The CISSP Experiment
Well, my employer has obtained the services of (third party) to teach a CISSP course for two weeks. We have been supplied the books and the little practice exams from Shon Harris. To be honest, it's a boot-camp format so far. The instructor has been telling us points of interests and passages or words to highlight. I was a bit scared when he tried to explain tunnel and transport mode with IPSEC, as some of the students had no clue what he was talking about. And his only real experience was with IPSEC in a windows environment not say Cisco, Juniper, etc. I don't think I'll be ready to take the test right after the course is finished and plan on either reading the book or watching the CBTs. But from the initial impression, it seems a bit overwhelming with a 1,100 page book, 6-hour, 250 question test, but I'm confident I can do it.
