God is good to me. This was a hard exam. This was my first time sitting in for this exam and the money came out of my own pocket, so I was $h1tt!ng bricks. That's all I can technically say about it per the NDA. Know your stuff. Read the questions thoroughly. Good luck!

    Congratulations! I got a few questions: how long did you study, what materials did you use and what is your background going in writing the exam? I previously did this exam back in March and just barely under the passing mark. I'm hoping to rewrite the exam in the next month or so. Great job.

    I very very casually studied for about a year and a half, but when I wanted to take the exam, I studied about 8+ hours a day for about 2 weeks.

    I'm currently a CISSP as an analyst. I work with on prem and cloud infrastructures across hybrid, and community deployments vetting CSPs for usage across saas, paas, and iaas service models all in a security prospective.

    Good luck, since you already took it, you should know what to expect from the exam. I have used mostly NIST and available information from ISO, CSA materials as well as material from ENISA. Books from Ben Malisow is worth investing for the exam.

    Got the official email from (ISC)2 on 8/2 of my official endorsement and certification as a CCSP. I took the exam on 7/3 so about a month after my submission and results and endorsement review. Not bad on turn around time. :)
