Hi guys,
I am new to this fourm and want some guidance for CISSP.

Can anyone please advise about following.

What is the best way to prepare for CISSP exam?

I have 4 years bachelor degree in IT and I am also CCNP Security certified. Do I still need to show paid work experience to get CISSP certified?

    No matter how many certifications or degrees you may have, ISC2 will only accept it as 1yr of experience. Therefore, you'll will have to provide documentation showing 4 yrs of paid experience.

    Yes, only 1 of the 5 years of experience can be from education.

    However, even without the experience you can still take the test. If you pass then you have up to 6 years to earn the experience.
