Started studying for the test with the online video boot camp from InfoSec on the 28th of January and used the Shon Harris book to fill in the gaps then I tested with cccure.org to reinforce the information.

    i already got my endorsement completed and submitted to ISC2 and they have replied back saying they have accepted it. How long until I get the official certification?

    Wow, that quickly?! I need to get my resume updated asap and start sending in my endorsement. Did you submit a full resume, or a simplified list of previous job roles and dates, listing the domains each roles covered and some of their responsibilities that tie into the domain? Just trying to figure out what all I need to include and the format.

    Congrats on being accepted and certified!

    I submitted a full resume with the portions I needed highlighted to prove my experience I helps that I also have six people with the CISSP where I work already so it was easy for me to get the endorsement since I have been in the same position for seven years now and have worked with some of them for over ten.

    I think Bundiman meant that his endorsement was received - certification isn't official until they send you the "congratulations" email.
    Feel the fear, and do it anyway!

    Congrats on passing CISSP! Endorsement was taking about 3 weeks last year, but recent reports have been shorter. At least you didn't have to wait six weeks for your test results!
