Practice test vs Actual test results???

the_hutchthe_hutch Posts: 827Banned
So its the last day of my CISSP bootcamp (take the exam tomorrow!!!), and we just took our practice exam, composed entirely of actual (retired) CISSP questions. I should have the results in a couple hours. But in the meantime, I was wondering how close the scores on your practice test were, compared to your actual score on the exam (for those that did the ISC2 bootcamp followed by the test)?

    You don't receive a score if you pass the exam, only if you fail. I was scoring in the low 80% range on my practice tests, and I passed with relative ease. 80% is typically what you should shoot for on practice tests to feel secure. I'm sure you'll do well, just stay calm. Good luck!

    Ah, I didn't realize this. Well thanks for the feedback.

    With the (ISC)2, a pass is a pass.

    On the ISC2 review seminar handbook questions I averaged about 65-70% but I passed on the first try. I'm pretty sure I got close to 995/1000. :D

    Just finished going over them. I got 81% on the practice test. So I'm hoping the actual test goes that well

    I avereged ~80% on the practice tests and i passed on the first attempt.
    Practice tests included cccure.org, the questions in AIO 5 and the questions in the "Official guide to the CISSP CBK".

    Good job on the practice test. If you did poorly in 1 or 2 domains, maybe just brush up on those domains at most. Definitely don't burn yourself out the night before the exam. It sounds like you're in good shape, so get a good night's sleep and kick butt tomorrow!

    JD's comment reminds me of The Fast and The Furious: "It doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile; winning's winning."
