Failed CCSP last week. How to move on?
Failed CCSP last week, had never failed in an exam before (passed CISSP in 2017), materials I used include
Sybex Official guide (cover to cover), do the bonus exams as well
CBK (cover to cover)
Sybex Practice test (twice, first time 70+%, second time 80+%)
AIO chapter test, do the Total tester as well
The question of the real exam is not really like the above tests I have done above, some are never mentioned before, and both questions and answers are long and looks like an English comprehension test, sometimes need to read two or three times. But anyway when I submitted to complete I felt confident to pass, however the outcome is 4 near proficient while 2 above proficient.
Saw from ISC website that " Candidates must score above the proficiency level in all Domains in order to pass the exam", is it applied to CCSP?
Would like to take the 2nd chance, how to move on? Any other material? (Heard that some guys recommend CSA security guide v4 ).
Could anybody advise? Thanks.
Yes, use the material for the CCSK. If you read the material, it will give you a better chance of passing. As before witht he CISSP that you passed, just remember the concepts.
You are right. I think a lot of people go into this exam when they do not have the experience.
I also think that if you look at the CCSK material as well as the Original ISC2 Guide, it is easier.
2. Yes... If you are below. You should have a passing grade for all domains.
It's explicitly stated that for adaptive exams (i.e. the English language version of the CISSP) you need to be above proficiency in all domains, but for linear exams (i.e. all other exams) it's only stated you need to score above 700: https: // www. isc2. org / register-for-exam/ exam-scoring-faqs (I can't post proper links yet.)
Just check it again. https: // www. isc2. org / register-for-exam/ exam-scoring-faqs
Q: What is the passing proficiency level for adaptive testing?
A: The proficiency is defined here as “passing standard.” Candidates must score above the proficiency level in all Domains in order to pass the exam.
Below proficiency – below the passing standard
Near proficiency – close to the passing standard
Above proficiency – above the passing standard
Wondering is it just for adaptive testing (e.g., CISSP) or is it for all other tests (e.g., CCSP)?
Maybe that is how you should take the exam!
Good luck !
