    Thanks. Took 2.5 hours. Thought I failed it mightily when I finished.

    Congrats! I passed on my first try but I had no idea how I did until I flipped that paper over. Kinda like a coin toss

    which domain/questions ate most of your time? and what were specifically not on the books? were there regulatory/compliance questions?

    Same here. That was one brutal test. But I'm a CIO and have 20 years in tech so a lot of this stuff I've run through in real life (i.e. especially BCP/DRP stuff).

    Congratulations to all that have passed the exam. This is a beast and if you have experience in most of the domains it should be an easy one.

    I wish it was only experience :). Even with that, it was 4 months of hard-core studying. Nights, weekends, free time. I'ts so weird to finally have my life back!

    But, moving on, going to try the CEH and then CRISC next. Maybe Amazon stuff after that.

    @jumblerr that right once you know you have passed the feeling is so wonderful. Having the life back is such a huge relief. All the very best on your next steps.
