I am considering taking the CISSP exam within the next year, just wanted to know for those who took all 3, how much harder did you find it preparing and studying for CISSP?

    I have 2/3 but CISSP is not a technical exam. If you understand the material and go in with the right mindset as a "Risk Adviser" you'll do fine.

    Certifications like Security+, CASP, etc. that are technical in nature, usually have a pretty clear answer. For the CISSP, you must know that technical information but then be able to make decisions as a manager taking in account risk or other factors that might exist. Taking practice exams is helpful because you can see your thought process versus the correct mindset.

    As far as difficulty, if you are looking at the progression it's probably similar to a "few" steps up from CASP because it will cover more information and it means a little more which could cause some anxiety. It wouldn't be like a CCNP going for CCIE which might require 1-2 years of study prep...maybe CCNA to CCNP difficulty.
