I passed the CISSP this morning and I wanted to give back to this community.

My study plan:
  • 4 months of studying
  • 2 months reading the Official study guide
  • 2 months of testing and reinforcing my weak points with the study guide and Eleventh hour
  • Read the Eleventh Hour book twice
  • Finished the exam a little over 3 hours.
  • Read every question twice.
  • Marked ones I wasn't 100% sure until I got through all 250.
  • Second pass focused on all the ones I marked which was a lot.
  • Took 1 break
Exam was harder than I expected. Lots of scenarios and SDLC questions. I felt I was 50/50 of passing when I hit end on the exam. Good luck to everyone taking this exam!

    Congrats!!!! Sybex Official + 11th hour seems to be the best passing combo from all the posts on this forum. I used both myself based on what I read from previous posts.
