Struggling big time retaining all the information for CISSP. Any tips or advice?
Last weekend I finished reading the Sybex book (it was brutal to get through), but I feel like I retained absolutely NOTHING from reading it.
When I did the end of chapter review questions I did perfectly fine on all but a few chapters, but now as I'm doing their online practice questions I'm seeing things that I have absolutely no recollection of reading.
I'm currently watching the Cybrary videos, and I'm listening to Phil Martin Simple CISSP whenever I can. Even with these, I'm struggling to remember anything I've seen or heard.
I'm constantly doing terrible on the Boson questions and the Sybex questions now. I'll read the explanations and just can't compute what I'm reading or even remember or retain it.
I'm desperately looking for advice or some tips on this. This week has been horrible for studying and I'm on the verge of just throwing in the towel and saying I'll just stick with my CompTIA certifications. I really want to get the CISSP certification because it has been my goal since I first started studying for security certifications, but now I'm filled with doubt about my actual ability to do this exam.
