Based on other posts here is the down and dirty

Date taken 12-17-2011
Place taken Louisville, Ky

Results recieved 1-18-2012

I took a class earlier last year and I brushed up on the ISC2 SSCP CBK a week beforehand. As anyone will tell you that it is not a reccommended course of action. I tackled the test in blocks of 10 ten questions and carefully transposed the answers onto the scantron. I finished the test in around 2 hours from what I remember. I now have to edit my resume so my boss can endorse me. At this time I don't have any plans to take the CISSP. While I was there I saw some of the people taking the CISSP looking rather frazzled.

    Congratulations on passing the SSCP. Yes, frazzled is a good way to describe how many of us felt after taking the CISSP.

    Hello and congratulations!

    Can you list your IT/InfoSec background for those of us trying to gauge experience/difficulty?

    Thanks!

    Congratulations on the pass, I also intend to take this one waaaay.. down the track, I have brought Darril's book and also the ISC2 Official Guide. (PS, If Darril is back in on this forum, tell him I said thanks heaps for a great guide on the Sec+ which I believe I passed thanks to his Book).

    I am already stressed about the exam and are no where near doing it yet!!
    Can I ask, did you find the ISC2 SSCP CBK mapped closely to the exam questions?

    Also I have been trying to find out info about the price of the SSCP exam, I live in Australia near Brisbane and am curious if any knows roughly what it would cost to do the SSCP here?

    Thanks for any info:)

    Glad to hear the Security+ book helped. Here's a link to (ISC)2's pricing page: https://www.isc2.org/uploadedFiles/Certification_Programs/exam_pricing.pdf.
