Thanks to this site I got a pass on the ISSMP. I pay for my own tests and materials so I wanted to get a 'go'.  I'm looking to take the ISSEP next so if anyone has advice on how best to prepare or what to expect, please send it my way. 

A. Study materials: ISSMP CBK, Sybex CISSP, AIO CISM, ISACA CISM manual (per advice of this site).

B. Study Questions: CISM QAE (per advice on this site). Focus on: knowing processes, roles, responsibilities and "bests".  

C. Test: no harder than CISSP or CISM. Same ISC2 style.

    It took around 4 months just due to work and life. Averaged around 6 hours a week. Spent a lot of time reading the CBK cover to cover which I regret. :wink:
