Beginning CCSP Study

Hello All,
Been awhile since I've posted.  I'm just beginning to study for the CCSP exam.  First of all I'm creating a plan.  Seen some posts regarding resources.  Trying to decide where to invest my $$.  Thoughts?
Thank you in advance for any guidance you might provide!

    I passed in May 2019 using the following materials:

    CCSP (ISC)2 Certified Cloud Security Professional Official Study Guide
    Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CCSP CBK
    CCSP Official (ISC)2 Practice Tests

    Good luck!
    Alphabet soup from (ISC)2, ISACA, GIAC, EC-Council, Microsoft, ITIL, Cisco, Scrum, and more.

    2021 goals: AZ-303, AZ-304, maybe TOGAF and more ISACA

    A couple ways of doing this one. I did the CCSK first as it gave me a good grounding and material is free. I found that this covered a lot of the CCSP material as well. I supplemented this by doing practice questions with the Sybex official book and Boson - which I found was the best source. A really underused one in my opinion. As I had done AWS solution architecture previously this helped me personally also. So really depends on what you already know about cloud. I also personally found this exam a lot harder than CISSP. Was lucky to pass both first time though.

    To follow @scasc, I've heard multiple recommendations to do the CCSK first and the CCSP after. People new to "The Cloud" should have a look at the CompTIA Cloud Essentials and Cloud+ certification material first.
