CISSP - My exam experience

I took my exam today (Dec. 8th 2011) in MD.

The exam took me 5 hours and 30mins to complete. I took the exam 3 times in the booklet before transferring them the scan-tron and reviewing one final time.

I paced myself and took small breaks every 50questions, or as needed. I was clear to underline words in the question that I thought were important to allow them to stand out.

The exam room was large and the tables were rather old, but the chairs were comfortable(thankfully).

All in all I feel rather confident about my test, but I can't say I passed for sure as these types of tests can easily go either way.

I used the following to prepare over a 2 month period.
PrepLogic Course/Practice Test good, but video course left a lot of holes.
Carnegie Mellon CERT video course / Practice Exam - Very useful
All-in-one Exam Guide 5th edition by Shon Harris
11th hour study guide by Eric Conrad (very good)
40% of Shon Harris's video course practice exams

All in all I feel PrepLogic's tests were very helpful. I was able to just focus in on my weak domains and test on them.

Can't wait to find out my results!
