I took CISSP the second time today and failed with 669, in my earlier attempt i scored 630.
I have been using Shon Harris 7th edition and 11th Hour Eric Conrad.
Not sure how to motivate myself to go for it the third time

How much experience do you have?
Sometimes switching to another cert and then coming back can help relieve the stress.

Try Darril Gibson's Sybex book..I think the Shon Harris one is outdated for the new exam and the Conrad probably isn't deep enough for you.

Don't be disheartened, be positive and think that you can surely pass this time.
now you have 3 months time and focus on it from the day one.
As per your result sheet, check which are your weaker domains and focus on those domains first. use multiple resources and understand the concept and do as many questions you can. Always use different question banks and understand why your answer is right or wrong.
BTW, whatever you read now it will not go in vain. As Cissp course overlaps with CEH, CISA, CISM. and you can clear all these exams easily.

Really sorry to hear that. Did you feel like the questions were vastly different than your first attempt, or were your weak areas still struggling a bit?
I sit for my second attempt this Saturday (Nov. 4) after missing it with a 695. People say I should feel more confident second time through, but I think I'm more nervous this time.

how long did you study before 1st attempt? and the 2nd attempt? are you just reading or are you taking notes? i high encourage you to sign up for quizlet (free) and organize your thoughts/concepts/definitions. also what simulators did you use? if you didn't you should spend the money on one
