Passed today...

Resources used:
SANS 414 course
Shon Harris AIO (it might be sacriledge, but Shon's book just went too deep IMHO)
Eric Conrad 3rd Edition
CCCure
Transcender
Eric Conrad's sample questions
Cybrary
McGraw Hill sample questions (way too technical)


What I would recommend in order:
SANS 414 course (if you can afford it - nothing beats 1:1 interaction)
Cybrary - next best thing to 1:1 bootcamps, though SDLC content was limited
Eric's book - 3rd edition
CCCure
Eric's sample questions
Transcender

Use the sample questions after you have at least reviewed the material somehow. Results on the questions guide you to which domains you need to study more. Be careful though, as the more you use the sample questions, the more likely they are to come back up again, tainting your results artificially higher. Do not use the sample questions to merely memorize the answers to the sample questions.

    btw - tried skillset too, but was annoyed at how they forced you through each and every module in their training, with no real sense of how you were doing. That pie chart filling up was nice, but a "ready percentage" based on what they thought vs. real specific feedback by domain just didn't make sense to me at least.

    So you used the SANS 414 sample test to prep for the CISSP?  How did they stack up against the questions in the actual CISSP exam?
