About to schedule my CISSP...

Hi All,

Been studying for the CISSP for the last month or so and looking to book the exam for around February.

I have 11 years IT experience ranging from service desk, desktop support, team lead and for the last few years 3rd line networks (with a specific focus on Security for the past 18 months). I have my CEH, CCNA R&S and Security as well as a few MCPs.

Current study tactics are a couple of hours revision a day, CISSP for dummies, official CISSP flashcard and questions smartphone app, Cybrary videos and re-reading some of my CEH material.

My question is not study related, more exam booking...

When I schedule the exam through Pearson Vue it asks if I want to become an Associate of ISC2 or not. What's the common practice here? As I don't work with anyone with ISC2 certifications I'll be looking to go through their endorsement process. Confused whether I should become an assosciate at this point or not?

Thanks in advance,

    If you don't have the required experience, you would select that box. Based on your experience you do NOT need to select it.

    Many thanks.

    I presumed that would be the case, just wondered what selecting that would do.

    I passed CISSP on Saturday Nov 5th. This morning I got the email that they recognized me as "Associate of ISC2"
