Just curious, has anyone here used the official ISC2 CISSP app to study, and how do you like it? Is it worth the $9.99 price tag?

It's available on iOS and Android.

    Nice to have, but not essential. Expensive vs content. I got it and I am pretty sure it is the same question than in the Sybex books.

    But whatever, it's only 10$.

    I used the previous version, which I didn't find useful. Not enough questions, and they were not challenging enough. I am uncertain if it has been updated recently.

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    Quick review, just purchased the $14.99 bundle for the review app and the test app ($9.99 each).

    The only discernible differences between the two is that with the review app you get flashcards and some different test questions. The short domain practice tests (25 questions) are a good way to kill time, I also do a couple of tests before I go to bed.

    I bought it and I found it very useful. The questions can be repetitive since there are only about 300, but what I really liked was the flashcards. I was on that app a lot. For instance, if I was standing in line, I whipped out my phone and went through some of the flashcards or did a small 15 question test. Anytime I had time to use it, I did. Drove my wife crazy for 3 months, but by the time I took the tests, I had mastered just about all the flashcards and questions in that app.

    The real thing that helped me with that app is that I flagged questions I got wrong and went back to study them again. I took the time to understand the concepts.

    Another app I really liked was the CISSP Flashcards app on Android. Its a free app with in app purchases to remove the ads. Overall, I really liked it as there were many different flashcards to use.

    Haha, good to know I'm not the only one!

    Is there an iOS version of the CISSP flashcards app (same developer)?
