No luck with CISSP, considering trying CISM...is this reasonable??
I have tried and failed my CISSP 2X. I felt like I truly knew the material and was doing well on my practice tests. SO the first time I failed wasn't as shocking. I took it over Christmas vacation last Dec (so yes, almost a year ago) but didn't have time to devote to studying as much as I thought I would during that last week. I reached for Feb 2018, and even took a week off work to study and still did not pass. I feel very defeated by that test. I just don't understand how to study for that test when they give you study questions in one format but then the actual test questions are completely different in a different format. I 'get' that they are not going to be verbatim, but I felt like I was taking a totally different test. My study materials given to me from the week long CISSP prep was VERY misleading. I am ready to give it another try, but am wondering if CISM might be a better fit? Not that I expect it to be easier. I just wonder if the test isn't as weird as the CISSP. Something in my brain just does not understand that test, even though I feel confident about the material. UGH. Just need some advice.
