Another CISSP Pass! Woo!

Hello all. I passed this morning!!! :) First try as well. Looks like I'm joining the good company of others that have recently passed on this forum.

I took a Global Knowledge class back in November and have been procrastinating the exam ever since, including a couple reschedulings. I found the class and instructor very informative. Besides the course and it's guide, my main resources were the Sybex CISSP book and the Syngress CISSP book (Eric Conrad, 1st Ed). I would flip flop between those two. Last night I got cozy and familiar with the Syngress 11th Hour CISSP Book (Conrad) and the class guide again. I found that to be a great refresher, very quick and to the point on all the domains, covering most everything. I never got very far into any of the Shon Harris books, or the CISSP classes available via Skillsoft. Tried some chapters and units, but stuck with the other resources.

Time to sit back, relax, celebrate... and then contemplate if I really should chase after the ISSAP like I initially considered back during class in November. Oh, and I guess update my resume and try to figure out the endorsement process :)

Sorry I haven't been involved much in this forum, I'm usually hanging/lurking in the Juniper one.

    Congratulations on your pass! A lot of folks recently have confirmed that you CAN pass on the first try - with or without previous certification testing experience. Well done!
    Feel the fear, and do it anyway!

    Congratulations! I've always wondered why the Sybex book has almost twice as much pages as any other study guide..

    @Coparah, You can read Shon Harris and attempt all questions. You can also attend a boot camp and it helps.

    Major congrats!
    Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.
