Passed the ISSMP exam today.

My main study material was the ISACA CISM database. (I passed the CISM exam in September.)

CISM and ISSMP are very similar in topics, as have been discussed in other threads.

Overall it was a challenging exam. I thought the questions were more straight forward than the CISSP itself, and also very practical in nature.

    So, just an update.

    The ISSMP is now part of the normal endorsement application online process. Now, that's not to say that the process is the same. You just fill out some information, and attach your current resume/CV.

    Instead of the quick process that people in the past have reported, and despite the application saying it would take 10 business days, it took 5 weeks from the date I submitted my application to approval.
