cissp exam

GarudaMinGarudaMin Member Posts: 204
I took the exam on Aug. 9th, got result today and I passed. I am proud to say that I am currently Associate of ISC^2.
Only problem is no one in my work is CISSP so how will I ever get voched for it. And I am currently Systems Administrator, so my work is related to a little bit of this domain, a little bit of that domain. I assume because I maintain networks, systems, computers to be up 24/7, it's considered operations security. I built and write servers, databases, applications, and work with accounts creations/modification/deletion and other things, so I assume those count as system design and architecture, authentication, database and application security. Would those count as experiences in 2 domains? What about helpdesk experience? Will that count into anything? Your input is greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

    Congrats on the pass!

    ISC(2) requires fulltime direct security experience, so I am unsure if typical system administrator duties would qualify.

    Write down the 10 domains and make a list of tasks that you feel would fall under each domain. Maybe this will help.

    If you don't mind, can you share your study methods and routine? I am about 8 weeks out from taking the exam myself, so I would be curious.

    You might be able to find someone here to endorse you: http://techexams.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=36120

    Congratulations on the pass! That's quite an accomplishment!

    I believe there is an option for ISC2 to endorse you if you can't find someone I think JD mentioned that in one of the threads in the ISC2 board.

    Yes, there is an option for the ISC2 to endorse your application should you not be able to locate an existing member to endorse you.

    On the (ISC)2 endorsement form there is a section where you can ask for a proxy endorser. I've never met anyone who has used a proxy, so I can't really say anything about the process.

    well for study method, i study Shon Harris's All in one book, about 1000 pages if u don't consider practice questions at the end of each chapter. What I did was I read 50 pages a day, write down important terms that I don't know. Since I write the definition out, it makes me remember more. Then I took a few days to re-read it. There were times I don't want to read it because I got bored. I already know almost all domains from my previous studies of CCNA, security+, etc.
    But yeah stick to your method and try to understand instead of memorizing and you will prevail. Good luck.
