Hello All,
I took my CISSP this past Saturday and I failed with a 660. I have been studying on and off for 6 months and felt comfortable with the material. I used the 11th hour by Eric Conrad and the Sybex CISSP (ISC)2 Certified Information Systems Security Professional by James M. Stewart. One of the major mistakes I made was I over estimated my endurance. I did not eat, I had a 1/4 cup of coffee and I did not bring any food with me. I took a 5 min water break at question 60 but felt fine and went back into the testing room. By question 200 my head was pounding, my hands started to shake and I was too hungry to think. I tried to review all question but I could not focus which led me to only go over the question I flagged. Based on my results my two weakest domains were 3 and 4. Besides my obvious mistake, I what tools/books can I use to help me strengthen my knowledge in those domains.

PS I have been in the IT field for than 15 years, I have CCNA, CCNP, Network + and vcp6-dcv.
I used the Sybex The CISSP Official (ISC)2 Practice for practice

    Did you change many answers? If you review them ALL you could change some correct answers due to being nervous and doubting your prep. When I did mine I whipped through in about 2 hours and only had marked a handful for review. I used the official ISC2 book to study.
