this resource)
Sybex questions from the book and online website.

I studied for about 2-3 months (1-2 hours a day or so) on my own before I attended this course. Certainly being able to compare the Sybex book and the ISC2 CBK book this week really showed me that the Sybex book is far superior to the ISC2 book. But the real material came from reading and learning from these forums :)

Just a quick note.. someone in my class asked to use an English dictionary during the exam but was denied. Apparently this is a new change that will be coming out? They haven’t updated the ISC2 website yet but supposedly its coming…

Cheers

    Thanks

    Everyone gets a different exam with different domain focuses. It is simply a luck of the draw. However, if you read the numerous pass threads in the last month across here and reddit, one of the top domains is typically Software Development.

    Congratulations, buddy! What did you think of Training Camp?

    Also, if you don't mind...what kind of experience do you have? What's next for you?

    Thanks everyone!

    Bloopz- As previously stated everyone gets a different exam.. somehow I got the exam with several drag and drops and multiple question scenarios.. As long as you know the material by taking the time to study concepts and have a good amount of experience, you'll be able to make it through the exam fine in my opinion.

    Claudia - I've worked as an InfoSec Manager the past year officially. But I have a heavy background in telecommunications and network security.. I worked on firewalls and network design for a several years. Also I worked as a physical security office in the military.. I have a few Cisco certs and I already had my PMP going into this exam which I though the type of questions were very similar to the CISSP... BEST, MOST, LESS, MORE.. type of questions etc... certainly testing for that exam I was able to use my tips to pass this time.

    What's next? hmmm not sure.. maybe CISM? I haven't given it too much thought..
