Background: Mostly networking. Some Systems/basic Troubleshooting

Study Time: Previously took CEH and jumped into CISSP afterwards, about 1.5 months total of CISSP studying.

Resources: Eric Conrad book
Sybex Book
11th Hour Eric Conrad
David Miller CISSP vids from Safari

Practice Tests: BOSON
Sybex CISSP Practice Tests
Syngress CISSP 2011 questions

Was scoring roughly 80-90% on practice tests.

There is nothing to prepare you for the questions. About 30 gimmees, but the rest were brain deadening. I took just about 2 hours with no breaks. Thought about it, but I more or less wanted my misery to be over.

Felt like A LOT of questions were Domain 1,7 & 8. Which were conicedntally my weakest areas.

Now to dig into Linkedin to see if I have any CISSP contacts to get sponsored.
