Passed CISSP

I passed CISSP this past weekend and to my surprised it wasn't as difficult as I thought. I studied for about 2-3 weeks, but I did take CISM in June, so that material helped immensely, as with all information attained from previous certifications. I didn't use much material for studying, but the following stuff I did use played a key part in passing:

Cybrary.it - Watch this.....more than once until you have a good grasp.
CCCure - Must have this! Explains why the answer is the correct answer and why the wrong answers are the wrong answers!
11th Hour - Didn't really dive into it, screened Domains 1 & 8.

That's all folks! The most difficult part of the exam was the length, so fatigue comes into play. Be sure to take breaks (I took 5). If you don't know an answer flag it and press on to the next. Another note: It's an international exam, so anything US or country specific, don't even waste your time studying i.e. NIST, FIPS, etc.

    Congrats!

    @ankit2455 Thinking of some domains as more important than others will set you up for failure.

    That's another difficult aspect of the exam, all the information you have to study. If you're able to answer yes to each CIB of every domain, then you'll be in good shape to pass. ISC2 has a break down of how much material from each domain will be in the exam. Study all the domains and understand the concepts, if you do that then it doesn't matter what type of question they ask on the exam.
