Finally its over and i cleared my CISSP in first attempt.

My CISSP Resources...

- Sybex 7th edition
- Eric Conrad 11th hour

Test Series
- ISC2 test series
- Shon Harris 4th edition test series
....both of the were recently released.

It took me exactly 4 months to prepare and give the exam.

Exam today

I didn't had a sound sleep last night due to anxiety and nervousness. Not more than 4-5 questions got repeated and so rest all the 245 questions were new to me though the concepts i had read somewhere or the other. The exam was really tough and in between i felt that i may fail today but then i took a break at that moment...had a chocolate which i had carried with me...pumped up myself to give my best and finally finished all the questions and review in around 4 hours.

Thanks to many of you in this forum who gave tips and shared their experiences which helped me pass my exam today...

CCSP on my list next..

    A quick advice for those who are going to give the exam....around 5 questions out of the 250 questions i think were similar to those questions which i had attempted earlier via Shon Harris or ISC2 practice tests and rest all questions or most of them were new and i have never seen them before. There were times during the exam when it seemed to me that i won't pass but if you feel so, then take a break and may be eat something (may be a chocolate) and then come back to your seat to attempt the rest of the questions.... this worked me for me and i hope may work for everyone. Best of Luck :)
