Took the CCSP Wow that was an odd exam. For prep, I read the Official CCSP Study Guide over the past two weeks, and also did the online version of the Official CCSP Practice Exams. During the exam I felt like the book only prepared me for about 40-50% of the questions I faced. Probably 30% of the questions was stuff I don't recall reading about in the study guide. The rest of them I felt like I was able to answer based on having the CISSP and general security knowledge and experience. I can definitely see how people fail this exam. I felt decent about my chances towards the end but still uneasy.
I'm just glad to have this done. It's been one I've wanted for a while and tried to ignore it but it just stuck around like a monkey on my back. I'm at a point where I hate doing non-practical certs (read and rote memorization). I just have one more that I want to achieve (TOGAF) and I'm done. I wan't to focus on pentesting knowledge/certs, and AWS/Python. Will probably sprinkle in TOGAF studying throughout because I just can't stand to try to slog through reading/memorizing again.
