Hi Folks,

I passed today SSCP. The exam isn't that hard. But it's tricky and you have to be able to think clearly in order to pass.
I thought after the first 30 questions that I am going to fail. But I made icon_cheers.gificon_cheers.gif

I used, Daril Gibbson'S AIO and read a CASP guide and finally used the sybex app for test questions.

I recommend everyone to read something extra, a CASP guide or a CISSP guide. Don't ever think that the AIO of Daril Gibosn's will ensure your success

    First congrats!

    I agree with you, the exam is not that hard. And as you.. the first 20-30 question scared me. I putted 75% of my "To review" question on those first question, then I went all right. I came back and it was not as bad.

    Darril Gibson's AIO is definitely not enough. Most of the question, I wasn't sure was from material not in the AIO. I found most of my answer in the CBK.

    I would recommend a quick reading of SSCP CBK at least.

    Congratulations! I also thought I was going to fail. It felt like I was guessing on all of the answers. When I finished, I reviewed all of answers and felt confident that I had gotten at least 111 of the 125 questions correct. I guess it was just nerves.

    I also used multiple sources. I started with the Darril Gibson AIO and then went on to the relevant sections from CASP and CISSP study guides and the Cybrary CASP and CISSP courses. I also re-studied all of the technical items that I had to learn for Security+.

    I am thinking about going for this exam. I have started reading Darril book.
    I have done CCNA and CCNA security and got knowledge about security.

    Anyone can share some exam guide so that I can test my level?

    Hi Osa!

    When you say something extra from CISSP. Which topics are you refering to?

    If we have to read CISSP then why not go for CISSP exam :)
