I found it to be quite challenging, not so much in the technical sense, but making sure I was answering questions the "ISC2 way". Took a bit over 5 hours take the exam and the rest of the time to review. I was exhausted by the end. I wanted to celebrate a bit more after getting the print out, but the test proctor was a bit stoic. :-/

I've been in IT for about 16 years, the past 10 of which I've been doing some sort of firewall engineering/administration among other network related tasks.

I really didn't find that any one study resource nailed it. It really took a combination of resources:
Shon Harris AIO 5th edition
Shon Harris Practice Exams 2nd Edition
CCCure Paid Questions (went through the set 1 1/2 times)
CISSP Exam Questions by Eddie Vi
CISSP Study Guide by Stewart, Tittel, and Chapple
Flash cards Deluxe app on ipad mini.
This site!! Thank you all for your posts.

What really really helped was having all of these resources on my ipad mini. Very convenient, had it with me all the time, could quickly search a book, or get a better understanding by hitting the web.

So glad to have gotten it done. Now I can get back to my family. Again thank you all!
