    With all due respect, there will be no skimming of text book during your CISSP studies icon_lol.gif I don't think you truly understand the vast amount of information the text book has. Granted, if you are not working and have all day, then I stand corrected or you have 5+ years of security enterprise work experience and this subject is easy for you. icon_thumright.gif

    Anyways good luck and I wish you the best, 2 months is a ridiculously small amount of time. icon_silent.gif

    I hear ya! The CISSP practice tests are really good. You will know sooner or later where you stand with the material. I used two sources or practice tests CCCURE and CISSP Official practice test.

    Good luck! I used Sybex 7th Ed and cybrary videos primarily. I also used the McGraw Hill practice tests. They were from the old 10 domain test but were still relevant. For practice tests I relied primarily on Skillsoft but was averaging about 77-78% on all tests before I took the CISSP.

    The Sari Greene videos are pretty good. The depth of content she lectures on is almost the same level as the Eric Conrad study guide but not as in depth.

    You have your SEC+ so 2-3 months should be the right amount of study time.

    I was just thinking of doing the same thing and after reading this, I signed up for the Safari subscription. I am planning 3 months of study or less.

    @gogoisgone
    I might be game for a study group. I was thinking of sitting prior to July 15th so our timelines match up.

    Op thoughts?

    Hopefully have this all completed in 2-3 months.

    For me - the best way when I took the CISSP was to just schedule a date for the exam and pay for it. It then keeps me focused that there is a due-date to complete the studies. I still ended up cramming at the end icon_smile.gif One of my buddies did the same thing but was a even bigger procrastinator and didn't start studying until a week before the exam.

    Good luck.

    I agree with NetworkNewb on that. While I would have find the study group idea fun, it is so hard to coordinate work, family, study... that it would ruined the fun. I would participate in a Facebook group, it could be an intermediate solution.

    I've been thinking about scheduling the exam but it'll be a about a year and a half out though. I think I can go a year and two months at max when I tried to schedule the exam. Anyways, I'm reading the AIO now and it's a pain in the butt to read. Especially when the chapters are 1XX+ pages! It's really crazy that how in dept that some of the info goes and from time to time, I just feel like skipping some parts because I feel like I already know it from studying for the SSCP and from school.

    Good luck on the exam and studying for it.
    Booya!!

    Booked for 8am, Friday June 30th! Was thinking of booking the week after on Friday July 7th, to make it almost exactly 3 months. But not sure if I will be going anywhere that week being it's close to 4th of July and probably wouldn't get much studying done that week.

    Bring it on! icon_study.gif

    wow man .. thats the exact date I've booked for my CISSP exam !

    Best of luck with CISSP!! After I finish up some of these other certifications, CISSP is next on the band wagon! :)

    Just wondering if anyone can answer the recommended amount of time to allocate for studying?

    I know everyone is different etc. I'm thinking around 4-5 months of study should be enough provided I do 2-3 hours a day. Sound about right?

    I like the Larry Greenblatt videos, if you email him you can buy them for $100 instead of renting them on youtube.
