BOOO YAAA

I did not feel like I was doing very well on the test. But then I clicked the last button and:


95%


Ya baby!!!


Glad that one is over though. These all encompassing security tests are hard. THis and security plus were much harder than I expected them to be.

Now on the SSCP by the time I finish the SSCP I will eligible for the CISSP, so I dunno how I am going to go about it. Might finish up cisco stuff first and just go straight to CISSP.

    Congrats!

    The SSCP and CISSP do cover different material. Suck it up and do both ;)

    Thanks fellas..

    Ya I will probably do both of them (SSCP and CISSP).

    Having done sec+ before this test (and working in info sec) helped a lot with this test.

    Congratulations. I know you have been working on this one for a little all. What all did you do as a part of your preparation? Which resources did you find to be the most useful? I know you mentioned you work with many of the tools daily which seems to be the most important thing to me for this type of exam.

    The biggest help was the fact that I work with network, system and application security at work.


    Having said that, I used three major sources that really helped me. No single one was the "definative" book/source

    1) Official course material (traded a friend for all my ccna stuff, price wise it was pretty good for both of us)

    2) My company has a "books online" service and I used the offical review guide through that

    3) a book called: Hack the stack, I read this last. But it really tied things together. Basically it breaks down the OSI moodel and the attacks and mitigations at each layer.


    Then add in the security plus that really helped.

    start using this tools when you can:


    tcpdump or ethereal
    nessus
    nmap
    hping


    You will learn a lot just from doing that.

    Plus they are tools that help in the real world.

    Personally I use:

    Nmap
    tcpdump

    all the time. Especially tcpdump, but any tool that does something similar is priceless for a network or security admin.


    Books....


    Hacking exposed (read it years ago)
    offical course material
    hack the stack


    Those are all the books I used.



    If you need more detail on anything let me know I will be more than happy to help you with that.

    Thanks for the follow-up and congratulations again.

    thanks a lot.....and congratulations once again...so what do u plan next ..CISSP :P
  • livenliven Member Posts: 918
    Not sure about whats next. I am working on CCSP as we speak. I will probably try to knock out the SSCP. By the time I finish that I should have enough work exp to sit the CISSP. In all honesty that test will probably be some time next year.

    For now. Going to chill for a week or so... If I can...
