2 weeks to go for CISSP

drk1980drk1980 Member Posts: 19 ■□□□□□□□□□
Hi everyone,

i have 2 weeks to go before i take the cissp exam.
i have gone through the AIO 5th edition and have also done numerous quizzes on cccure.org (free quizzes)

I am unsure on what to do for the next 14 days... i have some SANS audio seminar from a friend which i plan to listen and also plan to go through some NIST documents.
I also plan to go through the last-minute study materials available on cccure.

Or should i just go through AIO once again - a quick review?


Is there anything that i am missingicon_rolleyes.gif

    I would go back through the AIO for the remainder of the time, but the last day, just glance over it, and make sure you get a good night's rest the night before, no hangover, ;) so you will be refreshed... it is a grueling exam and your head will hurt afterwards, and just relax and take it one question at a time.

    Good luck!

    It might be wise to actually prepare your body and mind for a 6 hour / 250 question exam. If you can build your test taking endurance now, without burning out, it could pay dividends come test time. Figure out what time the exam is going to begin and during that time frame for the next week or two run through lots of questions so that your mind is prepared.

    Good Luck!!

    In the final two weeks you are best to prepare with flash cards and practice exam questions. Forcing yourself to do several hundred questions at a sitting is a good mental stamina builind exercise. And start studying the "**** sheet" notes you should have been taking as you studied the heavy material.

    Good luck!

    Thanks everyone for your valuable inputs :).

    I have been taking the cccure quizzes and have been scoring 80-88% consistently. But the few questions where i go wrong are the ones that worry me.
    I see that BCP-DR is one domain that i need to refresh again.

    And yes i will be taking 1 full 6 hour mock test... (planning to use AIO 4th edition quizzes on the CD)

    Also i have the notes which i took all along while studying and will go through it too...

    I also need to stop being nervous (about BCP-DR and about the exam) icon_redface.gif

    The CISSP for Dummies 3rd edition is a good quick read for this purpose. That and a lot of practice questions should do the trick. I have about 60 days left until my exam and it's time for me to buckle it down and go for it. Good luck on your exam.

    I just saw this yesterday: Eric Conrad: 500 Free CISSP® Practice Questions

    I haven't looked at them, but someone studying might find them useful.

    And if the above link has disappeared, here's the direct link: Elsevier: conrad: CISSP Study Guide Certification

    On that page Eric Conrad also has audio discussions of each CISSP CBK domain.

    Is the Flash player popping up when you click the link? If not, shoot an email to Syngress' customer support.

    MY exam On this Saturday 11,2010.I have only 2 days left.

    Do you have any suggestion for me for what I have to do in this 2 days.I just completed following materials.

    CISSP AIO. Also Mkae 50 pages note from my own words with CD questions.
    CISSP :The Master of Ten Domains
    CERT VTE Training.
    Around 4-5 NIST Documents.
    Few CISSP CBT nuggets.

    What else I have to do next 2 days?
  • colemiccolemic Member Posts: 1,568 ■■■■■■■□□□
    The last day for sure - take it easy! You've put in a lot of hard workk to this point, cramming until your head hurts won't help you any. Do something relaxing, don't let it overwhelm you... go for a run, go swim, lift weights, whatever, just relax and most importantly get the best rest you can, and attack it with confidence.

    Good luck!

    Hello drk1980

    any news about the results. atleast for those who sat on Aug28/29. Desperately waiting for the results. unable to control anxiety. Such a prolonged waiting is really miserable.

    The CISSP for Dummies 3rd edition is a good quick read for this purpose. That and a lot of practice questions should do the trick. I have about 60 days left until my exam and it's time for me to buckle it down and go for it. Good luck on your exam.
    For a quick read, I would highly recommend the Mike Meyers CISSP Passport. The book is no longer in print, it's a little dates, but the core concepts are still applicable to the CISSP exam. It's a light easy read, perfect for a final review or an introduction to the CISSP. I valued that more than the CISSP for Dummies.
