I just passed the CISSP today and it stop me exactly at question 103.

- BS in Computer Science
- MS in Cyber Security
- 4 years in Soft Dev
- 1 years Red Team
- 1 years Application Security

I started studying around 15 Dec and I decided to spend the rest of holidays studying 8-12 a day. Approximately around 120 hours of studying.

Here are my resources in order:
1) 11th Hour 3rd Edition - Eric Conrad
2) CISSP Cram Exam 4th Edition - Michael Gregg
3) CISSP Practice Question Exam Cram, 4th Edition - Michael Gregg
4) 11th Hour 3rd Edition - Eric Conrad ** Final Review**

I have 4, interactive questions. I notice that most of my questions are very heavy on Business Continuity and Disaster recovery.

If you are able to teach someone a topic, let say encryption and make them understand it. That is a good indication that you have master it.

    @Falcon56, I am thinking about ISSAP, ISSEP or [FONT=Roboto, arial, sans-serif]ISSMP. I am doing alot of research, but there are seems not a lot of traction on this certs.
    - I am leaning towards ISSAP because I feel like this is more technical. But I want to have a management job in the near future. So, I am still trying to figure out if ISSMP or CISM is better... any thoughts?[/FONT]
